INFINI is a new dimension in radiofrequency (RF) technology used to address sagging skin, wrinkles, and changes in the skin’s texture. It uses a 3-dimensional approach of delivering RF energy to create tissue volumization. If you are ready to turn back the clock on those early signs of aging, INFINI may be a good choice for you.
How Does INFINI work?
INFINI combines fractional radiofrequency technology with micro needling. As opposed to other radiofrequency platforms that treat the skin from the outside in, INFINI uses flow needle technology to deliver RF where it needs to be – the dermis. The dermis, our second layer of the skin contains collagen -the supporting structure of our skin. By delivering direct heat energy from RF to the dermis, INFINI encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths of the skin. The result is little to no downtime, nearly painless procedure that can greatly improve wrinkles, scars and skin laxity and crepiness.
What is Radiofrequency (RF) technology?
Radiofrequency (RF) energy is sometimes compared to radio waves because they both occur at the same frequency. However, RF is essentially electrical energy. RF technologies used in the skin deliver thiis electrical energy heating the skin and collagen directly in the targeted areas. At that depth, the collagen is heated to approximately 60 degrees celsius where it stimulates the beginning of new collagen resulting in tissue tightening and remodeling.
What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is the process of using very small sterilized needles on the skin. Traditional micro needling utilizes a stamp or roller and is not associated with a light or energy device. The INFINI handpiece contains 49 microscopic needles that are deployed through the skin’s surface. Once deployed, the INFINI microneedle tips conduct radiofrequency energy into predetermined depths of the dermis.
What skin conditions can be treated with INFINI?
- Skin Tightening resulting in smoother looking skin
- Scar Remodeling
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
- Acne Scarring
- Reducing pore size
Can INFINI be combined with other procedures?
INFINI can be combined with many other different treatments such as IPL to remove dark spots and broken capillaries. Dermal Fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can enhance the effect of skin tightening. Typically 2-4 treatments are recommended for optimum effect. These treatments should be spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
Although you may see positive results from your treatment session right away, it may b e a month or two that you see the final result. By that time, collagen production will have kicked in, and your skin should sport a more youthful glow with a visible reduction in skin laxity and fine lines.
Are there any side effects and or/downtime?
Side effects following INFINI are mild in nature, making this minimal downtime treatment. For patients with very vascular skin, there may be mild pinpoint bleeding and a very small chance of bruising. More typically the skin may stay red for 2-3 days. Most patients can resume their normal routine the next day.
On its own, INFINI is an effective method of skin tightening and anti-aging. It can also be paired with other procedures, such as injectable treatments, to produce an even more dramatic result. Our experienced medical team at Glo Medspa is committed to creating a treatment plan that will help you achieve optimal results.
