What Is Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses fine needles to create superficial wounds in the skin. These wounds stimulate a natural healing response, including the production of collagen and elastin.
The Lutronic Genius® device consists of sharp titanium needles that are gold plated. This material allows the needles to penetrate the skin very cleanly and without disruption to the skin, minimizing patient discomfort.
Once the needles penetrate to the precise depth, radiofrequency energy is emitted. Lutronic Genius® is one of the most advanced microneedling devices available as it offers real-time monitoring and feedback. This means that the device can sense and adjust the RF energy levels depending on the quality of the skin in real-time. This technology can determine whether the skin is more youthful or damaged, and the levels of RF energy adapt accordingly.

How Is Microneedling With the Lutronic Genius® RF Device Performed?
Microneedling with the Lutronic Genius® RF device is non-surgical and non-invasive. While this advanced treatment is considered to be very comfortable, a topical anesthetic is provided beforehand to reduce any associated discomfort.
Most microneedling treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete; however, this may vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
During your Lutronic Genius® RF microneedling treatment, the gold-plated needles of the device will penetrate your skin, and the appropriate level of radiofrequency energy will be emitted. This will help to stimulate collagen, elastin, and cellular turnover for more radiant-looking skin.
Most patients undergo a series of three microneedling treatments spaced one month apart.

How Long Is My RF Microneedling Recovery?
Most patients fully recover from their RF microneedling treatment within a few days.
It is common to experience tightness and redness in the treated area initially after your microneedling session, which will likely worsen over the first few hours. Most patients start to see this redness subside within one to two days.
Many patients also report a feeling of warmth or tightness that is similar to a sunburn. This should also start to dissipate within one to two days.
When Will I See My Lutronic Genius® RF Results?
Because of this, results are often noticeable within a few days of the treatment. These results will continue to improve over time and over repeated treatment sessions as more collagen and elastin are produced.
Unlike many laser treatments, Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling does not make your skin more sensitive to the sun; however, it is important to practice good habits, such as wearing sunscreen and limiting sun exposure. This will help prolong the quality of your results.
How Long Will My Microneedling Results Last?
Because microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, results are known to be long lasting; however, no cosmetic treatment can stop the natural aging process or prevent further environmental or sun damage.
Most patients undergo frequent RF microneedling maintenance treatments to help ensure their skin remains healthy and tight.
