FAQ VirtueRF

What can VirtueRF help me with?

With the VirtueRF you can achieve a nonsurgical facelift, diminish the appearance of acne scars, improve skin texture, and anti-aging benefits. It all depends on the setting and the provider. Elixir Aesthetics has mastered the VirtueRF and we achieve the best results for our clients going above and beyond!

How does VirtueRF work?

VirtueRF works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. These needles

  1. create microscopic channels deep within the dermis to stimulate the natural production of collagen and
  2. deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin that tightens and lifts the skin. 

How long will it take to see results?

A benefit of RF Microneedling is that the collagen you build is your own so results are natural, immediate and will continue to improve with time.  It can take up to 4-6 weeks until the full benefits are apparent

What makes VirtueRF, virtually pain free compared to other RF Microneedle treatments?

Virtue RF microneedles are driven into the skin using the exclusive robotic precision delivery (RPD) system. The insertion is so exact that it creates no tearing or trauma to the skin (unlike microneedling pens or other RF microneedling systems that can scratch the skin causing pain, blood and sebum in the channels and mixed outcomes).  We will apply numbing cream prior to the treatment depending on the area of concern for added comfort. 

What can you expect after a treatment?

One of the key benefits of a Virtue treatment is that there is no social downtime.  The skin may appear red for a few hours but the exclusive post-care regimen works to sooth the skin so most will only notice a post-treatment tightening and glow to their skin.  Your provider may recommend no make-up for 24hrs and of course, its always important to use sun protection.  

Who is the right candidate for VirtueRF?

Virtue RF is a truly ageless procedure.  It is used as a preventative and a corrective treatment for patients with light to dark skin types.  It is important to talk to your provider about any concerns you might have before your Virtue RF treatment. 

How many treatments will I need?

We recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended. 

What is VirtueRF post treatment?

Only the Virtue RF pairs every treatment with the most innovative sheet mask technology available – Microcurrent Dual Face Mask . The unique dual-mask system uses patented Tissue X™ microcurrent technology to deliver skin soothing ingredients deeper into the skin.  Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, it eliminates redness and optimizes the post-RF microneedling healing.

The wet mask Immediately soothes the skin with: 

  • Sodium Hyaluronate  
  • Aloe Vera Extract 
  • Caffeine 

The dry mask is woven with scientifically proven, Tissue X™ technology uses differences in ions to generate a microcurrent without the use of separate devices, electricity or metals.  

Developed by FRANZ skincare. 

Can I combine  VirtueRF with a hydrafacial?

Yes, we recommend getting a hydrafacial 2 weeks after the VirtueRF and here is why:
