If you’re looking for a way to liven up dull and drab skin, look no further than microneedling with the Infini™ RF. This powerful approach to collagen induction therapy can revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, giving it the glow it deserves.
What Can Microneedling with the Infini RF Treat?
The Infini incorporates two very effective skin-rejuvenating therapies: microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy. This fractional, non-ablative device is perfect for the treatment of many common skin issues, including:
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Active acne
- Acne scars
- Trauma and surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven or rough skin texture
This impressive combination can be used on any skin type, even for those with darker skin tones and tanned skin. Treatments are typically applied to the face and neck areas, but the Infini RF can be used on most parts of the body that require attention.
One aspect our patients love about the Infini RF system is that treatments can be completely customized to address exactly what’s ailing your unique skin. The Infini device has interchangeable tips of either 16 or 49 microneedles, which allows Dr. Robb to target smaller, harder-to-treat areas that other devices just aren’t equipped to handle, like around the eyes. Then he can easily turn to larger areas, like the neck, in the same session. The depth that the needles penetrate can also be adjusted between 0.25 mm to 3.5 mm, giving your skin the proper level of rejuvenation it needs.
What to Do Before Treatment
You’ll want to keep a few things in mind while getting ready for your Infini RF procedure. You should try to avoid prolonged sun exposure for a week or two prior to treatment. You should stay away from spray tans too. Refrain from taking any blood thinners like aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen leading up to your session. Unfortunately, this includes alcoholic beverages that also thin your blood. It’s also a good idea to wear a top that leaves your neck exposed if that’s an area that you’ll addressing with this treatment.
The Infini Experience
Now that you’re ready for your session, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the targeted area to ensure the most comfortable treatment possible. The device will then be motioned over the skin as the gold-plated microneedles deliver the energy deep into the epidermis. As an added benefit, the needles are insulated so that only the tips of the needles deliver energy, which keeps the surrounding tissues safe from any adverse effects. Unlike other energy systems that disperse the energy throughout the entire surface of your skin, the Infini RF provides targeted therapy to address your particular concerns. The procedure usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
What to Expect After Treatment
Immediately following your session, you’ll notice some redness and mild swelling in the treatment area. By the next day, you may notice little grid patterns where the needles penetrated the surface of your skin. This is a normal occurrence following the Infini procedure. Within four or five days, you will start to notice that your skin is firmer and more taut. This tightness will continue in the weeks following your session and can last for several months.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The best results from microneedling with the Infini RF device come over the course of a series of treatments. Dr. Robb generally suggests three to five session for an optimal outcome. Of course, this depends on the condition of your skin and your revitalization goals. Typically, to address wrinkles and loose skin, two to three treatments may be recommended, while more in-depth concerns like acne scarring could require up to five procedures to see the outcome that you desire.
