The human body is in a constant state of repair and evolution. Every time the skin is broken, the regeneration process begins. Growth factors, white blood cells, and other healing properties rush to the site of the wound to address the damage.
The micro-needling technique stimulates the flow of collagen in targeted areas by creating a series of tiny “micro” wounds. These tiny punctures prompt the steady flourishing of collagen, which addresses such conditions as acne, age spots, melasma, and fine lines and reduces the appearance of scars. 
Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Virtue RF represents cutting-edge innovation in the micro-needling process. The “RF” in the device’s name stands for radiofrequency. Powerful yet painless waves that transmit at either 1MHz or 2MHz frequency settings stimulate collagen production within the subdermal realm just beneath the skin, bolstering your skin’s elasticity. Skin Perfect is proud to offer Virtue RF at our Costa Mesa and Rancho Cucamonga clinics, so schedule your session today!
Virtue RF is an innovative technique that leaves you looking and feeling refreshed with immediate results and little to no downtime. This modern technology is not only minimally invasive, but it also allows for precise and effective treatment of your unique target areas.
If you have scars, textural issues, or photoaging (sun damage), you may be the ideal candidate for a Virtue RF treatment. Virtue RF is both a preventive and corrective treatment that can benefit people with all skin types. Please inform your Skin Perfect medical professional if you have a history of eczema or psoriasis, as they may prevent you from undergoing micro-needling. You may also need to postpone your appointment if you are experiencing an active outbreak or infection along the treatment area. Your doctor can determine your eligibility for VirtueRF during your comprehensive consultation.

In the weeks leading up to your micro-needling procedure, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle and quit smoking, as tobacco products impede the healing process. You may also be advised to stop taking certain blood thinners to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding. You will also need to discontinue taking any Retinol-based products one week before your procedure and limit sun exposure for 2-4 weeks prior to your session. A qualified member of the Skin Perfect team will review all the necessary steps you need to take for your specific procedure during your personal consultation.
A Virtue RF session involves minimal pain and discomfort. To ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your session, the target areas will be numbed with a topical anesthetic before your session begins. Then, sterile micro-needles will deliver heat energy via radio frequency waves, stimulating collagen production within your skin. There is no tearing, cutting, or trauma to the skin. The length of your Virtue RF session will depend on the extent of your treatment areas. The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes, but the benefits can last for several months!
You can resume your daily activities immediately following a Virtue RF treatment. This non-invasive treatment involves minimal downtime. You may experience some redness and tingling or burning sensations at the micro-needling sites, but this will dissipate within a few hours. Most patients report all redness and minimal discomfort are gone within 12-24 hours. Please avoid scratching or irritating your skin while your skin transforms into a more youthful you!
You will enjoy immediate results with Virtue RF, courtesy of your Skin Perfect team. Prepare to be dazzled by your smoother, softer, silkier skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines. While results will vary by individual, your skin will continue to regenerate and improve within the 3 months following your Virtue RF session and can last for years.
