What Is 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.

Never before have the transformative, skin remodeling effects of microneedling (collagen induction therapy) been combined with radiofrequency in a harmonized system like this.
How Does Skin Tightening with Infini Microneedling Treatment Work ?
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.
How Long Does the Lutronic Infini Microneedling RF Treatment in Toronto Take?
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.
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.
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 ageing
- 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.
