Microneedling is a medical aesthetics treatment that uses thin and sterile treatment needles to create tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin. Your body perceives these channels as a micro-injury and reacts with a swift healing response.
In this response, the body produces new collagen and elastin cells, which smooth and plump the skin. Microneedling is an excellent option for people who want to improve the look and feel of their skin without injectables or invasive cosmetic procedures.
Virtue RF takes microneedling to the next level by incorporating radiofrequency energy. That energy creates heat in the deeper layers of skin, leaving the surface at a comfortable temperature. The heat further stimulates collagen and elastin production, boosting the results achieved by microneedling alone.
One of the reasons why microneedling treatments are so popular is that they can address a wide range of issues at once. That makes Virtue RF an excellent value for your investment, especially when compared to the norm: coming in for multiple treatments to improve different conditions.
Some of the common skin complaints that Virtue RF microneedling treatments can improve are:
During your initial consultation, you’ll learn more about what the treatment can do for you and discuss the treatment timeline. You’ll notice some improvement immediately after your treatments, but it takes 4-6 weeks for the full results to develop. You may need a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.
All this talk of needles and heat can make it sound like Virtue RF treatments are painful. In reality, there is very little discomfort associated with microneedling.
The Virtue RF system uses robotic technology to deliver precise needle insertion into the skin. The treatment needles will reach deep enough to trigger the desired remodeling results without tearing or scratching the surface of your skin.
The Skin Med Spa team can apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to your treatment to help reduce sensations in the area of focus. Virtue RF also uses Tissue X™ microcurrent technology to activate sheet masks that soothe and nourish your skin immediately after your treatment.
That results in minimal redness and swelling in the hours after your session. You may want to avoid wearing makeup or using hot water on or near your face for a couple of days to give your skin time to adjust.
