High Intensity Focused RF Microneedling - INFINI skin - Smooth & Tight
What is Radio Frequency Microneedling?
RF Microneedling is a new technology that combines radiofrequency technology with Microneedling to address sagging skin, wrinkles, skin textural changes, and acne scarring. It uses flow needles to deliver heat energy RF to the dermis, the supporting structure of our skin, to encourage collagen growth and tissue tightening. The result is little to no downtime in a nearly painless procedure that greatly improves wrinkles, scarring, and skin laxity. Side effects include mildly red skin, bleeding, and bruising, with a possible sandpaper-like texture for 2-3 days. It's approved for treatment in all skin types and can be safely used in tanned skin in Hispanics, Asians, and African-Americans whereas laser/light technology may have limitations due to risk of hyperpigmentation.
What areas can be treated?
Wrinkles, scars, or textural changes in the face- brows, crows feet, upper lips, jaw line are the most common areas for treatment. Rejuvenation of the neck and chest that targets neck aging, skin crepiness and vertical wrinkles of the decolletage.
RF Microneedling can also treat buttocks, arms, knees, and legs. RF Microneedling is also commonly use to treat scars and acne scarring as well as overall skin rejuvenation.
Can RF Microneedling be combined with other treatments?
Yes. Botox/Dysport and filler treatments can be done 2-4 weeks prior to RF Microneedling to relax overactive muscles for wrinkle improvement and facial volume rejuvenation. RF Microneedling can be combined with IPL to treat photodamage/facial veins/rosacea as well as fractional laser skin resurfacing to improve collagen production.
What to expect?
Topical anesthesia is used prior to procedure, however mild discomfort can be expected. For best results, 2-4 treatments at 4 weeks apart is recommended. The procedure duration is approximately 15-20 minutes. Downtime is usually 1 day.
