What is Genius RF?

The Genius RF is an incredibly advanced radiofrequency microneedling system.

Microneedling is the process of creating controlled, microscopic abrasions under the skin to stimulate collagen production and overall rejuvenation. The Genius RF also delivers radiofrequency or RF waves to the skin, which further the production of collagen and elastin. What is unique about this system is that it includes constant live monitoring of needle depth and RF with each pulse, so it adjusts itself in real-time to accommodate different skin thicknesses, skin pigmentations, age variations, and skin densities. This type of customization is difficult to achieve with other systems, but with Genius RF Microneedling Asheville patients get the best.

Genius RF vs Morpheus8

Both the Morpheus8 and Genius RF are microneedling technologies that include RF energy.

The Morpheus8 was one of the first systems to develop a deeper penetrating needle and to use RF simultaneously. The Genius RF takes these elements a step further with its highly advanced real-time customization capabilities.


Genius RF tightens skin, softens wrinkles, and improves skin texture with a unique combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling, penetrating your skin to the deepest layers, and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The ultra-fine, gold-plated needles create controlled microinjuries which prompt skin to heal itself, while the radiofrequency heat uses these channels to consistently and precisely deliver energy to encourage the regeneration of elastin and collagen.

This combination treatment utilizes a non-ablative approach, meaning that the skin is left intact and healing begins as soon as the treatment session ends, expediting the healing process and providing the opportunity for additional sessions to maximize results. Additionally, Genius RF treatments are designed to be fully customizable, taking into account sun exposure, skin type, body area, treatment depth, tissue thickness, and age.

Genius RF can be used to treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Acne pitting and other scars
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks

Am I a candidate for Genius RF Microneedling?

Since the Genius RF Microneedling system is so versatile and can adjust to so many skin types, almost anyone who wants to see improvement in their skin is a candidate.

You should be in generally good health and free from any active skin infections. Those who are currently using or have recently used Accutane will need to wait to receive this treatment. Great candidates for Microneedling are those who are interested in treating:

  • Early signs of aging
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks

Consultation and Preparation

During a consultation, we will take a full medical and aesthetic treatment history. We will also discuss your ultimate cosmetic goals and make a plan for your treatment sessions and frequency. If you are prone to cold sores, we may ask you to take a preventative medication prior to your treatment. Your skin will need to be free of any makeup, moisturizer, and sunscreen before your appointment.

Microneedling Procedure

At your appointment, your skin will be prepped with a cleanser, and a topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure optimal comfort. Your provider will make 2-3 passes over your skin with the Genius RF handpiece. Typically the procedure takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. At the end of the session, a soothing cream will be applied.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You will be able to resume most normal activities directly after the procedure.

There may be some light redness, swelling, and slight crusting, but this should resolve completely within about 2-3 days. It is very important not to pick at any crusting that occurs as this can complicate healing and even cause scarring. You will need to use an approved cleanser and moisturizer for at least a week after treatment. Results will begin to show a few days after your Microneedling treatment. However, as collagen keeps building, you will continue to see improvements for weeks or months. Results typically last 2-3 years, and we suggest light maintenance treatments every year to extend the results.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are no treatments available that stimulate the production of collagen that are genuinely pain- and discomfort-free in nature. Because of this, we use medical-grade topical numbing agents to maximize your comfort. Certain treatment areas may be more sensitive than others, but patients commonly report sensations of pressure and heat that are quite tolerable following the use of the anesthetic cream.

As with most microneedling treatments, side effects can include redness, dryness, swelling, and bruising.

Depends on your desire for improvement

The cost for Genius RF largely depends on what area(s) you want to address, the size of the treatment area(s), how many sessions are recommended and what concerns you are looking to improve. These factors will determine your treatment plan for achieving optimum results. The minimum starting cost for Genius RF is $975.

After your initial treatment plan, results usually last several months. After that, we usually recommend follow-up treatments 2-3 times a year to maintain brilliant collagen regeneration.
