Virtue RF

The Virtue RF is a radiofrequency (RF) skin device that delivers radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths in the skin to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin which then tightens, firm and lifts the skin. The Virtue RF device creates microscopic channels deep within the dermis (skin) to stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin
The Virtue RF can be used as a preventive and corrective skin treatment. It is safe on all skin types and safe to treat on the face and the body. It is used to improve fine lines and wrinkles, all types of scars including traumatic, surgical and acne scars, white stretch marks, skin laxity, skin rejuvenation and for treating some skin pigmentation

Virtue RF technology

Virtue RF breaks up the energy with sub-pulses which makes it more tolerable and more pleasant than other RF technology. The Sub-Pulse Technology helps improve patient comfort without losing energy delivered to the skin.
The Virtue RF device has 3 handpieces customized to treat the various areas of the face and body with precise depths and settings. The traditional hand piece (Samrta RF) is tended to treat the face, hands and decollete. The DeepRF penetrate deeper into the skin and covers a bigger area for more intense tightening, smoothing and is intended for body treatment (it has a coolong plate for added comfort. The Exact RF is best for targeting areas around the eyes, mouth and jawline with precision

The Virtue RF procedure

  • Topical anaesthesia is applied before the procedure for added comfort
  • The RF energy is delivered into the skin using a robotic precision delivery (RPD) system. The insertion does not create tears or trauma to the skin (unlike microneedling pens or other RF microneedling systems that can scratch the skin)
  • The length of treatment depends on the treatment areas. Usually, it takes 20minutes to treat the full face
  • After the treatment the skin may be pink
  • There is no downtime and you can resume normal activities right after
  • Results continue to improve over the next few weeks
  • Usually, 3-4 treatments sessions at monthly intervals are recommended to get better results
