It’s not unusual to want to hang on to your skin’s youthful appearance for as long as possible. When you age, your skin loses its elasticity and thins, causing it to sag, particularly in the neck area. This can be distracting and annoying when it becomes noticeable, but the good news is that it can be corrected. And what about those stubborn acne scars? They can be embarrassing and difficult to get rid of. A treatment like INFINI RF uses microneedling technology combined with radiofrequency energy to safely tighten and improve the quality of neck skin, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and leave you looking younger, healthier, and more refreshed. Curious to learn more? Here’s some helpful information about INFINI RF and how it may be the right solution for you.
Microneedling is a process that involves using tiny, sterilized needles to aid in collagen production. The INFINI RF wand uses 49 of these needles. RF stands for “radio frequency”, which is also used in INFINI technology. The radio frequency energy generated through the device makes its way into calculated depths of your skin to stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps to fill in gaps caused by acne scars and wrinkles. By working at its deeper layers, your skin will develop new collagen and elastin and you will start to notice improvement.
Areas of the skin that can benefit from INFINI RF Microneedling are the face, specifically for wrinkles, scars, and textural changes, the neck, and sometimes the decolletage area. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic is administered to prevent pain or discomfort. Best of all, RF microneedling is safe for all skin types, so anyone can try it!
The INFINI RF Treatment
If you are curious about INFINI RF treatment, schedule an appointment with Dr. Krant to learn more about the procedure and how it will work for your skin. You may be asked to refrain from taking blood thinning medications or drinking alcohol a few days to two weeks before the treatment. When it’s time to receive INFINI RF, Dr. Krant will apply the topical anesthetic to help the procedure be comfortable. Then, it’s time for the INFINI RF to work its magic. Dr. Krant will place the device on the areas of your skin that you are trying to correct. The INFINI RF microneedles penetrate your skin a few millimeters, so it may produce some blood, which is promptly wiped off. You may notice a slight stinging during treatment, which takes roughly 45 minutes to an hour, but this is completely normal. Based on your needs, Dr. Krant may recommend that you come in for one to three more treatments for best results. Not long after the procedure, you can carry on with your daily routine.
After INFINI RF Treatment
You will start to notice many changes in the treated area of your skin a few days following the INFINI RF treatment, but you may not notice the real results until about one to 3 months later. It takes a little while for your skin to produce the extra collagen needed to tighten and smooth the scars or wrinkles in your skin.
There may be a few side effects depending on how your skin reacts. Your skin will be a little red and you may feel some discomfort not long after you are finished with the treatment. Other side effects may include bruising. A couple days after treatment, you will start to notice temporary marks from the INFINI RF microneedles which fade with healing. You will also notice that the affected areas of your skin will feel rough for two to three days. It’s important to remember to leave your skin alone and let it heal on its own. At the four to five day mark, your skin may start feeling tight, but also a little dry. Avoid exfoliating and make sure you are using moisturizer. If you are noticing any strange side effects, aren’t seeing the results you want after one to two months, or if you have any general questions after treatment, be sure to get in touch with Dr. Krant.
INFINI RF may be the solution for you if you are looking to correct the sagging skin on your neck as well as acne scars or other areas that are giving you trouble. It’s a safe and effective option for those who want to see real results.
