WHAT IS VIRTUE RF MICRONEEDLING?
Virtue RF is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The minimally invasive treatment can help make your skin firmer, tighter, and smoother.
Virtue RF has fine needles that create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Virtue RF Microneedling is THE most comfortable RF Microneedling treatment available!
Ariya Aesthetics is the first medical spa in the greater Boston area to offer this treatment, and one of the first 50 in the country!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VIRTUE RF MICRONEEDLING?
HOW DOES VIRTUE RF WORK?
RF Microneedling with Virtue RF is a minimally invasive treatment that alleviates fine lines and wrinkles, evens out skin color, minimizes pore size, and provides a glowing complexion and leaves you with smoother and healthier-looking skin. RF micro-needling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction.
Virtue RF is the successor to the Vivace® Microneedle RF device, and is the newest generation of radiofrequency microneedling and is FDA-cleared.
WHAT TYPE OF SKIN TYPES AND CONDITIONS IS IT GOOD FOR?
Virtue RF microneedling can benefit all skin types and tones. Anyone desiring skin resurfacing with minimal to no downtime is a good candidate for a series of Virtue RF treatments.
People with aging skin should see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, and those with dull skin will see it brighten. Studies show both microneedling and radiofrequency to be effective treatments for stubborn acne scars also.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL TREATMENT LIKE?
We will give you a list of pre-procedure recommendations, like avoiding exfoliating agents and other astringents for at least 24 hours beforehand.
On the day of the treatment, we will start by applying a topical anesthetic numbing cream.
Once your skin is numb, we will move the Virtue handpiece over your face. A robotic micromotor gently pushes the needles into the skin. Once they are in your skin, the insulated needles emit heat from their tips into the dermis. You will probably feel light pressure but overall, virtually no pain during the treatment. Treatments on the face usually last around 45 minutes.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER A TREATMENT?
Only the Virtue RF pairs every treatment with the most innovative sheet mask technology available – the Microcurrent Dual Face Mask system by Franz Skincare. This two mask system soothes skin and eliminates redness. This award-winning Dr. Franz mask utilizes iontophoresis to deliver nutrient-rich ingredients directly into the skin. Unlike other Iontophoresis skincare treatments in the market, the TissueX technology doesn’t require electricity or battery power to generate microcurrents.
HOW SOON CAN YOU SEE RESULTS?
Your skin may look smoother and brighter within hours of your treatment, but significant results rely on your body’s natural production of collagen, which takes several weeks. Your skin tone, texture, and overall appearance will continue to improve for up to six weeks with each treatment.
HOW LONG DO RESULTS FROM VIRTUE RF LAST?
After a series of treatments, results should last about six months. Follow-up treatments every four to six months are recommended to maintain your results.
WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR VIRTUE RF?
Virtue RF is a truly ageless procedure. It is used as a preventative and a corrective treatment for patients with light to dark skin types of all ages.
CAN YOU DO COMBINATION TREATMENTS?
Best results are obtained after careful assessment and evaluation of each individual person. We offer comprehensive face and body assessments and individualize each treatment plan accordingly. Best results with Virtue RF are obtained in conjuction with other treatment modalities such as Botox, dermal fillers, Hydrafacial, Fractional Laser, Coolsculpting, Cooltone and Velashape treatments.
