The holidays are here! Make sure you remember to treat yourself to something special this year too. Our recommendation? Virtue RF Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). An innovative take on traditional CIT of the past, Virtue RF offers evolved technology that delivers exceptional results with more versatility and no downtime.
First, let’s talk Collagen Induction Therapy as a procedure itself:
Unlike other, more targeted treatments, CIT has the ability to address a whole host of skin conditions. It’s used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
It’s gained popularity over the years because of its simplicity and its versatility.
CIT works by creating tiny puncture wounds in the skin. These invisible pinpricks then send signals to the body to create new collagen. Collagen is a fibrous protein found naturally in the skin that is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. As we age, collagen naturally dissipates, meaning that keeping new collagen coming in is vital for glowing, ageless skin.
Now that you’ve got the basics down, let’s turn it up a notch.
Adding radio frequency (RF) to your treatment, a la Virtue RF Collagen Induction Therapy makes an already rockstar treatment even better. Here’s how:
For starters, Virtue RF Collagen Induction Therapy isn’t limited to just the facial region. It can be used anywhere on the neck or body as well. The addition of RF also means that it can treat more concerns, more efficiently — this means delivering energy across a large area of tissue for deep heating and skin tightening anywhere on the body. Since Virtue RF CIT is able to hit the deepest layers of the skin, the result is non-surgical skin tightening that combats early signs of loose or sagging skin.
Anyone who wants to see improvements to their skin can benefit from Virtue RF.
Following your treatment, you’ll likely be a bit red and irritated, but don’t worry — that’s to be expected.
Still, even after the redness fades, don’t expect a miracle overnight. While your skin will certainly look smoother in a couple of weeks, new collagen growth takes time. Peak results will show up closer to eight weeks after the treatment.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that one treatment may not be enough — expect to get up to three treatments before you see optimal results for your personal aesthetic goals.
Don’t worry if you aren’t sure what you need, we encourage having a consultation prior to starting treatment so we can tailor the procedure to your individual needs. After all, this is all about your glow up!
