Virtue RF Microneedling

Combining the power of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Virtue RF is a versatile, minimally-invasive treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production to minimize pores, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and much more.

Wish you had smooth and supple skin? Are you self-conscious of acne scars, blemishes, uneven skin tone, or stretch marks?

Virtue RF may be the right med spa treatment for you! Next, we’ll explore how it works and what you can expect during and after treatment.

How Does Virtue RF Microneedling Work?

Virtue RF works similarly to traditional microneedling treatments. By penetrating deep beyond the top layer of the skin, Virtue’s microneedles stimulate collagen and elastin production.

But that’s not all. The microneedles simultaneously open up channels within the dermis layer to transfer radiofrequency energy, enhancing the production and flow of collagen and elastin. The radio frequency energy travels deep within the dermis layer to target and reduce scars, tighten skin, and create a healthier, glowing complexion.

Does Virtue RF Work on All Skin Types?

Yes! Virtue RF can yield beautiful, long-lasting results for patients of all ages, skin types, and skin tones.

So, whether you struggle with fine lines and wrinkles, acne and scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, loose skin, or stretch marks, you can benefit from Virtue RF microneedling.

Because Virtue RF’s system utilizes multiple microneedling handpieces, you can target facial skin and problem areas across your body.

Is Virtue RF Painful? How Long Does Treatment Last?

Virtue RF is minimally invasive and pain-free and is widely considered one of the most comfortable microneedling treatments in the market today.

Insertions of the microneedles are precise, minimizing tearing, trauma, and scratching. Your provider will most likely apply an anesthetic numbing cream before treatment goes underway to help soothe the area. You may experience light pressure while we apply the handpiece and emit heat from it.

The entire treatment process, including skin preparation and post-treatment, can take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. The microneedling process itself lasts around 20 minutes. After treatment, patients wear a moisturizing, anti-inflammatory Microcurrent Dual Face Mask to reduce redness and promote healing.

What Can You Expect After Treatment?

Downtime after Virtue RF treatment is minimal, meaning you can resume work and normal activity right after treatment. You may experience some skin redness for the first few hours after treatment.

Wearing sunscreen and avoiding exfoliating skin washes and treatments for the first 24 hours post-treatment can also reduce redness. It’s also recommended that patients avoid wearing makeup soon after and at least a day after treatment.

Your skin may feel smoother soon after treatment. It takes anywhere from four to six weeks for noticeably full results to show. For best results, we recommend a series of three to four treatments over the course of several months.

CoolPeel

Wish you could shed years off your skin and radiate with a youthful glow? CoolPeel is a new, non-invasive CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment that is helping patients take control over age spots, sun damage, acne scars, loose skin, and the effects of aging.

What makes CoolPeel so innovative? Let’s take a closer look!

How Does CoolPeel Work?

Utilizing the SmartXide Tetra CO2 laser, CoolPeel removes the damaged upper layer of the skin. It then delivers short pulses of laser energy, which stimulates collagen production.

Unlike other CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments, CoolPeel does not produce heat throughout the procedure, making it a more comfortable treatment option that yields a faster healing period.

Does CoolPeel Work on All Skin Types?

CoolPeel is most effective on skin affected by sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

Laser skin resurfacing treatment can potentially cause discoloration. Any patient wishing to undergo CoolPeel, or any other type of laser skin resurfacing treatment, should consult with a doctor first and go over their medical history. There may be other medical spa treatments that are more effective with your skin type and can help you achieve a younger and healthier complexion.

Is CoolPeel Painful? How Long Does Treatment Last?

A facial CoolPeel treatment typically lasts anywhere from five to 20 minutes. You can expect a longer treatment time if you’re targeting areas like the neck or chest.

Treatment is not painful. It is generally considered one of the more comfortable laser skin resurfacing treatments available.

What Can You Expect After Treatment?

It takes around 10 days for CoolPeel to show noticeable results. The treatment will gradually take full effect over the course of a few months as your skin produces more collagen.

Downtime after CoolPeel is minimal. You can resume work and normal day-to-day activities. You may experience mild redness within the first 24 hours after treatment ‒ but it is no worse than a slight sunburn. Some dryness may occur.

You can minimize redness and irritation by drinking lots of water and avoiding sunlight, face coverings, makeup, perfume, as well as topical ointments and creams. You should also minimize contact with bleach products in the first few days after treatment. Talk to your provider about which skin lotions you should use to keep your skin hydrated following treatment.
