All You Need to Know About Genius Face Lift Singaporeby Jason C. professional doctor
people talk about non-surgical skin lifting treatments, treatments such as thread
lift Singapore and Ultherapy Singapore often come to mind. These widely popular treatments work by lifting and
tightening sagging skin naturally through collagen stimulation.
Although microneedling is generally safe
and effective procedure to rejuvenate and tighten ageing skin, it is often not
the first-line treatment for sagging skin because of its downtime and
discomfort during the procedure.
The recent introduction of Genius radiofrequency microneedling treatment may change the approach aesthetic doctors treat skin laxity going forward.
What is Genius?
Genius Skin Lifting Treatment combines both radiofrequency and microneedling to treat deep
layers of the skin. It delivers high-intensity focused radiofrequency energy in
a controlled fractional pattern through an array of 49 ultrafine needles made
of titanium. The 34G ultrafine needles are adjustable, allowing the doctor to
adjust the depth between 0.3mm and 3.5mm, inducing focal radiofrequency injury
to kick start collagen production.
If you think the treatment is vaguely familiar, that is because Genius is an improved, upgraded version of the INFINI. Based on the huge success in treating various skin issues such as acne scars and skin laxity, the engineers in Lutronic modified and fine-tuned some functions of the INFINI.
Current issues with INFINI
One of the biggest issues with the INFINI
is that the doctor pre-sets the energy level, needle depth and pulse duration
before starting the treatment. There is one big problem: The doctor is unable
to tell if the shot delivered into the skin is effective or not.
In particular, what doctors are interested to know is the impedance of the skin. Impedance refers to the response of the skin to an applied electrical current. The skin impedance is different at various areas of the face. This means that using the same energy level, needle depth and pulse duration for the entire treatment of the face will either render the treatment ineffective on some parts of the face and induce too much damage to other parts. In other words, doctors performing INFINI treatments are doing it blindly, solely relying on their past experience to treat patients.
Genius vs INFINI: What Are the Differences?
The most significant improvement of Genius
over INFINI is the intelligent technology to analyse the skin before it
delivers each shot, allowing for real-time feedback and adjustment of energy
and pulse duration during the procedure. This means that the energy from each
shot is delivered precisely into the skin for the most effective outcome.
In addition, the needles have been
redesigned for a more comfortable, accurate treatment with significantly less
downtime. Lutronic improved the taper, grind angles, and coating of the insulated
ultrafine needles for a smoother and cleaner insertion into the skin.
The improvements of the needles mean that
they are easier to insert into the skin with less resistance, giving rise to
less injury to the superficial layer of the skin. This also translates to
reduced downtime, bruising and bleeding.
With these improvements, the Genius is
undoubtedly the best-in-class RF microneedling device.
How does Genius lift and tighten saggy skin?
Genius harnesses radiofrequency energy to
produce controlled volumetric tissue coagulation. It works by stimulating the
skin’s own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels to improve texture and
tone of the skin.
Over the next 3 to 4 weeks post-treatment,
the increased levels of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels will
result in the gradual tightening of the skin.
