Genius RF Microneedling

Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling in NYC Upper East Side | Park Avenue Dermatology

As collagen and elastin production slow with age, our skin begins to exhibit the dreaded signs of aging, such as skin laxity, deep lines, and wrinkles. You may notice that your skin no longer has the youthful, tight appearance you once enjoyed in your earlier years. Do not worry; at Park Ave Derm, we have treatments here to address your concerns. Treatments like radiofrequency microneedling can help improve and enhance your skin’s overall appearance as we age. These procedures work by helping to boost your skin’s natural ability to produce vital proteins such as collagen and elastin. 

Genius® RF Microneedling by Lutronic® is an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that enhances the benefits of traditional microneedling by incorporating radiofrequency energy. This technique targets the skin’s deepest layers to boost collagen and elastin production, resulting in tighter skin, enhanced texture, softened wrinkles, and even more well-defined and youthful bone structure.

At Park Avenue Dermatology, we utilize this cutting-edge technology to offer our patients the very best results, helping them to feel confident in their appearance.  Our expert providers customize your Genius® RF procedures to help you achieve your overarching aesthetic goals. By focusing on exemplary care and natural-looking results, Park Ave Derm is your choice as one of the best Genius RF microneedling providers in New York City.

What is Genius® RF Microneedling in NYC?

Genius® RF Microneedling is an advanced, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines two effective techniques: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. This innovative procedure aims to enhance the texture, tone, and overall health of the skin to address a variety of skin concerns, including: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Crepey skin
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage
  • Enlarged pores
  • Scarring, including acne, surgical, and stretch marks
  • Loose skin/Skin laxity

Genius® RF Microneedling treatments remodel the skin for long-term results with minimal downtime. Typically, most patients achieve optimal results with a series of three to four sessions scheduled four to six weeks apart.

How Does Manhattan Genius® RF Work?

The Genius® RF Microneedling process involves the use of a specialized device equipped with fine, gold-plated needles. These needles create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. As the needles penetrate the skin, they simultaneously emit RF energy, which heats the deeper layers of the skin, specifically the dermis, where most of the proteins exist that allow our skin to feel tight and appear smooth. This controlled form of skin injury stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are crucial proteins responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness, elasticity, and youthful appearance.

This dual-action approach is what sets Genius® RF Microneedling apart from traditional microneedling treatments. While conventional microneedling works primarily on the skin’s surface, the addition of RF energy allows for deeper penetration and more significant rejuvenation effects. The RF energy enhances the natural healing process, leading to a more pronounced improvement in skin texture, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, tightening of sagging skin, and even diminishment of acne/surgical scars and pores.

Treatments are customized to your skin quality, location of treatment, thickness, and energy resistance. Throughout your session, our experts monitor the measured feedback to ensure you receive the appropriate settings for your best possible outcome.

Am I a Good Candidate for Genius® RF Microneedling in NYC?

Another advantage of Genius® RF Microneedling is its suitability for various skin types and tones. Unlike some laser treatments that might not be safe for darker skin tones, this method is generally considered safe for all. Additionally, the procedure is customizable, with adjustments in needle depth and RF energy levels to cater to individual skin concerns and sensitivities.

Exemplary candidates for Upper East Side Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling procedures should:

  • Be in good overall health, living a healthy lifestyle
  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Have skin concerns including but not limited to: skin laxity, texture and tone
  • Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have realistic expectations and a positive outlook
  • Understand the risks and benefits
  • Do not have any bleeding or clotting disorders
  • Clinical evidence of appropriate skin concerns

Those who are experiencing active skin conditions in the treatment area, such as eczema, psoriasis, severe cystic acne, or other skin infections, should wait until the condition clears up.

Genius® RF Microneedling in NYC Procedure Overview

On the day of your Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling procedure, we ask you to come to our office with thoroughly cleansed skin. You should not apply any cosmetics, lotions, or sunscreen. Your microneedling provider will review the details of your procedure and answer any final questions you have.

While Genius® RF Microneedling treatments are generally well tolerated, a topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure your comfort. Be sure to discuss your pain concerns with your provider prior to beginning your procedure. You should arrive 30 minutes early to your procedure to ensure enough time for numbing.

Our expert providers will perform the Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling device on your skin, delivering slightly uncomfortable pulses of radiofrequency energy. You may experience heat, pressure, and some pain during the treatment.

Treatment sessions may take 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area and condition being treated.

During your consultation, we will determine the number of treatments necessary to accomplish your aesthetic goals. While some patients will see dramatic results after one treatment, most patients typically require a series of two to four sessions scheduled four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling Recovery in NYC

Immediately following your treatment, you may use a clean, towel-wrapped ice pack to soothe the skin. Apply post-treatment moisturizer as directed. Light and nonirritating moisturizer and face washes are ideal. You will be given a post-care sheet to highlight the important post-care instructions.

You will experience redness and swelling the few days following the procedure and possibly some mild scaling and crusting. It is very important to avoid picking your skin over scrubbing and rubbing it post-procedure. Dryness and any minor crusting should fully resolve in three to five days. Other reactions may include a burning sensation, irritation, or itching. These effects should resolve within a few hours to a day from the completion of your procedure. 

After your Genius® RF microneedling session, it’s important to thoroughly follow all skincare instructions to ensure optimal healing. As your skin will be sensitive post-treatment, you should avoid harsh cleansers or aggressive cleansing of the skin, sun exposure, strenuous activities, and excessive heat for at least a week. It’s important to wear sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher and use protective clothing as the skin heals.

Patients typically experience redness, swelling, bruising, and pinpoint bleeding that should subside within 24 to 48 hours. After this period, you may resume normal daily activities, including wearing makeup.

When Will I See My NYC Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling Results & How Long Will Results Last?

Many patients experience visible improvements to their skin, including a brighter skin tone and more supple, radiant skin in just a few days. However, it takes time for the body to build new collagen, so results will continue to improve for three to six months after your last session.

Following your Genius® RF Microneedling procedure, you can expect that your results will last two to three years, depending on your skincare regimen and sun avoidance techniques. Our experts may recommend annual maintenance treatments to help stimulate collagen production.

How Much Does Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling Cost in NYC?

New York City Genius® RF Microneedling costs will vary by patient, depending on your individual needs and goals and the treatment areas. During your consultation, Dr. Glodny will determine the scope of your Genius® Radiofrequency Microneedling procedure and estimate your cost.

Additionally, Dr. Glodny and other professionals at Park Ave Derm help you to achieve your very best results by combining treatments such as Genius® RF Microneedling along with other skin tightening or resurfacing laser procedures. These procedures may be performed on the same day as your Genius® RF Microneedling procedure or on a different date.
