How Does Genius Work?
Genius works by delivering radio-frequency energy through gold-plated needles, stimulating your own body’s collagen and elastin production. By providing “real-time” feedback, the energy delivered is precise for each patient, each treatment and each pass with the microneedles.
How Does Radio-frequency Work to Improve Skin?
Radio-frequency energy heats the tissue to stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scarring and loose skin. Genius RF induces tissue remodeling with the production of new collagen and elastin to provide an alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.
The Aging Process and RF Energy
The more we age, the more collagen is lost from our skin tissues. Collagen and elastin protein fibers in the skin lose their structure and don’t function as well as they once did. As a result of these changes, the skin experiences a decline in elasticity, structure, and health.
When the natural flexibility and tautness of the skin is lost, sagging occurs, along with the formation of wrinkles. Consequently, the natural contours that define your face lose shape, giving you a less youthful appearance.
RF (radiofrequency) energy is a widely researched tool that is used in cosmetic treatments. It works deep within the layers of the skin, heating it to the temperature required to naturally stimulate the production of new collagen. The energy causes coagulation, regenerating collagen and elastin fibers. This tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles, and makes the skin look younger.

Why Lutronic Genius is the Best RF Microneedling Device
Although there are many devices that claim to deliver RF energy deep into the skin, only Lutronic Genius is proven to achieve the actual depth necessary for maximum collagen and elastin formation. This is because many devices “push” the skin away or “bounce” off the skin and therefore don’t go as deep as they state.
Another important feature that sets the Genius apart, is called “impedance feedback” This basically means that the Genius uses a smart handpiece that scans the skin as it passes, allowing for changes in needle insertion to account for differences, like thickness or texture. This device gives real-time feedback about total energy delivery into the skin.
These advancements allow the Lutronic Genius to achieve unparalleled skin tightening and improvement in skin laxity compared to other RF devices.
How Does Radio-frequency Work to Improve Skin?
Radio-frequency energy heats the tissue to stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scarring and loose skin. Genius RF induces tissue remodeling with the production of new collagen and elastin to provide an alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries . The Genius RF device can be used on many areas, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, knees, and thighs.
Each of the microneedles in the Genius RF microneedling device has an adjustable depth and ranges from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm. Research has found that this range is the most effective to treat areas in order to stimulate collagen. The adjustability allows for extreme precision.
BEFORE AND AFTER
The Genius RF Microneedling Treatment Process
Genius RF microneedling is a treatment system that makes use of an easy-to-use handheld device that glides smoothly over the skin. It is completely painless and uses very thin needles. Treatment times are fast, and comfort levels are high.
The handheld device produces radiofrequency energy through 49 tiny insulated gold-plated microneedles. These microneedles create microscopic controlled microinjuries in the skin layers. Deep heat is delivered to where it is needed most, encouraging new collagen production.
Genius RF microneedling by Lutronic continues to improve skin for several subsequent months after treatment as new collagen is created in the tissues. Patients report significant improvement in the skin’s surface even after a year following their treatment sessions.
The treatment time varies depending on the area being treated. A treatment could take as little as 30 minutes and up to an hour. Your physician will discuss your goals, which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just one treatment! Unlike many other procedures, this has long-lasting results as it is your own body at work. With proper maintenance and a good skincare regimen, the effects could last for years.
There is initial redness and swelling which substantially subsides after 24-36 hours, but can take up to a week to completely resolve. Most people resume normal activities within 48 hours.
How Is Genius Safe For All Skin Types?
With many treatments, there is a risk of stimulating the basal layer of skin where melanocytes are produced, which can cause hyperpigmentation. Genius RF is delivered into the deeper layers of the dermis, bypassing the basal layer and greatly reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation. Therefore, even darker skin types can benefit from being treated with Genius.
How Does the Treatment Feel?
You will feel some heat and pressure. The treatment is tolerable but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Compared with CO2 lasers, many find Lutronic Genius much more comfortable.
I had such a great experience at Geria Dermatology. Everything was so quick and easy, nearly no wait time. Dr. Geria is very thorough and professional. He addressed all of my concerns and was very patient. Highly recommend seeing him, especially for cosmetic procedures, as I just had a microneedling session with him. I feel and look different already! So happy.
