The science behind one of the world’s most sought-after treatments, explained.
When we say that Belo Skin Genius is unlike any treatment you’ve tried before, we mean it. From the bottom of our heart. But while we can wax poetic about its amazing skin-tightening and skin texture-improving effects all month long, you might still need more information about how it really works. After all, a treatment named “Skin Genius” ought to have some scientific explanation as to why it’s so effective. Before you splurge, here’s what you need to know.
How does the microneedling in Belo Skin Genius work?
You’re familiar with microneedling—a procedure wherein microneedles are used to puncture the top layer of the skin, causing the skin to jumpstart the healing process and boost collagen production. It’s so commonplace, you can even buy dermarollers at the drugstore for at-home use.
But traditional microneedling doesn’t harness the power of RF energy like Skin Genius does. This unique approach is referred to as Radiofrequency Microneedling (RFM). Skin Genius’ uniquely designed handpiece contains 49 microscopic needles that go into the skin. These microneedles then conduct RF energy into precisely determined skin depths. After all, the depth appropriate to one’s forehead is unlikely to be the depth appropriate to one’s jawline, where more fat tends to be located. Watch this video to get a more in-depth look.
What makes the delivery of RF energy different in Belo Skin Genius?
There are a bevy of RF treatments available everywhere—in our very own clinic, we have Thermage FLX, Ulthera Prime, Skin Reboot, and more. Why Skin Genius, then? Well, radiofrequency microneedling results in the formation of controlled injuries, or to put it more scientifically, coagulation zones. The body then tries to repair these zones by producing new collagen and elastin, resulting in rejuvenated skin.
With first-generation RF devices, the delivered energy tends to decrease with increased resistance from the skin. However, with Genius, the delivered energy stays consistent, no matter the resistance. This is achieved through “Real-Time Impedence Monitoring,” which ensures that the desired energy per area is consistently delivered…resulting in a much more effective treatment.
What’s in it for me?
All science aside, what do all these technological advancements mean for you, our patients? Because of these innovations, we are capable of giving you a safer, more comfortable (less painful) experience with manageable downtime. Some swelling and redness can be expected after the treatment, but should subside in a few hours. You can go on with your regular activities after the procedure.
