How does RF Microneedling work?
Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles create microscopic channels that stimulate the natural protection of collagen and deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
What areas can be treated with VirtueRF?
VirtueRF can be used to treat the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and knees.
What is the pain level of VirtueRF treatment?
VirtueRF 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). Your provider may apply numbing cream prior to the treatment for added comfort depending on the area of concern.
How long does a VirtueRF 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.
What can you expect after a treatment?
One of the key benefits of a VirtueRF 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. Your provider may recommend no makeup for 24 hours and of course, it’s always important to use sun protection.
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.
Who is the right candidate for VirtueRF?
VirtueRF is a truly ageless procedure. It is used as a preventative and 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 VirtueRF treatment?
How many treatments will I need?
Most providers recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended.
What does it mean to be a “platform” RF microneedling system?
Unique to the VirtueRF system is that it has the capacity for multiple hand pieces increasing the number of areas, depths, and concerns that can be addressed in one treatment session.
VirtueRF Microneedling Treatment
The VirtueRF Microneedling Platform is the most advanced RF microneedling device available today. Regardless of your skin goals, the VirtueRF is unique to each patient’s needs. This treatment has little to no downtime and covers a wide variety of skin concerns and has also proven to be a more comfortable experience compared to other microneedling treatments.
The VirtueRF is commonly paired with other skin treatments or procedures. The Microcurrent Dual Face Mask is used after the treatment to soothe skin and eliminate redness for better results after treatment. First, a wet mask rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, is placed on the skin. A second dry mask, woven with scientifically proven and patented Tissue X™ technology, generates a microcurrent without the use of a separate device, electricity or metals. The microcurrent drives the wet mask’s skin soothing & revitalizing ingredients – sodium hyaluronate, aloe vera extract and caffeine – deeper into the skin.
Overall, results may vary depending on the skin goals for each patient.
