Genius: Intelligent System For More Effective Skin Tightening Result
Genius uses a unique and intelligent technology to insulate and protect the top layers of the skin, while delivering RadioFrequency (RF) 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 dual action of creating micro-puncture wounds and delivering of precise RF energy into the dermis stimulate the skin’s collagen and elastin production, inducing your body to kick-start the natural healing process for firmer, tighter, and younger-looking skin.
How does Genius improve skin laxity?
Its RF technology is specially designed to address sagging skin wrinkles and changes in skin’s texture caused by premature ageing. Its skin-lifting capabilities are bolstered by its 3-dimensional approach to delivering precise RF energy to create tissue volumization.
How is Genius different from INFINI?
In December 2018, Genius obtained FDA clearance for skin rejuvenation. Genius uses ultrafine needles to induce controlled damage to the skin. By using ultrafine needles, it induces less superficial damage to the skin, reducing the discomfort and downtime often associated with micro-needling treatments.
Lutronic made improvements to Genius compared to its predecessor, the INFINI. Genius uses an intelligent handpiece which analyses the skin before it delivers the shot, allowing for real-time adaptation of needle penetration depth to account for varying skin thickness and texture. By delivering each shot with customized precision, you can expect the result to be more impressive and long-lasting as compared to INFINI.
Can Genius be combined with other skin lifting treatments?
Absolutely. Although Genius is a fantastic skin tightening treatment, it can also be combined with other treatments such as Ultherapy, TriPollar and thread lift to achieve a more dramatic result.
Although you may see some results in a few days, it may take 3 to 4 weeks to see the optimal result from the treatment as collagen and elastin take time to develop.
What is the experience like during the treatment?
There may be some discomfort during the treatment depending on your tolerance for pain. During the initial consultation with the doctor, your doctor will determine the most appropriate method to alleviate any discomfort and make the treatment a comfortable one for you.
During the treatment, you may feel some heat and pressure on the area being treated.
How many sessions are required?
Although 1 session is enough to see visible skin lifting result, we encourage patients to undergo 2 to 3 sessions to achieve a longer-lasting skin lifting and volumization result.
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. In fact, some people are able to return to work the next day with minimal discomfort.
