What Is Virtue RF?
Fox Vein & Laser Experts is no stranger to the miraculous work that microneedling provides our patients. As a leader in the world of aesthetics, we are more excited than ever to introduce the latest and greatest in micro-needling technology from our friends at Cartesian Aesthetics: Virtue RF!
Virtue RF is the newest generation in radiofrequency micro-needling. This FDA-cleared, minimally invasive treatment helps to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. It can be used on the face, neck, hands, and really anywhere on the body. RF micro-needling is also known for its ability to improve scars and acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, minimize the appearance of pores, and smooth and brighten the skin — but Virtue RF doesn’t stop there! Virtue RF also works simultaneously to tighten the skin while addressing those lines and wrinkles, unwanted scars, and improving the tone and texture of the skin.
How does RF Micro-Needling Accomplish All of This?
It’s a simple process: tiny, sterile needles are applied deep into the dermis of the skin, which is the layer that lies under the epidermis and is the thickest layer of the skin. These needles work to create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate natural collagen production and deliver radio-frequency heat energy that promotes remodeling of collagen and elastin to both tighten and lift the skin.
Your Virtue RF experience also includes a first in market electro current post-treatment mask to ensure a recovery response, unlike any other micro-needling experience. The mask calms and soothes the skin so there is no visible evidence that you even had a micro-needling treatment, to begin with. You won’t see any redness — just beautiful, bright, glowing skin.
Length of RF Micro-needling Treatment
The length of the treatment is no more than about 20 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated. There is absolutely no downtime either. In fact, you will be able to see results immediately, and they only get better with time. Experts say that after about 4-6 weeks, the full benefits will become apparent. You will be in true filter-free Selfie mode following your Virtue RF treatment with our aesthetic team! No need to call out of work, cancel lunch or dinner plans, or worry about how you look when you leave our office. After your Virtue RF treatment, you will be able to resume your day as normal!
Virtue RF is Stronger Than its Predecessor, Vivace
Although the Virtue RF is stronger than its predecessor, Vivace, it provides a much more comfortable patient experience, with a noticeable difference in how the needles feel as they penetrate the skin. This is because of Virtue RF’s precise robotic motor, an exclusive robotic precision delivery (RPD) system, that is unmatched to comparative devices in the market. The insertion of the needles is so exact that there is no tearing or trauma done to the skin. Unfortunately, this can be the case with other microneedling pens or systems that may scratch the skin and cause bleeding and/or pain. Before your Virtue RF treatment begins, the aesthetician will apply a numbing cream that also contributes to this virtually painless treatment.
It is important to note that skin should be kept product-free for at least 24 hours following a micro-needling treatment. This means no make-up, no products that contain chemicals or fragrance, no exfoliants, and no products with glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids. Anything that could potentially aggravate the skin should be avoided. Sweating is also to be avoided, so no sauna visits or intense workouts right after a treatment. Micro-needling opens the pores, making your skin much more susceptible to sun damage, so stay out of the sun if you can. If the sunshine can’t be avoided, make sure to consistently wear plenty of sunscreen for at least two weeks following the treatment. You should always wear sunscreen as it is, but it’s even more important after experiencing micro-needling.
Are you a good candidate for Virtue RF?
Of course, you are! This top-of-the-line micro-needling technology is appropriate for anyone looking to show a little extra love to their skin. The device can be used as a preventative measure for those who are lucky enough to still boast youthful skin and want to keep it that way. It can also be used as a corrective treatment for patients who do show signs of aging and other skin ailments.
Virtue RF can be used on both light and dark skin tones, on men and women, and as we mentioned, can be used just about anywhere on the body, although most commonly done on the face and neck. The Virtue RF system also has the capability to hold multiple handpieces to enhance the treatment in specific areas even further. If you have any questions or hesitations regarding your Virtue RF microneedling treatment, our team is happy to discuss the treatment with you at length and address all of your concerns.
