Virtue RF Microneedling Q & A
What is Virtue RF?
The Virtue RF system at Begin with Skin MedSpa is a minimally-invasive RF Microneedling procedure that treats wrinkles, fine lines and also addresses other unique skin care concerns by smoothing and tightening the skin. The Virtue RF treatment at Begin with Skin MedSpa has minimal downtime.

How does Virtue RF work?
Sterile microneedles create channels into the skin to stimulate natural collagen production . The radio-frequency heat energy is delivered from the tip of the microneedle into the skin. The RF energy promotes remodeling of collagen and elastin to both tighten and lift the skin.
How many treatments do I need?
Virtue RF is best done in a series of three treatments for optimal collagen regeneration.
Is Virtue RF only for the face?
Virtue RF microneedling is not limited to the face. Begin with Skin Medspa loves Virtue RF not only for the amazing results it has provided our clients, but for the simple fact that Virtue RF can work anywhere from the face, neck, decolletage, and body.
