Success E s t he t i que INFINI TOUCH In today’s aesthetic industry, there are a variety of procedures that can be done in less than an hour which may provide the patient with long-term results, like the Lutronic Infini fractional radiofrequency system, a device designed to target facial fine lines, loose skin, acne scars and improve skin texture overall, which may not always be achieved by fillers or neurotoxins alone. It combines radiofrequency energy with micro-needling technology. There are 49 micro-needles in each tip, which perforate the skin at different depths that can range from 0.5mm to 3.5mm and at different energy levels. The device makes it easy to customize settings to get the best results for individual needs. It stimulates the body’s natural collagen production and healing process without the downtime of more invasive procedures. The results can be appreciated in as little as 30 days but may take up to 6 months to be fully observed. Patients are suggested a course of 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart, to accomplish the desired outcome. Among the expected reactions, patients may experience swelling and redness for 1-3 days. If you feel like your skin is dull, loose and has excessive lines, you may want to consider a free consultation to find out if you’re a candidate for this remarkable procedure.

TEX T BY RYAN JARRELL MED CHECK No matter if it’s in-patient or out-patient, a few minutes in an examination room or an extensive surgical procedure, make sure your doctor knows of any medications you’re taking, especially over-the-counter blood thinners like Aspirin and Ibuprofen. NECESSARY NUTRIENTS In addition to Vitamins A and C, make sure you up your pre- procedure protein intake. Protein is a necessary component in the building and healing of tissue. Worried about sticking to your diet? Consider a protein powder instead. NO SIPPING We know, we know; it’s Miami. Dinner is not really dinner without a pre-, post- or during dinner drink. But unless your doctor says otherwise, alcohol shouldn’t be imbibed up to 72 hours before any procedure.
