What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Are you tired of dull, pigmented, or flat skin that unnecessarily ages you? Dr. Eric Wilkerson utilizes a non-invasive approach that produces gorgeous outcomes for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with the revolutionary Lutronic Genius® technology. The Lutronic Genius, similar to the Morpheus8® RF device, utilizes heat to stimulate the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. This device is clinically-backed to provide exact needle depth and give your provider feedback in real-time for results that are tailored to you. At Fort Lauderdale Dermatology, we often add RF microneedling with the Lutronic Genius into our patient's treatments to generate healthier skin, a much smoother texture, a luminous complexion, and tightening of loose skin. Contact our Fort Lauderdale, FL office to set up your consultation to get clearer, healthier-looking skin.

Who is a good candidate for RF Microneedling?
If you have scarring or are starting to notice age spots, discoloration, smile lines, and other skin flaws like age and sun exposure, RF microneedling with the Lutronic Genius may be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling may be a great option if you wish to:
- Firm the skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Enhance skin tightness and quality
- Focus on improving smile lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring
- Rejuvenate the skin for a younger, luminous look
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
The Lutronic Genius uses an instrument (with gold-plated needles at the end) that stamps gently into the skin to instigate new collagen foration as the skin rejuvenates. Some refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. The Genius handpiece offers high levels of precision that target your desired treatment areas and monitors your skin's response throughout the treatment for customizable results. New skin forms as the skin bounces back, leaving the top layer looking and feeling smoother, brighter, and more refreshed. While this process is commonly performed by itself, combining this advanced microneedling technique with radiofrequency technology enables us to optimize the results for our Fort Lauderdale, FL patients. The treatment should only take between 15 — 60 minutes in total, depending on the surface area of the treatment location. You will be numbed prior to treatment to keep you as comfortable as possible.
What Can I Expect After RF Microneedling?
Our Fort Lauderdale, FL patients can expect minute pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 36 hours after treatment, which will naturally shed when the inherent micro-injury has healed. You should be feeling up to resuming daily activities within 48 hours of treatment and can apply makeup as quickly as 24 hours after treatment. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin produces collagen over several months after having a microneedling with RF session, with noticeable results that can last for years. Best results are achieved with multiple treatments, ranging anywhere from 3 — 6 treatment sessions spaced a month apart from each other.
