Microneedling is a method used to treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots(brown spots),pigmentation issues, stretch marks, loose skin, and also to reduce pore size and improve skin texture. Microneedling involves using sterilized, very tiny needles for the purpose of inducing collagen production.It is also referred to as CIT , or Collagen Induction Therapy.
RF MICRONEEDLING WITH INFINI™ BY LUTRONIC AT RENOVOMD
Lutronic Infini Microneedling Device with RFA (Radiofrequency Ablation) is the most advanced skin rejuvenation technology available. A new technology for wrinkle reduction through 3D Volumization.
The INFINI™ is clinically proven to increase collagen production for smoother more refined skin, regardless of the season.
- All Skin Types (included Tanned Skin)
- Dramatic Wrinkle Reduction
- Quick and Easy Recovery
- High Patient Satisfaction
This is a 2-in-1 fractional Radiofrequency system which has two treatment modalities, MFR (Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency) and SFR (Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency), in one platform. It was created with patient care in mind able to treat anyone with a desire to bring out the best in their skin.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM INFINI MICRONEEDLING WITH RFA?
The Infini microneedling device is most effective for:
- Men and women with early neck and jowl laxity who wish for nonsurgical tightening
- Men and women with mild to moderate facial wrinkling and hyperpigmentation
- Men and women with acne scarring, most specifically boxcar and rolling scars. Infini has become the”standard of care” for acne scarring.
- Anyone with excessive sweating in the armpits (hyperhidrosis).
HOW DOES INFINI MICRONEEDLING COMPARE TO LASERS OR CHEMICAL PEELS?
Infini microneedling and aggressive CO2 laser or chemical resurfacing can essentially accomplish very similar results. They all target the deeper dermis layer of skin, with the intent of stimulating collagen and elastin formation. But when comparing the three treatments, it all comes down to complications and recovery time. The Infini microneedling device selectively targets this dermal layer of skin resulting in minimal injury to the superficial dermis and epidermis. CO2 laser treatments and the use of deep chemical peels general remove the top layers of skin just to get down to the dermis. Because of this, recovery from laser and chemical resurfacing runs the risk of post procedure hyper and hypo-pigmenation and also involves at least a week of recovery. The Infini microneedling device with RFA spares the superficial layers with no post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and recovery time is only 1-3 days. You can even put on makeup in 24 hours!
IS MICRONEEDLING PAINFUL?
Not at all!Your microneedling will apply a numbing agent to the area to be treated so that you will not experience anything but a very mild stinging sensation as RF energy is pulsed into your dermis.
With previous skin rejuvenating technologies, microneedling was not associated with RF energy; instead, it utilized a type of roller or stamping device that was not as effective in stimulating collagen release. With the new INFINI™ handpiece, RenovoMD specialists can deliver RF energy in predetermined amounts through almost microscopic-sized needles to treat a variety of skin conditions with minimal to no discomfort to the patient.
INFINI™ RF FOR WRINKLE REDUCTION AND SKIN TIGHTENING
Combines Microneedling and Radiofrequency
Innovative in its ability to deliver two treatment techniques with one device, the INFINI™ offers the latest in skin rejuvenating technology employing applications of radiofrequency for the purpose of tightening loose, wrinkled skin, shrinking enlarged pores, eliminating acne scars and restoring radiant health to skin damaged by excessive sun exposure. The INFINI™ will also help people suffering from hyperhydrosis, a condition in which sweat glands constantly overreact to external and internal stimuli.
By integrating radiofrequency instead of laser energy in its treatment method, the INFINI™ can safely be used on all types of skin. In addition, its “flow needle technololgy”, or microneedling technique, targets skin problems by treating the dermis, which lies underneath the epidermis. The dermis is where collagen is produced and released, one of the most important chemicals necessary for optimal skin health. Heat energy in the form of radiofrequency activity is delivered by the INFINI™ directly to the dermis, which stimulates production of collagen and enhances tissue strength. This type of fractional radiofrequency technology minimizes the risk of any thermal damage occurring to the skin and provides patients with a virtually painless, skin rejuvenating procedure with 1 to 2 days of downtime or recovery discomfort.
WHY RADIOFREQUENCY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES SUPERIOR SKIN REJUVENATION RESULTS
As a form of electrical energy, RF energy is able to heat collagen to a specific temperature that initiates the production of new collagen without harming the skin. When fresh collagen spreads throughout the dermis, remodeling and tightening of the skin occurs, which naturally smooths wrinkles and scars. Moreover, INFINI™ is unlike other RF skin devices regarding its polarity. While most are considered “monopolar” or “bipolar”, INFINI™ is “multipolar”, meaning that this unique device offers bipolar RF technology improved by multiple needle electrodes that have been paired for increased efficiency.
INFINI™ Is also categorized as a “fractional” skin rejuvenating device because it safely delivers numerous zones of RF energy to the skin instead of one treatment area. This facilitates skin healing and allows patients receiving INFINI™ Treatments to see immediately stunning results.
Another great benefit of INFINI™ is its ability to complement other skin improvement procedures such as dermal filler injections and intense pulse light therapy. The microneedling RF technology is so advanced that combining it with other skin rejuvenation treatment methods is a safe and highly effective way to further encourage collagen production and provide even more amazing results regarding elimination of wrinkles, scars, sagging skin and other skin issues.
FAQS ABOUT INFINI™ BY LUTRONIC
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH THE INFINI™?
While the face is area most frequently treated by INFINI™, it also works to correct “crepiness” of neck skin and wrinkling below the neck caused by aging, overexposure to sunlight and tanning beds. When combined with other skin rejuvenation methods offered by RenovoMD, neck and upper chest skin presenting sagging and wrinkling problems can be restored to youthfully smooth, taut skin.
I AM HISPANIC AND HAVE DARKER SKIN. IS INFINI™ SAFE TO USE ON MY SKIN?
INFINI™’s cutting-edge microneedling technology makes it safe to use on all skin types. Because it delivers RF energy to the dermis rather than the top layer of the skin, the chance that darker skin will be affected by areas of hyperpigmentation is greatly minimized. This makes it ideal for African-American, Hispanic and Asian patients who are not considered good candidates for laser or less advanced RF treatment methods.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED TO IMPROVE MY SKIN CONDITION?
Typically, patients electing to undergo INFINI™ treatments can safely receive one treatment every four weeks until desired results are achieved.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
Recovery following an INFINI™ treatment session involves no downtime. You will be able to resume your normal schedule while experiencing only mild redness of the skin and a slim chance of bruising. During the first three days after treatment, many patients report a “sandpaper” feel to their skin that disappears within seven to 14 days.
Experience the amazing ability of INFINI™’s RF and microneedling technology to rejuvenate damaged, wrinkled or scarred skin with one treatment session in our RenovoMD facility. You’ll love the fresh, smooth luminosity of your tightened skin and enjoy the fact that INFINI! treatments allow you to continue with your daily activities without experiencing the discomfort associated with surgical cosmetic procedures.

Micro Needling with the Eclipse Micropen
What is automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color. During the procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. MicroPen Elite”‘ also creates micro-channels that allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
Micro Needling Benefits
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen Elite can improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
What areas of the body can be treated with MicroNeedling or CIT?
MicroPen Elite can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
How is the procedure done?
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen Elite. Your skin care professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen position based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen Elite'” is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Is there any downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System”‘ post-treatment can speed up the healing process.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
“The Eclipse Micro Pen Elite”‘ is a fantastic treatment! I was in no pain, and I could go back to work the same day. After a few days, my skin was so soft and the texture had improved dramatically.” — Kathleen Y.
