“The Ultimate Duo”
Here at About Face Medical Aesthetics, we’re proud to offer up over 25 years of combined experience, and all the innovations in anti-aging treatments that come with it. One of these innovations is something we call “The Ultimate Duo,” and it’s one of our very favorite ways to help our patients walk back the clock and relieve the presence of mild to moderate signs of facial aging.
Functioning almost like a non-surgical facelift, The Ultimate Duo combines radiofrequency microneedling with the revolutionary CoolPeel™ laser resurfacing procedure to create impressive results.

Am I a Good Candidate?
Facial rejuvenation can be accomplished in a number of ways, and by combining two of our most effective non-surgical procedures, we’re able to create incredible results in an impressive amount of time. The combination of microneedling with laser skin resurfacing is a great way to smooth over obnoxious fine lines and frustrating wrinkles, and can also help you address a number of other mild to moderate issues.
During your consultation, we’ll help you explore your options. You’re likely a great candidate for The Ultimate Duo if you’re looking for a non-surgical way to effectively address the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Uneven texture
- Acne scarring
How Does The Ultimate Duo Work?
Using a series of incredibly fine-gauge needles, the microneedling procedure creates a series of “micro-channels” on the surface of your skin. These tiny grooves essentially convince your body that it’s been wounded, which prompts it to send a number of restorative and regenerative compounds to the treatment area. This also spurs the production of collagen and elastin, which work to keep your skin naturally healthy and moisturized.
While the microneedling is taking place, the VirtueRF system also delivers radiofrequency energy to specific layers of your skin. This works to encourage your tissues to tighten, resulting in skin that feels firmer and looks more supple and youthful. This part of the procedure also works with the microneedling process to encourage your body’s natural production of increased collagen and elastin for healthy skin.
Once we’ve completed the Virtue RF microneedling process, we’ll include the CoolPeel CO2 laser resurfacing treatment. Using a non-surgical method, highly advanced laser energy will gently and safely remove the topmost layer of your skin, getting rid of dead skin cells and taking other dirt and debris along with it. The entire procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your treatment area.
Your Recovery and Results
Since no two patients are the same, no two Ultimate Duo procedures are identical. We’ll work together to develop your custom treatment plan during your consultations, and we’ll talk you through everything you need to know about both the procedure and your recovery period. Most patients don’t experience much of a recovery period beyond some redness and tenderness in the treatment area, somewhat similar to a sunburn. We’ll talk give you specific aftercare instructions so you'll know exactly what to expect and when you can enjoy your amazing results.
