Infini RF Improves the Texture and Tone of the Skin
It is very common for individuals to have concerns about the appearance of their facial skin. Aging and continual exposure to harsh environmental elements can easily cause damage to the delicate facial tissues. As a result, many people are left to deal with imperfections such as loose skin, wrinkles, and scarring. There are facial plastic surgery procedures which can enhance the appearance of facial skin, but many of our patients are looking for less-invasive treatment options. At Moradi MD we offer a number of laser treatments to patients seeking minimally invasive or non-invasive cosmetic solutions for improving the tone and texture of the skin. The newest of these is Infini RF laser treatment.
Infini RF laser treatment allows our San Diego patients to improve the appearance of facial skin by targeting wrinkles and scars and boosting collagen production to improve skin laxity. When Infini RF treatment is complete, patients can expect to benefit from skin that is smoother, tighter, and more refreshed. Those who would like to learn more about the advantages of Infini RF laser treatment are encouraged to contact Moradi MD to schedule an appointment.
Infini RF Candidates
Virtually any patient who wishes to improve the tone and/or texture of the skin is likely to be an ideal candidate for Infini RF. Most laser treatments apply energy to the top layer of the skin. These treatments can alter the pigmentation of the skin and are not usually ideal for patients with darker skin tones. However, the Infini RF treats the dermis of the skin, not the epidermis or outer layer of skin, making this a safe and effective option even for patients with dark or tan skin.
Infini RF is especially appropriate for patients with poor skin laxity, wrinkles, or acne scars. By stimulating collagen, Infini RF can improve skin laxity and enhance skin volume. This will diminish signs of wrinkles and facial scars. Infini RF effectively treats acne scars, a common problem that does not always respond well to alternate cosmetic treatments. Patients interested in learning more about Infini RF for acne scars are encouraged to consult with Dr. Moradi to discuss their goals.
How Does Infini RF Work?
Infini RF is a unique technology that combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling. Microneedling is a process that uses multiple microneedles to penetrate the skin so that electric energy can be delivered directly to the second layer of the skin (the dermis). Because our team is able to control the depth of treatment, we can reach many layers of the dermis, making this a 3-dimensional treatment.
The microneedles of the Infini RF device are so small that they are unlikely to cause discomfort. Still, to ensure that patients remain comfortable throughout treatment, a numbing solution will be applied to the facial skin prior to treatment. The Infini RF device will then be passed over the treatment area. As the microneedles penetrate the skin, the collagen in the dermis is heated by the radiofrequency energy. This heat encourages collagen production and causes the treated tissues to tighten.
Infini RF Results – What to Expect
The skin may appear slightly red or irritated immediately following Infini RF laser treatment. However, this is normal and no cause for concern. Patients are unlikely to experience any other discomfort. Within 24 hours most patients are able to return to their usual activities. Oxygenetix makeup can also be worn 24 hours after treatment, so if the skin does appear irritated it can be easily concealed.
Because Infini RF laser treatment activates the body’s own natural healing processes (collagen production), the results of the treatment will not be immediately apparent. However, in the weeks following treatment patients will notice that their skin appears firmer and smoother, and that wrinkles and acne scars become less noticeable. While even a single treatment can improve the tone and texture of the skin, we often recommend a series of two to four treatments, each spaced approximately four weeks apart, for optimal results.
