Virtue RF® Microneedling
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling treatments are more powerful and more effective than traditional microneedling treatments. Radiofrequency is used to deliver energy more precisely. As a result, there is less risk of scabbing, burning, scarring, and pigmentation issues, and no bleeding whatsoever. The procedure is pain-free and there is little to no downtime. You can get back to doing what you love in skin that makes you feel great!
What Makes Virtue RF® special?
Virtue RF® offers more pulse duration and pulse settings than the majority of other RF Microneedling hand pieces including the ability to turn off the RF energy itself, which may have some specific uses for certain treatment protocols. Ultimately, the more choice a professional has with their tools the more they can customize a treatment to their patient’s unique needs. At RejuveenMD, we favor formulating custom treatment plans for our patients, and so having versatility in our approach options is one of the reasons we have adopted the VirtueRF® system.
The SmartRF handpiece offers a Robotic Precision Delivery (RPD) to offer unmatched options in delivering microneedling treatment at a given skin depth. Paired with this delivery system is the sheet mask technology, the Microcurrent Dual Face Mask system is a two-mask system that is paired with every VirtueRF microneedling session. After the VirtueRF session, a wet mask is applied to the patient. This mask is infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and moisturizing agents so that your skin is rejuvenated. A second mask is applied which contains patented Tissue X technology to apply ingredients deep into the skin by using an ion-induced current.

Is there Downtime?
Our equipment offers little to no downtime. Recovery is quite simple, as the laser is designed to leave surrounding tissue unharmed. Immediately after your treatment, the skin in the treated area(s) may be slightly red and inflamed, with some patients describing the feeling like a mild sunburn. Generally, uncomfortable or abnormal sensations will resolve in a few hours. However, some patients may require one or two days for their skin to return to a normal state. Any persistent discomfort can be easily managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication.
Frequently Asked Questions
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like light pressure with a light sparking sensation every now and then.

Many patients report that the treatment was comfortable to virtually pain-free for them. The Virtue Microneedling RF device was made with the comfort of the patient in mind.
