INFINI Microfocused Radiofrequency energy for skin tightening, scars, and stretch marks.
INFINI is the latest technological advancement in skin tightening with radiofrequency energy.
Research has shown that if you heat collagen fibers to a certain temperature (around 65˚ Celsius) you can stimulate true contraction of collagen and induce the body to lay down new collagen, in a process called neocollagenesis. In the past, devices such as Thermage and Venus Freeze have been used to treat sagging jawlines, heavy upper eyelids, and lax skin on the neck for this purpose. The problem with these “surface” devices was that it is very difficult to achieve this high temperature in the deep dermis of the skin, where collagen lives, while not burning the surface of the skin. The results were thus unpredictable and sometimes ineffective, as likely the collagen was not heated to adequate temperatures.
INFINI is a Patented Microfocused Radiofrequency delivery system that actually penetrates past the surface levels of the skin to heat, contract, and induce new collagen in precise deeper zones of the skin. Imagine taking a pair of damp jeans and throwing them in the dryer, the heat will cause individual fibers to contract, resulting in a tighter, smoother surface.
INFINI delivers radiofrequency through insulated microneedles which by themselves stimulate new collagen production through mechanical injury and healing. It is able to do this all while not heating or injuring the top of the skin—making the downtime minimal and safe for all skin types, and useable almost anywhere on the body for crepy texture or tightening.
How does INFINI work?
INFINI is the latest advancement in the treatment of Acne Scars and Skin Laxity.
The neocollagenesis INFINI produces also allows for a new and very effective way to treat acne scars. It provides 2 distinct possible advantages over Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing, currently the most common treatment for acne scarring:
- It does not generate heat on the surface of the skin, making it safe for even darker skin types.
- It can penetrate deeper, up to 3.5mm into the skin to induce healing in even deeper scars than Fraxel.
You will experience some mild redness and possible swelling for 1-3 days most commonly. This is a minimal recovery period during which our patients typically use a bit of coverup and continue their daily routines.
INFINI can be used to tighten loose skin on the neck and the jawline, lift and improve the texture of any treated area on the face or body, address crepy skin, tighten lax eyelid skin, and soften acne scars in even darker skin types.
We know if you heat the dermis to a certain temperature, you can induce the body’s own healing process to produce new collagen and tighten the skin. INFINI directly delivers this temperature to an exact depth.
There is no heat felt with INFINI as the depth of the thermal radiofrequency energy delivered is deep in the skin not near its temperature receptors. However, there is some discomfort with the needles that penetrate in the skin. Our patients find it tolerable after the application of numbing cream and icing.
The number of INFINI treatments needed really depends on the individual. Although some people notice improvement with a single session, we typically recommend a minimum of 2-3 sessions. Additional sessions may be needed to address laxity or acne scars.
