The aesthetics world has been abuzz for some time about the benefits of radiofrequency and its ability to ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin, and provide a more even skin tone. Now, Illuminate Plastic Surgery brings you the next evolution of RF technology in the form of VirtueRF Microneedling. This radiofrequency system features all the aforementioned benefits plus the added power of microneedling, giving you the results you want with little to no downtime.
VirtueRF Microneedling is a revolutionary platform that offers the greatest RF microneedling versatilily on the market. The smart handpiece allows us to offer treatment with the robotic precision of 36 gold-coated needles. Featuring a variety of pulse modes, treatment speeds, and even red and blue LED for light therapy, this treatment option can accommodate virtually all skin types. The VirtueRF system can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, sagging skin and other texture and hyperpigmentation issues. Treatment is done carefully to help keep you comfortable and give you the results you’re looking for.
The VirtueRF Microneedling experience is like no other. The treatment starts with the application of numbing cream to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Afterward, a handpiece is applied over the targeted area, be it the skin on the face, hands, neck, or elsewhere on the body. Once the process is complete, a special microcurrent mask is applied, speeding up the healing process and resulting in effectively no downtime post-procedure. You can have this FDA-cleared treatment in the morning or on your lunch break and then continue on with your day!
Following your VirtueRF Microneedling treatment, your skin may feel tighter and firmer. Some results can be seen in a couple of weeks. You can expect your skin to continue to improve over the next few months, as collagen production continues to ramp up and produce more resilience and suppleness in your skin. Though this procedure is safe, some mild side effects can be experienced. In some cases, you may notice redness and swelling around the treated site. Your face may also feel warm as if you have a sunburn. These side effects should subside shortly after your visit.
VirtueRF Microneedling is an excellent choice for sagging skin as the treatment stimulates the production of collagen. While some treatment effects can be experienced shortly after your session, the true, rejuvenating benefits of treatment are seen further down the line. Results are long-lasting and radiant.
As with most no-downtime procedures, multiple treatments may be required to achieve the best results. With that said, most patients begin to notice an improvement in the appearance of their skin within a couple of weeks following their first session.* As you continue with your sessions, the effects will become more and more dramatic.*
The cost of VirtueRF Microneedling varies based on your specific area of concern and the number of treatments needed to achieve maximal results. If you would like to consider some easy payment options, we can recommend services like CareCredit or Alphaeon that many of our patients use to spread out their treatment payments over time. Many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest. Schedule your appointment in Palo Alto, CA today to learn more.
