Genius RF Skin Tightening in Portland, OR
It’s a misconception that facial blemishes like wrinkles, lines, and folds appear because surface skin stretches over time. While this is a consequence of significant weight loss, the leading cause of skin laxity is the loss of collagen, a vital skin support protein. Genius RF is a non-surgical radiofrequency treatment designed to stimulate collagen production and replenish its stores deep in the underlying tissue.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Douglas Key is proud to advance Genius RF, the next generation of radiofrequency devices. This latest skin-tightening innovation in the industry minimizes pain while offering men and women in the Portland area skin smoothness from various signs of aging and acne scarring as well.
The Importance of Collagen
Collagen’s strong protein fibers act as a support structure to your skin’s surface. As your body ages, its ability to regenerate collagen diminishes year after year. Environmental factors like pollution and sun exposure also help deplete collagen further. This collagen loss leads to the emergence of skin laxity, which leads to the facial imperfections mentioned above.
Genius RF enhances skin texture from the inside out. Its radiofrequency energy heats collagen-rich tissue without affecting the surface skin. Its advanced technology allows us to control radiofrequency to promote skin tissue contraction and collagen regeneration. Your skin will see a visible improvement in a matter of a few months.
The Genius RF Technology
Genius RF employs two collagen-producing technologies to tighten skin: radiofrequency energy and microneedling.
Microneedling is a collagen-inducing treatment that involves several tiny needles causing micro-wounds to enter the skin. With each point of entry, there is a small channel that your body will determine needs healing. This natural response prompts the body to renew collagen production to repair the skin. Adjacent skin tissue to each channel will also improve in texture.
Once Genius RF needles penetrate the skin, they deliver energy into the underlying skin tissues. This process will coalesce existing collagen to produce a smoother, more uniform skin presence on the surface. It will also promote an increase in collagen production to further tighten your skin.
Although collagen will break down over time, additional treatments can be scheduled to maintain smooth and youthful skin.

Genius RF FAQs
The treatment starts with us applying a topical cream to the target area to minimize discomfort. Once this area is numb, an applicator delivering specialized microneedles is passed across the treatment site, creating 3mm entry points into the skin. This same applicator provides a boost of radiofrequency energy into the skin as it enters. A serum can be applied to the treatment site after the procedure to calm and soothe the skin.
While treatment duration varies from patient to patient, most Genius RF sessions last approximately a half hour.
Once your session is over, we will provide you with post-care instructions to get the most out of your Genius RF benefits. These instructions include what skincare products to use and what to avoid. In most cases, we ask our patients to restrict themselves to a basic moisturizer, sheer sunscreen, and unscented products. If you are prone to adverse reactions to new products, we suggest spot testing before your treatment. We will also ask you to refrain from using makeup for a few days.
Although many patients have seen good results with Microneedling, this treatment does not employ the fantastic enhancements that radiofrequency technology does. The results are more dramatic with Genius RF, which produces a higher level of skin tightening.
Quite the contrary- the treatment is highly tolerable. Compared to other Microneedling treatments, Genius RF is more comfortable, cost-effective, and less time-consuming.
Yes. Genius RF can be combined with several other aesthetic treatments to rejuvenate the skin. The micro-wound channels created are great delivery areas for topical creams and serums. Also, options like dermal fillers, Botox, and laser treatments can help enhance results.
Another benefit of Genius RF is that it can be applied anywhere on the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, thighs, knees, and abdomen.
