Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF)
VirtueRF & Morpheus8 Microneedling with RF
What is microneedling with RF?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment in which a device with dozens of fine needles is used to create tiny pinpricks in the skin. These microscopic “injuries” kickstart the skin’s natural healing response, leading to the formation of new collagen, elastin, and skin cells. The result is firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin with a reduction in fine lines, pores, age spots, and scars.
RF (radiofrequency) is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure in which heat is used to stimulate collagen production. RF waves are low-energy waves and are not harmful to the skin. RF skin rejuvenation is used to address skin concerns such as wrinkles and sun damage, as well as contour abnormalities like skin laxity or sagging skin.
We are fortunate enough to have the Morpheus8 at our Macon location and the VirtueRF at our Peachtree City location.
Both Morpheus8 and VirtueRF are cutting-edge technology that combines microneedling with RF. They are next-generation treatments that offer enhanced accuracy and efficacy. They combine two effective technologies in one easy treatment. The microneedling part of the procedure creates tiny pinpricks in the skin. These pinpricks act as channels for the RF energy to flow deep into the skin. As a result, the combined RF microneedling device produces dramatic results. The two techniques boost collagen production for firmer, smoother, blemish-free skin.
Both can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sunspots, and sagging skin. What’s more, microneedling with RF is less invasive than laser skin resurfacing and deep chemical peels, meaning you can get noticeable results with a faster recovery time. However, it is worth noting that most people need more than one Virtue RF microneedling with RF treatment to get the best results.

What to expect with VirtueRF treatment?
At your initial VirtueRF consultation, our aesthetic team will understand your skin concerns, examine your skin, and develop a microneedling with RF treatment plan. They will take “before pictures” to track improvements in your skin with VirtueRF treatments.
During a VirtueRF microneedling with RF session, your skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) will be applied to reduce discomfort. After about 30-45 minutes, the treatment will begin. A full-face VirtueRF microneedling with RF treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. However, treatment time can vary depending on the size of the treated area and the overall skin condition.
You will notice some immediate results after VirtueRF microneedling with RF, and your skin will continue to improve over time. Your VirtueRF microneedling with RF treatment may be paired with a Microcurrent Dual Face Mask, an innovative sheet mask that soothes the skin and eliminates post-treatment redness, so there is virtually no social downtime.
With a series of VirtueRF microneedling with RF treatments, you can expect to see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, elimination or fading of sunspots, and improvement in skin tone and texture. Over the next 4-6 months, your skin will look smoother, brighter, and softer as the collagen continues to rebuild deep in your skin.
