3 Dimensional volumisation for skin tightening, scar remodelling skin rejuvenation and more
Infini is a new dimension in fractional radio-frequency (RF energy acts on your tissue to induce heat) system by Lutronic. This unique 2-in-1 RF technology creates fractional micro-insertions in the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) by its numerous micro-needles and induces dermal coagulation by radio frequency emission from its needle end. This mechanism stimulates collagen and elastin fibres without potential thermal damage in the epidermis layer.
According to Dr Peter Laniewski, what makes the technology used by the Infini system so unique is its gold-coated insulated microneedles that penetrate the skin sequentially resulting in a more comfortable treatment for the patient. The insulated needles are a key innovation of the INFINI. Unlike older RF devices the Infini delivers the RF precisely creating consistent coagulation zones and therefore predictable results.
With both practitioner use and patient care in mind, this new single device is perfect for all skin types, even tanned and dark skin types!
The MFR (Micro-needle Fractional Radiofrequency) hand piece using insulated needles creates precise and controllable thickening zones deep within the dermis (the second layer of the skin); with 3-dimensional delivery of energy, maximum skin volumisation is achieved while providing dramatic skin tightening and skin rejuvenation effects. More importantly Infini offers a more comfortable procedure thanks to the fast action flow needling technology which stages the needles in the skin row-by-row for reduced skin resistance. There is very little thermal damage to the epidermis and the sequential action of the needles also ensures there is less damage and therefore less downtime.
The new depth control also allows for customized treatments of delicate areas, such as cheekbones, forehead and can deliver multiple passes. This depth control is far superior than other modalities as the practitioner knows exactly where the thermal damage will occur.
Infini provides a 2 in 1 approach in fractional RF therapy providing two levels of treatments; one is that it offers skin remodeling through micro-needle insertion and the other option is the skin resurfacing through superficial micro-ablations, all in one platform.
The Infini from Lutronic is the result of years of research and is ideal for the treatment of;
Q. Will the treatment be painful?
A. The Infini was designed purposely to make the procedure more tolerable for patients, thanks to its patented flow needling technology. Each and every person has a different pain threshold however topical anaesthetics will be offered for increased comfort. Compared to other Micro-needle Radio Frequency / Superficial Radio Frequency devices, many have claimed the Infini to be much more comfortable.
Q. How many treatments will I need?
A. Depending on your goals this will have to be discussed with your doctor, but many do see results after just one treatment.
Q. When will I be able to attend my day-to-day routine again?
A. The micro-needles deliver the RF energy precisely, so there is virtually no thermal damage to the epidermis, as a result MFR effectively lowers the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in dark skin types. This means you should be able to return to your day-to-day routine straight away. In some cases redness may be experienced up to two days but is easily managed.
