Microneedling + Radio-Frequency Energy
Genius® RF Skin Tightening by Lutronic combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to treat the deepest layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin to tighten skin, improve skin texture, and soften wrinkles.
Genius® RF Skin Tightening uses ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin’s surface to create controlled micro-wounds. Radiofrequency heat follows these channels to stimulate the deepest layers of the skin precisely and consistently.
Unlike other ablative treatments that compromise the outermost layers of the skin, Genius® RF leaves the epidermis intact for faster healing and can be repeated every four to six weeks for optimal results. Treatments are customized for age, skin type, sun exposure, area of the body, tissue thickness, and depth.
Unique Features Of Genius® RF Microneedling
- This treatment can be performed all year round
- This treatment can be performed on all skin types
- This treatment can address areas all over the body
The perfectly balanced delivery of energy reaches precise depths to initiate the healing cascade for the growth of new collagen and elastin. The fine, gold-tipped needles cause less trauma on the skin’s surface making it a more comfortable procedure (compared to standard microneedling). Visible results can be seen after just one session and dramatic changes mimic those achieved with surgery after just 3—4 sessions done 6 weeks apart.

How To Prepare For Genius® RF Microneedling

What To Expect During Genius® RF Treatment
On the day of your treatment please arrive with a clean face. Photographs will be taken and skin will be numbed with a topical cream for patient comfort. Once numb, the applicator delivers radio frequencies through microneedles as it punctures the skin. A serum can also be applied after the treatment to help soothe and calm the skin. While treatment times vary depending on the size of the area being treated, on average Genius treatments take an hour and a half.
Recovery varies from person to person but most patients have little to no downtime. After the treatment patients will have a pink hue of the skin and sometimes tiny needle marks that generally disappear within 24—48 hours.
