Youthful Complexions without the Invasive Aftershocks

by Point Lumineux Staff  


As we age, we strive to keep abreast of the latest noninvasive procedures to look and feel our best. One such treatment is Radiofrequency (RF) Technology, a skin and fat contouring protocol to reduce cellulite, tighten and resurface the skin, and reduce wrinkles or rhytids. RF addresses these conditions without anesthesia, surgery, pain or downtime.  

It’s important to choose a medical practice which operates RF machine with enough focused intensity to drive results. Not all machines are created equally, but at Point Lumineux, we utilize the Juvashape by Alma Lasers for its intensity and dual depth technology.

Juvashape uses focused radiofrequency thermal energy to deliver heat and friction which causes volumetric contractions. By selecting the depth of the energy, this option makes Juvashape different from other radio frequency machines on the market. This makes it possible to target the deep layers of skin and tailor a treatment for each client.

The overall benefits include deep dermal healing, increased circulation and blood flow which strengthens tissues and improves texture, and improved drainage of retained fluids from subcutaneous adipose tissue which, in turn, causes a reduction in size. This non-invasive treatment will smooth the hard-to-tone areas both comfortably and quickly.

Juvashape also resurfaces the skin with microablative radiofrequency needling. This technology uses ablative and thermal heating applied to the skin. The RF device creates microscopic perforations in the surface of the skin which leaves the skin surrounding that micro-wound intact. The focused RF energy works in the deepest layers of the skin, enabling it to produce more collagen in the treated area. Simultaneously, the healthy tissues promote healing and a return to the natural, radiant appearance of youth.

The microablative RF needling skin therapy helps to improve the complexion by rejuvenating, tightening and lifting the skin. RF needling can help with the removal of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, irregular skin texture, cratering, stretch marks, and improving elastin and collagen growth for a more youthful look.

Traditional microneedling uses a device that creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s own healing response to start producing collagen and elastin. This is what tightens the skin to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scarring.  However, RF needling is a less invasive treatment that adds the element of radio frequency for deeper penetration and more dramatic results with less trauma inflicted on the skin.


Most clients experience immediate results from this procedure, but at Point Lumineux, we recommend between two and eight sessions to achieve maximum results. Since every complexion is unique, we also offer complimentary consultations with our technicians before starting the treatment protocol. For more information, call 941-217-6828 or visit
