Skincare has always been an important aspect of the beauty industry. But it wasn't until recent years that people of all ages started paying attention to the products and ingredients that they were applying to their skin. We like to think of it as the enlightening era. Then people started to incorporate skincare routines, thus formalizing and emphasizing the importance of skincare.
Taking care of your skin goes beyond appearance—after all, skin is the biggest organ of our body. Skincare covers a variety of things, from having a healthy diet to developing a good skincare routine to choosing the right treatments for when you want to give your skin a rejuvenated look in a painless way.
There are many ways to go about skin rejuvenation, but if you wish to achieve natural-looking results with a non-invasive procedure that has minimal downtime, then Virtue RF may be your new BFF.
What's Virtue RF? What areas can it treat?
Virtue RF is a non-invasive radiofrequency microneedling treatment that helps stimulate the skin's natural production of collagen and elastin. This innovative treatment can work on your face, neck, eye-adjacent areas, eye bags, festoons, neck, arms, inner/outer thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.
Minimal Downtime? What does that mean?
There are three different Virtue RF treatments that we’ll discuss in detail below. But first: let’s talk about downtime. Patients receiving the Smart RF treatment (for face and neck) will experience no downtime. None.
Deep RF (for neck-down areas) and Exact RF (for eye area) will have some minimal downtime. Post-treatment, patients may see some swelling, lasting no more than a few days.

Here are the Top 7 Benefits of the Virtue RF Treatment:
- Skin rejuvenation. Virtue RF gives an overall rejuvenated look to your skin by combining microneedling and radiofrequency.
- Correction of sun damage. Virtue RF is perfect to treat sun damage because it tackles hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.
- Tighter, firmer skin. This treatment enhances your skin and makes it appear more youthful by boosting the production of collagen and elastin.
- Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The RF energy gently heats the area being treated, encouraging blood flow, resulting in a skin tightening effect, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Improved skin tone and texture. Virtue RF helps improve skin texture from scarring or acne by stimulating the remodeling of areas that you wish to heal.
- Treatment of active acne. With the combined power of microneedling and radiofrequency, Virtue RF can reduce and clear-up active acne.
- Reduction in stretch marks, acne scarring, and other types of scars. The radiofrequency in Virtue RF helps reduce stretch marks by penetrating the skin's deeper dermis layer to trigger collagen production and skin remodeling, hence reducing stretch marks.
How does Virtue RF Microneedling work?
The Virtue RF technology has sterile needles that penetrate the deeper dermis of the skin. These needles, combined with radio frequency energy, help create microscopic channels that stimulate the natural production of collagen, tightening and lifting the skin.
