Genius® RF for Skin Tightening

Radiofrequency Energy for Addressing Lax Skin in the Denver Area

It is a common misconception that sagging, drooping, lines, wrinkles, and folds are the result of skin stretching out over time. While this can be a problem in cases of sudden weight loss, the primary cause of skin laxity is loss of collagen. Genius RF for skin tightening at the Denver area’s AboutSkin Dermatology is designed to address this specific problem by stimulating collagen production to replenish diminishing stores of collagen in deep skin layers.

Dr. Joel Cohen has served on the scientific advisory board for Lutronic, maker of the next-generation radiofrequency device Genius RF. This latest skin-tightening innovation in the industry minimizes pain and serves as an efficient and effective treatment regimen for women and men with certain types of laxity, as well as acne scars.

Why Is Collagen Important?

As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, a strong protein fiber that supports surface skin. Environmental factors like sun exposure and pollution further deplete collagen.

Collagen loss leads to the development of laxity, folds, and other visible signs of aging.

As an innovative skin tightening technology, Genius RF improves skin from the inside out by using radiofrequency energy to heat collagen-rich tissue without harming the surface layer of the skin. Genius RF’s carefully controlled, minimally invasive approach promotes the contraction of tissue and the production of new collagen fibers. Over the course of a few months, skin visibly lifts and tightens in treated areas.

How Does Genius RF Skin Tightening Work?

Genius RF makes use of two collagen-inducing techniques for skin tightening: microneedling and radiofrequency energy.

Microneedling involves numerous tiny needles entering the skin, with each point creating a small channel that the body “reads” as a wound. This prompts a healing response, which includes renewed collagen production to repair the skin. The process also improves the texture of the skin surrounding each small channel.

When in the skin, Genius RF’s tiny needles deliver radiofrequency energy into the tissue. This coagulates the existing collagen for a smoother, more uniform look on the surface. It also encourages collagen production for skin tightening.

The collagen production process takes place over weeks and months, creating results that are gradually visible.

This new collagen will break down over time. Ongoing skin-tightening treatments can be used to maintain a smoother, more youthful look.

With Genius RF, there is minimal downtime and it is safe for most skin types.

What Else is Genius RF Used For?

Genius RF is also used to improve certain types of acne scars on the face.

Are There Other Skin-Tightening Options?

Dr. Cohen and the AboutSkin physicians and providers recognize each patient as a unique individual with a special combination of skin types, lifestyles, and rejuvenation goals. At AboutSkin, there is no “one size fits all” program for skin tightening. The AboutSkin physicians design customized rejuvenation protocols including treatments like Genius RF, as well as ultrasound-based Ultherapy®.

These are combined with other cosmetic dermatology options, including a comprehensive topical skin care regimen, chemical peels, medical microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing, neuromodulators (BOTOX®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau), and dermal fillers to address all signs of aging skin without a single incision or suture, and with little or no downtime.

Each customized plan begins with a consultation at AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery.

What our patients say about us


Dr. Cohen is 'a derm's derm' -- his published research and opinions are sought after by other dermatologists obsessed with the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, neuromodulators, and fillers. He's also trained many of these derms. Dr. Cohen is arguably one of the best in the U.S., though he's not flashy or self promoting --just intensely focused on achieving elegant, successful results. I stumbled into his practice quite by accident, and could not be happier. His PA Christina is also phenomenal.


I am so pleased with the high level of expertise and care I have received from Dr. Cohen, Dr. Ho and his medical assistants Cristina and Emily. From the Mohs surgery, to a multitude of lasers, to skin checks; the doctors  have been extremely conscientious and strive to have a relationship with their patients.  I am thrilled with the results of my cosmetic procedures and surgery.  In addition, They are kind and very humble providers. It truly is an honor to be a patient of Dr. Cohen and to be a valued patient of his medical practice. Truly the best in the country.. and The World. Thank you Dr. Cohen and Dr. Ho and staff!

I have been a patient of About Skin Dermatology for over 12 years. Everyone that I have ever encountered at this practice has been knowledgeable and very kind. I see both Dr. Ho and Dr. Cohen. My skin has not looked this good in years. My whole family goes to this practice. I would highly recommend About Skin Dermatology.


Dr Fettig was great- took her time with me and answered my questions. She has a nice bedside manner and good sense of humor.

I used Dr. Cohen for a Mohs procedure. He is fellowship trained and extremely competent. Dr. Cohen remained involved in my follow up care with a plastic surgeon and was always readily accessible and available to address my concerns. Both he and the office staff are caring and committed to providing the highest level of professional service. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. I think it’s very nice.
