INFINI RF Microneedling
INFINI RF radiofrequency microneedling is the next step beyond Fractional lasers. This system delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to break down acne scars that lie deep under your skin, whist sparing the top layers of the skin. INFINI is best suited for atrophic and rolling acne scars as well as pore size reduction. Results following INFINI RF are better than Fraxel laser, with a quicker recovery time.
Facts on INFINI: Breakthrough technology for acne scars and wrinkles.
INFINI is the latest generation fractional radiofrequency device
Unlike other skin needling systems this micro-needling device has insulated needles that can be adjusted to delivery scar breaking energy
Depth of delivery can be tailored according to the level of the scars
Atrophic and tethered scars may require up to 3.5 mm depth of penetration, whilst reduction of pore size can be achieved with only 1.25 mm
RF or radiofrequency is not laser, and hence will not affect the upper layers of skin
RF energy is concentrated deep in the dermal layer of skin- where scars lie
Downtime following RF is only 2-4 days, far quicker recovery than Fraxel or fractional lasers
It is the insulation of microneedles that gives INFINI the point of difference
Acne scars in all skin colours can be treated with insulated INFINI RF
Why is INFINI unique and how does it differ from laser treatment?
INFIINI represent the culmination of many years of development in the development of RF or radiofrequency. RF uses controlled heating through electrodes. This delivers energy to the deeper layers of the skin- sparing the upper layers. This translates to better acne scar remodeling than laser itself.
The marked difference between Infini and other RF microneedling is the insulation of needles. This targets scars that lie deep in the skin.
How does INFINI treat acne scars, and why is it better than fractional laser?
INFINI treats acne scars through a process called MFR or micro needling fractional radio frequency. This system uses fine needles to puncture the skin and deliver heat to beak down scars that lie deep under your skin. Remember, acne scars lie UNDER your skin, and the aim of treatment is to spare the upper layers of skin (epidermis) and target collagen 1-3.4 mm under the surface.
Fractional (and fully ablative lasers) all work by firstly treating the upper layers before delivering heat to the acne scars. This results in prolonged healing times and redness following laser therapy. INFINI microneedling does not treat the upper layers, and concentrates the energy where acne scars lie.
How long will it take to heal from INFINI RF?
2-4 days, depending on treatment levels. Healing times following INFINI are much quicker than with laser therapy as the upper epidermal layers are spared.
Following RF Microneedling with INFINI expect:
- First 24 hours – Swelling
- Next 24-48 hours – Decrease in Swelling
- Next 48-72 hours – Skin returns back to normal.
Is INFINI treatment painful?
There is a level of discomfort during INFINI treatment, depending on the settings and passes.
We minimize discomfort by topical cream.
How many treatments will I need to see an improvement in my scars?
As with all fractional devices, you will require between 2-4 sessions for optimal outcomes. You will notice an improvement with just one treatment.
4 sessions of INFINI, each session spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Can INFINI be used on all skin types and Ethnic colours?
Yes. Unlike laser, INFINI spares the upper layers of skin and treats the lower dermal layers. This means sides effects such as skin colour changes are exceeding rare following INFINI RF.
3 sessions of INFINI RF
How much do INFINI treatments cost?
Standard area – $990 (acne scars)
