How does RF Microneedling work?
Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles 1) create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and 2) deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
When can you expect to see results?
A benefit of RF Microneedling is that the collagen you build is your own so results are natural, immediate and will continue to improve with time. It can take up to 4-6 weeks until the full benefits are apparent.
What makes Virtue RF a virtually pain-free treatment?
Virtue RF Microneedles are driven into the skin using the exclusive robotic precision delivery (RPD) system. The insertion is so exact that it creates no tearing or trauma to the skin (unlike microneedling pens or other RF microneedling systems that can scratch the skin causing pain, blood and sebum in the channels and mixed outcomes).
What can you expect after a treatment?
One of the key benefits of a Virtue treatment is that there is no social downtime. The skin may appear red for a few hours but the exclusive post-care regimen works to soothe the skin so most will only notice a post-treatment tightening and glow to their skin.
How long does a Virtue RF treatment take?
The length of a treatment depends on the area being treated and the protocol being followed. Typically a full face treatment will take 20 minutes.
Who is the right candidate for Virtue RF?
Virtue RF is a truly ageless procedure. It is used as a preventative and a corrective treatment for patients with light to dark skin types. It is important to talk to your provider about any concerns you might have before your Virtue RF treatment.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Virtue RF can be used to tighten and tone skin on the face, neck, decollete, hands and body. The Virtue RF system has the capacity for multiple handpieces to optimize treatments in specific areas.
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended.
