You Need a Genius to Treat Acne Scarring

But what if you could deliver that energy directly into the dermis? Then you’d have Lutronic Genius, and you’d have a great procedure for treating a variety of skin issues.

We offer Lutronic Genius at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics.

How does Lutronic Genius work?

The goal of improving skin texture and firmness is collagen. Collagen is the protein in the body responsible for providing the underlying structural framework in the dermis layer of the skin. The problem is that every year after we celebrate our 20th birthday our bodies produce one additional percentage point less collagen than the previous year. Add that up and at age 45 your skin has 25 percent less collagen. That’s why aging skin sags, forms lines and wrinkles, and becomes less firm and plump.

To address this decline, the goal is to have the body think it has been wounded. It responds with a wound-healing response, which is the production of new amounts of collagen and elastin to heal the wound.

Lutronic Genius does this in two ways. First, as the pen-like handpiece is moved across the treatment area, it penetrates the skin with 49 gold-plated needles. These needles create hundreds of tiny punctures throughout the epidermis, penetrating down into the dermis. Although they are so small that they fully heal within just a couple of hours, these punctures make the body assume there is a wound, so it responds with first remodeling the existing collagen across the treated areas. Then it begins production of new collagen that continues for a few weeks.

The second collagen trigger comes as the gold-plated needles penetrate into the dermis layer. At their full penetration depth, each needle delivers a burst of radiofrequency energy from its tip. This energy is sent directly into the dermis and it doesn’t have to first travel through the epidermis. That means there is no concern about burning the epidermis, so the RF energy level can be increased. When the body senses heat (which the RF energy converts to when in the dermis) in the dermis it assumes there has been a wound, and it responds with collagen remodeling and new production.

This combined method for collagen renewal is how Lutronic Genius improves and tightens the skin.
