Microneedling in New Fairfield, CT and Thornwood, NY

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that can reduce the appearance of skin laxity, wrinkles and lines, and skin texture concerns such as acne scars.

How RF Microneedling Works

The Lutronic Genius RF device is an advanced microneedling system equipped with a series of very thin gold-plated needles. During the treatment, a handheld device containing the needles is passed over the skin. The needles create small wounds across the skin known as microchannels. This process triggers the skin’s natural healing response and is the product of essential structural proteins like elastin and collagen. During the process, the needles are also emitting radiofrequency energy at various depths into the skin tissue. The RF energy will further stimulate collagen production in the skin. This will help to tighten the skin, provide it with more elasticity, and improve its structure.

Why We Like RF Microneedling

The Lutronic Genius RF device can treat multiple common skin concerns which makes it a great option for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. The combination of traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy provides double the skin rejuvenating power in one treatment.

Treatable Areas


Treatment Process


The treatment area will first be evaluated by one of our medical aesthetic providers. We will discuss goals and treatment plans and make recommendations accordingly.


A topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area for approximately 45 minutes at which time it will be removed and the entire treatment area prepped with alcohol. The provider will then use the handheld device across the treatment area, creating several passes of microchannels while emitting RF at various depths of the skin. Pinpoint bleeding is completely normal during this process. Once complete, a protective post-treatment cream will be applied to the treatment area, and ice packs will be applied to soothe the treated skin. This procedure is mildly uncomfortable and takes about 35 minutes to complete.

Pre and Post-Treatment Do’s and Don’ts


Avoid direct sun exposure for 7 days prior to treatment. Use only the post-cream provided three times daily for five days following treatment. Have a gentle cleanser available at home.


Have an active sunburn. Use retinol or hydroquinone for two weeks prior to treatment.
