What is RF Microneedling?
Aesthetic podiatrist Dr. Suzanne Levine uses a special approach that produces beautiful results for our patients in New York, NY with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. This treatment has been around for a number of years and is popular in the cosmetic industry for its ability to tighten the skin. It utilizes thermal energy in order to promote the production of collagen deep within the skin to create a firmer, smoother surface. At Millennium Podiatry, we often incorporate VirtueRF — the world's first RF microneedling platform — into our skin treatments in order to generate healthier skin, a much smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
"Dr. Levine and staff are absolutely amazing. I had several consultations with other podiatrists, none came close Dr. Levine or Dr. Ryan. Both do meticulous work. I had very painful bunions on both feet, Dr. Levine removed both and I barely have scars (seriously!). Kind, compassionate, and TOP in her field. My sister suffers from the same (painful bunions), and she lives over an hour and half outside NYC but she will ONLY see Dr. Levine for her surgery. I highly recommend 100%!!!"- Deb G / Google / Dec 10, 2020
"Dr. Suzanne Levine and her team are the best! I had a bad infection on my toe that looked dreadful. Dr. Levine treated it with a laser that was gentle, quick, and effective. After two treatments, my toe looked 100% better! I would definitely trust them with any foot issues in the future"- Jeffrey Greenstein / Google / Nov 20, 2020
"Dr. Levine and her team are real top professionals in the field of podiatry. I came here because of a misdiagnosed foot problem. Dr Levine identified the issue immediately. Also the office is state of the art and supper efficient!"- Kim Opiatowski / Google / Nov 17, 2020
"Dr. Levine, Dr. Ryan and the team at Institute Beauté provided the best podiatry services and overall healthcare experience I have ever received. From my initial consultation through both of my foot surgeries and follow-ups, I have had every question answered, every treatment clearly and patiently explained to me and am treated like family during every visit. Dr. Levine is at the top of her field and introduced me to innovative procedures that were able to correct foot problems I formerly thought I would struggle with forever. Correcting my foot pain has changed my life and I could not recommend Dr. Levine and her team highly enough."- Rebecca Schlacter / Google / Nov 17, 2020
"I knew from my consultation with Dr. Ryan that I was in great hands at Dr Levine's practice. He answered all my questions, putting any concerns at ease, educating and assuring me on problems and solutions. We were on the same page when I left the office and I felt confident to book the operations. I was treated for multiple ailments including bunions, flat feet, and crooked toes. Within a month, I can feel the difference in my arch and even the way I walk, not to mention how much better they look. The office is aesthetically glamorous, it gives me great vibes, and the girls at the desk are so sweet and accommodating. This is the place to go if you have any concerns about your feet!"- Brittany Beckett / Google / Nov 17, 2020

How is RF Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling with VirtueRF uses a tool that's glided carefully over the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of new collagen. The applicator emits radiofrequency heat, works by delivering short bursts of RF energy via an array of 36 sterile, golden-coated microneedles, which allow the treatment to provide almost immediate results and an almost entirely painless process. The power is transmitted through these needles, which simultaneously punctures your skin and returns the electrodes on the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that provide cumulative and continuing results. New skin begins to grow as the skin starts to heal, leaving the surface feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and refreshed.
What REsults Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
Immediately following the procedure, microneedling with VirtueRF calls for the use of the Microcurrent Dual Face Mask system. First, a wet enriching mask infused with antioxidants, vitamins, and moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties will be applied to the skin. Next, the enriching mask will be activated. This uses patented Tissue X™ technology in order to ensure the ingredients are delivered deep into the skin. The use of these masks is meant to even further enhance the results and decrease the side effects of the procedure.
Cold water can be used to cleanse the skin on the first day after the treatment. After this, a simple, gentle cleanser should be used. It is also important to avoid applying excessive pressure when you wash your face. We also advise patients to reduce their exposure to direct sunlight for at least three days and refrain from exercise for about 1 – 3 days.
Patients should anticipate tiny, pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-procedure. These will naturally shed when the inherent micro-injury has healed. Results typically become noticeable as your skin heals over a month after your session. Optimal results usually call for 3 – 4 treatments spaced about 3 – 4 weeks apart.
