Infini Microneedling is a breakthrough treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy through a microneedling process. By stimulating an increase in collagen production, this non-invasive treatment effectively tightens the skin and provides overall skin rejuvenation. Infini Microneedling can also be used as a spot treatment for a variety of skin concerns including acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Infini Microneedling can be used to treat a wide variety of skin problems and age-related complaints. We most commonly use it to:
An Infini Microneedling treatment is very quick, lasting less than 20 minutes in most cases. Dr. Ringpfeil begins the treatment by applying a topical numbing cream to ensure the patient’s comfort. Then she gently pinches the skin and positions the device above the targeted area. The needles quickly penetrate the skin and release radiofrequency (RF) energy. She continues moving the device across the skin until the entire area has been treated.
The Infini Microneedling applicator contains many tiny needles that are used to transmit RF energy directly into the patient’s dermis. These micro-injuries then stimulate the body’s natural healing response and increase the production of collagen in the area. In addition, RF energy heats the skin to a specific temperature that causes contracture of the dermis and an increase in collagen production. Because the RF energy is delivered into the deeper layers skin, there is no risk of injuring the top layers of the skin, which can occur when RF energy is delivered through the skin’s surface.
After the treatment, patients can resume normal activities immediately. There may be a slight reddening of the skin and some swelling, which many patients describe as being similar to a sunburn. Some patients will also experience a small amount of bruising that appears a few days later. Side effects will diminish on their own and makeup can be applied after 24 hours to conceal any lingering redness or bruising.
The results of Infini Microneedling are revealed gradually over the coming weeks and months. Most patients have noticeably tighter skin within 2 – 4 weeks of treatment. As collagen production increases and healing occurs, the skin will appear firmer and more youthful. Targeted concerns, such as scars and wrinkles, become less noticeable over time. Up to four treatment sessions, spaced at monthly intervals, may be required to achieve an optimal result.
Candidates for Infini Microneedling are those who want to treat specific skin problems or desire overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. Unlike other skin treatments, Infini Microneedling can be safely used on people with darker skin because there is no risk of hyperpigmentation with this treatment.
