At AVIE!, we’re in the business of addressing the widest range of needs possible, which includes solutions for tighter, smoother skin. That’s why our menu of services includes two state-of-the-art skin tightening treatments: VirtueRF microneedling and Ultherapy®. While both treatments provide gradual improvements, they utilize different technologies to offer different benefits.
If you’re wondering whether you need VirtueRF or Ultherapy, that begs the question — what are you looking to accomplish?
To improve specific skin texture concerns, VirtueRF may be a better option.
All skin types can experience the complete precision power of VirtueRF, one of the most advanced microneedling treatments available today. This FDA-cleared treatment combines microneedling with potent radiofrequency (RF) energy and LED light to help smooth wrinkles and fine lines, tighten skin, minimize pore size, reduce acne blemishes, smooth stretch marks, diminish acne scars and improve overall skin tone and texture anywhere on the body. This is all possible through VirtueRF’s precise microneedles which create controlled damage in the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth. All the while, RF energy is heating the skin to trigger a tightening effect. But wait, there’s more! LED light is also added to treat acne with blue light or to treat wrinkles with red light. These advanced treatment pairings afford optimal skin-renewing results, so you can enjoy tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin where you need it. When performed in a series of three, you can achieve your best results with minimal to no downtime.
For an overall uplift and tightening effect, Ultherapy may be a more ideal treatment.
A facelift isn’t for everyone, and when you want to look younger and more refreshed without going under the knife, a non-surgical uplift may be right for you. Ultherapy is completely non-invasive, using ultrasound energy to stimulate and tighten the deep foundational layers of skin and muscle — including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift — to provide a subtle uplift on the face, neck or chest. Ultherapy has been FDA approved since 2009 and you typically only need one treatment. Plus, there’s no downtime since Ultherapy doesn’t cut or disrupt the surface of the skin. You will notice the most dramatic lifting, toning and smoothing results over a three-to-six-month period. Further improvements will gradually appear up to a year following your treatment as new collagen and elastin are generated.
