Infini Microneedling in San Diego
Everyone has skin issues they wish they could erase; whether you suffered from acne as a teen and are embarrassed by the scars it left behind or you’re self-conscious of the worn-out look on your face caused by wrinkles and sagging skin. If you’ve tried every serum on the market to fade scarring, smooth rough patches, and erase fine lines without success, Infini radiofrequency microneedling may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Infini microneedling is a quick, minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles, thinner than a piece of hair, to deliver radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of the skin. The needles, along with heat energy, help to stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, more toned skin, and enhanced self-confidence.
Infini microneedling can be used to improve scarring, boost collagen, tighten loose skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, decolletage, chest, and hands. It can also be used to improve the appearance of stretch marks on other parts of the body.
How does Infini microneedling work?
Infini microneedling works by delivering radiofrequency energy to the dermis, the lower layer of the skin, with a series of ultra-fine needles. This creates controlled damage to the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. With a boost in collagen production, the skin takes on a tighter, rejuvenated appearance and texture. Because the radiofrequency energy penetrates into the deep layers of the skin where collagen and elastin fibers form support structures, it can produce faster and more dramatic results than traditional microneedling.
Infini microneedling works on all skin types and colors and makes an ideal treatment option for patients looking to:
- Minimize the appearance of scars
- Tighten loose and sagging skin
- Improve the physical signs of sun damage
- Smooth rough or dry skin patches
- Boost collagen production
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminish the appearance of large pores
- Increase the effectiveness of facial serums and creams
What to expect from an Infini microneedling treatment
About 45 minutes before your Infini microneedling session, your skincare professional will cleanse the treatment area and apply topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. During the treatment, the Infini device, which contains a cluster of microneedles, will be used to deliver radiofrequency energy to your skin, stimulating the natural creation of new collagen. An Infini microneedling treatment lasts just 20 minutes. After your session is complete, your skincare professional will apply a soothing hydrating cream before sending you on your way.
Once you leave our office, your skin will be slightly pink for a few hours. Due to the microneedles, the procedure does cause minor pinpoint bleeding in some patients. However, any bleeding that occurs will resolve immediately. Most patients are able to return their normal routine within a day. We recommend avoiding excessive heat and intense exercise for the first 48 hours. It’s also important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen (minimum SPF 30) to protect your skin. You can apply makeup 24 hours after your Infini microneedling treatment to mask any lingering redness.
What results can I expect from Infini microneedling?
Your skin will look dewy and plump following your first Infini microneedling treatment. However, because radiofrequency stimulates the skin to produce new collagen, the full effects of the procedure take some time. Typically, visible results are apparent six to eight weeks after treatment, though it depends on the speed at which your body heals. You can expect to see optimal results three to six months after you complete a full series of Infini microneedling treatments.
What is the downtime?
Directly following the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. Healing times vary based on the patient, pen position, and amount of passes and overlapping passes the specialist needs to take in order to treat the area. On average, a patient can expect to experience redness for 2-4 days, while some patients can heal completely within 24 hours.
