What Are the Benefits of VirtueRF?

Virtually Pain-Free Microneedling

The VirtueRF process is so exact that it creates nearly no tearing or trauma to the skin, unlike most other microneedling pens or other RF microneedling systems that scratch the skin, causing pain, bleeding, and sebum in the channels. Your provider may apply numbing cream prior to the treatment for added comfort.

Nonsurgical Treatment

VirtueRF is minimally invasive. Microneedles penetrate the skin using the exclusive robotic precision delivery system (RPD) to spare surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural healing response, allowing for tighter-looking skin without surgery.

Promotes Significant Collagen Growth

Virtue RF stimulates collagen production deep in your skin for excellent results that look natural. This treatment helps address wrinkles, sagging jowls, double chin, cellulite, loose skin, acne scarring, and more anywhere on the body.

What Can Be Achieved With VirtueRF Microneedling?

Improved Skin Tone

Fewer Lines and Wrinkles

VirtueRF microneedling stimulates collagen production, thereby strengthening the skin. This helps to reduce minor fine lines and wrinkles on the face, resulting in a more youthful complexion.

Reduced Acne Scars

Reduced Acne Scars

Microneedling is often chosen by patients hoping to reduce or eliminate their acne scarring. Because this treatment stimulates collagen, it can be very useful when addressing minor facial scars, like acne scars.

VirtueRF Microneedling Treatment

The VirtueRF microneedling treatment is conducted in our office. While the procedure is known for being virtually pain-free, a numbing cream is applied for additional comfort.

VirtueRF Treatment

Microneedling works by penetrating sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles 1) create microscopic channels that stimulate the natural production of collagen and 2) deliver radiofrequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.


Recovery Icon Recovery

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 that you avoid makeup for 24 hours, and, of course, it’s always important to use sun protection.

Scars Icon Scars

Microneedling helps remove the visibility of facial scars. No new scarring should come from this treatment.

Pain Icon Pain

This is a non-surgical treatment; however, some minor discomfort may be present during the treatment. Topical anesthesia can be applied, and most patients consider this treatment to be very tolerable. Post-treatment discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.

Cost Icon Cost

The cost of VirtueRF microneedling will depend on the extent of damage and the number of treatments needed to address that area of the body.
