The Lutronic Infini RF Microneedling is an FDA-cleared device that combines advanced radio frequency (RF) technology with innovative microneedling therapy. The cutting-edge device emits heat energy via very fine needles that are pressed into the skin. As the heat energy reaches the the dermis – the thick tissue layer beneath the skin’s surface – it prompts a regenerative process. The heat energy triggers the skin to manufacture more collagen that, in turn, gives the skin greater structure and elasticity. Because Infini RF Microneedling device works on the lower layers of the skin, the skin’s surface layer (the epidermis) is not affected. This translates to more efficient healing.
The device’s accuracy makes this procedure highly customizable and treatments can be adapted for individual needs and concerns.
During a treatment, the skin is gently punctured with the Infini RF’s gold coated microneedles. To optimize results, the depth of penetration and the intensity of the heat energy can be precisely controlled. Patients can expect to feel a slight pricking sensation as the insulated microneedles enter the skin. Most consider this temporary discomfort to be tolerable.
There are very few side effects associated with the procedure. After the microneedling session, the treatment area will be red. However, patients can expect this mild symptom to subside within 24-36 hours.
A typical Infini RF Microneedling treatment can be done during a lunch hour appointment. Although improvement can often be seen after one treatment, most patients benefit from multiple sessions, typically spaced about 4 weeks apart. The frequency and intensity of treatments will depend on the condition of the patient’s skin and the cosmetic goals.
Infini RF Microneedling treatments are a minimally-invasive option for those who would like to improve the overall texture of their skin. Unlike chemical peels or laser resurfacing treatments, Infini RF Microneedling is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. The procedure offers:
Infini RF Microneedling is a safe and effective option for most individuals looking to revitalize their skin. The ideal candidate for Infini RF Microneedling has one or more of the following aesthetic concerns: mild to moderate skin laxity, fine lines or creases, or scarring. Pitted and rolling acne scars and chickenpox scars tend to be responsive to microneedling treatments.
