INFINI is here!

There’s a new and exciting procedure out on the market and WDC is so excited to introduce the latest technology to all of our loyal patients!  We are now offering INFINI, radio frequency and micro-needling combined for smoothing wrinkles, addressing scars, and tightening skin.

How does the INFINI device work?

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.

What time of year can you receive treatments?

One of the many things that sets INFINI apart from treatments in the past, is the ability to treat any skin type at any time of the year, without the risk of creating unwanted darkening or lightening of the skin.  With all laser treatments, we recommend being treated only in the winter months on un-tanned skin to ensure we don’t cause any unwanted side effects.

Is there a lot of downtime?

While INFINI and Fraxel are similar treatments, INFINI has significantly less downtime than Fraxel.  The treatment typically takes 30 minutes to complete, depending on where we are treating, and aside from being red for the first 48 hours patients can begin wearing makeup and go back to their normal routine.

Where can you treat?

INFINI can be used on all parts of the body, on all skin types (including tanned skin), and at all times of the year. See our INFINI web page for some before and after images.
