Infini Microneedling Device - Patients ask, Dr. Ringpfeil answers
Please feel free to use the blog below to share information about Infini Microneedling Device or to ask Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil a question that might be of interest to others.
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.

What is the cost for RF Microneedling for face following with PRP ?
Our office does not perform this combination.
I had both profound and rf Genius (the new Infiniti) for under the chin and neck tightening to end up worse off. I now have “necklaces” around my neck that did not exist before these treatments, grid marks and no laxity. This guy completely destroyed my neck. Is there any procedure to remedy this? i’m so upset..I would have never done this if i were told about perm grid marks and any risk of my situation worsening. It’s been over a month since the Genius treatment and no improvement at all. Was told I need to wait 9 months which is not true. I waited 9 months for nothing after the initial Profound treatment when I knew it was not going to improve for him to tell me this Genius will DEFINITELY improve within 9 months. Nothing I read says anything about a 9 month wait, rather, I read if there’s no noted improvement in 2-4 weeks, it most likely WON’T. Anything you have to help damage from RF treatment? Have you seen this? I’d appreciate the help/feedback. Thank you.
While we do not offer Profound or Genius, I have no personal experience with worsenig laxity of skin after fractionated radiofrequency treatment and am surprised to hear about yours. Grid marks can occur with Infini and Genius and are temporary. Resolution can be sped up picosecond laser treatment, microdermabrasion and fading agents.
Collagen production starts to be noticeably 3 months after treatment and increases up to 6 months after treatment. It appears that you waited sufficiently for 9 months after Profound. Without examination, personal advise is impossible. I would be happy to see you in consultation to provide my advise. Please bring photos from before treatment.
Hello – will you be getting the infini machine in the Philadelphia office at some point? I want to get this procedure but live in the city. Thanks.
As of one week ago, Infini is available in our Center City office.
Hi in your opinion which treatment Activefx or infini rf do you see better results for rolling acne scars on cheeks? Thanks
Smaller rolling scars will do great with Infini but also improve with DeepFx. Larger ones are best treated by subcision.

Microneedling is offered a variety of spas. Our office does not provide this service. The only time we use microneedles is as part of Infini treatment, which is fractionated radiofrequency for skin tightening and scar treatment.
Thinking about cool sculpt but what happens to the extra skin?
I am almost 75, but my knees have gotten kind of saggy and I am wondering if cool sculpting would be helpful. At 5’6″ I weigh under 110, so weight is really not the issue.
I bruise easily, and wonder about recovery time, as well.
Neither Coolsculpt nor SculpSure are perfect for skin tightening after loss of adipose cells. You might consider Precision TX for skin tightening which is considered minimally invasive. We will soon expect to see some non-invasive technology on the market. There is nothing that works reliably yet.
Cost for one face treatment?
Infini for skin rejuvenation is $1200 for the entire face./ We usually recommend 2-4 treatments for best results.
Is this procedure safe for Asian skin?
Infini is safe for all skin colors including Asian skin. Nonetheless, we use pre-treatment with a fading agent, arbutin, for 4 weeks before treatment in everyone who has a Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian heritage.
Cost of Infini for neck and face, thank you! Linda
Current cost is $1500 for the combined procedure.
