Experience Next-Level Facial Rejuvenation with the Combined Treatment of Radiofrequency and Microneedling 

What is VirtueRF Treatment? 

VirtueRF is an advanced skin microneedling device from Cartessa Aesthetics. It’s one of the best FDA-cleared RF microneedling systems that provides a comfortable facial rejuvenation experience and delivers stunning results. 

This minimally invasive treatment elevates the traditional microneedling procedure with the addition of RF energy. During a Virtue RF microneedling treatment, the provider will create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. These microscopic channels will trigger the body’s wound-healing response and increase collagen production in the area. 

The radiofrequency energy will simultaneously heat the dermis as the micro-needles pierce the skin, which can further create more collagen to tighten skin and improve its overall texture and appearance. 

Common Skin Concerns That VirtueRF Can Treat

The VirtueRF microneedling platform has several different handpieces with sterile microneedles that offers versatility in treating specific skin problems. Here are some of the common issues that VirtueRF can help treat: 

  • Wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Sagging skin 
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Dull complexion
  • Stretch marks 
  • Acne scars 
  • Hyperpigmentation

FAQs About VirtueRF Microneedling

Q: What does the procedure for Virtue RF microneedling look like?

A: During the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to reduce your discomfort. The Virtue RF handpiece will be moved across your face and you’ll feel the microneedles slowly puncturing the skin. Once the needles are in the skin, they will emit RF energy from their tips to the dermis. You may feel light pressure from the device but there’s virtually no pain during the treatment.

Q: What happens after the Virtue RF microneedling treatment?

A: The Virtue RF is typically paired with the Microcurrent Dual Face Mask by Franz Skincare. This award-winning sheet mask is rich in antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamins that help moisturize and soothe the skin after the procedure. It can also help reduce swelling and redness after the RF microneedling treatment.

Q: How soon can you see results from Virtue RF microneedling? 

A: The treatment can provide immediate results and make your skin look smoother and brighter within hours of your treatment. However, since the treatment encourages collagen and elastin production, you can expect to see dramatic improvements within 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure.

Q: How long do the results of Virtue RF last? 

A: After your initial series of treatments, your results can last for about 6 months. You can consult with our doctor about getting follow-up procedures every 4 to 6 months to maintain optimal results.

Q: Can you combine Virtue RF with other treatments? 

A: We can recommend combination treatments after a careful assessment of your skin condition and personal goals. Based on your requirements, we can help you achieve your desired results by combining Virtue RF with other treatments like dermal fillers, Hydrafacial, fractional laser, and Botox.
