Virtue RF Microneedling
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate the skin.
Microneedling uses a small needle to make small channels in the skin. When used in coordination with radiofrequency waves, however, these waves are also released into the channels. This amplifies the amount of damage done to the skin, which ultimately increases the amount of structural proteins produced and yields dramatic results.
Did You Know?
Unlike other treatments, Virtue RF microneedling treatment is able to provide both epidermal resurfacing and deeper dermal remodeling. This allows you to experience more dramatic results that last longer.
Restore a Youthful Appearance
RF microneedling makes the skin firmer, plumper, and smoother, all of which decrease the appearance of common skin issues such as scars or wrinkles. RF microneedling works by creating small, controlled skin injuries in order to stimulate the growth of new skin and the production of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin.
How Your Skin Can Change
- Tighten sagging skin
- Reduce hyperpigmentation and the appearance of scars
- Reduce creases and fine lines

Virture RF Microneedling FAQ’s
How does RF Microneedling work?
Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles
- create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and
- deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
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.
What makes Virtue RF a virtually pain-free treatment?
Virtue RF 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). Typically, your provider will apply numbing cream prior to the treatment depending on the area of concern for added comfort.
What can you expect after a treatment?
One of the key benefits of a Virtue 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 sooth the skin so most will only notice a post-treatment tightening and glow to their skin. Your provider may recommend no make-up for 24hrs and of course, its always important to use sun protection.
How long does a Virtue RF treatment take?
The length of a treatment depends on the area being treated and the protocol being followed. Typically, a full face treatment will take 20 minutes.
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. It is important to talk to your provider about any concerns you might have before your Virtue RF treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most providers will recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended.
What is VirtueRF’s post treatment?
Only the Virtue RF pairs every treatment with the most innovative sheet mask technology available – Microcurrent Dual Face Mask . The unique dual-mask system uses patented Tissue X™ microcurrent technology to deliver skin soothing ingredients deeper into the skin. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, it eliminates redness and optimizes the post-RF microneedling healing.
The wet mask Immediately soothes the skin with:
- Sodium Hyaluronate
- Aloe Vera Extract
The dry mask is woven with scientifically proven, Tissue X™ technology uses differences in ions to generate a microcurrent without the use of separate devices, electricity or metals.
What to Expect
- You will be able to return home within the same day
- No downtime
- Avoid makeup for 24 hours
- May experience a glow and tightening after treatment
- Minimize sun exposure
By creating tiny skin injuries, RF Microneedling stimulates the body’s production of structural proteins collagen and elastin. These proteins ultimately help to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin easily and effectively. Despite the dramatic effect, RF Microneedling has no downtime.
