Genius Laser Q&A

HOW DOES RADIO-FREQUENCY WORK TO IMPROVE SKIN?​

Radio-frequency energy heats the tissue to stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scarring and loose skin.​

Genius RF induces tissue remodeling with the production of new collagen and elastin to provide an alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.

HOW DOES GENIUS WORK?​

Genius works by delivering radio-frequency energy through gold-plated needles, stimulating your own body’s collagen and elastin production. ​

By providing “real-time” feedback, the energy delivered is precise for each patient, each treatment and each pass with the microneedles.


What conditions does Genius treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles​
  • Scar and acne scarring​
  • Sagging skin​
  • Overall aging​
  • Face rejuvenation​
  • Neck rejuvenation

Safe for all skin types!

HOW IS GENIUS SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?

With many treatments, there is a risk of stimulating the basal layer of skin where melanocytes are produced, which can cause hyperpigmentation. ​

Genius RF is delivered into the deeper layers of the dermis, bypassing the basal layer and greatly reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation. Therefore, even darker skin types can benefit from being treated with Genius.

Realtime Feedback of Pulse Delivery

Impedance sensing registers quality of pulse delivered for accurate energy delivery.


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?​

Q: How does the treatment feel?​

A: You will feel some heat and pressure. The treatment is tolerable but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Compared with CO2 lasers, many find Lutronic Genius much more comfortable.​


Q: How long does the treatment take and how many will I need?​

A: The treatment time varies depending on the area being treated. A treatment could take as little as 30 minutes and up to an hour. Your physician will discuss your goals, which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just one treatment!


Q: How long is the downtime?​

A: There is initial redness and swelling which substantially subsides after 24-36 hours, but can take up to a week to completely resolve. Most people resume normal activities within 48 hours.

Q: How long before I see results?​

A: You can expect to see some changes within a day or two after the procedure. However, your body will continue to build collagen for several weeks after that, so you will see improvement over the next six months. ​


​Q: How long will my results last?​

A: Unlike many other procedures, this has long-lasting results as it is your own body at work. With proper maintenance and a good skin care regimen, the effects could last for years.
