Virtue RF Microneedling
Conveniently located to serve Long Island, Middle Island, and Stony Brook
Virtue RF microneedling in Long Island is a highly effective solution for reducing wrinkles and scars. The addition of radiofrequency energy (RF) to microneedles is the latest innovation in this line of treatment. RF microneedling combines the benefits of radiofrequency energy with the natural benefits provided by microneedling.
How Does Virtue RF Microneedling Work?
The Virtue RF Microneedling device is equipped with 36 gold-coated needles. The radiofrequency energy supplies heat to the layers of the skin, which achieves skin tightening.
The special RF needles create microscopic punctures in the skin and deliver radiofrequency energy through these punctures. The radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the dermis and increases the production of beneficial proteins like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
RF microneedling is able to penetrate deeper layers of skin without damaging the upper layers. The Virtue RF system offers multiple handpieces to provide treatment in specific areas. The provider can control the depth of penetration of the microneedles and also the RF energy.
Which Areas Can It Be Used to Treat?
The Virtue RF Microneedling device is quite versatile and can be used to tighten and tone skin on the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and body. It is suited to all skin types.
Most people can see immediate results after the treatment. Results like skin lightening can be noticed immediately after the treatment. It will take four to six weeks for the full results to be visible – this treatment stimulates the body’s collagen production, and it takes time for the body to produce collagen.
RF microneedling provides better results for people who have deep acne scars. This is because the added RF energy breaks down scar tissue better than traditional microneedling. Higher levels of radiofrequency energy can be directed towards scarred skin to provide better results.
The results last for a couple of years, and treatment for acne scars can last longer. The longevity of the results will depend on the precautions taken and the lifestyle followed after treatment.
The session lasts for around 30-45 minutes. Virtue RF Microneedling is painless and completely safe. The treatment provider will apply numbing cream on the area to be treated beforehand.
Microneedles are guided into the skin with the robotic precision delivery (RPD) system. The precise insertion leaves no scope for tearing or trauma to the skin.
The downtime for Virtue RF Microneedling is very low. There are no serious side effects. The skin may appear red for some time after the treatment, but it will subside soon.
You will need to follow the instructions provided during the consultation. Apply sunscreen to protect your skin, and avoid any salon procedures for a week.
Cost of Treatment
The price of Virtue RF Microneedling varies. The cost of the treatment will depend on the depth of the skin issues and the number of sessions required for the treatment.
