INFINI RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING
INFINI allows multi-layered approach for customized treatments, regardless of a patient’s skin type. This unique and innovative technology protects the top layer of the skin therefore, allowing treatments on all skin types. This is particularly important for darker skin types such as Asian, Hispanic, and African American skin, which can easily experience darkening (hyper pigmentation) after traditional procedures.
INFINI can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scarring and acne scarring or pockmarks on the cheeks or forehead
- Sagging skin along the jawline
- Laxity in the neck
- Overall skin rejuvenation
INFINI makes it possible to have a more youthful appearance without patients having to worry about missing work or social events. This procedure on the face takes approximately 30 minutes, and the patient can wear makeup the next day to cover any redness. With INFINI there is very little pain during the procedure and little to no downtime. Dr. LeBeau is excited to offer this new treatment in his office. “One of the things that sets the INFINI procedure apart from other procedures is the minimal downtime. You can have a treatment and just be a little pink the next day.”
Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW DOES IT WORK?
INFINI delivers pulses of high-intensity RF energy to precise depths through very fine, gold-coated microneedles. The needles create tiny channels, allowing the heat energy to bypass the outer layer of skin. This enables us to heat the deeper levels to the higher temperatures required for optimal collagen contraction, without injury to the surface skin. As an added benefit, the penetration of the needles has also been shown to mechanically stimulate collagen production. INFINI is different from many other skin tightening devices because it allows the practitioner to choose a precise depth and intensity for energy delivery, creating customized results for each patient.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
You will feel heat and some pressure. The treatment is tolerable. We will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Compared with other laser treatments, many find the INFINI
HOW LONG IS THE DOWNTIME?
The skin may be slightly pink and slightly swollen for 1-2 days and the skin can feel a little rough to touch for several days. In general, INFINI is considered a minimal downtime procedure in which someone may return to work or daily activities rapidly without noticeable stigma of a cosmetic procedure.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
Unlike many other procedures, this has long lasting results since it is your own body that is at work. The effects could last for years.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
You can expect to see some changes as soon as a day or two after the procedure. However your body will continue to rebuild collagen for several weeks after, so you will see improvement over the next six months.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE AND HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
A typical treatment session lasts 15-45 minutes depending on whether small areas of the face to complete face and neck zones are treated with INFINI. Typically, treatments sessions are spaced a month apart and 2-3 sessions are recommended for a meaningful result. During your consultation we will discuss your goals which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just one treatment.
MICRONEEDLE RF TREATMENT PRODUCES WELL DEFINED ZONES OF COAGULATIVE DAMAGE.
Infini is clinically proven, with studies to back the technology. The histology images below show the discrete coagulative injury zones in the dermis while sparing the epidermis. The natural healing process, following the skin rejuvenation treatment, replaces the damaged zones with new collagen and elastin.
