Genius RF Microneedling is an innovative aesthetic procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling. Lutronic Genius® delivers precision in every pulse. Exact depth is impeccably achieved with superior needle and handpiece design, ensuring consistently brilliant results on face, neck and multiple body areas. Pinpoint coagulation zones are achieved while maintaining maximum patient comfort through Real-Time Impedance Monitoring.
Radiofrequency energy is heat used as an aesthetic treatment that tightens and lifts the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles. The energy also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the deep layers of your tissue.
Microneedling creates tiny puncture wounds in the surface layer of your skin to simulate an injury and induce collagen production. The Genius offers the sharpest, thinnest, smoothest needles on the market to deliver the best results.

Genius RF Microneedling uses advanced radiofrequency energy to stimulate higher levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid compared to microneedling alone. Genius RF Microneedling also uses a sophisticated handpiece which analyzes the skin as it passes, allowing for changes in needle penetration depth to account for differences in skin characteristics like thickness or roughness. This enables microneedling to be truly customized to the needs of each individual area of the patient’s skin.
During a Genius RF Microneedling treatment, your technician will cleanse your skin and apply a topical anesthetic to make you more comfortable. After about 60 minutes, they will enter information about your gender, age, and skin type into the Genius RF Microneedling device. During the procedure, they will repeatedly stamp your skin with the handheld device containing a cluster of needles. Each stamp into the skin pauses long enough to allow the needles to transmit heat into the lower dermal layer. The needles can be adjusted from 0.3 mm to 3.5 mm in depth. Depending on the area of the face or body, your technician will make two or three passes.
Genius RF Microneedling has the ability to improve or correct numerous skin issues including fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity (sagging), sun/age spots, scarring (including acne scarring), skin texture, overly large pores, and stretch marks.
After a Genius RF Microneedling treatment redness will occur for the rest of the day. Mild redness, swelling, pinpoint bleeding, bruising, and stamping marks from the needles could occur too and can last for about three days.
To get the optimal results from Genius RF Microneedling, we recommend a series of three treatments, once a month.
You may see improvements in skin texture and tone after just one Genius RF Microneedling treatment, but full results appear three to six months after your final treatment.
Genius RF Microneedling is most commonly used on the face, neck, and decollete. Although Genius RF Microneedling can be done to the stomach, arms, legs, and hips as well.
