The INFINI laser process takes advantage of the skins habit of responding to micro-injuries by producing new collagen. This process is initiated by using high-frequency radio delivered through micro-needles inserted through the skin using their patented system. Through this process fine lines are reduced, skin texture enhanced, and sagging, loose skin tightened resulting in fewer fine lines, scars, and wrinkles.
INFINI is a new dimension in radiofrequency (RF) technology used to address sagging skin, wrinkles and changes in skin texture. It uses a 3-dimensional approach of delivering RF energy to create tissue volumization.
INFINI combines fractional radiofrequency technology with micro needling. As opposed to other radiofrequency platforms that treat the skin from the outside in, INFINI uses flow needle technology to deliver RF where it needs to be – the dermis. The dermis, our second layer of the skin, contains collagen – the supporting structure of our skin. By delivering heat energy from RF to the dermis, INFINI encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. The result is a little to no downtime, nearly painless procedure that can greatly improve wrinkling, scars, and skin laxity.
Did You Know…
side effects following INFINI are mild in nature, making this a minimal downtime treatment. For patients with very vascular skin, there may be mild pinpoint bleeding and a very small chance of bruise. More typically, the skin is mildly red for approximately 24 hours. The skin may feel slightly rough like sandpaper for 2-3 days. Many patients can resume their normal routine within a day.
INFINI Laser treatments don’t take long to complete, only requiring two or less hours to finish. 30 minutes of this time is spent waiting for the numbing treatment that’s been applied topically to work.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the practitioner administer the INFINI Treatment?
Using the patented INFINI handheld system equipped with fresh, sterile needles your practitioner will begin pressing the tool into the skin in a precise, safe manner. The device is then activated, delivering radio waves through the 49 individual needle tips in the applicator.
Is the INFINI Laser process painful?
No doubt the process sounds a bit intimidating, but our practitioners ensure that their patients are relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. 30 minutes prior to the start of the procedure the patients will receive a topical numbing agent that alleviates any discomfort. While the needles are microscopic some patients have reported that the sensation feels like a warm prickling sensation. Locations having deeper imperfections may experience greater discomfort than areas with surface imperfections.
How long after the treatment will I notice results?
The majority of patients have reported improvements in skin tightness as little as a week or two following their first treatment. Those areas of the skin that have deeper imperfections may require additional treatments for improvement to become obvious. The improvements should continue for the next 6 months as new elastin and collagen are built within the skin. You will also notice tightening continues for this same period.
How long will the results from the process remain?
While great improvements are possible with INFINI laser, the aging process will continue unabated. As time goes on the improvements you gained from your treatment will be overcome by the aging process, though the results are often visible for several years to follow. Taking proper care of your skin at home can greatly increase how long these improvements remain.
Will I have any downtime following an INFINI laser session?
The INFINI Laser system does not carry any inherent downtime following the procedure, though you may experience some redness to your skin with possible bleeding in pinpoint areas. The redness will fade after 24 hours, though some swelling may appear in a few areas. Treated skin often appears dry a few days after the procedure.
Will I need more than one treatment?
The number of INFINI laser treatments you may require will vary based on the depth of the imperfection you’re treating and the guidance of your practitioner. Most patients find the best results following three treatments, though in some cases more or less may be called for.
What skin conditions can be treated with INFINI?
Skin laxity and wrinkles are commonly treated with INFINI to achieve tissue tightening, collagen formation, revolumization of tissues, and improvement of skin texture. Not only is INFINI beneficial for skin wrinkles and tissue coagulation, but also helps many other skin conditions. Based on it’s use in thousands of patients in Europe, Asia and South America, INFINI RF technology is a helpful treatment not only for improving wrinkles and skin tightening, but also for scar remodeling. Traumatic scars and acne scars respond well to a series of INFINI treatments.
What areas can be treated with INFINI?
Many areas of the skin are amenable to treatment with INFINI. The face is the most common area of treatment, in order to correct wrinkles, scars or skin texture. However, neck aging and skin crepiness of the neck respond well to INFINI treatment. Vertical wrinkles of the decolletage area may be treated with INFINI for chest rejuvenation.
Is INFINI safe in darker skin types or tanned skin?
Yes. Because of INFINI’s unique smooth needling technology, RF energy from the device bypasses the skin’s surface and is delivered directly to the collagen-producing dermis. By avoiding treatment through the top layer of the skin, post-treatment pigmentation is greatly reduced. Unlike many laser and light technologies, INFINI is a much safer technology to use on tanned skin.
