You may have been hearing more and more about microneedling as a popular and minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. Recently, it has received much praise for its rejuvenating effects on the skin. At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to providing patients with the most effective skin treatments available and recently made the decision to purchase the INFINI™. For individuals interested in this non-surgical procedure, we now offer the INFINI™ radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device.
Unlike more common, less sophisticated devices; the INFINI™ allows microneedling at different depths and the use of thermal energy through radiofrequency (RF). Essentially providing many treatments modalities at the same time to give better results that are more significant.
Some of the benefits of INFINI™ radiofrequency microneedling treatment include:
- Firms skin by stimulating the body’s healing response
- Promotes natural growth of new collagen and elastin fibers
- Safe for all skin types
- Requires no surgery or downtime
- Sessions last one hour
These new fibers can provide smoother, tighter, more volumized skin that creates a more youthful complexion. In addition, INFINI™ can diminish the prominence of acne scarring and wrinkles. Although most patients do not describe this treatment as uncomfortable, the skin may become flushed or shed a small amount of blood. Makeup may be applied the next day to help cover any continued redness.
Before receiving an INFINI™ treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to prevent discomfort. Then, a cluster of ultra-fine needles will make microscopic penetrations along the skin’s surface in the areas being treated. While lower face and neck are the most common areas treated, we also treat crepe-y upper arms and wrinkly skin above the knees.
Improvements in skin tone and texture are typically apparent within one to two weeks after treatment; however, the most significant results commonly develop over a matter months.
