Why Choose Genius RF Microneedling? Discover Its Unmatched Benefits and Value

Genius® RF Microneedling vs. Traditional Microneedling: What’s The Difference?

During a microneedling treatment, tiny needles gently penetrate your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process. This increases collagen and elastin production, creating tighter and more youthful skin.

Genius® RF microneedling is like a magic wand for your skin, offering dramatic results with minimal side effects and downtime. This device kicks microneedling up a notch with radiofrequency waves. By precisely delivering heat to the skin, radiofrequency energy combined with the fine needles of microneedling supercharge collagen production, giving you even faster and more effective results. 

RealSelf says RF microneedling can slow the process of skin aging, kick-starting the body’s healing response to create new collagen and elastin and help skin look and act younger.

RF microneedling tackles various skin issues, from wrinkles and skin laxity to scars and uneven texture. It is customizable to your needs, and the complete procedure is quick, usually lasting between 10 and 20 minutes per treatment area.

In the past, radiofrequency devices had fixed settings that needed manual tweaking. With the next level of RF microneedling technology, Genius can monitor and adjust the energy in real time based on your skin. That means no more guesswork—just the perfect treatment tailored for you.

With thousands of clinical studies backing it up, this system knows exactly what your skin needs, regardless of age or skin type. It also treats the areas with enhanced precision while keeping you comfortable with numbing cream.

RF microneedling is the only system that measures the energy being delivered, so you can trust you’re getting the most out of your treatment every single time.

Who is a Good Candidate for Genius® RF Microneedling?

The advantage of Genius RF microneedling is that it’s safe for several different skin types, including darker ones. It’s an excellent solution for burn, trauma or acne scars. A National Library of Medicine study found it is a safe treatment for aesthetic and dermatologic concerns in all skin types. Unlike some laser treatments that can cause issues with darker skin tones, it is less likely to affect your pigment.

If you’re after quick results and minimal downtime, Genius RF may be perfect for you. At HerSpace, we typically recommend this treatment to patients who:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Noticed those early signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Want to tighten up loose, lax skin
  • Have sun-damaged skin causing pigmentation issues such as dark spots
  • Have scars from acne or injury 
  • Have stretch marks
  • Have realistic expectations

RF microneedling might not be the best treatment if you:

  • Are on Accutane
  • Have open wounds
  • Have active infections
  • Currently, have a bad cold sore
  • You’ve had radiation treatment or chemotherapy recently or are currently receiving treatments
  • Are prone to keloids or other concerns that come with poor wound healing
  • Have severe skin issues
  • Are going through pregnancy or breastfeeding

Genius RF Microneedling vs. Morpheus8: What’s the Difference?

Compared to other popular RF microneedling treatments, such as Morpheus8, what makes Genius RF microneedling more powerful? First off, it’s all about effectiveness without the downtime or pain. Unlike Morpheus8 and other competing devices, Genius brings the heat with 49 needles per tip, compared to just 24 needles.

Why is the number of needles so valuable? More needles means more energy, which means tighter skin. Genius RF needles are top-notch, too. These are finer and more flexible than other RF microneedling treatments, so they’re gentler on your skin. No bruising, intolerable discomfort, bleeding, or scratches here!

At HerSpace MedSpa, we’re all about inclusivity with our treatments. Unlike Morpheus8, Genius allows us to treat all skin types and tones, and we can customize each treatment to suit your needs.

To summarize, here’s a breakdown of the Genius RF microneedling vs. Morpheus8 difference:

  1. Genius has 49 needles, while others have just 24. More needles means better skin tightening and more dramatic results.
  2. There’s less pain and a lower risk of injury with Genius, as its needles are finer and more flexible.
  3. Genius brings nearly double the energy compared to others, making it more effective.
  4. Genius is likely to tighten and improve the overall skin appearance, with less risk of side effects because it has more energy per needle.
  5. Genius targets deeper layers, bypassing the surface to reduce the risk of pigmentation issues.

If you’re looking for serious results without the inconvenience of pain and downtime, Genius might just be your new best friend.

How Many Genius RF Treatments Will I Need?

To get the most out of Genius RF, you’ll ideally want 3-5 sessions, depending on how much repair your skin needs. If you’re dealing with some serious scarring, sagging, or general signs of aging, you might need up to five treatments to achieve a fresh-faced glow. We typically help patients achieve their goals in just three treatments.

After your initial RF microneedling treatment series, it’s all about maintenance to help keep your collagen levels in tip-top condition. You’ll want to book yearly maintenance treatments to preserve the radiance of your Genius results.

How Quickly Will I See Genius RF Results?

Collagen building is similar to planting seeds in a garden. You might notice improvements within the first month after your Genius RF microneedling treatment, but the ‘real magic’ happens over time.

Don’t expect overnight miracles—collagen production takes time to do its thing. Your body continues to build collagen for weeks afterward. Be patient and give it about three to six months after your first session to see the full effect of your treatment.
