New Non-Surgical Treatment to Correct Facial Wrinkles Introduced in Naples at The Q iLasik & Med Spa

“Virtue RF” to Be Explained at Free Seminars

NAPLES, FLA., October 21, 2020 – A new non-surgical option to correct facial wrinkles and tighten skin has been introduced in Naples at The Q iLasik and Med Spa, Southwest Florida’s newest medical spa offering advanced aesthetic services, the area’s first dry eye spa and the new iLasik procedure all under one roof.  

The new “Virtue RF” is an advanced radio frequency micro-needling device that was recently approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The Virtue RF is also available at the Assuage Luxury Spa in Fort Myers, which is part of Quigley Eye Specialists.

Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephen Prendiville, who is the medical director of The Q and Assuage, will explain the new procedure at a series of four free seminars throughout Southwest Florida:

  • Friday, Jan. 22 – Bonita Bay Club, 26660 Country Club Drive

  • Friday, Feb. 12 – Gulf Harbour Yacht & Country Club in Fort Myers

  • Friday, March 5 – Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, 851 Gulfshore Blvd. N.

  • Friday, August 20 – Rum Runners, 5848 Cape Harbour Drive, Cape Coral

The Q at 675 Piper Boulevard in North Naples was opened by Quigley Eye Specialists in October to offer patients the latest advances in aesthetic and laser treatments, in addition to offering iLASIK, a dry eye spa and a range of other elective services all under one roof. The Q is the first medical spa in Naples and among the first in Southwest Florida to offer the new Virtue RF.

Virtue RF delivers radio frequency energy to a variety of depths, regardless of skin type, to stimulate the production of collagen.  It can be used for several facial rejuvenation treatments, including skin tightening, acne scarring, stretch marks, scars and improvements in skin texture, according to Dr. Prendiville. Virtue RF is the next generation in RF microneedling technology with less downtime, faster treatment and very little discomfort.

“One of the great benefits of the Virtue RF is that the collagen you build is your own so results are natural, immediate and will continue to improve with time.  Unlike previous RF treatments, Virtue RF is pain-free with no social downtime,” Dr. Prendiville said.

Dr. Prendiville will explain the advantages of Virtue RF as well as other facial rejuvenation procedures during the free seminars.

The seminars begin at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch followed by Dr. Prendiville’s presentation and questions. The seminar is free, but reservations are required by calling 239-329-TheQ.  Space is limited.

Using before and after pictures of actual patients, Dr. Prendiville also will discuss the latest advances in facelifts, eyelid lifts, nose surgery, lasers, and reconstructive surgery.  He also will review injectable wrinkle fillers Botox®, Sculptra®, Juvederm®; Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Radiesse®, Voluma®, Vollure®, and Revanesse Versa® for deeper wrinkles and lines. 

In addition to a light lunch, attendees will be able to make an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Prendiville.

Dr. Prendiville is a Fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon who is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.  He has performed more than 3,000 surgical procedures.

He is recognized nationally as a facelift expert with more than 20 articles published in medical journals and he has served as guest editor for Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America. 

Dr. Prendiville is one of only 10 doctors in the U.S. to be honored as an Elite Inductee into the RealSelf 100 and RealSelf 500 Hall of Fame for excellent patient service and his willingness to answer patient inquiries on the RealSelf website, which is the leading online community that helps people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.  To achieve Elite Inductee status, surgeons must be among the top 1 percent of more than 1,000 surgeons reviewed.
