Virtue RF Microneedling Insider Tips

  • Microneedling works by penetrating the skin. RF energy is applied to the skin through the tips of the microneedles, providing targeted energy deep within the skin. 
  • The depth at which the needles penetrate can be adjusted depending on the patient’s unique features and area being treated.
  • Areas appropriate for treatment include the face, neck, decolletage, body, arms, legs, hands, and back.
  • The process has also been known to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and stretch marks.

What Is Virtue RF Microneedling?

Wrinkles form over time as the skin loses two natural components—collagen and elastin—due to aging, sun exposure, and other factors. Sufficient damage to the epidermis can trigger the formation of scars. Microneedling is also known as “collagen-induction therapy” because it is designed to stimulate the body’s own collagen production. Once induced, the skin’s natural healing process can continue working for months to restore a youthful appearance to problem areas. Microneedling boosts collagen levels within the skin and helps your skin to rebuild and regenerate from within. It unlocks the healing potential of your skin. 

Virtue RF microneedling adds powerful radiofrequency energy to the traditional microneedling process. The addition of radiofrequency creates a more powerful result than microneedling on its own. 

Patients from the southeast Michigan area who choose Virtue RF microneedling report experiencing an overall healthy glow to their skin after the treatment, as well as the improved appearance of marks and lines, which decrease in severity and become less noticeable. The healing process can continue to benefit skin long after a microneedling session.

The Virtue RF Microneedling Procedure

Patients will receive treatment in one of our comfortable treatment rooms by a skilled and experienced provider. Safety and patient comfort are two of our priorities with each microneedling treatment. 

Patients experiencing an RF microneedling session in Ann Arbor will first have a topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area. Once the skin has been numbed, the medical aesthetician will apply the device containing the needles to the skin. The needles will penetrate the skin where RF energy is applied through the special gold-coated needles. By directing the RF energy into the skin through the microneedles, the healing energy is deposited deep within the skin, allowing for more dramatic tissue remodeling than a surface-only treatment can provide. One session can last up to half an hour, and multiple sessions separated by weeks may be necessary, depending on the depth and severity of the scars and wrinkles to be treated. For best results, most patients would opt for a series of treatments spaced one month apart.
