Look at what Genius will do for you:
Lifts and Tightens the skin of your face and neck better than older treatments / Reduces wrinkles / Makes large pores smaller / Eases the appearance of scarring from acne, chicken pox and lacerations
Add on PRP
You now have the choice to add Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to your SkinPen treatment for even better results! We use the FDA approved ProGen PRP system for safety and to deliver you the best possible PRP result possible!
Add on DermaPlaning the same day
Dermaplaning uses a surgical blade to carefully remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, old skin care and makeup lodged in the keratin layer and remove unwanted facial hairs. This is a great service on it’s own, but works great as another add on to Genius RF micro-needling. Notify us if you want to add DermaPlaning, PRP or both to your Genius visit. Dermaplaning as an add on is an additional $75.
Micro-injections of PRP
At the end of your PRP SkinPen micro-needling visit, if there is any PRP remaining, your provider may offer to make micro-injections of PRP directly into areas for maximal results. Areas that are injected can include the under eye area, crow’s feet, eyebrow, upper lip lines, cheek wrinkles and folds and necklace wrinkle lines. This service is included in your PRP add on charge of $250!
How does Genius deliver these amazing results?
Genius combines the proven benefits of micro-needling and radio-frequency into one treatment.
Each needle is gold plated and smaller than regular micro-needling needles, and are insulated to protect the outer epidermis. By protecting the outer skin layer, you experience remarkably short recovery times – only two days of redness. The machine custom delivers pulses to the correct depth of the skin, and when the cartridge is at the right depth Genius’s intelligent computer delivers a pulse of radio-frequency energy. During a face treatment using Genius you will receive approximately 800 pulses of micro-needling with RF energy delivery.
The radio-frequency energy works by heating of the dermal layer of skin, and this in turn leads to collagen and elastin production over the next 3 months. The skin tightening benefits last 1-2 years. We recommend three treatments spaced one month apart, followed by a single maintenance treatment every 6 months.
What is ProGen PRP and how does it work?
The “Vampire Facial” is one name applied to PRP with micro-needling. By adding PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) you will see even greater improvements in skin tone, elasticity and lessening of wrinkles. PRP uses your own platelets to boost the rejuvenating results. PRP is optional, but highly recommended. We use ProGen PRP system, one of the few FDA approved PRP treatment methods. By selecting ProGen you are choosing what we believe to be the best, most reliable PRP system on the market today. Not all PRP are alike, and many med spas do a “home brew” version to save money. But the ProGen results speak for themselves! We draw your blood and prepare your PRP sample using a special centrifuge. Droplets of PRP are then applied to the treatment area prior to pulsing the skin with Genius. If you have PRP left over we will massage it into the skin or offer to do micro-injections around the eyes, lips or on the neck.
Is Genius painful?
Trust us when we say the micro-needling part of this treatment is not painful. But the benefits of over 50,000 micro-needle punctures in one treatment are huge! The radio-frequency (RF) energy creates heat, and the heating is uncomfortable. We manage that discomfort using a very strong topical numbing cream before your treatment is begun. We also cool the skin using a Zimmer Chiller – a simple but very effective device that blows cold air over the skin during treatment. Our patients rate the pain per pulse at a 3-6 out of ten. The discomfort is only during the brief microsecond of each pulse when the skin is heated. Between pulses there is no pain, and at the end of the treatment the pain is gone. The results of Genius make it all worthwhile. Some patients take Tylenol 1,000 mg (two extra strength) when they leave home, and this also helps lessen the discomfort.
What about recovery time?
You would think a treatment that delivers this much benefit would have to come with a long recovery period, but with Genius that is not the case! You will be red the day of treatment, but by the next day the redness is improving, and by 48 hours almost all of the redness is gone.
No bruising at all! No skin peeling at all! Most of our patients feel comfortable to return to work the next day. If you want 2 days off at home then we suggest you book your visit on a Thursday afternoon, Friday or Saturday morning.
When will I see results?
You will see improvement in your skin color, pores and scars within a week. The skin tightening benefits build continuously over the next 3 months.
What is the Home Care?
At Omaha Med Spa your provider will apply a special serum right away. We call it Peptide Booster and it soothes by drawing moisture into the skin. Peptide Booster also has all of the proteins needed to help stimulate collagen production. You will need to apply this product as often as hourly for the first day, and then at least twice a day for the next month.
After 3-7 days add our “Vitamin C&E Serum” which delivers the correct Vitamin C to the skin, also needed in the production of collagen.
Start using a sunscreen the following day. We recommend a SPF rating of 40 – 50. Reduce sun exposure for the next week.
After one week start “Retinol Silk 100” at bedtime. For the next 3 weeks you will apply both serums in the am,. and pm and use the Retinol at night.
Peptide Booster, Vitamin C&E serum and Retinol Silk are our branded products, and they are very important for the success of your treatments. Together all 3 products sell for $270, but on the day of your treatment you may buy them for $250.
I’m ready to book my Genius. What else do I need to know?
For optimal results, arrive well hydrated on the day of treatment. If possible arrive with no makeup and without face or neck jewelry. Otherwise, your skin makeup and jewelry may be removed at the med spa prior to treatments. Wear a comfortable T shirt that exposes the full neck area. If you are coming from work, we have gowns that you may change into. Before scheduling your appointment, decide if you are adding face, neck or both face and neck. Let us know if you want to add PRP to your treatment as we will allow more time to collect and process your blood sample.
You will also have the option to Add on a LaseMD treatment of the face, neck or both face and neck the same day. This additional treatment will give your skin a glow and actually shortens your recovery time! The add on cost is less than a separate visit for LaseMD.
