RF Microneedling in Elgin at Dundee Dermatology

The Science Behind RF Microneedling

Our RF microneedling technology is the Genius® system by Lutronic. This adaptive delivery system adjusts to deliver the precise energy with its gold-tipped needles. These needles cause controlled “micro-wounds” that induce collagen and elastin production, as well as tissue remodeling.

The radiofrequency energy works to build proteins, elasticity, and skin resiliency for tightening effects. We can treat both the face and neck with the Genius RF microneedling system.

How It Works

The Treatment Process


We’ll start with a skin consultation to ensure that RF microneedling is the best treatment for your needs. We’ll use skin imaging and discuss your desired results and treatment areas. We’ll finish the consultation by recommending a number of treatment sessions needed for your goals.


The process starts with application of a topical anesthetic cream to prepare your skin and ensure your comfort. Then, we will use the RF microneedling device over the face and, for some patients, the neck.

Frequently Asked Questions

RF microneedling is best for skin tightening and skin resurfacing. The radiofrequency energy helps address skin laxity concerns, while the microneedling itself triggers tissue rejuvenation.

RF microneedling results are progressive. As your skin starts producing new collagen and elastin, you’ll notice your results emerge in the weeks following each treatment session.

Downtime is minimal; your skin will be tender and have redness immediately after treatment for the first 24 hours, and may be sensitive for several days. We will provide you with aftercare instructions, but it is important to avoid direct sun exposure for the week after to protect your skin, and we always recommend wearing sunscreen to prolong your results.

RF microneedling can be a great alternative to laser treatments that are unsafe for tanned or deep skin tones. We can meet with you for a consultation to ensure your candidacy.
