What Is Infini™ Microneedling?

Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy (CIT) that leaves the skin glowing and rejuvenated. The goal of collagen induction therapy is to remodel scar tissue. In an office setting, a safe, specialized device with needles creates micro-injuries to enhance cell and collagen production. Infini Microneedling is a drug-free and chemical-free treatment that is safe for almost any skin type. When used in conjunction with radiofrequency (RF), microneedling delivers tolerable levels of heat through tiny needles in the skin. Each micro-injury will heal through the creation of collagen, strengthening skin thickness and elasticity during the natural process. This technique combined with radiofrequency creates better results due to the deeper penetration of the skin. Philosophy Of Beauty is proud to offer Infini Microneedling.

The Infini Microneedling treatment utilizes gold-plated micro-needles combined with radiofrequency to create foundational skin improvements. Radiofrequency heat is especially useful to trigger collagen stimulation, which becomes less abundant in your skin as you age. RF Microneedling gives you the best results without damaging your skin, which leads to a faster recovery than other minimally invasive procedures. This high-intensity and controlled radiofrequency treatment is useful in targeting the following concerns:

  • Signs of skin aging
  • Skin laxity 
  • Sagging wrinkles 
  • Fine lines
  • Lower face lifting
  • Neck laxity
  • Scarred and textured skin surface 
  • Enlarged pores

The length of treatment depends on the exact areas you choose to treat. Treatment is typically an hour, but treating larger areas can take more time. During your first consultation, your aesthetic professional will listen to your skin concerns and assess your needs and medical history, then make a professional recommendation and let you know how the Infini technology can help. In a private treatment room, your practitioner will review everything you need to know about Infini Microneedling and what to expect during the treatment process. You should feel comfortable asking questions or concerns you may have at this time. A personalized problem area map will be created and discussed so that areas of the skin with more severe scarring, wrinkles, or enlarged pores can receive extra attention during the procedure. 

Once your treatment is complete, our technician will apply specialized skin treatments and give you detailed at-home care instructions before you leave. If you are wondering what to expect after your treatment, here are some guidelines:

  • Expect some swelling and redness for 1-5 days. This minor irritation on your skin can resemble a sunburn.
  • Minor bleeding can be visible for the first day. Small bruises are uncommon.
  • You may develop a rough texture on the skin and experience mild flaking for up to 10 days.
  • Avoid the use of retinol or any skincare with exfoliating acids. 
  • Any makeup is permissible after the first day, or after you feel as though you have adequately healed.
  • You may be advised to avoid physical activity for 24 hours.

Subtle changes can be appreciated as soon as a single week after your Microneedling RF treatment, and you can look forward to full results months after the procedure. 

Infini Microneedling offers remarkable results alone. Depending on your needs, microneedling can work well with additional treatments. You may choose to address deeper lines and volume loss with facial fillers. Laser treatments can target hyperpigmentation or resurfacing skin and address hair removal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), combined with your Infini RF treatment, can accelerate healing dramatically and supercharge your results.

Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny needles to create small punctures or microchannels in the skin. These microchannels trigger the body’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production, and increasing blood circulation to the treated area. The process can help reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks, and can also improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.

Microneedling is also used to treat, alopecia and hyperhidrosis. Microneedling is safe and boasts minimal downtime, while also being a relatively inexpensive alternative to other forms of cosmetic treatments.

  • Improve the appearance of scars: Microneedling is used to improve the appearance of visible scars on the skin for many years. It also promotes collagen production and the creation of new skin cells, which in turn helps minimize the appearance and texture of scars and wrinkles.
  • Reverse sun damage and pigmentation: Microneedling reverses the effects of sun damage and discoloration through the stimulation of collagen production.
  • Reduces pore size: Microneedling causes pores to volumize and appear more shrunken or closed.
  • Improves the performance of skin care products: Microneedling helps quality skin care products penetrate the skin more efficiently.
  • Can be performed all over the body: Microneedling treatments help areas of the body which show stretch marks or acne scars like the abdomen, chest, back, and buttocks. All of these areas can be treated with microneedling procedure.
  • Natural-looking results: Microneedling uses your body’s own natural healing mechanisms which results in natural results and a natural-looking appearance.

The process of Microneedling is both extremely effective and well-tolerated by most patients. Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment, which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain. Invisible micro-injuries result in the increased cell, collagen, and elastin production without damaging the skin. After the procedure, your skin begins to volumize and thicken, thereby reducing the appearance of scars and aging signs.

Right after the treatment, you may experience skin sensitivity and redness that may last up to 48 hours. It is usually recommended that patients refrain from applying makeup for 24 to 72 hours after the procedure. It is also important to use sun protection and healing products in the days following the procedure.

The number of treatments recommended varies on each patient’s goals and needs. Collagen induction requires at least 3 treatments, while scar reduction typically requires between 3 and 6. Microneedling can be safely repeated about a month apart. Additional professional skin care is advised to maintain healthy skin and follow-up treatments may be required after the initial series is completed.

Microneedling has no negative side effects. The purpose of the treatment itself is to use the body’s own healing process to improve its appearance. Some patients experience minimal and temporary discomfort from the treatment. Most people will notice redness and mild swelling, similar to slight sunburn, for up to 2 days after the treatment. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within two weeks and results continue to show as beneficial changes occur in the skin for the following months. 

The risk of post-treatment infections is extremely low given that the minor injuries close quickly and the treatment is done in a sterile office setting. The risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation or further complications is minimal, but a possibility if you have any of the following in your medical history: 

  • Used Accutane, (isotretinoin) within the last 12 months
  • Have skin injuries
  • Have used radiation skin treatment within the last year 
  • Have herpes simplex in the area you want to be treated
  • Have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars 
  • Are pregnant
