Infini Genius RF Microneedling
At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania in the greater Philadelphia area on the Main Line in Devon, our board-certified dermatologists are proud to offer our patients smooth, glowing skin with Lutronic’s Genius. This radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device targets scars, stretch marks, festoons, and signs of aging, such as facial wrinkles and skin laxity, with minimal downtime in most cases.
With extensive training in the use of laser and energy-based devices, our experienced dermatologists can customize each patient’s treatment regardless of skin type. Helping you look and feel your best is always our number one goal. At your initial consultation, our expert physicians will create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic objectives.
How Does the Genius Work?
Clinical work carried out by the world-renowned in-house research center at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York directly influenced the currently approved treatments of the Genius. Our board-certified dermatologists have harnessed the knowledge from these studies to offer safe and effective treatments.
The Genius uses a process called collagen stimulation to repair the skin at a cellular level. During RF microneedling, the device delivers radiofrequency energy into the dermis to safely heat it and trigger your body’s own natural processes to induce collagen and elastin production. These proteins are essential components that build the healthy structure of your skin. As you age, your collagen and elastin levels naturally start to deplete. By increasing your collagen levels, your skin can become firmer and more supple over time.
What Can the Genius Treat?
The Genius is an excellent solution to address a variety of skin complaints and signs of aging, such as:
- Mild skin laxity (face, neck, body)
- Uneven skin texture
- Scarring (chickenpox, acne scars, etc.)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Festoons (eye bags)
Although the face is the most common treatment area for the Genius, the device is also effective at treating skin on the neck, chest, and arms.
When Will I See Results?
Some patients see initial results soon after their first treatment. However, most experience noticeable improvements over the course of a few months, which gives your body time to produce collagen, elastin, and promote healthy cell turnover. Full results are long-lasting once they become apparent.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
As a minimally invasive treatment, the Genius procedure requires little to no downtime. Most patients resume their normal activities immediately after treatment or the following day. Mild skin redness and swelling are expected for a few days, but these side effects shouldn’t impact your regular schedule.

Q: Is the Genius Safe?
A: Yes. Our board-certified dermatologists have used the Genius on numerous patients since it received FDA approval in 2018. Our expert physicians take every precaution to ensure your experience is as safe and effective as possible.
Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A: How many treatments you need depends on a variety of factors, including the progression of your aging symptoms and your aesthetic goals. Our dermatologists customize each treatment to your unique concerns and objectives.
Q: How Long Do Results Last?
A: It typically takes about 3 months to reach your full results. Once you do, your results can last for several months, even years. To maintain your results, your dermatologist may recommend touch-up treatments.
Q: Are There Any Side Effects?
A: Side effects with the Genius are generally mild. Most patients experience little more than minor swelling and redness, which lasts about 1-7 days. Protecting your skin from sun exposure is essential during the healing process. Always make sure to avoid direct sunlight whenever possible and wear sunscreen when you’re outdoors.
Q: Am I A Good Candidate for Genius?
A: The Genius is ideal for individuals with early signs of aging, such as mild skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles. You may also benefit from this minimally invasive treatment if you have shallow scarring, stretch marks, and festoons, which are the bags underneath your eyes.
