WHAT IS WRINKLE REDUCTION OR
There are a variety of factors that happen simultaneously that contribute to appearance of wrinkly, ageing skin. Including the thinning out of the dermal layer and increase in moisture loss, decrease in oil production, shrinking of fat cell, and in particular, damaged collagen, making skin less supple. The changes in the support structure of dermis cause the skin to wrinkle and sag. This leads to more noticeable wrinkles and sagging loose skin.

Novel High Intensity Focused RF device for consistent results and low downtime. Infini can be used at any time of the year and on any skin, as Infini does not directly affect the epidermis.
Why Include Wrinkle Reduction Treatments In Your Practice?
Patients spend billions of dollars each year on over-the-counter creams, lotions and cleansers to treat wrinkles and marks on the face. In fact, according to Medical Insight, over the next five years, skin rejuvenation (wrinkle reduction and more) platform revenues will expand by 8.1% per year, on average, from $324.4 million in 2012 to $478.5 million in 2017. North America represents the largest regional market for skin rejuvenation devices. It will remain the largest market through 2017, with growth of 7.1% per year as the economy recovers and aesthetic practitioners acquire new devices to keep up with current technology.
The largest % of the US population is between the ages of 25-64 years of age… Which means that those needing wrinkle and skin rejuvenation treatments will only continue to grow.
There are a variety of treatment options for wrinkle reduction, from over the counter beauty products to surgical options such as a face-lift and everything in between. Many products work by hydrating or swelling the skin, temporarily providing a short term reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. As soon as the swelling effect is gone, the original wrinkles return exactly as they were before. Only surgical and energy based treatments, such as fractional laser treatments and the latest High Intensity Focused RF, provide an effective way to treat wrinkles for long term results.

Lasers And Energy Based Treatments
Lasers and energy based treatments provide physicians the most diverse treatment options, ranging from light laser peels which are similar to micro-derm abrasion, through more aggressive fractional treatments which can require more than a week of downtime. Most physicians understand that the correlation between length of recovery is directly related to potential outcomes, the longer the downtime, the more extreme the results. However, Infini's innovative technology is changing downtime/outcome dependency because of the unique way it's energy is delivered deep into the dermis.
How Do Lasers And Energy Based Devices Work?
They work by stimulating the body’s natural healing response to create controlled damage and then generate a healing response to rebuild collagen and internal structure. Only INFINI delivers treatment inside the dermis sparing the injury at the surface making recovery comfortable and much faster.
