If you feel insecure about the tone or texture of your skin, Genius RF Microneedling is the latest advancement in microneedling technologies. Dr. Grady Core & licensed medical Aesthetician Adina Barnett work closely together and with their patients to make sure every treatment is the best, most appropriate method of achieving the desired results. They will be happy to assess your case and discuss your options during a private consultation at Core Plastic Surgery.

What Is Microneedling?

Traditional Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by creating microchannels in the skin with slim, medical-grade, gold-plated needles. The microchannels signal the need for healing, encouraging newer, healthier skin to rise to the surface more quickly. The fine needles additionally stimulate the production of new collagen within the skin, resulting in firmer, more supported skin. Lutronic Genius RF microneedling takes things a step further and achieves impressive skin renewal with the application of fine, medical-grade needles and radiofrequency waves to the skin.

The Genius RF system also features “real-time” feedback, which ensures precision and maximum customization. Microneedling by itself is a convenient skin-renewing treatment. Once you include the benefits of radiofrequency energy, the results become even more impressive! The Genius platform takes microneedling to the next level by emitting RF energy to the deep layers of the dermis. The radiofrequency energy creates a safe but effective degree of heat to promote tissue contracture, as well as greater collagen production and elastin regeneration. Skin looks fuller, tighter, and more volumized than after traditional microneedling. The treatment will target acne scars and skin irregularities. Over the weeks following, the older, damaged surface skin will be replaced by new, fuller skin cells!

Downtime after Genius treatment is short and convenient. Most of our Birmingham microneedling patients experience a mild pink flush for 36 to 48 hours. Many patients are back to work the next day!

Genius RF microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. This system is uniquely designed to deliver radiofrequency energy deeper into the dermis, bypassing the basal layer, which reduces the chance of hyperpigmentation. The Genius platform is safe for darker skin complexions. The depth of the needles and level of energy are customized to the treatment area and goals of the procedure. If you are unhappy with your skin tone, have early signs of facial aging, or wish you had a healthier glow, the Genius RF microneedling system delivers custom, long-lasting rejuvenation.

All of our Birmingham microneedling candidates will receive a private consultation at Core Plastic Surgery with both Dr. Core and Aesthetician Adina. This is an opportunity to share questions you may have about the treatment. Any questions are welcome!

During your consultation for microneedling Birmingham aesthetic experts at Core Plastic Surgery will assess the health of your skin to determine the needs of your unique case. Your health history, medication-use, and supplement-use will be taken into consideration when creating your treatment plan to create the most appropriate option for you. Based on the health of your skin and your goals for your appearance, your Microneedling treatment will be customized to achieve your preferred, glowing results.


You will be given personalized preparation and after-care instructions before your microneedling appointment date. In general, patients are advised to discontinue use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen and naproxen for two weeks before your treatment. Patients will also be asked to discontinue blood-thinning supplements, including turmeric, fish oil, garlic, and ginkgo Biloba.

Avoid retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), and beta hydroxy acids for 5 to 7 days leading up to your treatment date. Do not wax or electrolysis the treated area for 5 to 7 days before your session. The day of your treatment, do not apply makeup or lotions to the treatment site.

Treatment Details

Genius RF Microneedling is performed within 45 minutes to an hour. Patients will receive a topical anesthetic, which will keep them completely comfortable during their treatment. Once the treatment area has been sterilized and the patient is comfortable, Medical Aesthetician Adina Barnett will perform the microneedling treatment using the easy-to-manipulate Genius RF handpiece.

The handpiece contains 49 insulated microneedles, which will emit radiofrequency to the deep dermal layers. The length of the needle and the level of radiofrequency will be adjusted to address specific skin issues appropriately. The microneedles will create clean microchannels in the skin to promote skin renewal and enable new, healthy skin to rise to the surface. Lutronic microneedling's targeted RF application will promote tissue coagulation, stimulate greater collagen production, and accelerate healing. You will likely experience some warmth and pressure during the treatment. Compared to traditional laser skin rejuvenation treatments, many patients say this is much more comfortable.

After Microneedling:
What To Expect

By incorporating Radiofrequency technology, patients enjoy better results and a shorter recovery from their treatment. The RF waves coagulate blood vessels, thereby preventing much of the post-procedure bruising that can occur after traditional microneedling. The skin may be pink or mildly flush for 36 to 48 hours after microneedling. The skin may be dry or mildly swollen for two to seven days following your treatment. The majority of these symptoms will be diminished within a few days of treatment. Do not use ice applications or arnica.

Most patients are back to their usual schedules within 48 hours of their Lutronic Genius RF Microneedling treatment! Mineral makeup can be worn after 24 hours. You will receive aftercare instructions, including a recommendation of which gentle skincare products will be best to use. Keep sun exposure to a minimum for two weeks. If you do have to be outdoors, use adequate sun protection, including sunscreen and a hat. Patients are advised to avoid saunas, jacuzzies, pool, and anything else that will possibly irritate the skin for 24 hours. Avoid taking NSAID medications 36 to 48 hours following their treatment.


Patients will enjoy the results of their Lutronic Microneedling in two phases. A reduction in scars, blemishes, and other surface irregularities will occur within two weeks. Over the weeks following the treatment, your body will produce more collagen and healthy elastin. As a result, the skin will become smoother, fuller, and tighter. This will effectively fill in fine lines and wrinkles, lift facial contours, and deliver a healthy, vibrant glow! Optimum results will be seen within two months.

Patients enjoy complete, long-lasting rejuvenation within three sessions. If you would like to learn more about what the Genius RF platform can do to address your acne scars, skin laxity, and skin volume, all in one safe, comfortable treatment, schedule a private consultation at Core Plastic Surgery today.
