Genius RF Microneedling vs. Morpheus8. Which is better? We naturally lose collagen as we age, causing our skin to wrinkle and sag. When it comes to skin tightening, Genius RF Microneedling is the way to go. Here’s what you should know.
What is Genius RF Microneedling?
Genius combines radiofrequency with microneedling. This allows the device to target various depths of your skin. In doing so, it triggers the production of collagen and elastin. Furthermore, both aspects of the Genius RF Microneedling treatment trigger the body’s natural healing process. The micropunctures from the needles and the heat from the radiofrequency combine to trigger the body’s natural response to injury. This promotes the production of new collagen and elastin.
What Genius RF Microneedling Does
So, what can this device do? There are many benefits of Genius, including:
- Builds collagen and elastin
- Improves the appearance of acne scars
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks
- Tightens skin
- Reduces wrinkles
- Improves acne by reducing pore size and oil production
How It Works
Depending on the treatment area, there are four different tips to choose from. For the face, the tip contains 49 very fine needles which are programmed to target specific depths. Deeper depths achieve facial contouring and fat reduction, such as in under eye bags or jowls. Simultaneously emitting radiofrequency at more superficial depths causes skin tightening. This has a greater impact on reducing wrinkles.
The goal of Genius is to target multiple depths to create the patient’s desired results. Furthermore, Genius is safe for all skin types since it avoids injuring the top layer of skin where the melanocytes reside.
Genius RF Microneedling vs. Morpheus8
Genius is different from other RF microneedling devices on the market. It sets itself apart by the superior effectiveness of the treatments, all without the associated downtime.
Because Genius contains 49 needles per tip (compared to Morpheus8 only having 24) more energy is emitted, which produces a higher level of skin tightening.
Additionally, Genius needles are fine and more flexible than Morpheus8, causing less epidermal injury, less risk of bruising, bleeding or scratches often seen with Morpheus8 treatments.
