What if there was a real and lasting solution that smoothed and tightened your skin — and even addressed crepiness — that wasn’t painful or even invasive? There is actually: It’s VirtueRFⓇ microneedling, an innovative treatment that combines the power of radio frequency (RF) energy and the benefits of microneedling — an in-demand aesthetic treatment — to turn back the clock and bring out the best in your skin.
Dr. Sharon Gertzman is committed to creating treatment plans for our patients tailored to their specific needs and goals, and VirtueRF microneedling offers so many benefits. If you’re discouraged about your skin condition and keep identifying problems every time you pass a mirror, this treatment may be just the thing for you.
Virtue RF Microneedling for wrinkles, sagging skin, and more
If you’re unfamiliar with microneedling, it’s a game-changing treatment that revitalizes your skin. The process involves Dr. Gertzman using a handheld device to make minute punctures in your skin. It may sound like it would damage your skin, but the contrary is true — it activates your body’s healing powers and stimulates collagen production, the connective protein that keeps your skin resilient.
Microneedling, when amplified by RF energy, brings about amazing results. RF energy is an electromagnetic current that works magic on your skin with heat. VirtueRF is really two treatments in one, so it can more powerfully address wrinkles, sagging, and even scars.
Great reasons to opt for VirtueRF
VirtueRF offers patients many benefits, which is why the treatment is widely sought.
1. VirtueRF is painless
When Dr. Gertzman administers your VirtueRF treatment, she gently applies a topical anesthetic to the area of your skin that will be treated to numb it. She then uses the state-of-the-art robotic tool with needles to make tiny punctures in your skin. Dr. Gertzman directs the RF energy through the needles, deep into your skin.
The best part is that you stay comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
2. VirtueRF is highly customizable
Depending on your goals, Dr. Gertzman can use different handpieces to bring various benefits to your skin. The Smart RF 36-needle handpiece is fantastic for smoothing and treating your face, decollete (the area below your neck and above your breasts), and even your hands.
She uses the recently developed Deep RF handpiece equipped with 36 needles to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and tighten skin. It gives her the highest degree of control and precision during your treatment.
The Exact RF handpiece is a single-needle device meant for treating the eye, mouth, and jawline areas with unprecedented precision. Unlike other skin treatments, such as ones that use lasers, you’re not at risk for discoloration when you get VirtueRF treatment.
3. You don’t need to spend hours in the office
Dr. Gertzman recommends the number of VirtueRF treatments she feels are best for you, and most patients come in for three sessions, each spaced a month apart. We know your time is valuable and limited, and that’s another feature of VirtueRF treatment that makes it so attractive.
4. Minimal post-treatment downtime and side effects
With VirtueRF, you may notice a bit of swelling or redness, but this typically resolves within 48 hours. After in-office treatment, you’re good to go.
During the initial period after your treatment, Dr. Gertzman advises you to avoid the sun, refrain from using acid-containing products on it, and make sure you stay well-hydrated. Waiting a day to wear any makeup is also advised. She can also counsel you on the right gentle products to use post-treatment from ZO Skin Health, our top-notch product line.
5. VirtueRF results are phenomenal
Since Virtue RF eliminates so many skin problems, our patients are consistently impressed by their skin's transformed texture, appearance, and health. Since the treatment works in unison with your immune system, the results are powerful.
Don’t spend any more time feeling self-conscious about your skin’s imperfections and the signs of aging brought about by the elements and more birthdays. Check out VirtueRF.
