Gravity, genetics, sun damage, and collagen breakdown all contribute to slack, dull-looking skin. This can manifest as “sinking” (eye area and cheeks appear hollow, for example) or “sagging” (skin seems loose). Infini helps combat this sagging effect (better known as laxity) using High Intensity Focused Radiofrequency (RF). Applying microneedling technology (the same technique we use in our PRP Therapy), Infini releases targeted radiofrequencies deep into the tissues. This energy stimulates both collagen and elastin production, which can help reinvigorate the skin.
Unlike surgical tightening, which solves only one dermatologic issue (skin and muscle laxity), Infini encourages your body’s natural healing processes. Over time, patients will see significant tightening of the skin, as well as a decrease in acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.
After a brief consultation with the patient, where we evaluate his or her skin condition, we can target the Infini handpiece to different depths. Using multiple insulated needles, only the tips deliver RF energy waves at 3 different levels: deep, medium, and superficial. This delivers energy to the entire depth of the skin, and can achieve custom results that can give patients the results they’re looking for.
What to Expect
Length of Procedure
Depending on the patient’s goals and our initial assessment, Infini can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
Infini produces safe, natural-looking skin restoration that is approved for most skin types. Following the procedures, patients will see an improvement in skin firmness and tone, fewer wrinkles and fine lines, and in some cases, a decrease in certain kinds of skin imperfections (such as acne scars). For the most dramatic results, we recommend using the procedure on the brow area, around the eyes, on the upper lip, along the jaw, the neck, and the chest.
Prior to the procedure, topical anesthetic will be used. During Infini treatment, you should feel an unusual pressure as the handpiece is inserted under the skin. Afterwards many patients notice results almost immediately, but it will take several months (up to 6) for maximum results. Some patients have reported results that last years; but these outcomes will vary depending on lifestyle.
When the local anesthesia has worn off, you may feel a little tenderness or notice redness, bruising, or swelling in the treated area. This tends to be fleeting, and disappears within 24 to 48 hours.
Number of Treatments
The maximum results for patients looking for skin tightening and wrinkle correction can be typically achieved with 3 treatments, usually spaced 1 month apart. For patients with significant acne scarring, it may take as many as 6 treatments to see optimal smoothing.
Our Doctors Say…
“I’m excited about Infini, a multi-needled radio frequency device that passes through the epidermis to deliver heat energy under the top layer of skin, resulting in plumper, smoother skin within about 4 weeks. It’s also effective on acne and traumatic scars.”
