RF Microneeding

You already know that microneedling gives you exceptional results and convenience, allowing you to get visible rejuvenation without invasive surgery. But did you know that the next-generation of microneedling is here and available at Marotta Plastic Surgery in Smithtown and Long Island?

Lutronic Genius™ RF microneedling (the RF stands for “radio frequency”) raises the bar on an already powerful and effective treatment, boosting your results in the same fast and safe procedure. You can learn more about the distinct advantages of Genius RF microneedling here and also find out if you qualify now.

What is Lutronic Genius™ RF microneedling and how does it work?

Microneedling is a technique used to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The procedure creates hundreds of tiny wounds in the skin by applying micro-needles to affected areas carefully and strategically. These wounds trigger your body’s natural healing response, the production of collagen and elastin, which will begin to repair these small wounds. Collagen and elastin are natural, body-produced proteins that give the skin its tone and texture. Consequently, microneedling is a completely natural and exceptionally safe treatment for all skin types.

Genius RF microneedling expands on these benefits. Radio-frequency microneedling delivers controlled radio-frequency energy to the skin. This energy increases your body’s healing response, encouraging more collagen and elastin production to occur than microneedling alone. As a result, RF microneedling candidates can achieve enhanced results from their microneedling treatment safely. The technique also still produces results completely naturally, a key benefit of microneedling treatments in general.

What are the benefits of Genius RF microneedling?

Genius RF microneedling offers several additional benefits that give patients superior results over microneedling alone. For example,

  • Genius RF Sensors collect feedback in real-time, giving your provider precise control over the amount of energy delivered
  • problems with the optimal amount of energy for exceptional results

If you are currently considering having a microneedling treatment, ask Dr. Marotta about the unique advantages a Genius RF microneedling treatment provides and ask if it is right for you.

What does Genius RF microneedling treat?

Like microneedling, Genius RF microneedling treats a range of common troublesome skin conditions, which include:

  • Mild facial lines and wrinkles
  • Scars on the face, including acne, chickenpox and surgical scars
  • Sun-damage
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Hyper-pigmentation issues
  • Enlarged pores

Genius RF can also treat additional facial concerns. Dr. Marotta can quickly assess whether Genius RF can help you during your in-person consultation.

What benefits does Genius RF microneedling provide?

Genius RF microneedling can produce beautiful and lasting benefits that far surpass those of microneedling alone. You can expect all of the following improvements from Genius RF microneedling:

  • Better skin tone
  • Smoothed lines and wrinkles
  • Decreased pore size
  • A reduction in skin-damaged features, such as acne scars, age spots and stretch marks

Genius RF microneedling also gives you completely natural results since it relies on your body’s natural collagen and elastin production to rejuvenate your skin for the ultimate in safety and effectiveness.

Do I qualify for Genius RF microneedling?

Most people who want the superior results that Genius RF microneedling offers will qualify for the procedure. Genius RF microneedling is safe for all skin types and skin tones and has very little risk for pigmentation issues post-treatment, such as hyperpigmentation. To be sure you qualify, schedule your in-person consultation with Dr. Marotta today and have an in-person exam. However, you should wait to have Genius RF microneedling if you are a current Accutane user, have open wounds on the skin or are pregnant or breastfeeding. You can safely have the procedure later if these conditions apply.

How is the procedure performed?

Genius RF microneedling is performed much like a standard microneedling procedure. First, the fully-trained nurses at Marotta Plastic Surgery will cleanse and numb your treatment area for your total safety. After the anesthetic has fully taken effect, your provider will begin your treatment. Most procedures last no more than an hour, making Genius RF microneedling not only highly effective but also exceptionally convenient.

How many Genius RF microneedling treatments will I need for optimum results?

Every patient is different and will respond to treatment differently. More severe symptoms may require more treatments to have the results you expect. Dr. Marotta will give you his personal recommendation on the number of treatments you will need to achieve your goals during your consultation. You may need more or fewer sessions than another patient. Typically, however, most patients obtain optimal results when they have three Genius RF microneedling treatments with four to six weeks between sessions.

Does Genius RF microneedling have any risks?

Genius RF microneedling is exceptionally safe. After treatment, most patients will have a few mild and temporary side effects, however, which are not a cause for alarm. Mild redness, swelling and tenderness are natural. Symptoms may feel like a mild sunburn. Some peeling is also typical. Most side effects will resolve within 24 hours and usually within 12. You should feel free to contact Dr. Marotta, however, if you have questions or concerns. Your wellbeing is our top priority.

Will I need to care for my skin differently after Genius RF microneedling?

After Genius RF microneedling, your skin will feel naturally sensitive. You should avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours and avoid intense sunlight for a couple of days. After this period, you can wear makeup again but you should also include sunscreen in your daily routine to protect your skin. You will want to continue to wear sun protection for a few months. You should also avoid using glycolic-acid treatments while your skin is still sensitive. This will help reduce heightened sensitivity and infection and also help you feel more comfortable.

When will I get my Genius RF microneedling results?

Genius RF microneedling produces superior, long-lasting results quickly. Visible improvements will begin to develop on the day of your treatment and continue for weeks afterward. Rejuvenation is the product of increased collagen and elastin production; as these proteins continue to build-up in the skin, you will see dramatic improvements to your skin’s tone and texture as well as reduced skin problems, which can last months or even years.
