How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Genius and Potenza deliver radiofrequency energy through gold-plated needles, which heats the tissue and stimulates collagen and elastin production. The energy is delivered precisely for each client and each treatment, and because it is delivered into the deeper layers of the dermis, it bypasses the basal layer, greatly reducing the risk for hyperpigmentation. With built-in monitoring, the system continually assesses the quality of the skin during treatment to ensure maximum results.

What to Expect During Your RF Microneedling Treatment
Upon arrival for your first treatment, you will take photos and complete a consent for treatment form. Your skin will be prepped with a thin layer of numbing cream, which will be applied and left on for 30 to 60 minutes. Your med spa provider will customize settings on the device to treat your specific skin conditions. Treatments may take 60 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on the size and area being treated.
Is RF Microneedling Painful?
The treatment is tolerable, though some heat and pressure will be felt. Your provider will work with you to ensure maximum comfort. After your treatment is completed, soothing lotion will be applied to the skin. Your skin will look like it has a mild sunburn.
What Is Recovery Like After RF Microneedling?
Immediately following treatment, you can expect redness or swelling, which will usually diminish after 24 to 36 hours, but can take up to a week to completely resolve. Most clients are able to return to their normal activities within 48 hours. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. It is important to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments; wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Once the skin is completely healed, be sure to wear SPF 15 or higher every day for long-term protection.
What Kinds of Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
You can expect to see changes within a day or 2 after the procedure, however, it takes time for the body to produce collagen, which it will continue to build for several weeks. Results appear gradually over time, with improvement shown over 6 months following the procedure. Results are long-lasting as your own body is at work, and can be maintained for years with proper maintenance and the right skincare regimen.
How Many RF Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?
A minimum of 3 treatments may be required for optimal results. The length and number of treatments needed will be determined by your provider according to your specific needs.
