Say hello to your favourite angle: all of them.



What is INFINI?

INFINI is a novel skin rejuvenation device which combines microneedling with high-intensity focused radiofrequency. Energy is delivered directly inside the skin to coagulate collagen, resulting in contraction and the production of new collagen. INFINI is used to treat fine wrinkles, improve skin tone, decrease sebum production in oily skin, and minimize the appearance of pores and scars. INFINI is a long-term tissue rebuilding treatment, not a temporary tissue tightening device.

How does INFINI work?

The High-Intensity Focused Radiofrequency (RF) is delivered directly into the skin via thin insulated microneedles. Insulated gold coated microneedles spare the epidermis from thermal damage to work directly within a specific layer of the dermis, allowing for precise control of fractional coagulation. Radiofrequency energy in some medical devices is used in short intense pulses that oscillate through the skin to heat targeted tissue.

How does radiofrequency (RF) work?

When electricity meets resistance, heat is generated, creating an “electrothermal reaction”. Similarly, when RF meets impedance in the skin, heat is also generated. Skin impedance is resistance that the RF frequency meets in the skin when being applied during treatment. Impedance can vary between individuals depending upon factors including gender, race, age, hydration, etc. Impedance can also vary in the same patient in different body areas.

Pre-Treatment Visit Preparation:

  • patients with a known history of acne breakouts or HSV 1 and 2 lesions should begin prophylaxis treatment with an anti-viral at least 1 day prior to treatment session.
  • on the day of treatment, patients should thoroughly wash their face and not apply any make-up, lotions, sunscreen or any other cosmetics to the skin prior to arriving at the office.

Post-treatment Care:

  • mild crusting may be noted 1 – 5 days following treatment. Crusts will disappear naturally in several days. Do not pick at crusts.
  • avoid harsh topical products and alcohol-based toners for two weeks. Your normal skin care regimen may otherwise be resumed in 24 hours.
  • avoid vigorous activity, excess heat, or sun exposure for at least one week.
  • avoid sun exposure of first day and beginning on the second day, apply a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • allow 4-6 weeks between treatments.
  • best results are seen after 2-4 treatments

Anticipated skin reactions:

  • redness and swelling are normal reactions immediately after treatment and diminishes over 1-3 days
  • pin-point bleeding should stop within minutes after application, discomfort within a few hours
  • crusting begins to appear 1 – 2 days after treatment and sloughs off in 3 – 5 days.
  • mild irritation, itching, and burning may occur and usually resolves within 1 day.
  • Skin will appear brighter with less oiliness in 3-7 days
  • Fine wrinkles and skin laxity begin to improve by 1 month following treatment
  • Continued improvement of fine wrinkles, pores, scars, and skin laxity are seen 1-3 months following treatment

When will I see results after INFINI?

Some patients see results very quickly, but most patients recognize improvement 3 – 4 weeks after the first treatment. As new collagen is deposited, Due to new collagen development, optimal results will be observed from 3 to 6 months following the final session.

Contraindications to treatment with INFINI include the following:

  • poorly controlled diabetes mellitus
  • immunosuppression
  • allergy to anesthetics
  • pregnancy/breast-feeding
  • skin cancer or premalignant moles
  • vascular disease or history of bleeding disorders

Possible complications of INFINI include:

  • acne flare up or herpes simplex activation
  • irritation, itching, burning sensation or discomfort lasting more than a few hours after treatment
  • infection
  • textural irregularity (white bumps) or track marks of raised skin areas surrounding locations where needle pins were inserted into skin. Bumps gradually resolve within 1 to 3 months without further intervention.
  • hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Transient skin pigmentation changes may resolve within a few months but may last longer. In rare cases, skin pigmentation changes may be permanent.
  • burn, blister, superficial erosions or scarring (rare)
  • erythema ab igne, an acquired persistent reticulated erythematous and pigmented rash of the skin produced by prolonged or repeated exposure to moderately intense heat or infrared radiation
  • contact dermatitis or irritant dermatitis


FAQs about INFINI RF Microneedling

Is It true that one Infini treatment is equal to 3 traditional micro needling treatments?

Yes - Infini is an energy-based device which incorporates both micro needling and radiofrequency. Radiofrequency paired with the micro needling creates more collagen stimulation and remodeling than micro needling alone. The radio frequency energy is used to reach deeper into the dermis with more precision than if radio frequency were used alone.

Do Infini treatments hurt?

Patients generally report only mild discomfort with Infini treatments. When compared to CO2 lasers many find the infini more comfortable. To maximize patient comfort a topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment.

Is topical numbing cream a good option for pain relief?

Yes, pain relief can be controlled with a topical numbing cream. A topical cream with lidocaine is applied for approximately 20 minutes prior to treatment to provide comfort.

I want to have dermal filler injections as well as Infini, which should I do first?

While this depends on the patient’s goal and the type of filler, we typically recommend that Inifni treatments be done two weeks prior to filler placement. However, deeper Inifini treatments should not impact the filler. In some cases, the results of Infini may decrease the amount of filler needed.

How long does it take to see the results of an Infini rf treatment?

You can expect to see some changes soon after the procedure. Your body will continue to rebuild collagen for several weeks. To optimize results, it is typically recommended to do 3 treatments for the best results in order to see new collagen growth. For full results it can take anywhere between 4-6 months when new collagen growth is complete.

When having multiple Infini rf treatments how many weeks are necessary between each session?

It is recommended to space treatments apart every 4 weeks to promote a continuous inflammatory response for more collagen production. Your skin will produce new collagen for up to 6 months. To maximize your results the series should be done every 4 weeks, ideally within a 3-month time frame.

How much downtime is required following an Infini treatment?

There is minimal downtime. Initially there is redness and swelling for 24-36 hours. We use the Lase MD in conjunction with all our Infini treatments to treat the top layer of the skin with customized serums to treat the skin immediately. The specific serum used is based on the patients’ needs and goals. A biocellulose mask is applied with the serum immediately after treatment to decrease downtime and redness. Makeup can be applied after just a few hours.

I had Infini done on my face 6 days ago and I now have track marks in the areas that were treated; is this permanent?

To avoid track marks, we use the Lase MD after all Infini treatments, which resurfaces the top layer of your skin. We’ve found that by using the Lase MD, we can not only treat the outer layer of your skin but also reduce any downtime of the Infini to prevent track marks which can last up to 2 weeks.

Which moisturizer should I use after my Infini treatment?

Use a moisturizer that is non-comedogenic to avoid skin pore blockages and unwanted acne. If a patient has a history of acne, it’s possible to break out after Infini.

Can an Infini treatment provide the same results as a lower face and neck lift?

No, Infini is a minimally invasive skin treatment that stimulates collagen production. It cannot lift and tighten skin and underlying tissues in the same way as a surgical procedure.
