VENN PRODUCT FOCUS – LUTRONIC INFINI
Infini by Lutronic – non-surgical cosmetic treatment
Infini by Lutronic is ideal for non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the face and neck. The device uses a combination of micro-needle technology and radio-frequency energy, which can be precisely targeted to problem areas on the face and body.
The treatment works by, in effect, damaging the reticular dermis, which triggers the body’s healing processes, including growth of new collagen and a thickening of the skin, all without causing injury on the surface.
Infini is ideal for treating aesthetic issues on patients with ageing, sagging, wrinkled skin, acne scaring and skin with pigmentation. A great advantage is it can be used on people with active acne and on all skin types, including darker skin and tanned skin, and can help to effectively reduce the appearance of acne scars over time, leaving the skin smoother and clearer than it was before.
By volumising dermal tissue and smoothing out wrinkles and sagging skin, Infini can help restore elasticity and freshness to the face without medical intervention – making patients feel at their best again. As it’s non-surgical, patients can carry on with their daily lives almost immediately after treatment.
Why is Infini safe for darker skinned patients?
Infini protects the epidermis where pigment cells are because it’s needles are insulated. Also, the depth can be adjusted so the heat from the RF stays in the dermis, below the most superficial layer. Other devices are either not insulated, or try to push heat through the skin, potentially damaging the pigment cells.
How does the Infini compare to laser treatments for active acne and acne scars?
The Infini is safer than a laser, with less downtime, and no risk to the eyes. As stated above, dark skin patients can be treated more safely with the Infini when compared to a laser because a laser will heat the upper layer of skin, the epidermis. Lasers carry the risk of pigment changes in the skin, these can be either lighter or darker. Results from Infini appear to be better than lasers for acne scars. An added benefit is that elastin is also produced (elastinosis) in response to a RF treatment, this is not the case with laser resurfacing treatments.
What other areas of the body can be treated with Infini?
The neck and decollete is usually treated in conjunction with the face. Other possible treatment areas include skin laxity on the arms, knees, stretch marks and scars from surgery. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating can also be successfully treated with Infini. With appropriate training and the correct settings Infini can be used on all areas of the body.
"With Infini the epidermis is safely protected from the heat. This allows for a very safe treatment for all skin types. With over 1000 treatments, I have seen no long term complications. No skin atrophy, no unintended fat loss, no scarring, and no pigment changes" Dr Steven F Weiner, Facial Plastic Surgeon
How Infini by Lutronic works
The treatment is a combination of micro-needling technology and radio-frequency energy. Treatment depth can be varied, but the system targets the dermis, below the skin’s surface, using gold-coated needles to deploy the energy.
Together, they create tiny thermal coagulation zones. This in effect damages the deeper levels of the skin, causing it to create new collagen and improve thickness and elasticity, all without visible damage to the skin’s surface.
How long does a treatment take?
With an experienced physician, face treatments will last approx 45 minutes, add another 15 mins for the neck area.
