For years, professional microneedling facials have become more and more popular as the go-to source for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation. This is in part due to its effective, visible results, and the minimal downtime associated with it. From wrinkles to stretch marks, to acne, to surgery scars, microneedling has proven effective for helping our Baton Rouge and New Orleans area patients reduce virtually all visual effects of aging, as well as improving the texture, smoothness, and firmness of the skin.

Like all technology, the tools used for collagen induction therapy also continue to improve and with that comes added benefits for patients. At Weiler Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer Genius™ high-intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) microneedling: a more efficient microneedling device that utilizes RF technology for the fastest and most thorough microneedling experience yet.
How It Works
Your skin is able to heal and maintain a youthful look due to collagen when you are young. As you age, your body reduces how much collagen it produces, leading to more wrinkles and easier scarring. Stimulating collagen production can help to reduce wrinkles, scars, and acne. This microneedling technique is unique in that the radiofrequency used with the microneedling process encourages your body to make more collagen, helping to visibly improve your skin.
The Genius device is making a huge leap of progress in the field of scar revision. This device’s technology is superior because it targets the problem deep within the skin’s layers with radiofrequency, as opposed to a laser, which significantly reduces skin pigmentation complications. Additionally, radio frequency promotes much more collagen stimulation than what’s achieved with microneedling alone.
This procedure is ideal for individuals who are looking to maintain results from previous facelifts, as well as individuals who have struggled with acne scarring. Microneedling has a wide range of individuals it is able to help.
Here at Weiler Plastic Surgery, we work to stay on the cutting edge of cosmetic procedures and Genius RF microneedling is no exception. With extensive testing, Genius gives providers much more control than ever before without damaging the outer layers of your skin like lasers can. This process is easy, involves little to no discomfort, and has minimal downtime with superior results. Request your consultation with Weiler Plastic Surgery to see if Genius RF microneedling is the right procedure for your needs, and embrace this state-of-the-art cosmetic technology today!

Our Talented Team of Plastic Surgeons
Our plastic surgeons bring years of experience and dedication to personalized care to the men and women of Louisiana. Founder Dr. Jonathan Weiler is known for his advanced surgical expertise, extensive knowledge, and warm demeanor. Dr. M'liss Hogan's wealth of skill and experience complement her unique understanding of her patients' needs, and Dr. Pamela Brownlee specializes in both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Together, they share a vision of enriching and improving their patients' lives.
With Genius RF microneedling, providers now have an unprecedented level of depth and energy level customization. What this means for patients is a fully customized penetration depth and RF energy level for each individual patient, maximizing the effectiveness on all patients, especially those with varying skin thicknesses, sun damaged skin, or different levels of pitting/scarring. This also allows for a “multi-layer” approach, affecting all layers of the skin with surgical precision.
Extensive medical testing and studies have been done that prove the effectiveness and discrete nature of treatment with Genius. The RF microneedling process of Genius makes it a frontrunner in the industry, due to its ability to create new collagen and elastin in the lower layers of the skin, while leaving the superficial epidermis intact.
The Genius handpiece’s insulated needles are designed to penetrate into the skin, easily enabling our physicians to essentially bypass the epidermis, or the visual layer of the skin, and release RF energy directly into the dermis layer. This makes it possible to reverse wrinkles and scarring with as little impact to the outer layer of skin as possible. This not only maximizes the effectiveness of treatments, it results in little to no discomfort during the procedure.
Because there is minimal impact to the surface of the skin, practically no recovery time is needed. Patients can return to normal activities right away; however, the skin may look flushed for the first few hours. Makeup may be worn on treated skin after 24 hours.
Are You a Good Candidate for Genius RF Microneedling?
Uneven Texture and/or Enlarged Pores
Deep Acne Scars Including: Box Car Scars, Ice Pick Scars & Rolling Scars
Aging or Sagging Skin
Looking To Tone and Tighten Skin Without Surgery
Deep Set Wrinkles That Show Little Improvement With Laser, Injectables and/or Skincare
Patients That Have Had a Facelift and/or Neck Lift That Want To Maintain Their Results
Non-RF Microneedling Options
For more noticeable results and a few extra days of recovery, consider ellacor® micro-coring. In addition to creating tiny injuries in the skin to boost collagen production, its hollow needles remove tiny columns of skin for remodeling within.
If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative to Genius RF microneedling, SkinPen® or Plasma Pen treatments might be right for you. These options, which can be combined with the application of topical serums, provide similar benefits to RF microneedling; although, skin tightening is typically more significant with the RF treatment.
The SkinPen is an FDA-cleared microneedling device that offers exceptional precision to treat even the most delicate areas, such as the skin around the eyes and lips. The device’s tiny needles create hundreds of microchannels per second to stimulate new collagen production and reduce acne scars, fine lines, and more. Like Genius, it is safe for all skin types and requires minimal downtime.
AquaGold® Fine Touch™ Microneedling Alternative
If you are considering microneedling, you may also be a strong candidate for AquaGold, an innovative treatment that infuses your skin with a medical-grade cocktail of anti-aging products while also stimulating natural collagen production. The treatment uses hair-thin, 24K gold-plated needles to deliver a custom blend of antioxidants, vitamins, dermal fillers, and micro-doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic just below the surface of your skin. There is no downtime required, and you’ll likely see improvements within a week or 2.
While AquaGold won’t replace your usual BOTOX or filler treatments, it can reduce fine lines, create more even skin coloration, and minimize acne scars and large pores for 3 to 4 months at a time. Ask about AquaGold at your next microneedling treatment.
