RF Microneedling

Erase signs of aging and hyperpigmentation with RF microneedling and LaseMD Ultra skin rejuvenation treatments at Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead in Glendale, AZ!

What is The Total Skin Solution

Total Skin combines two best-in-class devices that treat skin from top to bottom. The Genius Microneedling delivers precise RF energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production for sustained improvement in scars, wrinkles, and laxity. The Ultra improves pigment and texture and rebuilds glowing, healthy skin through gentle but effective non-ablative fractionated treatments.

What is the Genius Intelligent RadioFrequency Medical Device?

The Lutronic Genius medical device delivers fractional radiofrequency and gentle microneedling for tighter, smoother, younger skin. The System includes a sterile tip with 49 insulated ultra-fine gold-plated micro-needles that safely deliver the RF energy to the precise tissue depth. This process creates tiny thermal coagulation points under the skin’s surface. These coagulation points trick our body into producing new collagen, elastin growth, and, ultimately, thicker, tighter, and smoother skin.

Not all RF Microneedling Devices are the Same

Genius is the only RF Microneedling device on the market that provides “real-time” feedback that the energy delivered is precise for each patient, each treatment, and each pass with the microneedles. In addition, Genius’s quality of needles is far superior to the competition.

Many consumers think all technology has the same effectiveness. For example, all Photofacial devices give the same results, or all RF Microneedling Devices are the same. However, this is false. Testing of devices side by side has proven this many times. The device’s efficacy depends on multiple factors, which include the power of the motor, the ability to read impedance (resistance) in the skin and adjust, the quality and size of needles, and whether the settings chosen are what are being delivered by the device.

We have chosen to invest in quality devices and quality companies.  Lutronic is one of the few companies that still houses internal R&D with 110 people, including 16 Ph.D. and 6 MDs. They own over 500 intellectual properties and have over 300 peer-reviewed studies. Even more impressive, they are the only Device company with a Pathology Lab onsite.  This allows them to test quickly, see results and adjust.  It also allows them to see how their devices stack up to the competition.

them to test their results and test competitor devices. They can see the results quickly and adjust. They also use this information to show their devices’ and competitors’ efficacy.

What is the LaseMD Ultra?

Lutronic ULTRA™ rebuilds glowing, even toned healthy skin through non-ablative fractionated treatments. The ULTRA fractionated laser resurfacing uses laser light to treat a portion of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched healthy skin to speed up recovery. The Ultra polishes and brightens the surface of your skin.

The Ultra 1927 Thulium is one of the best wavelengths to treat brown spots, melasma, sunspots, & wrinkles. This laser is the most powerful Thulium laser available today.  It is 20 times more powerful than Clear and Brilliant and ten years newer than Fraxel Dual and three times faster. The Ultra Laser also has more options to ‘spot treat’ more stubborn areas of pigment.

How Does The Total Skin Solution Work?

There’s an analogy that the Genius “Fluffs The Pillow” and LaseMD Ultra “Irons the Pillowcase. This is because Genius has proved it adds volume to the face with the creation of collagen and elastin and Ultra polishes and brightens the skin.  We use these two devices together because not only does it deliver better results than doing either one alone, it also speeds up the recovery process.

It is the ultimate treatment because, depending on the area, we treat the skin at three to four different depths. The more energy delivered to the skin always delivers better results.

The end result? Beautifully radiant, smooth, and younger-looking skin!

Am I A Good Candidate For RF Microneedling?

You’re a good candidate for this skin rejuvenation treatment if you want to minimize the appearance of wrinklesacne scars, hyperpigmentation, and facial skin sagging.

RF Microneedling can be used on all skin types and tones.

Where Can I be Treated?

The Total Skin can be used anywhere on the face or body. It is great for crepey skin and skin tightening so many of our patients treat their upper arms, abdomen, and thighs.  Many combine it with Sculptra, a bio-stimulator, for faster and better results.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?

The average Total Skin treatment takes about 45 to 60 minutes to perform, depending on the client and areas. You are in the office for approximately two hours so you can numb before the procedure.

What Results Will I See?*

Results include:

  • Brighter, more revitalized complexion.
  • Firmer skin.
  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Less visible hyperpigmentation.
  • Improvement in scarring.
  • Less skin sagging.


Does It Hurt?

It is not the most comfortable procedure, but it is tolerable.  We also have options to aid in the comfort.  We recently purchased the newest handpiece available and patients have reported it is significantly more comfortable than the previous handpiece.

We have a Zimmer 7 which blows cold air and really aids in comfort. We offer ProNox a nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and MKO Melts.  Melts are an IV-free conscious sedation compounded formulation. It consists of 3 mg of midazolam (Versed, Roche), 25 mg of ketamine HCl, and 2 mg of ondansetron (Zofran, GSK).  Both Pronox and Melts are available for a small fee.

When will I see results?

Usually by the time you come in for your second treatment you are already seeing the results, but you won’t see full results for three to four months do to the amount of time it takes Neocollagenesis (creation of new collagen)

Is There Any Downtime?

There really isn’t any downtime. You will be red on the day of treatment. The following two days, you may have some redness and slight swelling. For about a week, you will have a “sandpaper feel” to the skin, which you really can’t see. We provide a growth factor post-care kit to help recovery and take care of your skin. For a faster recovery and better results, you can add exosomes to your treatment. The day after your treatment you can apply makeup or tinted sunscreen.
