Genius RF Microneedling is one of the most advanced, highly effective microneedling treatments available today. Microneedling is ideal for non-surgical and non-ablative treatment of various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretch marks), scarring (acne, other), and hyperpigmentation. Results are achieved through stimulating collagen and elastin production. Resultant microchannels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy.
What is Genius RF Microneedling?
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin that triggers the body’s wound-healing response. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Our microneedling in Worcester is a safe, chemical-free treatment to trigger new collagen. When combined with radiofrequency (RF), it becomes the newest revolution in contouring and tightening for the face, neck, and body. Genius RF Microneedling allows precise depth control, as it includes a superior handpiece and needle design. With this cutting-edge treatment, patients enjoy more dramatic results, fewer side effects, and a short, simple recovery period.

Microneedling With PRP
Dr. Poulos recommends combining microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which can enhance your results. PRP is a powerful regenerative substance that is taken from your own blood that is packed with growth factors to help heal, renew and revitalize the skin. PRP regenerates the skin tissues and triggers collagen production at a more significant level.
Used with microneedling, PRP helps achieve healthier, firmer, more youthful, luminous skin.
Greater Results With Skin Serums
Clinical studies have shown that serum absorption is dramatically increased when applied with microneedling. The treatment leaves the entire epidermal barrier fully intact; micro-channels that are created will seal within hours of application. New collagen structures will form within the lower layers of the skin. Skin is left resilient and available for additional treatments. Since the skin can recuperate faster after a microneedling treatment, often hours after treatment, the patient may see noticeable results sooner.

Recovery and Aftercare
The downtime for microneedling is brief and manageable. Your skin may be slightly red, resembling a sunburn, but this will improve within a few days as you begin to heal. Take care to avoid direct sunlight, as the damaging rays of the sun can threaten your results. Do not exfoliate, use alcohol-based toners, or do any activities that include extensive sweating, such as vigorous exercise, sauna time, and/or hot tubs.
