Is the INFINI Treatment Right For Me?

There are many options when it comes to anti-aging procedures. You may be familiar with routine fillers or lasers to give you a more youthful appearance, but the newest anti-aging beauty trend is here. INFINI is made with a unique technology that allows for controlled treatment depth and energy levels to enable a multi-layered approach for customized treatments, regardless of skin type or tone. Now we can provide a new solution that will keep you happy and referring your friends. This blog will break down if INFINI is right for you.


How Does INFINI Work?


INFINI combines fractional radiofrequency technology with micro needling. Different to other radiofrequency treatments that treat skin from the outside, INFINI uses flow needle technology to deliver RF where it needs to be, the dermis. The dermis is your second layer of skin; this is where your collagen resides. By providing heat energy from RF to your second layer of skin, INFINI encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. There is little to no downtime with this procedure, which can drastically improve wrinkles, scars, and skin elasticity.


What is Radiofrequency Technology?


Radiofrequency is electrical energy that the INFINI uses to heat the dermis in order to create new collagen. INFINI is uniquely able to deliver zones of energy, rather than one large treatment stamp, which allows for rapid skin healing.


What is Micro Needling?


Micro needling is the process of using extremely small, sterilized needles on the skin for collagen induction. Basic micro needling uses a stamp or roller not combined with light or energy devices. The INFINI micro needle tips conduct radiofrequency energy into the dermis, a great advantage over traditional micro needling practices.


Why You Should Choose INFINI


While the most common issues treated with INFINI are skin elasticity and wrinkles, INFINI is able to treat much more than that. It can help with scar remodeling, acne scars, and improving skins tone. The INFINI can also be utilized on your neck, chest, knees, upper arms, as well as your face. Additional benefits of INFINI:

  • Creates thousands of coagulation zones
  • Precise energy delivery
  • Automatic settings
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Minimal downtime of 24 hours


There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a cosmetic dermatology treatment. INFINI is the best choice for most patients looking to achieve a younger, tighter look because it can be customized to your needs. It can also be combined with other non-surgical skin rejuvenation options, such as cosmetic injectables. INFINI is sure to give you outstanding results that will last much longer than traditional cosmetic treatments and boost your confidence.

What Problems Can I Solve With Dermal Fillers?

As we age, our face begins to change, and we start to notice fine lines, wrinkles and a change in our skin tone. If you want to change the appearance of your skin and achieve a younger look, there is more you can do than just over-the-counter creams and at home remedies. Injectable Dermal fillers lift the skin, fill sunken temples, enhance facial contours, soften facial creases, remove facial wrinkles, plump thin lips and diminish under-eye shadows.


As time goes on, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. Facial muscles thin, and our skulls shrink; all factors that lead to facial volume loss. In addition, our skin loses its elasticity, which, when associated with volume loss, leads to sagging and wrinkles. Dermal fillers instantly enhance your look without surgery and with no downtime.


The Benefit of No Downtime


One of the most appealing aspects to dermal fillers is no recovery time associated with the procedure. The treatment can be done in as little as thirty minutes depending on what areas being treated. Dermal fillers are the very definition of a “lunchtime facelift,” and as such have been steadily increasing in popularity over the past few years.


The risk of any side effects of dermal fillers when administered by a professional is extremely minimal. The most noticeable side effect you will notice is mild redness and temporary swelling that quickly subsides.


Choosing the Right Dermal Filler


There are multiple dermal fillers available, so it is important to have a consultation before the procedure in order to determine which filler will be best for your needs. Dr. Cyndi will take into account what your concerns are and what your main goal is before recommending a customized dermal filler treatment plan for you. If you’re interested in a more complete facial rejuvenation, she will recommend other treatments to combine with the filler in order to give you a more satisfying and lasting result.
