Tell me more about GENIUS! Microneedling "on steroids!"

For many years I have touted the merit of microneedling for collagen induction—I mean really, who wouldn’t love smoother skin with more bounce?! After scouring the marketplace in search of the most efficient device, that is both cost effective as well as delivering on visible benefits with minimal down time, I have once again turned to Lutronic for their engineering prowess and portable platform that can meet the needs of my audience. I would love to welcome you to experience this incredible platform!

I personally have enjoyed the benefits of microneedling pens as well as Infini (the predecessor to Genius) and can tell you this device is truly incredible. The target group includes those hoping for skin tightening and acne scar reduction.

The Technology

So what makes RF microneedling so different? Well, microneedling is a process of creating controlled trauma using tiny needles to penetrate the dermal layer of skin where collagen formation is imperative. This small trauma is nearly invisible to the eye, but encourages cells within the skin to create a repair sequence “filling in” the tissues. Genius RF microneedling also creates microtrauma, but this time with a burst of thermal energy that truly “forces” (rather than simply encouraging) the fibroblasts to get to the work of repairing damage. So truly, you can consider this a more robust microneedling experience. Lutronic engineers have added smart technology that measures impedance of the skin and how much energy is being absorbed with each pulse, allowing us to adjust the energy being delivered as we treat, letting me know that I’m giving enough, but not too much! After all, you want amazing results, but not unnecessary discomfort.

The needle tips are some of the finest in the industry—Lutronic invested in a mill to create precision tips specifically for this device. The motor is also specialized with graceful and accurate insertion depth. The duration of RF pulse also enjoys precision. Ultimately all these individual factors meld, resulting in less pain and a more accurate treatment.

The Experience

How would I describe the treatment experience? Initially the face is cleansed and topical anesthesia is applied for about an hour. During this time you can enjoy flipping through a magazine, reading a book or getting caught up on social media. Old technology required heavy medication and the need for you to have a driver to pick you up after treatment, but with the Genius, truly you need a bit of acetaminophen, and can transport yourself! There is almost no bleeding with Genius, and recovery time is decreased. My personal course post Genius (with or without LaseMD) is initial pinkness and a bit blotchy day one, day two I can return to my usual tinted sunscreen the next day, and by the third I am back to normal. Those who are prone to acne may still have a rise in congestion several days after, but many do not. Rarely will someone report bruising.

The Results

Lutronic Genius should be considered for anyone hoping for skin tightening and lift or who suffer from acne scarring. Its target is the dermal layer of the skin, where the bounce lives. Paring this with Lutronic LaseMD also adds a brightening component by helping the epidermal shedding and neutralization of pigment irregularities such as sun damage and age spots. The result is a brilliant brightening and tightening that won’t leave your social calendar on hold!
