INFINI™ Skin Tightening
July 10, 2018
If you were to write a love note to yourself, what would it say? We tend to be really good at pointing out our flaws, but instead, how about focusing on what you can do about them. Like a bit of maintenance to help you love your body again and be pleased with yourself. At Art of SKIN, we can turn that love note into a love book.
Our board-certified dermatologists believe that the best treatments are the ones that stimulate your skin to heal itself. That’s why we are excited to offer INFINI™, a remarkable skin smoothing and tightening treatment. It combines the benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy and micro needling to activate collagen production and contraction, restoring more youthful skin from within.
One Single Procedure, Multiple Benefits
The INFINI™ device is the RF skin tightening technology many have been waiting for. It utilizes microneedles to deliver RF energy with a precision that has been unattainable until now, for superior collagen remodeling, stimulation, and contraction. What does that mean for you?
With less downtime, reduced discomfort, and fewer treatments,INFINI™ can improve:
- Sagging skin along the jawline
- Acne scars or pockmarks on the cheeks or forehead
- Fine lines or laxity in the neck
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. Therefore INFINI™ can be used to treat all skin types.
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 of energy delivery, creating customized results for each patient.
First, we will clean your face, then apply a topical anesthetic. Dr. Lubitz (a board-certified dermatologist) then applies the INFINI handpiece to your skin over the areas to be treated. The microneedles penetrate your skin using INFINI™’s ComfortFlow™ technology, delivering quick bursts of RF energy, each lasting only a fraction of a second.
MostINFINI™ procedures take about 30 minutes. After treatment, redness is common but is easily covered with makeup or tinted sunscreen. Results emerge gradually as collagen contracts and regenerate; your doctor will discuss this in more detail during your consultation.
INFINI™ Radiofrequency is a minimally invasive treatment that can improve sagging skin, wrinkles as well as various skin texture issues, such as scarring and large pores. A handheld device with microneedles is pressed against the skin, sending radiofrequency energy to multiple layers below the surface. The combination of micro needling and radiofrequency stimulates the body’s natural collagen and healing processes, without the downtime of more invasive procedures.
As opposed to other radiofrequency platforms that treat the skin from the outside in, INFINI™ uses single-use gold-plated microneedles to deliver energy directly to the dermis, therefore, stimulating collagen growth and tissue tightening. This unique and innovative technology protects the top layer of the skin, allowing treatments on all skin types, even tanned skin.
As with traditional micro needling and resurfacing treatments, you can combine PRP (platelet-rich plasma) with your treatment. PRP releases growth factors into the skin to help accelerate the body’s own repair process and assist with the stimulation of new collagen and elastin.
