Wanting a clearer and smoother skin is not an unusual desire. We all want to sustain and restore our youthful skin. Our skin loses its natural suppleness with age and becomes prone to damage. Over time, the accumulation of sebum and dead skin cells in the pores also plays a role in causing skin irritation and acne. Acne is of various types and leaves marks and scars accordingly. Acne is a frustrating skin condition that can demotivate you and make you conscious of your appearance. Treating acne is a struggle, and dealing with its scars is another stressful situation. However, today with new advancements and evolution in the aesthetic world, dealing with stubborn scars and skin aging has become easy. Skin treatments like Infini RF are worth mentioning to make the dream of scar-free and youthful skin possible.
Acne scars are embarrassing, but we can address these marks and many other skin issues with safe and minimally invasive skin procedures. You may find this very surprising that treatment can cause the skin to alter itself and reduce scar formation and appearance. But this is now possible with Infini Rf. However, whenever we get introduced to something new, we always have misconceptions and misinformation that lead us to believe different myths. In this blog, we will unveil some of these myths that have become a widespread belief among people and are nothing but wrong information.
Common Myths About Infini RF
Infini RF is an advanced skin treatment technology that combines the power of micro-needling and radiofrequency to cause remodeling in the skin layers and help with stubborn scar reduction and removal. So the question about how this procedure works and what we can expect from it can always cause some myths. Today, we will discuss the common myths and misconceptions related to Infini RF and try to shed light on the truth.
Infini RF: A Painful Procedure
This is nothing but a myth. Infini RF is not a painful procedure. Since it involves micro-needling, it can be uncomfortable for some people but not painful. Moreover, the radiofrequency waves use thermal energy to cause a remodeling effect in the dermis layer of the skin. But this heat energy does not cause any damage to the skin surface and is entirely pain-free. The micro-wounds are too tiny to hurt. However, they do hold benefits for the skin’s texture and appearance. These micro-injuries cause our skin cells to induce the healing process naturally, which positively affects the cellular performance of the skin.
The Infini induces the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis. At the same time, Radiofrequency tightens the skin and helps with skin texture, tone, and firmness. Thus, Infini helps with acne scars and tightens loose and sagging skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars and improve the skin’s overall texture.
Long Recovery Time
Unlike all the traditional and aggressive skin treatments, Infini RF is a safer option for scar reduction and skin tightening. Since this procedure is not aggressively invasive, the recovery time is not so long either. So this is just a myth that you require a long recovery time after undergoing Infini RF. Instead, there is no necessity for extended downtime. As this treatment triggers natural collagen production and skin remodeling, the results are not instant but are long-term. After completing the treatment, it may take 1 to 3 months to show the results. Moreover, as per your skin condition and scar appearance, you may be advised to get more than one treatment session. More stubborn scars take longer to reduce and disappear.
Not Safe for Darker Skin Tones
Infini RF does not cause any damage to the epidermis layer of the skin. Moreover, the depth of the needles penetrating the skin is also adjustable to ensure that they do not go past the dermis layer. Contrary to common belief, this procedure does not cause any damage to the pigment-carrying cells. The needles are insulated and, like other laser treatments, do not try to push heat through the skin, potentially damaging the pigment cells. Hence, Infini RF is safer even for people with darker skin tones.
Although the results are variable for every individual, they still are not short-term. Some factors that can affect the results of this treatment include the amount of collagen, overall skin health, smoking habits, age, tanning, sun exposure, health, and lifestyle. But at maximum, the results can last up to 3-4 years depending upon the collagen produced by the cells. The results are natural-looking and help the skin look smooth, youthful, firm, and clear. This is why Infini RF is an all-in-one skin treatment and is highly beneficial. Cutera Aesthetics offers the credible services of Infini RF to help its clients unveil clearer and scar-free skin.
