Virtue RF is the most advanced device available for radiofrequency microneedling, offering a variety of treatments for total skin rejuvenation. It uses a combination of RF energy and small needles to stimulate collagen production for skin tightening and smoothing benefits. Due to the 3 handpiece options, we have the capability of treating many different body areas such as the face, neck, abdomen and lower eyelids.

How Does Virtue RF Work?

Virtue RF is an advanced aesthetic procedure that treats a wide array of skin conditions and is safe for all skin tones. Microneedling is a common treatment that uses fine needles to penetrate the skin, triggering the healing cascade within the body and the formation of collagen and elastin. This ultimately leads to smoother skin, tighter pores and improved texture. Virtue RF enhances the benefits from microneedling by delivering radiofrequency energy at various depths within the skin, resulting in tighter, more youthful-looking skin.

Virtue RF is equipped with 3 different handpieces, allowing us to customize treatments depending on the concern and body area.

  • The Smart tip contains 36 needles and is used for treatment of the face, neck and décollété to help with skin resurfacing, submental skin laxity or fat, and wrinkles.
  • The Deep tip also contains 36 needles, but is much larger and can penetrate even deeper. This makes it an excellent choice for body areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms and glutes to help with cellulite, stretch marks, skin tightening and toning.
  • The Exact tip is a single needle that we use to precisely treat smaller areas including malar festoons, under eye bags and neck bands. We use this as our non-surgical option for eyelid puffiness and excess skin.

Combination Treatments With Virtue RF

Virtue RF is a versatile and effective treatment that we often combine with other devices to maximize results.

Virtue RF + CoolPeel

One of our most popular combination treatments! We first treat the area with Virtue RF microneedling to stimulate collagen production and tighten deep within the skin. Then we use the CoolPeel laser to resurface the top layer of the skin which improves the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation and uneven texture. We offer this combo for the face, neck and décollété resulting in a smoother, brighter appearance.

Virtue RF + Physiq

A non-invasive body sculpting option with little to no downtime. Virtue RF can help improve the appearance of crepey skin, minor postpartum skin laxity, stretch marks and cellulite. We then use Physiq to eliminate unwanted body fat and tone muscle. Physiq is a non-invasive body contouring device that targets fat and muscle during a single treatment session and can be used for the abdomen, thighs, arms and glutes. With this combination, we can effectively treat multiple different tissue layers for maximum benefit.

Virtue RF + Chrome Laser

Get rid of brown spots, fine lines and skin laxity all in one treatment. We start by treating the area with our Chrome laser which uses a 1064 wavelength to get rid of hyperpigmentation and fine lines. We can treat individual brown spots or an entire area for more diffuse sun damage. Then Virtue RF is used to restore a smoother texture to the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, laxity and enlarged pores for a more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many Virtue RF Treatments Will I Need?

We recommend a series of 3 Virtue RF treatments, every 4 weeks for maximum results.

Is Virtue RF Painful?

Virtue RF is a well-tolerated procedure with patients experiencing minimal to no pain since we numb the treatment area. Virtue RF also has the capability of sub-pulsing, which breaks up the energy into many pulses so patients are more comfortable throughout the treatment.

When Will I See Results from Virtue RF?

Patients start to see benefits soon after the procedure, but the maximum result is seen 4-6 weeks after a Virtue RF treatment series.

Is There Any Downtime After Virtue RF?

Virtue RF has minimal to no downtime. Most patients can expect to be pink for 24-48 hours after treatment. For more sensitive skin types, this can take up to 72 hours to go away. Exact RF treatments around the eyes can lead to some swelling because this area is very sensitive. This can last for 24-72 hours, depending on the intensity of treatment.

How Much Does Virtue RF Cost?

Virtue RF price ranges based on how many areas are being treated. Some common starting prices include: Lower eyelids: $750, Full face: $1,200, Face & neck: $1,500, Abdomen: $1,200-1,500+

How is Virtue RF Different from Morpheus?

Virtue RF and Morpheus8 are both radiofrequency microneedling devices. The difference lies in their ability to customize treatments and method of energy delivery. Virtue RF has the capability for completely customizable procedures based on each patient's individual goals. We can set the depth at which the energy is delivered to precisely treat specific body areas. It also has the ability of sub-pulsing the energy, which breaks up the radiofrequency into many pulses, allowing for more comfortable treatments. Virtue RF is the only device to offer a post-procedure microcurrent face mask, which optimizes results and reduces redness instantly. Compared to Morpheus8, Virtue RF can provide effective treatments for the face to the body with no downtime.

Who Is a Candidate for Virtue RF?

Candidates for Virtue RF are those seeking a non-invasive skin tightening and resurfacing option. Patients who have enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and uneven texture are great candidates for Virtue RF. This treatment is safe for all skin types and tones.

What Can I Expect During a Virtue RF Procedure?

Every Virtue RF appointment begins with a thorough consultation with your provider. You will discuss your main skin concerns and can explore all options and medspa treatments available to you. We then cleanse the skin and apply a topical numbing agent to properly anesthetize the area so you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Once the skin is numb, we begin the treatment and choose settings based on your skin condition, concern and desired outcome. We treat the skin 2-3 times per area going from deeper to more superficial. The entire procedure takes around 30-45 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated. A microcurrent mask is then applied to the skin, which contains anti-inflammatory properties such as aloe vera extract, caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizing ingredients. This helps to calm down the skin and eliminate redness while also optimizing the healing process after RF microneedling.
