INFINI™ Skin Tightening
What is INFINI™ Skin Tightening?
Our Naples and Fort Myers patients often find that the passage of time can leave a variety of unwanted signs behind, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven texture, and acne scars. At Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa, one of our favorite and most versatile treatments, INFINI, can stimulate collagen production deep in the skin to fight these concerns. The INFINI device uses radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling in tandem, offering a precise approach that can target specific areas of the face and neck.
How INFINI Works
INFINI tightens and smooths your skin from within. Tiny microneedles deliver focused heat in the form of RF energy at multiple depths under the top layer of skin, guided by our staff. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process at a deeper level and encourages skin tightening, without damaging the surface skin.
The combination of RF energy and microneedling causes your existing collagen to contract, and it stimulates the production of new collagen, too. This makes INFINI uniquely able to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Wrinkles or sagging skin along the jawline
- Acne scars on the cheeks or forehead
- Loose skin and laxity in the neck
With customizable settings, we can use the INFINI system to target your precise goal, no matter your skin color, type, or condition. We can treat a single area, such as wrinkles around the eyes or the area around a scar, or the full face and neck.
See how INFINI’s tiny needles deliver radiofrequency energy below the skin’s surface to boost your collagen levels and rejuvenate your skin.
Skin Tightening Procedure
An INFINI procedure takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Our staff cleanses your face and applies a topical anesthetic to the target areas for your comfort. We then guide the INFINI device over the areas to be treated, at which point the microneedles penetrate your skin.
This occurs in quick bursts, with each lasting just a fraction of a second. Our staff usually takes at least 3 passes across the target areas with the INFINI device during a treatment session, adjusting depths between 0.5 millimeters and 3.5 millimeters to maximize collagen stimulation.
Skin Tightening Results
Results from an INFINI treatment will not appear immediately. The procedure triggers your body’s gradual healing process and encourages the production of collagen from the deeper dermis layers. As those deeper layers of skin heal, the surface will begin to smooth and tighten, and results will become apparent within a few weeks.
Some patients decide on multiple treatment sessions to achieve the best possible results. Of course, as with any cosmetic procedure, results vary from patient to patient.
What’s the recovery like?
Because the procedure includes the application of topical anesthetic, pain during recovery should be very minimal. Many patients liken it to the sensation of having a minor sunburn.
Patients are generally able to return to work and normal activities after a day or 2. Mild redness often appears but will fade within a few days and can easily be covered up with makeup or tinted sunscreen.
Am I a good candidate for INFINI?
It all comes back to your aesthetic goals. INFINI can be very effective for wrinkles, sagging skin, and acne scars, but you may also want to consider a liquid face lift for a comprehensive approach. It’s also common for patients to combine the precision of INFINI with the rejuvenating effects of BOTOX® or dermal fillers. Dr. Flaharty and our skin care specialists are happy to talk through all of your options and recommend the treatments that are best suited for you.
How many treatments will I need before seeing results?
As the skin heals and the surface tightens following treatment, you should begin to see results in a few weeks. To achieve optimal results, we’ll need to consider your individual goals, but many patients are happy with the results they see after 2 to 3 sessions. The final results of collagen stimulation will be visible within 2 months after your final session.
My skin tone is darker. Is INFINI safe for me?
Yes. Hyperpigmentation is sometimes a complication with other laser or energy skin treatments, but because INFINI bypasses the outer layer of skin, it’s safe for all skin tones. We also adjust the depth of the microneedles when treating more delicate areas of your skin, such as areas with melasma or pigmented lesions.
