Virtue RF by Cartessa

What is Virtue RF by Cartessa?

Virtue RF by Cartessa, is a brand of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device used for
aesthetic treatments. 

RF microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the added advantage of delivering radiofrequency energy into the skin.

How Does Virtue RF Work?

1. Microneedling: The device uses tiny, sterile needles to create microchannels in
the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing
response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin, which are important
proteins for skin elasticity and firmness.

2. Radiofrequency Energy: In addition to the microneedling, Virtue RF delivers
controlled radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This thermal
energy further stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.

The Virtue RF can be used for the body as well as the face.

There are differing handpieces that can be used to best suite the area being treated. The Virtue RF allows for better control of the energy being delivered which allows for a customized approach to each treatment, also making the treatment less pain than other devices, such as the Morpheus 8.

What Can Virtue RF Treat?

Virtue RF is used for various aesthetic purposes, including:

1. Skin Tightening: It can help tighten loose or sagging skin on the face and body.

2. Wrinkle Reduction: It can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Scar Improvement: It may be used to minimize the appearance of certain types of scars, including acne scars.

4. Texture Improvement: It can help smooth out uneven skin texture.

5. Pore Size Reduction: It may contribute to reducing the size of enlarged pores.

6. Overall Skin Rejuvenation: It can provide an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.

The Virtue RF also has the opportunity to treat the lower lids using the Virtue Exact.

This is a single needle RF microneedling handpiece that is used to treat under eye bags and festoons. This is great for thin under eye skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and fullness of the lower eyelid.

It’s important to note that Virtue RF and similar devices should be used by trained and experienced professionals to ensure safe and effective treatments. 

The specific benefits and outcomes can vary depending on individual factors, including skin type, age, and the specific concerns being addressed.
