RF Microneedling Q & A
How does RF Microneedling work?
Microneedling works by applying 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 radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
What makes VirtueRF a virtually pain-free 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). Numbing cream may be applied prior to the treatment for added comfort depending on the area of concern. Another unique feature exclusive to VirtueRF is the ability to break down the RF energy into small sub-units so that there is no trade-off between optimal energy levels and comfort.
How long does a VirtueRF treatment take?
The length of a treatment depends on the area being treated, the handpiece being utilized, and the protocol being followed. Typically, a full face treatment will take 20 minutes.
What can you expect after a treatment?
A SmartRF treatment has 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. A DeepRF and ExactRF treatment should have little downtime however you may experience swelling, erythema and light peeling along the treatment area. Micro-scabs may appear after a DeepRF procedure which is a natural response during the healing process.
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. For best results, completing a series of treatments is highly recommended.
Who is the right candidate for VirtuRF?
VirtureRF is a truly ageless procedure. It is used as a preventative and corrective treatment for patients with light to dark skin types.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of three to five treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for areas like full face, décolleté, and body. More precise applications with the handpiece may need fewer treatments. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended.
