Virtue RF Microneedling is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF). This procedure leads to skin tightening without the social downtime associated with more invasive treatments. Virtue also offers versatile treatments using 3 different handpieces that can tackle a wide variety of skin conditions such as wrinkles, enlarged pores, scars and uneven texture. It is an advanced way to restore a healthier, more youthful complexion.
What Does RF Microneedling Treat?
- Skin laxity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven texture
- Neck laxity
- Loose skin
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Skin dimpling
- Under eye bags
- Malar festoons
- Neck bands
- Submental fat (double chin)
During the aging process, our skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to the formation of wrinkles and skin laxity. Microneedling uses small needles to penetrate the skin, which signals our body to begin the healing cascade and form new collagen. The addition of radiofrequency results in a more powerful treatment because it provides targeted heat energy that passes through the needles deep into the skin. We also set the depth to which the needles penetrate and, thus, we can treat the skin at multiple levels, leading to significant skin tightening. The results after Virtue RF microneedling treatments are firmer, plumper, more glowing skin.
Virtue RF microneedling offers 3 different handpieces and settings to target specific areas and concerns. The Smart handpiece is equipped with 36 needles and designed to treat the face, neck, decollete and hands. The Deep handpiece also contains 36 needles but is much larger and can be programmed to penetrate deeper which is great for areas on the body such as the abdomen, legs and arms. The Exact handpiece has a single needle for precise treatments of smaller areas including the lower eyelids, malar festoons, jawline and neck bands.
What Our Patients Say
Doctor Rothaus was really great! I did the cool peel treatment and it made a great difference on my skin for the better. The treatment didn’t hurt at all and a little bit of redness and dry skin for the next day but after that I was fine. When I went for my Follow up we took before and after pictures and I noticed a big change after one treatment, I would highly recommend this treatment. – C. R.
Joleen was sooo sweet! She is a complete expert and knows your concerns and needs. Such a great experience, definitely will come back!
RF microneedling has very little downtime after the procedure. If you have more sensitive skin, you may appear red for up to three days after the treatment. Our recommendation is to limit sun exposure and apply makeup after 24 hours after the procedure.
Patients who receive Exact RF microneedling for the under eye area may have downtime for up to 5-7 days. This is due to the sensitivity of the lower eyelids. It is normal to expect redness, swelling and some bruising in this area.
The price depends on what area is being treated and what setting we use for your specific area of concern.
Smart RF cost ranges from $1,200 to $1,500+
Deep RF cost ranges from $1,200 to $1,900+
Exact RF cost ranges from $600 to $1,000+
Our skin rejuvenation treatment specialists recommend scheduling appointments every 4-6 weeks for a series of 3 treatments to see the maximum results. The procedures can then be spaced out every 3-4 months to follow a maintenance schedule, depending on your skin goals. These clinical skincare treatment plans will also be customized to fit your individual needs and sensitivity to RF microneedling.

When Will I See Results after RF Microneedling?
Although you may notice improvements to your skin several days after RF microneedling, it takes around 4-6 weeks to see the final result. This is because collagen production begins around 10 days after the treatment, and the skin continues to heal and tighten for several weeks after that.
How Should I Prepare for my RF Microneedling Appointment?
We recommend patients stop using products that contain active ingredients such as vitamin C and retinol as well as exfoliants including salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, BHA and AHA.
What Can I Expect during my RF Microneedling Appointment?
Each RF microneedling appointment begins with a thorough consultation with your provider, where all available options are discussed. You will work together to decide what areas to treat and what procedure is best to achieve the result for which you are looking. Your provider will then apply topical numbing cream for 45 minutes-1 hour. This helps to prevent any discomfort you may feel during the procedure. Throughout the treatment, we use a Zimmer cooling fan which helps to keep the skin at a cooler temperature and makes the treatment more comfortable. The procedure itself takes around 30-45 minutes, depending on how many areas we treat. After the treatment we will apply a microcurrent mask that contains anti-inflammatory properties such as aloe vera extract, caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizing ingredients. This helps to calm down the skin and eliminate redness while also optimizing the healing after RF microneedling.
What Do I Need to Know after my RF Microneedling Procedure?
You can expect the skin to look red for 24-72 hours, depending on how intense of a treatment you received. It looks similar to having a sunburn, which subsides over the next several days with proper aftercare. We send each patient home with our post-procedure skincare system that helps the healing process and enhances the results.
