RADIOFREQUENCY (RF) MICRONEEDLING
Boost collagen & elastin production to treat wrinkles, crepey skin, and scarring.
WHY RF MICRONEEDLING?
RadioFrequency (RF) Microneedling is one of the latest advancements in rejuvenative skincare technology. This treatment uses ultrafine needles to create micro injuries while delivering radiofrequency energy to the perfect depth in the skin, allowing you to both tighten skin and improve surface texture at the same time. You’ll love this treatment as your new go-to for boosting collagen and elastin production, which will result in the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, crepey skin, and scarring.

WHAT TO EXPECT
A nurse will start by taking your Visia picture to get a baseline and assess your skin’s progress. Your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied 20-30 minutes prior to your treatment.
Your provider will then prepare the Genius RF Microneedling device and begin treatment. The device is gently applied across your skin, creating thousands of microscopic channels in the skin and delivering the RadioFrequency energy to a predetermined depth. The treatment is very tolerable and the sensation is comparable to a rough cat’s tongue. Your skin’s repair process, or Collagen Induction Therapy, begins almost immediately and fibroblasts start synthesizing new collagen.
Your skin may be pink and there may be a small amount of pinpoint bleeding. Most patients experience mild redness and swelling that resolves in 1-2 days. It is important not to apply anything other than what is recommended to the treated skin, especially for the first 12-24 hours, as the micro-injuries need time to heal. You can wash your face 12 hours after the procedure and we encourage you to use mineral-based make-up as this is healthier for the skin.
