Recovery and results
Following your Genius radiofrequency microneedling treatment, your skin will feel tight and look red for the rest of the day. You won’t be able to “hide” this, and it will become even redder throughout the evening, so it’s wise to plan around your treatment. You may feel as though you have a sunburn.
By the next morning, much of the redness and heat will have subsided. By mid-day two or day three, your skin should have returned to its regular color — although it will still feel tight and rough. It will look great, but feel slightly scaly. This is because your skin is going through the collagen induction phase. The skin may also become itchy during this time. We recommend only using moisturizer for the first few days after treatment.
You will begin getting compliments on your new, glowing skin after about five days. However, your skin will continue to build collagen for several weeks after treatment, so you will also see improvement continue to progess over the next 4 to 6 months.
