Genius Radiofrequency Microneedling in Charlotte

Medically reviewed by Richard Paul Greenberg, MD on 2/28/24

At Ageless Remedies SouthPark Med Spa in Charlotte, NC, we help patients achieve a fresh, youthful appearance through Genius radiofrequency microneedling. This non-surgical cosmetic procedure rejuvenates the skin by combining two advanced technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy.

Microneedling involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production. Meanwhile, radiofrequency energy uses heat to target deeper layers of the skin, improving laxity and lessening wrinkles.

As the gold standard in radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, the Lutronic Genius® device employs both treatments, delivering customized amounts of RF energy via gold-insulated microneedles. By stimulating an increase in collagen creation, the device helps skin look smoother, tighter, and more youthful after a single treatment.

Benefits of Genius Radiofrequency Microneedling

RF microneedling is a comprehensive and effective solution for skin rejuvenation in Charlotte, NC. Key advantages include:

  • Diminishing wrinkles and fine lines, particularly around the eyes, mouth and forehead
  • Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
  • Reduction in the appearance of acne scars
  • Improvement in hyperpigmentation, affording an even skin tone
  • A non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure
  • Quick treatment sessions with no downtime

Genius Radiofrequency Microneedling for Specific Concerns

Genius RF microneedling allows for precise control over the depth and intensity of the treatment, making it suitable for a wide range of skin issues, including:

Fine Lines

Fine lines are subtle creases that appear around areas of facial movement, such as the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Though a natural part of aging, these lines can impact your self-esteem. Since RF microneedling induces collagen remodeling, the treatment smooths existing fine lines while also helping prevent the formation of new ones.


Wrinkles are deeper, more pronounced folds in the skin. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling offers a comprehensive, long-lasting solution to these stubborn creases by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, which continues to improve skin texture and reduce wrinkles over time. After a single treatment session, most patients notice a brighter, more youthful complexion.


As we age, collagen production naturally declines, and the skin loses its elasticity. This can cause sagging in the cheeks, eyebrows and eyelids, forehead, and corners of the mouth. Since Genius RF microneedling stimulates collagen contraction, the treatment can tighten and lift skin without all the risks and side effects of surgical intervention.

Large Pores

Enlarged pores can trap makeup, dirt, and environmental pollutants, leading to a dull and lackluster complexion. Genius radiofrequency therapy addresses this issue by promoting cellular turnover and stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells. As a result, pores are less conspicuous.


Scars, whether from acne, surgery, or other causes, can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Luckily, Genius RF microneedling effectively softens the appearance of scars by increasing collagen and elastin production. These proteins help to remodel and strengthen the scar tissue, offering a more even skin texture.

Tired Eyes

Genius radiofrequency therapy can rejuvenate tired, puffy eyes by tightening the skin in the periorbital area. This reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, creating a more youthful and refreshed appearance. RF microneedling can also improve the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by promoting circulation and lymphatic drainage.

What to Expect During Genius Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatment


Before receiving RF microneedling treatment, you will meet with a skincare professional to discuss your goals and concerns. During this consultation, the aesthetician will develop a comprehensive treatment plan and answer any questions you may have about the process.

Additionally, the aesthetician will discuss specific pre-treatment instructions, such as not applying makeup, lotions, sunscreens, or other cosmetics to your skin on the day of your treatment. If you have a history of cold sores, you may also be advised to take an oral antiviral prophylaxis the night before treatment.

During treatment

When you arrive at the facility, an aesthetician will move you to an exam room and apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once the anesthetic has numbed the skin, the aesthetician will clean the treatment area to remove any impurities or oils that could interfere with the procedure.

Next, your practitioner will use the Lutronic Genius®, a handheld device, to deliver controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s surface using fine needles. The needles will simultaneously emit radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and skin rejuvenation.

During treatment, you may experience some pressure and heat. The topical numbing cream applied earlier should help minimize any discomfort. Your aesthetician may also use an air-cooling device to soothe the skin.

All in all, the procedure will last between 15 and 30 minutes.

After treatment

After your Genius radiofrequency therapy, you may experience some redness and swelling. These side effects are typically mild and subside within 24 to 36 hours.

Your practitioner will provide specific post-treatment care instructions tailored to your skin type and concerns. These instructions typically include:

  • Using gentle cleansers and moisturizers recommended by your practitioner
  • Protecting the treated area from direct sun exposure by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen
  • Refraining from touching, picking, or scratching the treated area
  • Applying cold compresses or ice packs wrapped in a clean cloth
  • Avoiding strenuous exercise, hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, and activities that may cause excessive sweating for the first 24 to 48 hours
