Microneedling has become a very popular procedure that stimulates collagen and elastic tissue remodeling, resulting in smoother and tighter skin. An innovative procedure called “RF Microneedling”, which combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, has become the latest go-to skin rejuvenation option. There are several available RF microneedling devices however, Infini Radio Frequency Microneedling brings innovative technologies together to address various cosmetic concerns simultaneously. This combination not only smooths the skin but also creates tissue volumization to reduce the signs of aging. Infini is unique in its delivery of this technology to the dermis, where collagen and elastin are made.
What is the difference between RF Microneedling and Traditional Microneedling?
Traditional microneedling uses a special device that creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s own natural wound repair cells to remodel collagen and elastic tissue. This results in smoother, tighter skin and can reduce fine lines and improve acne scarring.
RF microneedling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional microneedling procedure. By delivering the RF energy under the skin, RF microneedling allows for safe targeting of the deep dermis without the risk of damaging the skin surface. This allows for effective tightening of the skin and remodeling of scar tissue (such as in acne scars). Prior to this innovative technology, heating of the deep tissue required energy delivery through the skin surface, which limits the amount of energy that could be delivered to the deeper tissues. Too much energy could damage or burn the skin surface. RF microneedling delivers the energy from the tips of the needles, after they have fully penetrated through the skin surface.
What can RF Microneedling treat?
Infini can be used on the face, jawline, neck, chest, arms, and knees to restore smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. Some of the improvements that can be achieved with Infini RF microneedling include:
- Tighter skin that appears more lifted
- Reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Improved thickness and volume
- Reduced appearance of acne scars
- Smoother skin texture
- More even skin tone
What can I expect during the RF Microneedling treatment?
Infini treatments can take approximately 45 minutes, with appointment times lasting slightly longer. This is necessary because a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin for up to 30 minutes before the treatment begins.
How many treatments are needed?
Most patients will need 2-3 treatments for optimal results every about 3-4 weeks apart. However, results can vary from patient to patient depending on a variety of factors and severity of the underlying condition being treated.
What can I expect after the treatment?
The skin is typically red and perhaps slightly swollen for 1-3 days after the treatment; the redness is usually mild and looks like a sunburn. There is little or no discomfort after the procedure, and most patients can return to regular activity on the day after the treatment. Given that the procedure involves the creation of small microchannels in the skin, we recommend avoiding any makeup for at least 3 days after the treatment session.
Am I a candidate for RF Microneedling?
Lax, loose skin and wrinkles are two of the concerns that are commonly treated with Infini. The most common treatment area is the face, though some people seek this treatment to address crepey skin on the neck or chest area. Infini can be used on all skin types because the radiofrequency energy from the device bypasses the epidermis, and microneedles have no effect on skin pigmentation. This eliminates the risk of pigment changes after treatment. As such, Infini is approved for all skin types and is suitable for all skin tones.
This minimally-invasive technique may be ideal for you if you wish to reduce the appearance of:
- Acne or acne scars
- Poor skin texture
- Sun damage
- Deep lines and creases
- Mild sagging or jowls
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Skin Tightening
If you are healthy and free of skin infections, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, and understand what is possible with Infini, you may be an excellent candidate for this treatment.
