Many people struggle with skin problems like wrinkles, acne scarring and sagging, but do not want to resort to surgery. Now, a revolutionary solution called INFINI radiofrequency microneedling is allowing these people to experience dramatic results with less downtime.
What Is Radiofrequency Technology?
Radiofrequency, or RF, is a nonsurgical approach that goes beyond the superficial layer of the skin to treat aging problems. Unlike less effective procedures that target the uppermost layers of the skin, the RF treatment generates heat in the deeper layer of skin, called the dermis, without affecting the epidermis.
When used in the skin, RF technologies distribute heat energy into the dermis, which kickstarts your body’s collagen-producing process. The result is tighter, toned and more elastic skin.
How Does Radiofrequency Technology Benefit Skin?
INFINI is a new radiofrequency (RF) breakthrough that can reverse imperfections like wrinkles, loose skin and changes in skin texture. It uses a three-dimensional approach of delivering RF energy to volumize tissues.
What makes INFINI different from other RF platforms is that it combines powerful fractional RF technology with microneedling to stimulate collagen production within the dermis. Collagen is skin’s natural “scaffolding,” but your body makes less of it as you age, allowing skin elasticity to break down. Gradually, wrinkles form, and skin begins to have a loose or flaccid appearance.
By directing multi-layered RF heat energy into the dermis, INFINI encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. The result is a nearly painless procedure that can greatly improve wrinkling, scars and skin laxity with little to no healing time.
INFINI RF microneedling is also highly customizable and provides excellent results regardless of skin tone or type. Following this gentle skin rejuvenation treatment, your body’s natural healing process will replace collagen and elastin in the targeted areas.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of applying a device with tiny needles to the skin to encourage it to make new collagen and elastin. Traditional microneedling procedures use a stamp or roller to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores and many other skin flaws.
However, the cutting-edge technology of combining microneedling with RF energy provides even more desirable results that stimulate new elastin and collagen to produce visible results sooner. The INFINI handpiece contains an array of 49 insulated microscopic needles that conduct radiofrequency energy into the dermis at controlled depths, which represents a great leap forward from traditional microneedling techniques.
Frequently Asked Questions About INFINI
Q: What skin imperfections can INFINI treat?
A: Not only is INFINI beneficial for reducing wrinkles, improving skin’s texture and helping achieve tighter skin, but it is also a safe and effective treatment for many other skin conditions. INFINI has helped thousands of women and men around the world see tighter, smoother skin with fewer scars and flaws.
Q: What areas can INFINI treat?
A: Many areas of the skin respond favorably to treatment with INFINI. Patients most frequently request INFINI treatments to correct wrinkles, scarring and uneven skin tone on their faces. However, if you choose, you can also opt for INFINI treatment to tighten crepey, aging skin along your neck and jawline. For chest rejuvenation, women may see excellent results in using INFINI to treat vertical wrinkles in their décolletage area.
Q: Do you ever recommend getting INFINI in conjunction with other procedures?
A: Yes. For people who want to see even better results, The INFINI treatment is an excellent complement to other skin care solutions such as injectable products. For example, if your main concern is wrinkles around your brow and eye area, combining Botox with INFINI can relax the muscles in that area to prevent those fine lines from deepening.
For comprehensive facial rejuvenation, adding INFINI to dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Radiesse, Sculptra and Restylane can treat moderate to deep wrinkles around the mouth and nose, as well as volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face area.
You may also choose to use INFINI in conjunction with fractionated laser skin resurfacing to further encourage collagen production and wrinkle improvement.
Q: Is INFINI safe for people with darker skin tones or tanned skin?
A: Yes. Unlike many laser and light technologies, INFINI is a much safer technology to use on tanned skin. Because of INFINI’s unique smooth needling technology, the device avoids the surface layers of skin, instead delivering energy directly to the collagen-producing dermis. By avoiding treatment through the top layer of the skin, post-treatment pigmentation is greatly reduced.
INFINI is approved for treatment in all skin types, and it is ideal for darker-skinned patients who are not good candidates for other RF devices or laser procedures due to the risk of pigmentary problems.
Q: How many treatments will I need with INFINI?
A: Depending on the nature of your condition and what you are hoping to resolve, you may need more than one treatment to see your desired results. For example, a typical treatment regimen might include a series of two to four sessions, spaced about four weeks apart. We will determine what plan is best for you during a pre-treatment consultation.
Q: Do INFINI treatments hurt?
A: Depending on your individual pain tolerance and the settings on the INFINI handpiece, you may experience a bit of discomfort. In an international patient survey, most people reported mild discomfort with INFINI, akin to the sensation of a rubber band snapping across their skin. However, if you’re worried about pain, we will take every precaution to ensure your maximum comfort during the procedure. Ask about options such as a topical numbing cream.
Q: Are there any side effects or downtime with INFINI?
A: Side effects following INFINI tend to be mild, and include redness, swelling, rough skin, bruising and slight pinpoint bleeding for approximately 24 hours after treatment. Many INFINI patients can return to work and resume other typical daily activities within a day or two of their procedure, which makes it ideal for anyone who is looking for a skin solution that fits within a busy lifestyle.
