Virtue RF Microneedle: The Newest Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Technology
What is Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling?
RF Microneedling is the precise delivery of radiofrequency heat energy to the layer of skin called the dermis, where collagen and elastin reside. The Virtue RF Microneedling device utilizes insulated needles in a grid. Insulated needles enable delivery of RF heat energy only at the tip of the needle. The insulated part of the needle passing through overlying layers of skin does not deliver heat energy, protecting the epidermis from unnecessary damage; thereby, decreasing downtime and discomfort.
This revolutionary treatment is highly effective for:
- Skin Tightening for face, neck, chest, arms, above knees or anywhere
- Improvement of Skin Tone and Texture
- Improvement of Crepey Skin
- Reduction of Pore Size
- Correction of Acne Scars and Surgical Scars
- Treatment of Acne
How does Virtue RF differ from other RF Microneedle devices?
Unlike other RF Microneedling Devices such as Infini, Morpheus or Profound, Virtue RF can deliver both monopolar and bipolar RF energy. Monopolar energy, which radiates downward and not between the needles, leads to significantly less discomfort and higher energy delivery than bipolar only devices. Only the Virtue RF Device offers both monopolar and bipolar capability. Often, both will be utilized in one treatment for synergistic effects at various treatment depths.
Does Virtue RF treatment hurt?
With the application of topical numbing cream, most find the Virtue RF Microneedle treatment is tolerable with minimal to moderate discomfort. You may add Pronox for pain control, if desired.
How many treatments are required and how long until I will see results?
Depending on the condition of the skin in the area being treated, we generally recommend 3-4 treatments at 4-6 week intervals. Improvement in tone and texture are can be seen within a couple weeks following each treatment. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction are generally seen between 2-3 months after each treatment.
For long-term results and skin maintenance, a proper skin care regimen is necessary to protect from UV damage, stimulate collagen production and encourage natural exfoliation. Pair any of our treatments with Mikel Kristi Skin Care for optimal long-term results and anti-aging.
How much downtime is associated with Virtue RF Microneedling?
Post treatment, patients generally experience 1-2 days of redness and dryness of skin. Makeup can be applied the day after treatment. Your recommended skin care regimen will be reviewed for optimal results.
