More people than ever before have prioritized skincare in recent years. There are many different reasons for this, and one of them is due to advanced laser technology making it easy to achieve the skin people desire. You no longer have to buy a lot of over-the-counter creams and other products to rub on your skin every night to have the skin you’ve dreamed of. And many times surgery isn’t necessary if you have severe skin issues that need to be addressed.
A single laser treatment, when completed by an experienced medical professional, can make a significant difference in the appearance of your skin. Several different laser treatment options are available depending on your skin type and the severity of your skin concerns. One of the top options available today is the Ultimate Duo treatment and here is what you should know about it.
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.
The Ultimate Duo is one of our most effective. This custom procedure combines two highly effective facial rejuvenation techniques for an incredible way to restore your youthful look.
Functioning almost like a non-surgical facelift, The Ultimate Duo combines radiofrequency microneedling with the revolutionary CoolPeel™ laser resurfacing procedure to create impressive results.

What is it?
The Ultimate Duo is ideal for patients who want minimal downtime but maximum results and is performed in a single-session treatment.
Tetra CoolPeel: A chemical peel that uses carbon dioxide to achieve effective results, Tetra CoolPeel’s technology allows for extreme precision and control that treats the affected tissues without damaging healthy cells.
Virtue RF Microneedling: Compared to traditional microneedling devices, Virtue RF offers more power and precision that makes it possible to deliver high-energy, yet minimally invasive treatments.
What does it treat?
The two services tackle a wide range of patient concerns. Tetra CoolPeel treats sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores, skin laxity, and improves the overall appearance of the skin’s tone and texture. Virtue RF targets fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, scarring, and enlarged pores.
What are the benefits?
There is a reason why the Ultimate Duo is one of the most popular combination services offered at New South Family Medicine and MedSpa!
The procedures are quick and minimally invasive with little to no downtime.
Both treatments are ideal solutions for all ages and skin types.
Cool Peel is an extremely safe option compared to traditional CO2 laser treatments as it delivers energy without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Virtue RF delivers 36 gold-coated needles into the skin with extreme precision, thus avoiding tearing and trauma.
What can I expect during treatment?
Before the procedures begin, we numb the treatment area with a topical cream to reduce any discomfort. Next, a medical aesthetician, nurse, or PA performs the Virtue RF procedure. For maximum results, we recommend a series of three treatments, four to six weeks apart.
