What is Genius?
Genius is a non-surgical skin treatment that combines the benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling to rejuvenate aging skin and restore a more youthful appearance. At Sanctuary Medical Center, Genius is often used for the treatment of visible scars such as acne scarring.
Genius works by creating micro-wounds in the dermis and epidermis layers of your skin. This triggers your body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen and elastin. This makes Genius a great, effective option for men and women looking for an overall improvement in the quality of their skin.
The Genius Procedure
Your Genius treatment will be personalized based on your specific concerns, desired outcome, and area of skin being targeted. This treatment will be performed in-office at Sanctuary Medical Center in Boca Raton.
During your Genius treatment, radiofrequency energy will be administered to the target area of skin through tiny microneedles using Genius’ specially designed handpiece. The microneedles penetrate into the middle layer of skin to heal it from the inside out. This will deliver targeted heating of the underlying layers of skin, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin—the essential building blocks for healthy, youthful skin.
What happens after an Genius treatment?
Our patients can expect their Genius treatment to last about 45 minutes, but this time will vary based on each specific case and the size of the area being treated. After your Genius treatment, you may experience some minor pin-point bleeding from where the needles penetrated the skin, as well as some slight soreness or redness. This will typically fade over the next day or two and normally won’t get in the way of your normal routine.
How many Genius treatments will be needed and when will I notice the results?
The number of Genius treatment sessions needed to achieve optimal results will vary based on the existing condition of your skin and your goal outcome. We typically recommend about three treatment sessions at roughly one month intervals. Results will appear gradually and are most noticeable at about six months. Many of our patients continue to see results for up to two years and can maintain youthful skin with regular Genius treatment sessions (individual results may vary).
