Park Slope Dermatology is one of the first dermatology offices in the Brooklyn and greater NYC area to offer this minimally-invasive treatment that helps stimulate the natural production of collagen. Neck and hands are often ignored in aesthetic treatments. VIRTUE RF works everywhere on the body – face, neck, decolletage, hands, and body.
WHAT IS VIRTUE RF MICRONEEDLING?
The VIRTUE RF is a non-invasive RF Microneedling procedure effective for reducing wrinkles, smoothing and tightening the skin.
Virtue RF is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The minimally invasive treatment can help make your skin firmer, tighter, and smoother.
Virtue RF has fine needles that create tiny punctures in the epidermis or top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Virtue RF Microneedling is THE most comfortable RF Microneedling treatment available!
What does it feel like?
A VIRTUE RF treatment is virtually painless and made even more comfortable as you will be numbed with a topical anesthetic for 30-45 minutes prior to your treatment. Bony areas of the face and body might feel a bit of pressure from the handpiece; if there is any other type of discomfort during treatment, we will adjust the settings to keep you as comfortable as possible. You may have some pinpoint bleeding, swelling, and redness, but this dissipates within an hour or two. In our medi-spa, you are pampered as you are relaxed, with available amenities such as television, refreshments, warm towels, etc.
Is there any downtime?
VIRTUE RF is a non-invasive treatment and there is virtually no downtime. You may be slightly red or warm immediately following the treatment; this sensation dissipates within a few hours. We apply a therapeutic, colloidal facemask which begins to decrease redness and warmth immediately.
Does it work and when will I see results?
YES! While results are often immediate, there is an improvement over a three-month period as the process of collagen regeneration increases over time. And, depending on your condition and skin type, the dermatologist will discuss necessity for further treatments for best results.
How Does Virtue RF Microneedling Work?
The new Microneedling device delivers radio-frequency energy as heat to the lower dermal layer of skin, via tiny gold needles. The gold needles and heat create precise micro-damage that jump-starts your body’s regenerative process. The body’s natural regenerative healing response actually remodels your skin’s structural proteins, including collagen and elastin, as well as stimulates the production of more proteins. Post Virtue RF treatment, your skin actually becomes firmer, plumper, and smoother. Virtue RF Microneedling also happens to be one of the best options for acne scarring, stretch marks, and scars from surgery and/or accidents.
