Don’t Let Loose Skin be a Distraction
- Posted on: Aug 15 2020
For ages, we have associated youthful attractiveness and exuberance with a long neck and firm jawline. Why? Because these are the very characteristics that we lose as we get older. Historically, if a person wanted to tighten up the skin in this area and restore nice angles to their jawline, they would have to do so with surgery. Facelifts and neck lifts continue to be popular options for some people, but not for everyone. In our practice, patients have the option of addressing loose skin with INFINI microneedling, a technologically advanced technique that achieves amazing results.
What is INFINI Radiofrequency Microneedling?
The INFINI radiofrequency microneedling system is a sophisticated combination of technology and technique. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which numerous tiny needles contained on a small applicator tip are pressed against the skin. This creates hundreds of microchannels in the skin. Microneedling alone provokes a profound healing response in the dermis that involves increased collagen production. Radiofrequency on its own is commonly used to pass through the epidermis to heat deeper layers of tissue, also for collagen stimulation and remodeling.
The INFINI system, by combining microneedling with radiofrequency energy, reaches depths of tissue not accessed by either technique alone. The device can accurately target three different levels of the skin to achieve more dramatic tightening, firming, and smoothing.
INFINI can be performed on multiple different areas of the body, including the:
- Chest and décolleté
- Upper arms
- Lower thighs above the knee
Benefits of INFINI Radiofrequency Microneedling
Dr. Flaharty performs extensive research to select the very best devices for patients who want nonsurgical treatment options. He has found INFINI to be “infinitely better” than alternative modalities due to the many benefits it offers.
The INFINI system can safety treat all skin types and tones. There is little to no downtime needed to recover. Patients may feel a slight prickly sensation after their appointment. This is due to the microchannels and deep absorption of radiofrequency energy. Mild swelling and redness may also occur. This can last a few days but is typically not substantial enough to prevent normal activities. For those who want to address multiple problems at once, INFINI can also be combined with other treatments, including Botox.
There is no reason to settle for less than your cosmetic best. To learn more about INFINI radiofrequency microneedling, call 239.415.7576 and schedule an appointment at our Fort Myers, Naples, or Bonita Springs office.
