VirtueRF Microneedling is today’s most advanced machine that combines radio-frequency and microneedling, proven to be the non-invasive option to visibly improve skin tone, tighten skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is FDA-cleared to non-surgically rejuvenate the skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing process and initiating the production of new collagen within the tissue. When the microneedle tip of the VirtueRF system perforates the superficial layer of skin, radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the needles to heat the deeper tissue.
That said, the skin reacts by working to repair the tissue through the formation of new elastin and collagen fibers, which gradually give the skin a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Immediately following treatment, the skin quickly absorbs specialized serums that can further improve skin quality. In experienced hands, this potent combination can effectively treat a range of concerns, including uneven skin texture, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, acne scars, and stretch marks.
What Skincare Effects Does VirtueRF Microneedling Offer?
The VirtueRF Microneedling’s conceptual framework has been around for nearly five decades, but only in the last few years has technology caught up. Additionally, microneedling RF treatment can deliver anti-aging benefits without pain – and this news is spreading like wildfire.
The secret is ultrafine needles that puncture the skin to make very tiny wounds. When the skin heals from the wounds, the body’s collagen production soars, resulting in taut skin. Surface scarring is eliminated, and fine wrinkles are softened if not erased.
How Does VirtueRF Work?
VirtueRF is different from the provider’s ability to fully customize the treatment with multiple settings, handpieces, and depths. From the completely comfortable treatment to the most innovative soothing sheet mask technology, VirtueRF offers superior results and an unrivaled experience.
Microneedling works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles 1) create microscopic channels that stimulate the natural production of collagen and 2) deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote the remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin.
What Benefits Do VirtueRF Microneedling Provide?
Non-surgical, minimally invasive VirtueRF microneedling can provide customized therapy for various skin concerns with little to no downtime following treatment. The depth and energy frequency can be adjusted to deliver customized treatment based on each patient’s unique needs.
For the ideal candidates, VirtueRF microneedling can achieve the following skin benefits:

What Happens During An RF Microneedling Treatment?
Most RF microneedling treatment sessions take 30–45 minutes. Here’s what to expect:
- The skin will be cleansed by the provider following the application of a topical numbing cream to help mitigate pain.
- Once the target area is sufficiently numb, they’ll begin pressing the handheld device into the skin, methodically stamping it across the entire treatment area.
- As the microneedles puncture the skin and penetrate the dermis, they emit RF energy as heat. The patient may feel a warm, prickling sensation that can be uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t be painful.
- After the treatment is complete, the provider may apply a calming mask, serum, or balm to the skin.

Moreover, the insertion of the needles is so exact that there is no tearing or trauma done to the skin. Before the Virtue RF treatment begins, the provider will apply a numbing cream that contributes to this virtually painless treatment.
What Are The Possible Side Effects Of VirtueRF Microneedling?
VirtueRF microneedling isn’t without risk, like all cosmetic procedures. However, the most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. The patient may also see redness for a few days.

- Pregnant women
- Those with certain skin diseases, such as psoriasis or eczema
- Those who have open wounds
- People who have had radiation therapy recently
- Those who have a history of skin scars
How Long Does RF Microneedling Recovery Take?
Most patients have little to no downtime, but there might be pinpoint bleeding, flushing, and mild swelling immediately afterward. These side effects are an expected inflammatory response to the micro-injuries inflicted on the skin, and they should resolve in 24–48 hours.
Following treatment, the patient should be able to resume daily activities within 24 hours. The skin will likely appear pinkish for up to two days. The immediate results only get better, with an additional gradual improvement unveiling the best look and feel within a few weeks.
Correspondingly, the skin continues to improve for several months, collagen and elastin production continue, and the results can last as long as 5 years. However, a patient can likely benefit from occasional maintenance treatments.
