Genius MicroNeedling with RF in Los Angeles

The Genius™ RF MicroNeedling skin tightening system is a multiple problem-solver designed to provide individually customized treatment for:

  • Mild to moderate skin looseness and wrinkling
  • Acne scarring

What makes the Genius uniquely customizable is a feature called “Intelligent RF Delivery” that fine-tunes the customizations in real time. Resolving the challenges of skin type, skin thickness, age considerations, and varying levels of tissue resistance to energy delivery caused by varying skin density can be technologically difficult. With Genius MicroNeedling with RF in Los Angeles, all the variables have been addressed and overcome.

What Can GENIUS RF MicroNeedling Do?

Genius MicroNeedling with RF in treatments in Los Angeles cause a new production of collagen and elastin which in turn improves scars, skin texture, and wrinkles and reduces laxity in these area:

  • Face
  • Neck & Chest
  • Body areas with lax skin

Genius’s “real time” energy monitoring and adjustment makes the system customize itself to YOUR skin’s thickness and energy resistance on every pulse. That means you’ll not be over-treated or under-treated for the goal of the treatment.

How Does RF MicroNeedling Work?

Genius in Los Angeles works by delivering radio-frequency energy through gold-plated needles, stimulating your own body’s collagen and elastin production. By providing “real-time” feedback, the energy delivered is precise for each patient, each treatment, and each pass with the microneedles.

The tiny microneedles “injure” the skin. This is purposeful and is the basis of how microneedling works, no matter what device is used. These tiny microneedles penetrate at 3 different levels with the Genius. At the same time, RF energy heats the tissue to a level that causes new collagen production.

Important to note: The RF energy is delivered in tissue that’s under the top layers, so the upper layers of skin that might otherwise respond with bounceback pigment are spared from the heat. (This is a crucial difference between laser and RF and why darker skin types are more at risk from laser, which affects all the layers.)

Is Treatment With the Genius System Painful?

There is no truly pain-free or discomfort-free procedure that’s effective for inducing the body to create new collagen. You’ll receive topical numbing, which works very well. We use a cold skin roller to help take away the heat sensation of Genius in Los Angeles.

What Should I Expect After the Procedure?

Expect mild redness and swelling, which can last up to several days. You may look as if you have a sunburn. Scattered pinpoint bleeding, mild bruising, and temporary marks from the needles are a possibility and should not be a concern.

Post-treatment skin will be sensitive. Avoid aggressive cleansing and sun exposure for 14 days, and do not use products other than the ones recommended. You’ll be instructed on how to take care of your skin to avoid problems during healing after Los Angeles Genius MicroNeedling with RF.

How Quickly Will I See Results?

The process of collagen building takes time. It is possible to see initial improvements within the first month, but generally, you should expect final results about six months after your last Genius MicroNeedling with RF session in Los Angeles. Collagen rebuild is not immediate, so be patient.


How Long Do Results Last?

Expect results to last two to three years. Follow-up “maintenance” Genius treatments in Los Angeles on a yearly basis will help keep new collagen production at higher levels.

Will I Need More Than One Treatment?

Depending on the level of scarring, laxity, or general aging effects, most patients in Los Angeles will require several Genius sessions for the best results.

Why Genius is Different & Better

Earlier devices using radio frequency energy were programmed on unchanging settings with manually required adjustments.

Although this programming delivered good results, the elevation to “real-time” energy monitoring and adjustment makes the system customize itself to YOUR skin’s thickness and energy resistance on every pulse.

That means you’ll not be over-treated or under-treated for the goal of the treatment.

  • No guesswork – your provider gets instant feedback with every single pulse
  • 1,000’s of clinical tests provide optimized protocols for each skin type and age
  • Enhanced precision and comfort
  • Low downtime and spaced treatment sessions
  • The only system to measure delivered energy

Who is a Genius Candidate?

The uniqueness of radio frequency is that it is safe for all skin types and tones. Where laser may not be the best option for skin with darker tones, RF treatments bypass most of the impact of unwanted pigment reactions that skin with high pigment levels can experience. That means the Los Angeles Genius is an excellent match for all skin types, colors, and genetic backgrounds, including Asian, Middle Eastern, African American, and Hispanic.

How Genius Increases Volume in the Skin

Whether from aging or scarring, the loss of tissue volume is what calls attention to wrinkles or skin defects. By stimulating an increase in collagen and the processes of new collagen creation, skin becomes smoother as well as healthier-looking.
