Saggy facial skin is one of the aging signs that makes us look old and tired, and one of the
most frequent treatment requests.
Non-surgical techniques are gaining popularity as people often prefer to avoid the risks and downtime associated with surgical interventions. In some cases, surgery will remain the best solution but in many cases, surgery can be avoided or postponed, using effective technologies to tighten and lift the skin.
We use the Genius, which is a ‘cutting edge’ technology, newest generation microneedling radiofrequency device, to lift the skin of the face and neck without surgery. It is a precision device using very thin needles to precisely deliver energy (heat) in the selected dermal layer, to effectively stimulate collagen synthesis and densify the dermis again.
As Rome wasn’t built in a day, the rebuilding of skin density also takes time to be substantial enough to tighten and lift. The results are seen after a few weeks and continue to improve in the following months. To get even better results or in severe cases we recommend to have 2-3 sessions with 4-6 weeks interval.
The treatment is minimally invasive and needs pain management with numbing cream or topical anaesthetic injections. After the treatment the skin is red and swollen but the downtime is minimal and usually limited to 2 days (a weekend).
The advantages of using Genius microneedling radiofrequency treatments is that it will not only lift but also improve the thickness of the dermis and therefore the quality of the skin.
We recommend not waiting until the sagginess is severe as this requires more sessions and in certain cases, we need to combine Genius treatments with the Liquid face lift procedure, to achieve a more pronounced non-surgical lifting and facial rejuvenation.
