Lutronic Genius is a highly effective radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment that boosts collagen production in the skin. As we get older, collagen and elastin production slow down dramatically, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin.
The even better news…Genius is safe for all skin types!
Depending on your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals, the doctor can increase or decrease both needle depth and energy output to achieve your desired results. As treatment is in progress, the Genius device passes over the skin, quickly inserting tiny gold-plated needles to the exact depth prescribed by Dr. Chang. In less than one second, RF energy pulses through the needles, penetrating into the deep layers of the skin to induce coagulation.
This coagulation process is the key to turning on the body’s own amazing healing abilities!
Genius effectively treats:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Deep creases
- Scars (including acne scarring)
- Drooping skin
- Skin laxity
- Face & neck rejuvenation
Treatment with Genius
Although some clients see minimal results in just one treatment, a series of treatments is needed to produce optimal results. Dr. Chang will determine how many treatments you need. Each session takes 30-60 minutes.
During the treatment you will feel heat and pressure in your skin. Many clients say that Genius is more comfortable than CO2 laser treatments. Dr. Chang will provide you with pain-relieving solutions, if needed, to help you feel more comfortable during your procedure.
As Dr. Chang performs the treatment, tiny gold-plated microneedles are injected below the skin to the depth that is most effective for you. When the needles are under the skin, she will deliver radiofrequency energy through the needles, precisely coagulating the dermis.
The Genius is unique because the doctor delivers the RF energy through a 3-pass pattern, offering maximum results by coagulating the skin at multiple depths. Once coagulation occurs, your skin will boost its collagen production as part of the healing process.
You will experience:
- Redness and swelling for about 24-36 hours.
- For some, it can take as long as one week for all signs of treatment to go away.
- Many clients do treatment on a Friday so they can recover over the weekend.
- Within 1-2 days, you will start to see positive changes in skin texture.
- It takes about 6 months until full results are achieved.
Genius treatments last longer than many other aesthetic treatments because the improvements are made deep in the skin. As your body boosts collagen production, facial areas will naturally tighten and look smoother and more youthful.
Although results can last for years, Dr. Chang highly recommends:
- Regularly maintaining your results with periodic Genius treatments.
- Taking excellent care of your skin with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and a high-quality skin care regimen.
