Acne scars can make your skin look severely unhealthy. Acne scars are the result of inflammation of acne blemishes. The acne pore swells, and a breakdown occurs in the wall of the pore. Some acne blemishes are minor and the scars created are shallow and heal quickly. Sometimes the contents of blemishes spill into the surrounding tissue and cause deeper scars, making the skin appear worn out. Various treatments, like Infini RF, use non-surgical approaches to address skin imperfections and defects.
Acne Scars and Skin Tightening with Magical Infini RF Treatment
Infini RF is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that can do every good to our skin that is needed. Radiofrequency and micro-needling help eliminate all apparent skin concerns ranging from acne scars to pigmentation, dark spots to uneven tone, and textures.
Micro-Needling: Why Is It Effective?
Microneedling, often referred to as derma-rolling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure in which thousands of tiny little needles are inserted into the skin’s surface via a rolling or stamping device. Derma-rolling works by creating microscopic wounds which induce collagen and elastin production. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is responsible for holding together connective tissue like skin, muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones. This lovely protein also keeps us looking youthful and healthy. Micro-needling is an incredible treatment for radiant, firm, and smooth skin. Unfortunately, it’s believed that collagen production slows down by about 1 percent per year after you surpass your mid-twenties and enter into the rapidly maturing phase of your life.
Despite how terrifying dermarolling may seem, it’s considered a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime. However, the recovery process does depend mainly on the length of the needles used. The longer the needles, the deeper the wound — the longer the recovery time.
Radiofrequency: Heat Energy to Heal the Skin
Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin. The treatment is a form of controlled skin injury. The damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles. Compared with chemical peels and dermabrasion treatments, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive. Read on to learn about the procedure, side effects, and benefits.
How Do Radiofrequency And Microneedling Work Together?
Microneedling uses a fine needle to create micro-wounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy. Radiofrequency waves are also used to take the treatment further ahead, making the treatment a “radiofrequency microneedling procedure.” The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling. Infini RF benefits the skin that grows back is thicker and smoother. This treatment can target:
- fine lines
- stretch marks
- the appearance of large pores
- acne scars
- scars from injury or surgery
- loose, sagging skin
Pros and Cons of Infini RF
The Infini RF energy stimulates much more collagen production and remodeling than traditional microneedling and radiofrequency alone. At the same time, the microneedles allow the RF energy to reach deeper layers of the skin with more precision than they otherwise could.
Because Infini RF microneedling treatments target the skin’s deeper layers, they’re effective for all skin types and tones, with hyperpigmentation risk in those with olive or brown skin tones (in experienced hands). Some doctors talk about Infini’s effectiveness in treating all sorts of acne scars and unveiling healthy-looking skin. It can come with minimal downtime, with side effects like mild redness and swelling.
Some of the cons of this treatment include typical skin injuries leading from the needles from the microneedling device, leaving temporary grid marks on the skin. They typically fade within a few days, but they can last up to a month or two, which can be distressing.
Infini RF is generally not done as a single treatment. Most people will need two to four sessions, six weeks apart, to see optimal results. All RF microneedling treatments risk “melting” hyaluronic acid-based fillers, particularly those placed in the superficial layers of skin. If you’ve had fillers, wait at least six months before trying heat-based facial rejuvenation treatments. People with skin conditions like active acne, eczema, or psoriasis should avoid any kind of microneedling. And if you’re prone to cold sores, the treatment can trigger an outbreak.
