Looking for the ultimate skin-tightening treatment?
Our Virtue RF Microneedling Platform is the holy grail treatment for stimulating collagen production and transforming your skin. And the best part? There’s virtually no pain, no downtime, and the results are immediate.
RF (short for radio-frequency) Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that eliminates skin laxity and crepiness, fine lines and deep wrinkles, and unwanted scarring.
What’s the process like?
The treatment involves creating controlled micro-injuries in the dermis layer of the skin, which jump-starts your body’s natural healing response and creates collagen and elastin. The addition of radio-frequency energy increases intentional injury to the dermis, and in turn accelerates the rate of collagen production and skin tightening!
Additionally, the insulated needles allow us to keep a specific depth for the RF energy, which limits side effects. RF energy also acts as a form of cauterization, which results in minimal bleeding, reduced redness, and virtually zero social down-time.
So what’s the difference between Microneedling with PRP and RF Microneedling?
Platelets release growth factors, which do various functions in the body. The addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in the skin allows us to apply growth factors that increase blood flow to the skin, boost collagen and elastin production, and quickens healing time. Results of micro-injection studies comparing PRP and Saline show that the addition of PRP can nearly double collagen production!
On the other hand, RF energy enables us to create controlled heat deep in the skin. This heat increases the amount of injury we can do to the tissue, creating a more robust healing response and signaling the body to produce more collagen and elastin. RF energy allows us to get even more skin tightening than microneedling alone.
Why not both?
Did you know we can also add PRP to an RF microneedling treatment? RF Microneedling opens up micro-channels within the skin that we can apply PRP. This will allow the growth factors to reach the deep dermis level of your skin, meaning you can maximize your collagen production and achieve firmer, rejuvenated skin.
