As part of the natural aging process, skin loses elasticity. Excessive sun exposure, pollution, smoking and other external conditions can accelerate the process. Loss of elasticity leads to skin sagging and laxity. Non-surgical skin tightening procedures have become more popular in recent years because they provide a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures for correcting skin laxity and improving skin quality. At Dermatology Centers of NEPA, we offer the newest and most effective treatments to reduce the progression of skin laxity to gently return the skin to a more toned, lifted, and youthful appearance.
INFINI™ RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING
Infini Microneedling is a breakthrough treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy through a microneedling process. By stimulating an increase in collagen production, this non-invasive treatment effectively tightens the skin and provides overall skin rejuvenation. Radiofrequency Microneedling treatments can be used to improve sun damaged skin on the face and neck, skin laxity, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Infini Microneedling can be used to treat a wide variety of skin problems and age-related complaints. We most commonly use it to:
- Minimize acne scars
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten loose skin
- Improve skin elasticity
- Correct uneven skin tone and texture
How does the treatment feel?
You will feel heat and some pressure. The treatment is tolerable but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Compared with CO2 lasers, many find the Infini more comfortable.
How long is the downtime?
There is an initial redness and swelling which substantially subsides after 24-36 hours. It can take up to a week for this to completely resolve. Makeup can be applied after twenty-four hours and patients can return to regular activities immediately.
How long will my results last?
Unlike many other procedures, this has long lasting results since it is your own body that is at work. The effects could last for years.
How long before I see results?
Patients may see improvements in skin tone and texture within a week or two after the procedure; however the most impressive results are progressively seen several weeks to months after the treatment as new collagen continues to build. Over time, the skin looks tighter, smoother, more even, and radiant.
How long does the treatment take and how many treatments will I need?
A treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and up to an hour. Your physician will discuss your goals which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just one treatment but typically it takes 3 treatments to achieve optimal results.
