INFINI™: Micro Needling with Radiofrequency
Treat a Host of Skin Concerns at Once with INFINI™ at Our Philadelphia Area Cosmetic Dermatology Spa
Decline in collagen production begins as early as age 20, as the body makes approximately 1 percent less collagen with each passing year. Collagen is one of the fundamental building blocks of the skin, providing it with support and firmness. Both radiofrequency (RF) energy and the creation of carefully controlled micro injuries are known to stimulate its production (neocollagenesis). With the INFINI™ device, we can significantly boost neocollagenesis by combining the two into a treatment known as RF micro needling at our Philadelphia area practices.
Our patients find RF micro needling to be a practical method for looking younger, as it provides comprehensive facial skin rejuvenation without requiring downtime. It is also safe and effective for treating skin in sensitive areas, such as around the eyes and the upper lip.
What Can RF Micro Needling With INFINI™ Treat?
RF micro needling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment option for patients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin with minimal downtime. The INFINI™ device is FDA-approved for use on the face, but is also used safely on the neck and other body areas. Most skin types can be treated effectively.
Our patients are amazed with the amount of wrinkle reduction and skin tightening that RF micro needling achieves. The INFINI™ treatment is often referred to as a non-surgical face and neck lift.
RF micro needling with INFINI™ can significantly improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles ("game changer" for upper lip lines)
- Scars due to previous acne, surgery, or trauma
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Sallow dull skin
- Sagging lax skin
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
How Does RF Micro Needling / INFINI™ Work?
RF micro needling uses insulated, gold-plated micro needles on a handpiece to deliver focused, high-intensity RF energy deep into the dermis. INFINI™ greatly reduces harm to the epidermis or surface layer of skin, as the three depth levels the micro needles pass through are at the dermal level. By bypassing the epidermis, downtime is limited and the risks of increased pigmentation (hyperpigmentation) are greatly reduced.
The combination of heat generated by the RF energy and the micro injuries created by the micro needling, boosts the production of collagen revealing tighter, more robust, youthful skin.
While many patients notice improvement after just one RF micro needling session, three treatment sessions, each spaced four weeks apart, are usually recommended for optimal results. The beneficial effects continue to improve for six months after the last micro needling session.
What to Expect from an INFINI™ Treatment Session
To minimize discomfort, we apply a topical numbing cream before treatment, use cold blowing air during the treatment, and apply cold water compresses and/or ice packs after treatment.
You will be red and swollen immediately after treatment. However, most patients return to work or their normal activities the next day. A complete set of pre- and post-treatment instructions will be provided during the consultation process.
