Micro Needling Radio Frequency (Infini) is an innovative way to tighten and smooth the skin. Dr. Stephen Nogan believes in the science of this device which combines micro-needling with radiofrequency heat. Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre was the first office in Ohio to offer Infini treatments and when it comes to skin care treatments, experience matters.
Number of Treatments
3 Infini treatments are recommended
The face, neck, décolletage, arms and knees can be treated with Infini.
45 minutes-1.5 hours
The Infini recovery is about 3-4 days.
During the Infini treatment, patients report varying degrees of discomfort. Most individuals tolerate the procedure with just a prescriptive topical anesthetic cream and Tylenol. There may also be slight swelling, bruising and some break-out.
How much does Infini Cost in Columbus, Ohio?
Infini RF is a series of treatments that work with the body’s natural healing process. During Infini, we are stimulating the collagen building properties of the skin. When the microscopic needles pass through the skin, Infini RF applies heat directly to the skin’s collagen layer. Micro Needling Radio Frequency (Infini) delivers the heat directly to the dermal layer where tightening occurs.
You can expect to see changes as soon as you have the procedure done. Your body will continue to rebuild collagen for several weeks following your treatment. End results are typically complete at 6 months. Multiple treatments will maximize patient results. The best results are produced by three separate treatments spaced about a month part. The number of recommended treatments and the scheduling of these treatments are determined by the initial condition of the skin and the desired outcome.
Is Infini safe?
Infini is a very safe procedure and the FDA has approved Infini for skin tightening in the face. Micro Needling Radio Frequency (Infini) is also being used on other body areas with good results.
How long is downtime with Infini?
Infini recovery is quite minimal with three to four days of visible reaction. This reaction can cause skin to progress from pink to red and finally bronze. All of this can be covered by using a mineral product. This mineral camouflage is available for purchase at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre. There may also be slight swelling, bruising and some skin break-outs. Response varies per patients depending on the level of treatment and desired outcome. Sun avoidance following an Infini treatment is a must. The best sunscreen options will be discussed during your Infini appointment.
What areas can be treated with Infini Radio Frequency?
We have seen great success with Infini on the entire face, neck and chest. Some patients may choose to do a full face and neck treatment, some patients may choose to only have a focal area treated.
