Infini microneedling results at Philosophy of Beauty have changed what’s possible for non-surgical skin tightening in Toronto. Never before have the transformative, skin remodeling effects of microneedling (collagen induction therapy) been combined with radiofrequency in a harmonized system like this.
We’re glad you asked! Known as collagen induction therapy, (CIT) skin needling has a stellar reputation as one of the more effective ways to stimulate smooth, firmer collagen development in your skin.
CIT was initially developed as a method of minimizing scar tissue. Various microneedling pens, stamps, or derma rollers have been designed to deliver this therapy in the past decades. At Philosophy of Beauty, we offer microneedling treatments for the face and other areas where firm, smooth skin is desired. However, we’re over the moon about this new, combination device that adds active radiofrequency energy to an already powerful treatment.
High-frequency RF delivers controlled thermal energy through microchannels in the skin. These tiny, defined zones of fractionated coagulation (tightening) stimulate the acceleration of collagen and elastin fibers under the surface. Radiofrequency-stimulated heat is especially useful to trigger collagen, which becomes less abundant in your skin over time.
RF energy is carefully calibrated to an ideal temperature causing coagulation at a cellular level. The RF energy travels through the microneedles to activate cellular remodeling at precise depths. Each microchannel heals through the creation of collagen, strengthening skin thickness and elasticity during the natural process.
Stretch marks, and other hard-to-treat, textural skin damage is significantly improved with this innovation. The overall effect of thousands of tiny treatment “areas” can be a firmer, smoother overall complexion. Cellular turnover is increased to reveal resilient-looking skin with less age-related, or textural imperfections.
Infini’s insulated, gold-coated microneedles are remarkable because they’re sequentially inserted into the skin, row by row. Heat and mechanical stimulation are delivered through a patented process for double the cell regeneration power.
We understand when patients want to know, is skin tightening painful? Your comfort is our highest priority. That’s why we apply topical anesthetic to ease any irritation. The ComfortFlow process lowers surface resistance and makes the experience more comfortable for our patients. The microneedles are extremely fine and short, so the experience is often described as slight pressure, pinpricks, or scratching sensations. Infini uses very fine needles for radiofrequency delivery to the deep dermis, and most patients describe it as quite tolerable. Numbing cream applied to treatment areas and soothing aftercare help to reduce sensitivity.
The length of treatment time varies between people, depending on the exact facial zones you choose to cover. An average of 1 hour is needed and sometimes a little more.
During your initial consultation, we’ll listen to your skin concerns and assess you, then make a professional recommendation and let you know how the Infini technology can help. After you’re escorted to your comfortable, private treatment room, your practitioner will review everything you need to know and what to expect during the treatment process. We welcome questions, and you’ll understand what to expect before proceeding.
Your practitioner will pulse the device in a grid pattern over your skin, and target areas of particular concern. For instance, areas that show more severe scarring, wrinkles, or enlarged pores can receive extra attention. Once your treatment is complete, you’ll have specialized moisturizers and nutrient-dense skin serums applied, and you’ll receive at-home care instructions to support the skin tightening process before you leave.
We’re pleased to offer this unique technology and a multilayered approach to our clients. Patients and their concerns that qualify for micro-needling and radiofrequency combined can include:
- Those seeking non-surgical skin-smoothing treatment and minimal downtime
- All skin types
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Enlarged pores
- Wrinkles mild to moderate
- Laxity of jowls, neck, and décolletage
- Surgical or trauma scars
- Unwanted changes in complexion tone and texture
We love that this treatment doesn’t come with extensive downtime, but there are some mild effects to be aware of for a few days after. Infini before and after results are typically highly satisfying and don’t require the lengthy recovery time of surgery.
- Expect mild swelling and redness for 1-5 days. Reddish effects on the skin resemble a sunburn in most cases.
- Minor, pinpoint bleeding can be visible for the first day, and small bruises are rare.
- We’ll recommend you use gentle cleansers and stay away from retinol or lotions containing acids.
- You may be advised to avoid working up a sweat at the gym for 24 hours after treatment as well.
- Any makeup is permissible after 24 hours.
- You may develop a rough texture on the skin and mild flaking for 5-10 days. New skin cells will be revealed as older surface cells slough off.
- Subtle changes are often appreciated as soon as 1 week after micro needling RF treatment. However, you’ll create collagen for many months after the procedure.
We carry Biophora’s Oxygenetix, which is a pigmented foundation with breathable, hypoallergenic properties. It’s specially formulated to cover post-treatment redness. Ask us about the Oxygenetix foundation to see if it’s the perfect companion to your recovery.
We usually recommend a series of three treatments for long-lasting, optimal skin tightening. Treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart, to accommodate the natural rate of skin cell turnover.
Lutronic Infiniskin microneedling RF harnesses and amplifies your natural healing cycle to reduce blemishes and firm up your complexion. The powerful combination process results in firmer, smoother skin.
At Philosophy of Beauty, we pride ourselves on offering drug-free, chemical-free treatment that’s safe for almost any skin type. We love skin tightening with Infini, and our clients love it more.
They choose Infini with Philosophy of Beauty because all these incredible benefits can be achieved without hyperpigmentation risks, which is a concern that many patients with darker skin tones have.
Bonus* All the transformative work of this technology occurs without injuring or “ablating” the surface in any way. Discrete coagulative injuries are made through tiny channels in the dermis that can barely be seen, sparing the surface (epidermis) unnecessary harm. For you- that means rapid recovery.
This high-intensity focused radiofrequency (RF) needling treatment is useful to target:
- Signs of skin aging
- Skin laxity and sagging
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Lower face lifting
- Neck laxity
- Scarred and textured skin surface
- Enlarged pores
Infini works incredibly well alone, but our patients are all unique, and we excel in customized treatment combinations.
With your RF microneedling skin tightening, you may also choose to address deeper folds and volume loss with dermal facial fillers. Dermal fillers can help replace the youthful fat pads in cheeks and redefine bone structure. Their results last anywhere between 9 months and 2 years on average.
We also offer an extensive selection of the aesthetic industry’s most in-demand Laser treatments ranging from hyperpigmentation reduction, to resurfacing, and hair removal.
A favourite combination treatment with Infini is PRP. Platelet-rich plasma, combined with your Infini RF treatment, can accelerate healing dramatically and supercharge your results. Ask about this popular package.
