Tightened pores, softened lines around your eyes, visibly reduced facial scarring, and firmer, smoother skin.

These are just a few of the positive effects of radio frequency (RF) microneedling, a non-laser approach to skin rejuvenation for a glowing new look. If you're looking for a skin-care treatment that increases the production of collagen and elastin, with results that improve the texture and tone of your skin, you might be a good candidate for RF microneedling, a technology approved by Health Canada in 2019.

Among the variety of RF microneedling machines available, the Lutronic Genius® second generation Artificial Intelligence incorporated system, is the latest and most advanced in today's market. It's the preferred system used by Dr. Benny Panakkal, CEO and general manager of Lonsdale Skin and Laser and his team at North Vancouver's medical aesthetic clinic, offering cutting-edge aesthetic procedures.

Dr. Panakkal, who holds a PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine and was practising more than two decades abroad as an interventional cardiologist, shifted his career from practising medicine to pursue his passion for health and wellness by forming a Company which he now manages. 

In December 2022, his company acquired Lonsdale Skin and Laser Clinic (established in 2009), and has since been upgrading their services, including introducing RF microneedling to their suite of services.

A leader in the skin and laser care industry on the North Shore, Dr. Panakkal endeavours to provide clients with the most state-of-the-art skin care and anti-aging solutions.

"RF microneedling is a safe and effective technique for all skin types administered by our technicians, trained and certified by Lutronic," says Dr. Panakkal. "The Lutronic Genius® is the only second-generation device with exact needle insertion depth, Artificial Intelligence controlled real-time exact RF energy delivery."

"It has insulated needle tips, which ensures RF energy is delivered only at the precise intended depth," he explains. "The number of needles available is the highest, 49 per treatment head, used for face and neck. The thin and fine needles ensure minimal discomfort and downtime compared to other systems."​

​Treatment duration, aftercare

The most common areas patients seek treatment are their face, neck and décolleté, but the Lutronic Genius® can also be used on other areas of the body, with different treatment tips or heads.

The best candidates for treatment are people in good health looking to reduce the visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, mild sagging skin, acne scarring and sunspots.

"The important advantage of RF microneedling is it can be used on different skin tones and skin types unlike Laser Skin Resurfacing or Rejuvenation where darker skin tones are not suitable," reveals Dr. Panakkal.

"Ideally, you should book a set of three treatments one month apart for optimal results. We offer introductory grand re-opening packages with substantial savings, and an additional $150 savings can be availed if three treatment sessions are booked in advance."

Improvements will be noticeable after one month, Dr. Panakkal says, and he recommends Alastin's Regenerating Skin Nectar, pre- and post-sessions. Aftercare tips include: Wear sunscreen daily, avoid sun exposure and vigorous activities for 48-hours afterwards, and don't use makeup for the first 24-hours.

Open house

Their friendly and knowledgeable physicians and technicians will be available on May 18 to answer questions regarding skin-related problems and treatment options.

"We expect our partners from medical grade skincare lines to talk and explain their products," says Dr. Panakkal. "We plan to demonstrate some of our services, offer special pricing, gift coupons, and much more."

"We are more personal in approach and strive to give the best cost-effective skin care."
