The appearance of stretch marks can often feel like a mystery. These marks can appear on the belly, back, arms, and thighs – sometimes seemingly overnight. But new aesthetic devices can allow us to eliminate these marks as soon as they develop. Here at Infinity Med Spa, we offer the advanced Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling system, which rejuvenates the skin and eases the appearance of striae without hassle or extended downtime.


What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks, or “striae,” appear when our skin is stretched abruptly. When too much stretching happens, collagen and elastin are created and rush to the scene to repair the damage. As your body heals itself, it causes the red or white lines consistent with stretch marks to appear. Rapid weight gain and pregnancy are the most common causes of stretching, though growth spurts in children can also cause these marks.

How Is This Issue Addressed?

Lutronic Genius® RF Microneedling is a device that combines the rejuvenating power of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Microneedling is a method of creating tiny, targeted injuries in the skin. These injuries stimulate collagen production, causing it to rush to the scene and repair the body properly. RF energy speeds up this process, giving you spotless results in only a handful of sessions.

What Can I Expect?

A Lutronic Genius® session begins with a topical anesthetic applied to the skin. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the microneedling handpiece is glided along the treatment area. It’s common for patients to experience a sensation of heat as the device releases RF energy. 

The entire process usually takes less than an hour, but treatment time will vary based on your needs and the treatment area. Treatment results tend to improve over time, and your stretch marks should become less noticeable over the weeks and months following your visit.
