What is Microneedling?
RF Microneedling, such as Genius RF Microneedling by Lutronic, is an innovative procedure that combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling to promote skin rejuvenation and address various concerns, such as skin tightening. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and involves tiny needles delivering controlled heat deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving texture, tone, and elasticity.
Genius RF Microneedling is a non-surgical option for enhancing the skin's appearance and reducing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin irregularities. It is important to consult a qualified professional to discuss personalized treatment options and expectations.
THE THREE PHASES OF WOUND REPAIR
- Phase I: The skin is pierced, activating the immune system to facilitate the disinfecting of wounds, removal of debris, increase in blood flow, and tissue regeneration.
- Phase II: New granulation cells and temporary collagen (type III) and elastin form to rebuild the wound while a network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound. The type III collagen is replaced by stronger type I collagen, which leads to a tightening or "shrink-wrap" effect on the skin.
