Genius® RF Microneedling Skin Lifting in Reno, NV
Whether from age, lift events, or lifestyle, many men and women develop wrinkles, fine lines, and other skin blemishes on their face and body. While these skin imperfections can cause many people to feel self-conscious, cosmetic treatments can help to reduce the presence and appearance of these skin issues to help give patients clear skin and improved comfort in the way they look.
Two of the most trusted and successful cosmetic treatment methods available to rejuvenate the skin are microneedling and radiofrequency energy treatments. With the Genius® RF microneedling and skin lifting device, designed by Lutronic Intelligent Care™, these technologies are combined to give patients optimal results with minimal pain and downtime. After micro-injuries are created by microneedles, RF energy is used to help create long-lasting improvement to your skin aesthetic.Schedule a Consultation
What Does My Genius® RF Skin Lifting Procedure Include?
Your Genius® RF Skin Lifting Consultation
One of the most important aspects of any plastic surgery procedure or cosmetic treatment is your consultation.
At your Genius® RF consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals, and your provider will evaluate your skin conditions to determine if Genius® RF microneedling is the right treatment for you.
Additionally, at your consultation, your provider will provide you with information about the treatment as well as any pre- and post-treatment instructions you may need. You will also have the chance to ask any questions you have about the treatment, recovery period, or results.
Your Genius® RF Skin Lifting Procedure
A topical ointment will be applied to the treatment areas of your skin. This will help to alleviate any discomfort and pain you may experience during the Genius® RF treatment.
Once the topical ointment has been applied, the Genius® RF skin lifting handheld device is directed to your skin. Tiny needles pierce your skin at varying levels, creating micro-injuries.
These micro-injuries jumpstart your body into healing itself with new, strong skin. During the microneedling treatment, radiofrequency heat is directed through the micro-injury channels. This RF heat helps to stimulate the collagen and elastin, which results in refreshed and youthful skin.
While your Genius® RF skin lifting treatment can give you stunning results when performed as a standalone procedure, combining your RF microneedling treatment with other non-surgical procedures can give you even more dramatic results.
Some of the best procedures to combine with your Genius® RF microneedling treatment include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic injectables
- Dermal fillers (such as JUVÉDERM® injectable treatments, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable treatments, and KYBELLA® injectable treatment)
- Chemical peels
- Laser treatments
What Are Your Concerns About Genius® RF Skin Lifting?
After your Genius® RF treatment, you will likely experience some redness and swelling. Additionally, bruising and some tenderness and discomfort are to be expected. These side effects generally last for two to three days. Some patients have reported experiencing skin breakouts during the first one to two weeks following their treatment, though this is not consistent with all patients’ experiences.
The Genius® RF microneedling and skin lifting treatment is meant to minimize or erase the appearance of scars on your skin, which means that you should not expect to have any scars that result from your treatment.
Genius® RF skin lifting cost varies for each patient and procedure and is dependent on several factors, including the extent of correction needed and the number of areas being treated.
During your consultation, you will receive a cost estimate for your procedure. Additionally, we are happy to offer financing options to our patients.
Because of the nature of this treatment, you will likely experience some discomfort. However, the topical ointment that is applied to your skin before the treatment should significantly reduce any pain you feel. You also have the option of oral pain relievers and nitrous oxide.
