INFINIskin RF is an ideal skin rejuvenation procedure for people who want to avoid aggressive lasers or invasive plastic surgery options. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of INFINI with the patient and help them make an informed choice. Some providers may also present INFINIskin before and after photographs during the consultation.
The first concern of a responsible provider will be to educate the patient about INFINIskin in all respects, and improve their confidence about the treatment. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide INFINIskin RF skin rejuvenation procedure to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.
What are INFINIskin RF Before and After Photographs?
Before and after photographs in case of INFINIskin RF (radio frequency) skin rejuvenation procedure refer to a set of images belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure with a satisfactory outcome. The set includes photographs taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when all the treatment sessions are over and the full effects of INFINIskin RF are visible. The treatment provider will take care to ensure that INFINIskin before and after images are obtained with the proper consent of the patient and presented before new patients in a discreet way. As part of the standard protocol, the provider may keep the patient’s identity undisclosed. The purpose here is to explain to new patients about the potential effectiveness of INFINIskin RF skin rejuvenation procedure and help them make the right decision.
Many new patients may have concerns whether an innovative, non-surgical RF procedure such as INFINI will be effective or not, and whether it will help them achieve their personal cosmetic goals. Some patients may require only limited treatment in the face, while some others may need more extensive treatment in the face, neck and décolletage areas. Some patients may like to combine INFINIskin with other non-surgical or plastic surgery procedures, depending on their requirements. In each case, the patient will be better placed to make a decision when they have access to INFINIskin before and after photos.
Especially for non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures such as INFINIskin, it is important for a patient to know clearly what the treatment can or cannot do for them, and whether it can fulfill their personal aesthetic desires. Therefore, an experienced provider will prefer to present INFINI before and after photos to help the patient stay realistic about the results. This simple effort will mitigate the risk of any disappointment or misunderstanding occurring for the patient at a later stage. Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and other cities across the landscape for INFINI.
The treatment provider may choose to present INFINI before and after photos on their practice website or social media channels to increase awareness about the procedure. Digital technology has changed the game for this industry, plastic surgery, and a host of others. Now patients can check out other INFINI patients to see how this surgery turned out on them. They can do this no one else being the wiser. Now a patient can see what this surgery will look on them which gives any patient the opportunity to make a more poignant decision. The clarity of these website pictures are fantastic and this means the patient does not have to rely so much on what the staff and the surgeon tell them.
INFINIskin high intensity focused RF technology is designed to restore younger looking skin and mitigate imperfections in selected areas of the body. The procedure does not involve plastic surgery, and can be performed with minimal discomfort and downtime. It employs a 3-dimensional approach to deliver RF energy for tissue tightening and skin volumization. Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive INFINI treatments from board certified plastic surgeons at MBody.
INFINIskin treatment primarily focuses on reducing skin laxity and minimizing the effect of wrinkles and fine lines. It induces natural collagen formation in the deeper skin layers, leading to tissue tightening and re-volumizing of the tissue. In addition to improving the aging signs, it also enhances skin texture and restores the skin’s natural radiance. INFINI RF technology has been widely employed for scar remodeling as well. Both acne scars and traumatic scars usually respond well to a series of INFINI treatments. A number of areas in the body are amenable to INFINI treatment. The most common area of treatment is the face. The procedure can gently correct wrinkles, scars and skin texture in the facial areas. Aging signs and papery skin in the neck area responds well to INFINI RF energy. Patients who want chest rejuvenation can also benefit from this treatment because it can effective improve vertical wrinkles in the décolletage area.
Combining with Other Procedures
The INFINI procedure can be effectively combined with advanced laser skin resurfacing procedures as well as injectable treatments. To treat facial wrinkles and fine lines caused due to dynamic facial muscles, the treatment provider may first administer Botox injections about two to four weeks prior to INFINI. Once the overactive muscles are relaxed, the RF energy procedure may be used to complement the results in other areas of the face and neck. Fractionated laser resurfacing techniques can also be effectively performed in conjunction with INFINI procedure to promote significant collagen regeneration and improve the wrinkles. Both treatments can help to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the face, neck and décolletage for more harmonious looking outcomes. Dermal filler injections such as Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, Restlane and Radiesse can be combined with INFINI for facial rejuvenation. To reduce fine lines around the eyes, INFINI procedure can be followed Belotero Balance filler injections. Restylane or Juvederm injections may be used along with INFINI treatment to rejuvenate area around the mouth and create more defined lips.
Dark, Tanned, or Ethnic Skin
INFINI can be safely used even for darker skin types as well as ethnic skin. The innovative micro needling technology of INFINI allows the RF energy to bypass the skin’s surface and directly penetrate the collagen producing dermis layers. Unlike many laser technologies, INFINI is a much safer option for tanned or dark skin. Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and other communities across the landscape for INFINI RF treatments.

INFINIskin is an innovation in radio frequency (RF) technology to address sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and imperfections of skin texture. People who want to avoid invasive plastic surgery procedures can choose this high intensity RF technique that produces significant improvement in the skin condition in a sustainable, natural looking manner. INFINIskin delivers thermal energy in the deeper dermis layers, causing stimulation of collagen fibers for firming up of the skin and volume support. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide this procedure to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.
How does it Work?
INFINIskin procedure involves the use of gold-plated microneedles combined fractional RF energy penetration. The technique differentiates itself from typical RF platforms by promoting skin tightening from inside out rather than the other way round. Its unique flow needle technology delivers RF energy precisely where it is intended – in the dermis. Collagen, which is the skin’s supporting structure, is present in the dermis. Therefore, as RF heat energy reaches the dermis, it promotes new collagen growth and tissue tightening at precise, pre-determined depths in the skin. This results in substantive improvement in scars, wrinkles and skin laxity in a nearly painless manner and minimal downtime.
Unique RF Technology
RF devices are typically monopolar or bipolar. But INFINI is a multi-polar device, which means it has multiple paired needle electrodes along with a polar device. Traditional RF skin resurfacing technologies are classified as ablative, sublative and non ablative, depending on how aggressive the technique is. INFINI is in a category of its own because it delivers multi-dimensional energy in various layers of the dermis. INFINI is also a fractionated device, which delivers heat energy is several discrete zones rather than a single large treatment stamp. Fractionated approach allows for faster healing after the treatment.
Traditional micro needling devices are not combined with RF or light energy, and make use of a stamp or roller. But the INFINI hand piece contains 49 microscopic needles that are deployed through the surface of the skin. These tips conduct RF energy into the targeted areas at pre-determined depths, producing more effective outcomes than traditional micro needling techniques. Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for INFINIskin non-surgical procedure.
INFINIskin is commonly used to treat skin laxity and wrinkles in order to achieve tighter, smoother and more youthful looking skin. It re-volumizes depleted tissue areas, enhances skin texture, and creates tissue tightening. The procedure is effectively used for scar remodeling because acne scars and even traumatic scars can respond well to a series of INFINI treatments. The procedure is commonly used in the face to improve wrinkles, scars, and skin texture. Aging signs and roughness of skin in the neck area as well as vertical wrinkles in the décolletage are also treated with INFINI.

Signs of aging and other imperfections typically appear in the skin as a person ages. Although plastic surgery procedures are available for skin rejuvenation, but many people may want to avoid invasive surgery and choose non-surgical options such as laser skin resurfacing. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody offer Fraxel and eMatrix as advanced laser skin resurfacing techniques to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and other cities across the landscape.
Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatments are an effective way to counter visible signs of aging, and restore a more youthful looking skin. Almost a million Fraxel treatments have been performed over the last decade. Both women and men of all skin types and ethnicities can benefit from this procedure. The specialized Fraxel laser focuses pulsating light beams over the targeted areas to eliminate the damaged or dead skin cells one layer at a time. The thermal energy penetrates into the deeper layers, triggering the production of fresh collagen. This enables for re-volumizing of the skin from within in a natural and more sustainable way. Fraxel laser is designed to address the following common skin concerns:
Scars arising from acne, injury or previous surgeries
Darkened skin or hyperpigmentation
Wrinkles and fine lines
Sun-damaged or aging skin
Age spots, liver spots and other skin imperfections
Enlarged pores or acne prone skin
The advantage with Fraxel laser is that it only targets about 15 percent of the skin’s surface while penetrating into the dermis. This fractional technique ensures that the surrounding healthy tissue remains unharmed, and the overall healing can occur quickly. A single Fraxel laser treatment will last for about 15 to 45 minutes, and will not involve any post-treatment downtime.
eMatrix laser skin resurfacing is a cutting edge procedure to mitigate the conspicuous signs of aging. The procedure will gently resurface the skin over four to five treatment sessions. It is designed to tighten sagging skin and provide it a subtle lift, enhance skin tone and texture, and improve imperfections such as acne scars, abdominal stretch marks, and mild to moderate wrinkles. It also minimizing enlarged pores and provides a glow to the skin. The key benefit of eMatrix is that it provides results that are similar to those of more aggressive laser treatments, while avoiding the extended downtime and discomfort associated with more aggressive or ablative procedures. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas. eMatrix sublative skin rejuvenation is based on radio frequency (RF) energy. RF energy generates thermal heat in the deeper skin layers in the affected areas without causing disruption in the skin’s surface. This will help to stimulate the fresh production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin to strengthen the tissue from within. The procedure involves minimal downtime of about 48 hours, and mild roughness in the skin will remain for three to five days.
