The latest and greatest in radio frequency and microneedling technology all combined into one simple treatment. INFINI is a unique technology that’s main goal is to smooth wrinkles, address scarring, and tighten the skin. The treatment depth and energy levels enable a multi-layered approach for customized treatments, regardless of skin type or tan. The INFINI creates thousands of targeted coagulations zones under the skin using a combination of micro needles and radio frequency to deliver precise heat, rather than laser light, to the treated area. The discrete coagulative injury zones in the dermis spare the epidermis. The natural healing process, following the skin rejuvenation treatment, replaces the damaged zones with new collagen and elastin resulting in tighter, smoother skin. One of the things that sets the INFINI apart from other rejuvenation lasers on the market is it’s ability to treat any time of the year, on any skin type even when tanned, unlike most laser technology. Wilmington Dermatology professionals are able to customize treatment plans for specific needs to each individual patient and the recommended number of treatments can be addressed at your complimentary cosmetic consult.
What to Expect with INFINI
Prior to your first INFINI appointment we recommend coming into the office for a comprehensive consult. Wilmington Dermatology Center will take before pictures in order to track results over the treatment period. We take extensive measures to ensure that the treatment area is cleansed before using an injectable anesthetic to make you more comfortable during the procedure; once the anesthetic has had a moment to take effect we begin the INFINI procedure.
Full face and neck treatments are typically done in the same appointment and take about 30 minutes to complete. Depending on the size, location, and condition of the area being treated the treatment times may vary. Since INFINI is tailored to your desired outcome, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, you can be expected to experience redness that could last up to 48 hours. A cooling agent is provided immediately following the procedure as well as an extensive overview of side effects. All INFINI patients are provided with Dr. Rosalyn George’s personal contact information if any concerns arise outside of normal business hours.
For optimal results, it can take 2-3 treatments and full results take the standard 3-6 months to fully achieve (when the collagen remodeling is complete.) Results can last for a number of years depending on your age and skin condition.

History of INFINI
Radio frequency use in medical treatments has over a 70 year history. It has been used for multiple applications but the most exciting innovations recently have been in skin tightening. Thermage in 2002 was the first to market a device which was FDA approved to tighten skin and improve wrinkles. Since then, there have been a least a dozen devices come to market with similar technology, but the INFINI has since be noted as a game changer in Radio Frequency technology allowing for a controlled and precise treatment customized to each patient of every skin tone. INFINI is cleared with FDA approval for treatment of facial wrinkles.
The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and look brighter. The next 4 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal and the collagen is rebuilding itself. Since the INFINI is rebuilding your own collagen, the results vary depending on how you take care of your skin. See the results for yourself in these real experiences of INFINI patients. The INFINI laser is a unique, innovative, and one-of-a-kind procedure that has changed the world of radio frequency treatments. The INFINI is safe and effective for the treatment of:
- Fine lines and smoothing of the skin

Top 10 INFINI FAQ:

How is INFINI Dual different from other laser skin rejuvenation procedures?
- Not only is INFINI using radio frequency technology instead of laser technology, it allows us to Penetrate the skin to the level you would like to heat with microneedles and bypass the superficial layer that must stay cool and untreated. You can heat the deeper tissues to a much higher level with this technique, leading to greater collagen remodeling, collagen contraction, and stimulation. INFINI also allows you to treat on all skin types at any time of the year, without risk of pigmentation changes that can potentially occur with fractionated lasers.
