Genius Fractional RF is a smart skin tightening system FDA cleared for treatment of skin wrinkles and rhytids
It is equipped with skin quality sensing technology called impedence, which accurately measures the skin quality and helps adjust the energy needed to be delivered in order to stimulate new collagen and elastin production and allows the needles to be inserted into the skin with precision and increased comfort.
The 49 tiny microinsulated needles can be adjusted in depth from 0.3 mm to 3.5 mm deep into the skin.
What does Microinsulated RF needle mean?
Microinsulated means that the needle length is protected from damaging the surrounding skin as it’s being inserted. The only active part of the needle is the tip, which delivers energy only when reached the precisely set depth. The needles deliver exact energy as the provider sets up.
What is Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Fractional because the needles are set up in 7×7 pattern so its seven rows of 7 needles in each row with a little space in between.
Radio Frequency is the energy used to heat up the tissue to set temperature of 40-44 Celcius.
Microneedling because the needles are tiny 34G size, surgical grade and sterile
SO what is so Genius about it?
- The Genius comes from the fact that the skin depth can be adjusted and real time monitoring of the skin temperature and energy delivered is being done during the treatment. It is Genius that the needles are insulated to protect the surrounding skin and delivering too much uncontrolled energy.
