How does the treatment feel?
You will feel heat and some pressure. The treatment is tolerable but your physician will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Compared to CO2 lasers, many find the INFINI more comfortable.
How long is the downtime?
There is an initial redness and swelling which substantially subsides after 24-36 hours. It can take up to a week for this to completely resolve. Most people resume normal activities within 48 hours.
How long will my results last?
Unlike many other procedures, this has long lasting results since it is your own body that is at work. The effects could last for years.
How long before I see results?
You can expect to see some changes as soon as a day or two after the procedure. However your body will continue to rebuild collagen for several weeks after, so you will see improvement over the next six months.
How long does the treatment take and how many treatments will I need?
A treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and up to an hour. Your physician will discuss your goals which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just one treatment.
What are wrinkles and what causes them?
A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of the aging process, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration and various other factors. The most common type of wrinkles that treatments are sought out for include forehead wrinkles, face wrinkles, neck wrinkles, and chest wrinkles (decollete).
