My patients frequently ask for my best skin care advice. Here in sunny Naples, Florida, because we spend so much time outside, people seem to be interested in convenient, non-invasive options to refresh their appearance and erase the signs of sun damage and photo aging.
At our medical spa, Infini RF has become a popular treatment for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and tightening skin. This radiofrequency system delivers energy through microneedle electrodes, with minimal pain and no downtime. The procedure works to target tissue below the surface of the skin to turn back the clock on aging.
I frequently recommend Infini treatments when I meet patients in consultation, but a lot of people out there are also researching it online. I’ve answered many questions about the treatment on RealSelf.com, a popular forum where patients discuss plastic surgery and medical spa treatments.
Here, I’m sharing some of the most common questions about Infini RF that I’ve answered on RealSelf. You can find brief answers below, but be sure to visit my website and RealSelf for more details.
What makes Infini RF different?
Infini is unique in that it combines microneedling with radiofrequency. These tiny microneedles are used to precisely and accurately deliver the radiofrequency deep into the skin, all while sparing the skin surface from becoming too hot. As a result, patients experience skin rejuvenation, including smoothing of fine, crepey skin, lifting of mild to moderate sagging, and improvement in acne scars.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, patients require a series of 3 Infini treatments (once a month for 3 months).
Which microneedling product would be best for tightening skin and alleviating wrinkles – Skinpen or Infini RF?
Infini combines 2 technologies into 1 procedure: microneedling and radiofrequency. The microneedles are used to precisely deliver the radiofrequency into the skin. SkinPen does only microneedling, so it typically provides less dramatic results.
