Virtue (Microneedling with Radio Frequency)

We’re proud to offer the Virtue system to reduce fine lines/wrinkles, decrease pore size, and correct age-related skin laxity. The Virtue device combines customizable microneedling with RF energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the dermis, providing a more smooth and more youthful appearance from the inside out. We recommend a series of 3-5 sessions for best results, topical lidocaine cream is utilized to numb the skin and make this a comfortable 30-45 min procedure. For the absolute best results Virtue RF can be combined with the CoolPeel fractional CO2 laser for a comprehensive all in one trearment which treats all skin layers at the same visit.

How It Works

Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles

  1. Create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and
  2. Deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
