Genius: A Smarter, More Advanced Treatment for Body Tightening
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 to tighten loose skin on your body. Using a handpiece specially designed for the body, it can treat any area of the body that has loose skin such as tummy, arms and thighs with ease. The handpiece can treat the deepest layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin to tighten excess, loose skin and improve skin texture.
Can Genius be combined with other body tightening treatments?
Yes. In fact, we encourage patients to combine Genius RF micro-needling treatment with other body tightening treatments such as TriLipo as they complement each other to achieve the best outcome for you. TriLipo, a non-invasive energy device, works by using RF energy to induce deep volumetric heating and kickstart internal muscle contraction to yield maximum fat removal.
For people with some excess fat on the body, combining Genius body tightening treatment with either fat freeze treatment and/or Ultherapy can effectively achieve skin tightening and fat loss without going under the knife.
How soon can I see results?
You can expect to see some changes in 4 to 5 days after the first session of Genius body tightening treatment. However, Genius works by stimulating your body to create new collagen and remodel the connective tissue fibers. This means that over the next 2 to 3 months, your body will continue to produce new collagen fibers and you will typically see improvement over the next 4 to 6 months.
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.
How long will the result last?
Unlike other body contouring procedures, Genius RF micro-needling treatment has long-lasting results as it stimulates your body to naturally create collagen. With proper diet and exercise, the effects can last for several years.
