In the last few years Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF) has become one of the most popular treatments in the aesthetic industry as it can produce beautiful results without downtime. At Elite Aesthetics we pride ourselves in offering the latest, most effective technology and have found that in VirtueRF Microneedling by Cartessa. VirtueRF Microneedling is an FDA-cleared device, and is the world’s first RF Microneedling product that goes beyond reducing fine lines and wrinkles for your most beautiful skin. This treatment is minimally invasive and simulates the natural production of collagen to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring (acne scarring/stretchmarks) on the face, neck, hands and body. Results can be seen in as little as one office visit, with best results seen after three treatments, and will improve over time.
VirtueRF offers versatile treatments to address your unique concerns and achieve your desired outcomes. A comfortable and sophisticated aesthetic experience that delivers immediate results that reproduce over time, without your standard social down-time. VirtueRF’s treatment experience is completed with an exclusive Microcurrent Dual Mask – an award-winning K-Beauty mask created by Dr. Franz. This two mask system soothes skin and eliminates redness, with the Microcurrent technology helping to deliver ingredients deeper into the skin for maximum results.
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 particularly effective at smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, firming, tightening, and toning the skin. VirtueRF can also be used to soften the appearance of scars such as those from acne or stretch marks. It is important to talk to your provider about any concerns you might have before your Virtue RF treatment.
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.
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 soothe 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, it's always important to use sun protection.
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 to a year is recommended.
A benefit of RF Microneedling is that the collagen you build is your own so results are natural and will continue to improve with time. It can take up to 4-6 weeks until some benefits are apparent with full results taking 3-6 months after your last session.
