Lutronic Genius RF Microneedling


What Is RF Microneedling?

Lutronic Genius RF Microneedling

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that has gained popularity because of its effectiveness in boosting collagen. At Timeless Laser & Skin Care, we offer the latest technological advance in the world of microneedling: the Lutronic Genius RF Microneedling for skin-tightening and treatment of certain wrinkles.

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses micro-needles and radiofrequency waves for skin rejuvenation. The needles create tiny wounds, or microchannels, on your skin while releasing RF waves that cause additional disruption to the treatment area. This triggers the body's healing response, increasing collagen and elastin production.

Collagen and elastin are proteins your body naturally makes that keep your skin firm as well as hydrated, giving it a youthful appearance. Once you reach your 30s, the production of these proteins decreases, which can lead to the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging.

RF microneedling stimulates the production of these proteins, helping to rebuild skin that is healthier and less damaged.

Some of the skin conditions that RF microneedling treats include the following:

    Fine lines
    Stretch marks
    Large pores
    Sagging skin

This is a particularly effective acne scar treatment, as it encourages the growth of healthy skin to replace scarred skin.

The best candidates for RF microneedling are people who have early signs of aging, are in good health, and have realistic expectations.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are currently using or have recently used Accutane, have a skin disease like psoriasis, have a skin infection, are taking anticoagulants, or have a history of poor wound healing, microneedling is probably not the best option. Together, we can find an alternative treatment.

The Lutronic Genius

To perform the microneedling procedure, we use the Lutronic Genius device. It has a superior handpiece design with gold-plated needles that can offer consistent results by using real-time impedance monitoring. It also provides a more comfortable patient experience.

The Lutronic Genius device makes it easy for us to customize the treatment to each of our patients, targeting areas of any size and applying the level of radiofrequency waves needed to stimulate the most collagen and elastin.

  • Benefits Of RF Microneedling With The Lutronic Genius

    The Lutronic Genius lets us provide pinpoint precision. No matter how small the treatment area or its location, we can provide accurate, customized treatment.

    Because RF microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin, you can continue to see results and improvements in your skin’s condition for months after your treatments.

    RF microneedling is also a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime.
    most patients can return to work or other activities of daily living within 1-3 days.

    The Lutronic Genius is the only first- or second-generation RF microneedling device that offers real-time feedback on the pulses it delivers. That feedback allows us to adjust treatment and offer the highest quality results.

  • How Do You Prepare For RF Microneedling?

    The first step is to contact us for a consultation. During this appointment, we will answer all of the questions you may have about the procedure and perform a physical examination to ensure that microneedling is the option that can offer the best results.
    Come prepared to tell us your full medical history, including any previous experiences with microneedling and other aesthetic procedures. Bring a list of the medications and supplements you take.
    We usually request that our patients stop using blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medications and supplements. These can include the following:● Ibuprofen● Aspirin● Fish oil● Vitamin E● St. John’s wort● Ginseng
    You must avoid unprotected sun exposure, and you should not use exfoliants and abrasive products like those with salicylic acids for at least a week before radiofrequency microneedling. For men, we recommend you shave the day before treatment.

  • The RF Microneedling Procedure

    RF microneedling involves microneedles penetrating the skin and delivering heat to the deeper layers of the skin. We have numerous ways to minimize discomfort. We give all patients a prescription for a compounded topical numbing medication to be applied 1 hour before treatments to help numb the skin. We remove the numbing medication in the office prior to your treatment. In addition, we blow cold air on each area as it is being treated to counteract the heat. And finally, we offer ProNox. The vast majority of patients report that these measures provide good relief. If a patient desires additional analgesia, we also offer medications, but the patient must have someone to drive them home in that case.
    Once we begin the procedure, the session can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.

  • RF Microneedling Aftercare

    Most patients return to work or activities of daily living within a day or two after the procedure. We send you home with the products we want you to use on your recently-treated skin for 5-7 days to improve healing and assist in achieving maximal results. You should stay out of the sun for the first 3 days.

    Your skin may have a sandpaper feeling due to skin debris in the holes created by the microneedles. We recommend that you don’t wear makeup until that sandpaper feeling is gone, usually 5 days.

  • Results To Expect

    You may start seeing results just a few days after the procedure. Most results, however, will become visible after a few days or even weeks pass. You will see optimal results anywhere between three and six months after your treatment.
    During our consultation, we will come up with a treatment schedule that can allow you to get dependable results. Most people benefit from two or three sessions, but your treatment schedule will depend on the conditions you would like to resolve.
    Radiofrequency microneedling is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures we provide. With the Lutronic Genius offering precision and real-time feedback, we can customize your treatment to your needs.
