RF Microneedling
in Newport Beach, CA

Virtue RF Microneedling is not just a treatment but it is an experience.

Our Newport Beach RF Microneedling, Virtue, is an FDA-Cleared no downtime RF Microneedling treatment that can be performed on the skin of face, neck, chest, hands, and body. This treatment stimulates the skin to produce new collagen and elastin improving the texture of the skin. Benefits include skin tightening, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and pores size as well as improvement in scars, and stretch mark appearance.

How is Virtue RF Microneedling different from other RF microneediling treatments?

Newport Beach Cosmetic Dermatologist, Dr. Bonakdar, prides herself on always being an early adopter of new and safe technologies. In 2016 she was one of the first to introduce Vivace RF Microneedling which was the gold standard in the industry until the new generation Virtue RF Microneedling came along.

Virtue RF Microneedling takes all that was great about Vivace RF Microneedling, its predecessor, and combines it with some additional capabilities like less discomfort, new tips for neck and jowl lifting as well as body treatments. Just as its predecessor, Virtue RF Microneedling has a robotic arm instead of snap reflex and gold coated needles. The treatment is elegant and does not cause excessive pain, trauma or healing time.

How does Virtue RF Microneedling work?

  • The treatment tip has a set of 36 needles that robotically puncture the skin causing micro-injuries in the skin.
  • Then RF radiofrequency energy is transmitted from the tip of the gold coated needles deep in the skin.
  • The controlled skin injury and the radiofrequency trigger the skin to heal microscopic wounds by producing new skin cells, collagen, and elastin.
  • The micro-injuries also produce micro-channels that are used to introduce bioactive ingredients deep in the skin which heal the skin faster, eliminate downtime and boost new skin cell, collagen, and elastin production.
  • LED blue light on the treatment hand piece kills bacteria, whereas red light has anti-aging benefits.
  • Over the course of the treatment series, the depth of the needle penetration and the RF energy distribution will be increased for ongoing skin rejuvenation.

What Is The Science Behind Virtue RF Microneedling?

1. Micro Channel Depth: Virtue RF needles create microscopic channels deep into the living cells of the skin. Unlike other treatments, the depth of these micro channels can be customized to the skin condition being treated with over 30 possible depths to optimize collagen and elastin production.

2. Micro Channel Delivery: Virtue RF micro channels remain open for up to six hours and are ideal for delivering anti-aging bioactive products deep into the skin increasing new collagen production.

3. Radiofrequency Energy: Virtue RF delivers RF radiofrequency energy deep in the skin where collagen and elastin production is initiated.

4. Gold Microneedles: Unlike other systems, Virtue RF needles are gold coated and are inert to the skin, whereas microneedles made of other metals cause allergic dermatitis and result in prolonged healing times.

4. Light Emitting Diode: LED pulses activate skin cells to increase collagen production, increase moisture levels in the skin and improve skin tone and texture ultimately resulting in skin tightening.

What are Virtue RF microneedling pre and post instructions?

Pre-Treatment Instructions:
Dr. Bonakdar advises her Newport Beach Virtue RF Microneedling patients to stop all active skincare including Retin-A three days prior to your treatment.

Post Treatment Instructions:
Do not use any skincare products or make up on the skin for 6 hours after treatment because the micro-channels remain open during this time and products introduced will cause an inflammatory reaction.
