Advances in technology have allowed cosmetic professionals to address some of the signs of aging in ways that just were not possible a few decades ago. They have been able to harness different forms of energy and convert these into facial revitalizing tools.
INFINI™ skin tightening is an example of modern technology being used to address cosmetic issues. The INFINI™ device uses radiofrequency technology to tighten up sagging skin. It can be used to remove wrinkles as well as smooth out the texture of the skin. The unique three-dimensional approach to delivering RF energy can increase the volume of a person’s skin. This makes them look and feel younger.
How Does the INFINI™ Device Work?
The INFINI™ skin tightening device is so powerful because it is a unique fusion of two proven cosmetic tools. These are radiofrequency technology and micro-needling. Most radiofrequency devices work by delivering their energy to the outside of the skin. This minimizes how effective they can be.
The INFINI™ device is different in that it uses flow needles to deliver radiofrequency energy to the dermis. The dermis is the second layer of the human skin. This layer of skin plays a vital role in the overall structure of a person’s skin. It is in the dermis that collagen is produced. Collagen is one of the building blocks that your skin needs to be flexible and to look young.
This device can be precisely set to deliver RF energy to predetermined parts and depths of the dermis. It encourages collagen production on a level that is not found in other RF skin treatments that only affect the outside of the skin. The result is that with very little time and discomfort, scars, skin laxity and wrinkles start to disappear.
Understanding RF Technology
When most people think about RF energy, they think about radio waves. And there is a similarity between the two, since they both happen on a similar frequency. However, radiofrequency energy is a form of electricity. When the electric energy is delivered to the skin, the target area is heated.
For collagen to start to grow, the treated area must be heated to around 60°C. With the new collagen comes tissue tightening. Excessive skin laxity is removed, and that tissue becomes remodeled. This leaves a person with a more youthful and revitalized appearance.
Micro-needling is the other side of the equation. In traditional micro-needling, tiny, sterilized needles are introduced into the skin to encourage collagen production. With the INFINI™ skin tightening device, more than 40 microscopic needles penetrate the skin’s surface. Once the surface is penetrated, controlled levels of radiofrequency energy are delivered to the dermis, encouraging faster collagen production. The combination of micro-needling and RF energy produce a powerful effect that neither could produce on their own.
