Lutronic Genius for Skin Renewal
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
At Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we’re constantly on the lookout for the best technology to serve our patients. Lutronic Genius is just another example of that philosophy. Lutronic Genius provides a breakthrough in how radiofrequency energy is delivered into the skin. This combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy is great for a variety of skin issues.
What is Lutronic Genius?
Lutronic Genius is the most advanced microneedling system available. The FDA cleared the procedure in February 2019, making it the latest technology combining microneedling and radiofrequency energy.
How does Lutronic Genius work?
The Genius handpiece has a tip with 49 microscopic needles. These needles each feature a gold tip with an electrode. Once we set the Genius penetration depth, we move the handpiece across the treatment areas. The needles penetrate the skin. At the precise moment the needles are at full penetration depth they deliver the radiofrequency energy. This energy can be delivered at a higher level because it doesn’t have to penetrate the epidermis. When RF energy has to first penetrate the epidermis it can lead to burning, so the energy level has to be decreased. Genius is able to deliver more energy directly into the dermis layer. This is where the maximum collagen growth occurs.
What happens when RF energy and microneedling are combined?
Lutronic Genius works by triggering an increase in collagen production, known as neocollagenisis. When the RF energy is delivered under the skin it instantly converts to heat. The Genius software precisely controls the level of heat delivered. When the body senses heat in the dermis layer of the skin it responds as if a wound has occurred. This response is to instantly trigger new production of collagen and elastin to “heal” the perceived wounds, although there isn’t actually any wound. After all, the tiny punctures created by the microscopic needles begin to heal immediately and are fully healed in just a couple of hours. This increased collagen production and remodeling improve a variety of skin conditions.
