Lutronic Genius Rf Microneedling New Jersey
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scar and acne scarring
- Sagging skin
- Overall aging
- Face rejuvenation
- Neck rejuvenation
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.
