Genius: A More Intelligent, Effective Treatment for Hyperhidrosis
Sweating is the body’s mechanism to cool itself when the body temperature rises if they are in a hot environment or are anxious or under stress. People suffering from hyperhidrosis exceeds such normal sweating.
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system characterized by excessive sweating not necessarily related to heat or exercise. The sweating can affect a specific area or the whole body. It is not a life-threatening condition, but it can cause embarrassment and take a mental toil on the person.
In recent years, intradermal microneedle radiofrequency treatment has shown promising results in treating hyperhidrosis.
Genius: Intelligent RF micro-needling system
Similar to the INIFINI treatment, Genius uses a RadioFrequency (RF) technology to deliver thermal energy through micro-needles into the dermis. It works by creating controlled micro-puncture wounds on the skin’s surface, which acts as delivery channels for fractional RF heat to deliver into the skin using 49 microscopic needles.
The treatment destroys eccrine glands, a major sweat gland of the human body. It does so by a process of thermolysis at the deep dermis while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue. With the impairment of the eccrine glands, the production of excess uncontrolled perspiration will be reduced.
Can Genius be combined with other hyperhidrosis treatment?
In most cases, hyperhidrosis can be treated with Genius RF micro-needling on its own without any other treatments.
However, your doctor may combine Genius RF micro-needling treatment with other hyperhidrosis treatments such as micro-botox treatment to deactivate the sweat glands in more severe cases.
How many sessions are required?
It depends on the severity of your condition. In some cases, 1 treatment should suffice. In more severe cases, we recommend a programme of 2 treatments to see better treatment outcome.
What are the side effects and downtime?
Side effects of the treatment are usually mild in nature. You may experience pinpoint bleeding with some bruising. If your skin is sensitive, you may experience some swelling for a few days. Most people should notice the side effects to subside within 3 to 4 days.
