Skin tightening is a sought-after solution for many individuals aiming to maintain a youthful appearance. Our skin naturally loses its elasticity and firmness as we age, leading to wrinkles and sagging. While numerous treatments that promise to address these concerns are available, not all deliver the desired results. Among the various options, RF Microneedling with Infini has emerged as a notable method in the skincare industry. This treatment combines the principles of microneedling with radiofrequency technology, offering a unique approach to skin rejuvenation.
The Science Behind Skin Tightening
The science behind skin tightening is rooted in our understanding of the skin’s structure and its natural aging process. The skin, our body’s largest organ, is composed of multiple layers, with the dermis being one of the most crucial for maintaining elasticity and firmness. Within the dermis, collagen and elastin are two primary proteins responsible for the skin’s youthful appearance. Collagen provides structure and firmness, while elastin ensures flexibility and resilience.
As we age, the production of these proteins diminishes, leading to a decrease in skin elasticity. External factors, such as sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and lifestyle choices, can further accelerate this decline. The result is the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
Skin tightening treatments aim to counteract these effects by stimulating collagen and elastin production. The goal is to restore the skin’s natural elasticity and reduce the appearance of aging.
RF Microneedling with Infini™ by Lutronic: The Solution
RF Microneedling with Infini™ by Lutronic represents a significant advancement in skin rejuvenation. The INFINI™ system stands out due to its dual-action approach, combining the benefits of radiofrequency (RF) with the precision of microneedling. This combination addresses various skin concerns, from wrinkles and enlarged pores to acne scars and sun damage. Furthermore, the system relieves those with hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating due to overactive sweat glands.
One of the distinguishing features of the INFINI™ system is its use of radiofrequency energy, as opposed to traditional laser energy. This choice ensures the treatment is safe for all skin types, reducing the risk of adverse reactions or complications. The system’s “flow needle technology” further enhances its efficacy. This microneedling technique targets the dermis, the skin layer responsible for collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein that maintains skin elasticity and firmness.
When the INFINI™ system is activated, it delivers heat energy through radiofrequency directly to the dermis. This targeted application stimulates collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s structural integrity. As a result, the skin becomes firmer, more elastic, and rejuvenated. Additionally, the fractional nature of this RF technology ensures minimal thermal damage to the skin. This design choice not only enhances the safety profile of the treatment but also provides a more comfortable experience for the patient. Most individuals report minimal discomfort and a swift recovery period of 1 to 2 days post-treatment.
RF Microneedling with Infini™ by Lutronic differentiates itself from standard microneedling due to its radiofrequency (RF) energy integration. RF energy heats collagen to a specific temperature, promoting the production of new collagen without skin damage. The skin tightens as new collagen forms in the dermis, reducing wrinkles and scars.
The INFINI™ system’s polarity sets it apart. While many RF devices are monopolar or bipolar, INFINI™ is multipolar. It uses bipolar RF technology with multiple needle electrodes, enhancing its efficiency. This multipolar approach ensures consistent and effective RF energy delivery.
Additionally, INFINI™ is a fractional device. Rather than targeting one treatment area, it delivers RF energy to multiple skin zones. This method promotes faster skin healing and immediate results for patients.
INFINI™ also complements skin treatments like dermal filler injections and intense pulse light therapy. Its advanced microneedling RF technology, when combined with other treatments, boosts collagen production. This combined approach effectively addresses wrinkles, scars, sagging skin, and other skin concerns, making INFINI™ a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation.
The MicroPen Elite is versatile and suitable for various body parts, including the face, neck, arms, legs, abdomen, and back.
To begin the procedure, a sterile cartridge equipped with 12 micro-needles is affixed to the Eclipse MicroPen Elite. The skincare expert then applies a topical gel over the skin’s surface. This gel acts as a lubricant, ensuring the pen glides smoothly. The professional then adjusts the pen to a setting tailored to the patient’s needs. The pen is pressed against the skin with precision and moved consistently across the treatment area, ensuring every section is addressed.
Patients often liken the sensation of the MicroPen Elite to the feeling of sandpaper moving across the skin. While the procedure might sound daunting, the rapid movement of the pen’s tip enhances comfort, especially compared to other microneedling devices.
The duration of the procedure is relatively short, typically 15 to 30 minutes, contingent on the treatment area’s size. Post-treatment, it’s common for patients to observe a pronounced redness in the treated area. The duration of this redness varies, influenced by the pen’s setting and the number of passes made. Most patients experience redness for 2-4 days, though some recover within a day. Professionals often recommend the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System to expedite the healing process.
When To Expect Results
Following the treatment, patients often observe an instant radiance or “glow” to their complexion, a testament to the immediate effects of the procedure. However, the actual transformation unfolds gradually. Over the subsequent weeks, the skin undergoes noticeable changes, reflecting the treatment’s deeper impact on skin health and rejuvenation. These enhancements are attributed to stimulating collagen, a vital protein for skin elasticity and firmness. As the skin’s natural collagen production process is invigorated by the treatment, improvements in texture, tone, and overall appearance become more pronounced.
RF Microneedling with Infini™ offers a promising approach to skin tightening, combining the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency power. The results speak for themselves, from the immediate post-treatment glow to the long-term skin elasticity and firmness enhancements.
