Rough skin texture, a blotchy or uneven tone, and reduced elasticity can all cause your complexion to look unhealthy or aged. Unfortunately, a large number of men and women experience these concerns in one combination or another. Luckily, aesthetic medicine has progressed beyond the point of requiring surgical procedures to revitalize the health and beauty of your skin. Genius™ RF microneedling is a powerful and highly effective non-surgical technology designed to renew the tone and texture of your skin without downtime, surgery, or a lengthy treatment process. While Genius™ offers excellent results in facial rejuvenation, treatment can also be performed on the chest, abdomen, or other parts of the face and body affected by skin inelasticity.
What is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a highly effective skincare therapy that involves making thousands of tiny micro-perforations in the skin via a handheld applicator coated in ultra-fine, gold-plated needles. These micro-injuries kickstart the natural healing mechanisms in the skin, allowing dead, dull skin cells to be replaced with newer, softer skin. The result is a smoother, healthier-looking, and more radiant skin tone with reduced acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles, among other common skin imperfections. Genius™ also uniquely incorporates RF, or “radiofrequency,” energy during the microneedling process, which gently heats the skin to tighten and firm sagging tissues.
How is Treatment with Genius™ Microneedling Performed?
RF microneedling with Genius™ is performed in-office and takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes depending on the extent of your concerns. Our skilled aesthetician will first meet with you to discuss your goals and give you a thorough understanding of what you can expect during treatment. Although the process is not described as painful, a topical numbing agent is applied to the face before microneedling to enhance your comfort during treatment.
Once we gain a sense of your needs, the Genius™ system is optimized according to your age, level of sun exposure, tissue thickness, depth of treatment, and other variables. This provides a completely personalized treatment to achieve your skincare goals. Using the Genius™ microneedling handpiece, your aesthetician will make several passes over your face until the desired outcome is attained. Patients typically report the sensation as light pressure and gentle heat from the radiofrequency energy. After treatment, a soothing cream will be applied to the face and you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately. There is no downtime necessary, but redness should be expected and we encourage you to stay out of the sun until your skin has healed. Visible improvement can be noticeable right away, but the results should continue to get better over the following months.
How Much Does Genius™ Microneedling Cost?
Genius™ microneedling is a highly customized process tailored to the concerns, needs, and skin type of each patient. While the cost of Genius™ varies according to the details of your treatment plan, this advanced skincare therapy is generally $1,100 per treatment for those in the Westchester and Scarsdale areas. Three treatments spaced one month apart are typically required to achieve the most optimal results.
We believe that every patient should be able to enjoy the confidence of beautiful, healthy skin, which is why our practice accepts plastic surgery financing plans from CareCredit® and ALPHAEON™ Credit. Once approved, these reputable lending companies can give qualified patients a more manageable way to pay for their treatment based on their unique budget.
