INFINI® To Tighten Ageing Skin and Improve Acne Scarring

INFINI® To Tighten Ageing Skin and Improve Acne Scarring


INFINI® effectively targets two common concerns:

  • Loose Skin in the 35-50 year old age group
  • Acne Scarring

Treating Loose Skin

The INFINI® RF machine, is our non-surgical skin tightening machine of choice. Previously we used Thermage®, however, INFINI® has replaced it as the most powerful non-surgical method of tightening loose facial and neck skin available.   These treatments are highly effective for patients who are usually in the 40-50 year age range. Eventually, however, as we age the laxity of the skin and tissues becomes too great and RF treatments will simply not deliver the results that surgery will.  Therefore, it is very important to have a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this type of procedure relative to your own ageing.  As a rule of thumb, for skin tightening INFINI® is highly effective for persons (both men and women) up to the age of 50.


Improving Acne Scarring

INFINI® has been proven highly effective in the treatment of acne scarring to the face for all age groups both male and female.  Multiple treatments are required but the results in this group are permanent given that the acne itself is no longer active.


What is INFINI®?

INFINI® is a radiofrequency (RF) treatment that uses microneedling to deliver the RF deep into the tissues at many layers of the dermis.  The needling is completely sterile as the machine delivers the RF with single use disposable heads of 49 gold plated insulated needles which delivers thousands of coagulation zones over multiple passes. The advantage of the insulated needles is that it creates no thermal damage to the epidermis, reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation, while being able to deliver precise high energy heat to the dermis. Treatments are customised for each patient, depending on skin type, thickness, acne scarring and age.  Each area is treated three times usually one month apart at different depths of the dermis creating more structured collagen stimulation.  All this results in less downtime, typically 1-2 days looking a little sunburned. It is a safe treatment for darker skin tones and can be done anytime of the year.


Importantly, the results last for 1-2 years and many patients are so delighted with the results that they return for more treatments.
