Success E s t he t i que
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.

In addition to Vitamins A and
