Lutronic Genius™ RF MicroNeedling What is it?

Radiofrequency (RF) MicroNeedling is a more advanced form of MicroNeedling that uses RF waves to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin in order to heal common skin conditions. RF MicroNeedling uses specially insulated needles that deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue; once the needles have broken through the skin. This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps to stimulate new collagen fibers to grow, leading to significant improvement to skin quality and texture.

How many sessioins are required?

On average, patients who choose RF microneedling often require fewer sessions to achieve their results than patients who opt for traditional microneedling. Because radiofrequency microneedling penetrates deeper into the skin and uses heat for effective skin-tightening, it can provide better results with fewer sessions.

What does RF microneedling treat?

RF microneedling is better for addressing greater cosmetic concerns than traditional microneedling. It can effectively treat acne scars, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks; the Genius™ device can also safely be used on almost any area of the body.

How much downtime is needed?

Because traditional microneedling is more abrasive to the top layer of the skin, it causes much more superficial trauma. This means that patients can have red and sandpaper-like textured skin after the treatment. RF microneedling, on the other hand, has no downtime and is not harmful to the skin.

Is the procedure a one size fits all approach?

Your skin concerns are unique to you, so your treatment should be too. Unlike traditional microneedling, RF microneedling is completely customizable in terms of how deep the Genius™ device penetrates into the skin. This means that it is able to provide greater results with more precision, while addressing all your specific cosmetic concerns.

How good is it at stimulating collagen growth?

Overall, when evaluating RF microneedling vs. microneedling, most cosmetic physicians prefer RF microneedling because it is more effective at stimulating collagen production. While traditional microneedling only damages the surface layer of the skin to activate healing, RF microneedling utilizes radiofrequency waves and heat to boost your collagen levels without harming your skin.

Does RF microneedling hurt?

Prior to radiofrequency microneedling, the doctor will numb your skin to reduce any potential discomfort or pain associated with the procedure. Because the needle perforations made in the skin are so tiny, there should not be lasting damage or discomfort. However, you may have some redness and swelling, and you will need to avoid certain skincare products for the next week after treatment.

Why is this treatment ideal for anti-aging?

This is an ideal treatment for acing because it treats both the visible signs of aging and the root cause of age-related skin concerns. A majority of age-related skin concerns are caused by a natural decline in collagen production associated with aging. When collagen production can increase as a result of this treatment, the visible signs of aging can be reversed.

Is this treatment safe for all skin types and skin tones?

Yes, this treatment is ideally suited for all skin types and skin tones. It’s sometimes the case that energy-based treatments are incompatible with medium-to-dark skin tones due to an elevated risk of pigmentation. However, because radiofrequency primarily uses thermal energy, there is no heightened risk of adverse pigmentation reactions, even for very dark skin.

Likewise, some aesthetic techniques for exfoliation can be incompatible with certain skin types, such as oily or sensitive skin. Microneedling, however, does not pose a risk to delicate or combination skin types. In fact, microneedling is universally compatible with all skin types, including acne-prone skin that produces too much oil. This is because microneedling by itself can help level out sebum production in the skin’s pores.

Who are ideal candidates for RF microneedling?

This treatment is ideal for patients of all genders, ages, skin types, and skin tones. From anti-aging concerns to restoring skin health to control acne breakouts to reducing the amount of visible scarring, RF microneedling is the optimal choice for your aesthetic goals.

What is the difference between at home microneedling?

For safety reasons because these devices aren’t supervised, at-home microneedling tools tend to penetrate only the very surface of the skin. Because of this, while they may have temporary brightening effects by helping to exfoliate dead skin cells, they typically do little in actually stimulating collagen synthesis and promoting longer-lasting firming or smoothing effects. In addition, at-home devices may or may not have disposable tips or a mechanism for sterilization. If needles aren’t clean, bacteria or other microbes could be transferred into the skin risking infection. In contrast, in-office devices have sterilized disposable tips and have multiple depths of penetration. This allows needles to reach into collagen, elastin, and superficial blood vessels promoting tissue remodeling, which can tighten skin, improve texture and minimize acne and other scars.
