GENIUS is a new dimension in radiofrequency (RF) technology used to address sagging skin, wrinkles, and changes in the skin’s texture. It uses a 3-dimensional approach of delivering RF energy to create tissue volumization. If you are ready to turn back the clock on those early signs of aging, GENIUS may be a good choice for you.
How does Genius work?
Lutronic GENIUS uses unique and intelligent technology to help protect the top layers of the skin while providing real-time feedback during the procedure. This allow for treatments on all skin types and colors, including tanned skin. Genius treatments help provide lasting unparalleled outcomes with Intelligent Radio-frequency (RF) technology. The goal is to stimulate collagen production for impressive and long-lasting results.
What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is the process of using very small sterilized needles on the skin. Traditional micro needling utilizes a stamp or roller and is not associated with a light or energy device. The GENIUS hand piece contains 49 microscopic needles that are deployed through the skin’s surface. Once deployed, the micro-needle tips conduct radio frequency energy into predetermined depths of the dermis.
What skin conditions can be treated with GENIUS?
- Skin Tightening resulting in smoother looking skin
- Scar Remodeling
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
- Acne Scarring
- Reducing pore size
Can GENIUS be combined with other procedures?
GENIUS can be combined with many other different treatments such as IPL to remove dark spots and broken capillaries. Dermal Fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can enhance the effect of skin tightening. Typically 2-4 treatments are recommended for optimum effect. These treatments should be spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
Although you may see positive results from your treatment session right away, it may be a month or two that you see the final result. By that time, collagen production will have kicked in, and your skin should sport a more youthful glow with a visible reduction in skin laxity and fine lines.
Are there any side effects and or/downtime?
Side effects following GENIUS are mild in nature, making this minimal downtime treatment. For patients with very vascular skin, there may be mild pinpoint bleeding and a very small chance of bruising. More typically the skin may stay red for 2-3 days. Most patients can resume their normal routine the next day.
On its own, GENIUS is an effective method of skin tightening and anti-aging. It can also be paired with other procedures, such as injectable treatments, to produce an even more dramatic result.
