A new non-surgical option to correct facial wrinkles has been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and will be explained at a free seminar conducted by facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Prendiville.
“Genius” is a radio frequency micro-needling device that delivers radio frequency energy to a variety of depths, regardless of skin type. It can be used for several facial rejuvenation treatments, including skin tightening, acne scarring, stretch marks, scars and improvements in skin texture, according to Dr. Prendiville.
Dr. Prendiville is the first facial plastic surgeon in Florida to offer the new Genius, which was developed by Lutronic, a global aesthetic laser medical device manufacturer.
Dr Prendiville will explain the advantages of Genius as well as other facial rejuvenation procedures at a free seminar Friday, November 1, in Fort Myers.
The seminar begins at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch at Connors Steak & Seafood at Gulfcoast Town Center, 10076 Gulf Center Drive. The seminar is free, but reservations are required by calling 239-437-3900. Space is limited.
“We’re excited to be the first in Florida to offer this new treatment.The advantage of Genius radio frequency micro-needling is that patients can get these dramatic results without laser resurfacing and virtually no downtime,” said Dr. Prendiville, who also is the medical director of the Assuage Luxury Spa in Fort Myers and North Naples. “Patients can apply makeup after just 24 hours and it is safe for all skin types.”
Using before and after pictures of actual patients, Dr. Prendiville also will discuss the latest advances in facelifts, eyelid lifts, nose surgery, lasers, and reconstructive surgery. He also will review injectable wrinkle fillers Botox®, Sculptra®, Juvederm®; Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Radiesse®, Voluma®, Vollure®, and Revanesse Versa® for deeper wrinkles and lines.
Another recent advance that Dr. Prendiville will discuss is SculpSure®, which is approved by the FDA as the world’s first non-invasive fat-melting laser device to treat stubborn fat in just 25 minutes. SculpSure is available at the Assuage Luxury Spa in Naples.
In addition to a light lunch, attendees will be able to make an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Prendiville.
