During the microneedling aspect of the GENIUS treatment, tiny channels are punctured into the skin. The process is also fractional, which means that only certain areas of skin are targeted, leading to accelerated healing. Once the microscopic needles have penetrated the skin, mild electricity (radiofrequency waves) works with the body's natural tendency to produce collagen. The patented microneedle technology targets tissue deep below the surface, thus reaching wrinkles where they originate. The delivery of radiofrequency energy into the deep skin tissues stimulates the reproduction of collagen in multiple layers of the dermis. The increase in production progressively rebuilds the protein matrix for a smoother, more refined appearance. On the surface, healthy tissues are not disturbed by the gentle thermal energy of our GENIUS device.
GENIUS has a short recovery period, and results can be seen as quickly as 1 week. However, collagen will continue to build for 4-6 weeks, with improvements being seen as long as 6 months after the treatment. The fact that treatment is conducted via a microneedle to cells beneath the skin's surface makes GENIUS an appropriate treatment for all skin tones, including dark and tanned skin. Even patients with pigmented lesions and melasma can benefit from this cosmetic procedure.
