Microneedling Boca Raton
Looking for a non-invasive treatment to help with skin concerns? Microneedling may be the perfect solution for you! This procedure uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, which trigger the body to produce new collagen and elastin.
Results can include improved skin tone, texture, and firmness. If you’re interested in learning more about microneedling in Boca Raton, keep reading to learn all about Sanctuary Medical’s Genius microneedling procedure!
We Call It “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, we often use Genius to treat 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.
Rejuvenate Your Skin, Freeze The Age
We will personalize your Genius treatment based on your specific concerns, desired outcome, and targeted skin area. We will perform this treatment in-office at Sanctuary Medical Center in Boca Raton. Some areas that are commonly treated are the face, neck, abdomen, and thighs.
During your Genius treatment, radiofrequency energy will be administered to the target area of the 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.
A Solution to Many Problems
The Genius microneedling RF treatment can improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Acne scars
Genius can provide you with noticeable results after just one treatment. However, for optimal results, we may recommend a series of treatments.

No, Microneedling Doesn’t Hurt
Genius is a minimally-invasive procedure that is well-tolerated by most patients. A topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin before treatment to ensure comfort.
You may experience some redness and swelling after your treatment, but this typically subsides within a few days.
Microneedling Triggers Skin’s Own Healing Process
The micro-wounds created by the microneedles on the surface of your skin during treatment will stimulate your body’s natural healing response. This will cause an increase in collagen and elastin production, resulting in healthier, more youthful skin.
The increase in collagen can also help to improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, making you appear more youthful.
Who’s a Candidate for Genius?
Genius is an excellent treatment option for both men and women who are looking to improve the overall quality of their skin.
Genius may be right for you if you have concerns about signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, or uneven skin texture and tone. This treatment can also help to improve the appearance of acne scars.
Because Genius is a minimally-invasive procedure, it has few side effects and is safe for most skin types.

Before & After

Here are common questions we get about Genius micrneedling procedures.
What happens after a Genius treatment?
Our patients can expect their Genius treatment to last about 15-30 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 minor pin-point bleeding from where the needles penetrated the skin, as well as slight soreness or redness.
This will typically fade over the next day or two and usually won’t get in the way of your regular routine.
How soon after microneedling can I wear makeup?
We recommend that patients wait at least 24 hours before applying makeup or any other products to the treatment area.
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 to four treatment sessions at roughly one-month intervals.
How long will it take to see results?
Results will appear gradually and are most noticeable at about three months. Many of our patients continue to see results for a few years and can maintain youthful skin with regular Genius treatment sessions (individual results may vary).
Are there any side effects?
Microneedling is considered a low-risk procedure with little to no downtime. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential side effects that include but are not limited to swelling, redness, bruising, infection, and itching. You may also have some pinpoint bleeding from the microneedle wounds.
These side effects are usually temporary and will resolve within a few days.
What are the things that I have to follow after microneedling?
To help ensure optimal results, we recommend that patients avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen daily. Patients should also avoid using any exfoliating products or treatments during this time.
