Infini: Your Alternative to a Facelift

Tina West August 30, 2018 0 comments 8

Facelift Alternative

The formation of jowls and loose, saggy skin in the mid and lower face are all tell-tale signs of aging. Many women and men would like to address these concerns, but are hesitant to go under the knife and have a traditional facelift.

Fortunately, there are a number of non-surgical treatments for facial rejuvenation that use radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser energy. However, the stay-powering of these devices is often limited, and many are replaced within a few years by more advanced technology.

Although this has not been the case for Infini RF, which utilizes a unique combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to tighten and lift the skin. It has superseded a number of similar modalities, like Ultherapy, because it offers a more customized treatment and greater efficacy and reliability.

Here’s what you need to know about Infini RF as an alternative to a facelift.

What Is Infini RF?

Infini RF is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency for an alternative to a facelift.

More specifically, its microneedling electrodes puncture the skin’s surface at precise depths to deliver radiofrequency to the dermis.

As a result, Infini applies radiofrequency with more predictable results than when radiofrequency (like Thermage) is done alone.

How Does Infini RF Microneedling Work?

Infini RF causes microinjuries and controlled thermal damage that initiate a wound healing effect. Consequently, new collagen is stimulated and skin is remodeled from the inside out.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Infini RF?

Infini RF is a very inclusive treatment and is safe for all skin types.

It’s often recommended for patients that want to correct mild to moderate sagging that does not warrant a facelift or for individuals that have more significant laxity, but do not want a surgical procedure.

It is also ideal for men and women that may have already had a facelift and want to tighten and touch-up certain areas non-invasively.

The Customized Benefits of Infini RF Microneedling?

Infini RF provides a more customized procedure that’s tailored to each patient’s anatomy and skin thickness. It also offers multiple depths of penetration, power, and frequency settings that can be adjusted by the provider throughout an Infini RF treatment.

This feature provides excellent tightening and lifting, but also reduces the risk of collagen breakdown and fat loss that can occur with other treatments.

How Do Infini RF Results Compare to Other Skin Tightening Treatments?

A full face Infini RF treatment can cover up to 50,000 collagen stimulation zones, while other skin tightening treatments typically cover 20,000 collagen stimulation zones.

This difference likely means that Infini RF will produce more significant lifting and tightening than other therapies.
