High Intensity Focused RF
Lutronic’s Genius™ Intelligent RF Delivery™ system replaces INFINI. Genius™ Intelligent RF is a more advanced minimally invasive method of skin renewal that effectively reduces acne scarring, softens wrinkles and improves skin laxity using microneedles to deliver high intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) energy to volumize and tighten tissue.
Genius’ proprietary technology provides real-time feedback for customized treatments with greater comfort. The upgraded handpiece is more gentle and also accommodates the standard 49 microneedle tip used on the face and neck as well as a larger tip with 81 microneedles for faster treatment of larger body areas (e.g. abdomen, arms, axilla, knees, thighs).
RF energy is delivered via insulated gold-coated microneedles to create precise and controllable fractionated Thermal Coagulation Points (TCPs) within specific dermal layers of the skin. Adjustable depth control allows for customized and reproducible treatments as well as the targeting of delicate areas. Genius™ Intelligent RF effectively minimizes the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in darker skin types and can be safely used on patients with melasma.
The three-dimensional delivery of energy maximizes skin volumization and contraction for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening. The microneedles are insulated where they contact the skin’s surface to avoid an undesirable thermal effect at the skin’s surface.
The Genius™ Intelligent RF procedure may take up to 60 minutes depending on the number of passes needed and the total surface area treated. Minor pinpoint bleeding is expected immediately after the procedure. Very mild swelling and redness are expected the day after the procedure. Optimum results may require a series of treatments with 4 weeks or longer intervals between treatments.
