3D Volumisation – a major advance in skin treatment
Using 2 types of radiofrequency technologies:
Micro-needling Fractional Radiofrequency (MFR) and
Superficial Fractional Radiofrequency (SFR)
The combination of radiofrequency technologies makes INFINI quite unique. Delivering radiofrequency energy through fine needles allows the treatment to work beneath the skin’s surface. Altering the depth of needle penetration as well as the pulse emitted makes a highly sophisticated 3D treatment for boosting natural facial volume.
An Introduction to INFINI

How INFINI Works
We have been watching this technology since it first came out over 2 years ago, and we’re now very happy to have found the INFINI device, which we believe delivers all that is best about this technology.Dr John Tanqueray

In addition, potentially very useful with:
active inflammatory acne
Radiofrequency with Micro Needling
That radiofrequency works to tighten and improve the skin is well understood, but until now delivering it accurately and effectively to the depth that is needed has been a problem.
Traditional radiofrequency treatments aim to deliver RF energy from the outside and have delivered quite variable and unpredictable results, and especially for a high cost treatment this is a major disadvantage.
The way INFINI works is quite different: multiple very fine needles are placed at a predetermined depth in the skin and a brief pulse of radio-frequency is emitted from them before they are withdrawn. Over one treatment different depths can be treated so that a 3D effect is achieved.

More INFINI Treatment Results
How long does treatment take?
The appointment time required is 45-60 minutes to allow for anaesthetic cream, but the treatment itself takes 20 – 30 minutes.
What after-effects should I expect - is there any downtime?
Considering what we are delivering to the skin, the downtime afterwards is relatively little – usually a day of redness, a second day of blotchiness, and then some dryness and light crusting for a further two or three days.
What restrictions are there after Infini treatment?
Skin care must be only the prescribed creams. Exercise careful hygiene with the skin – avoid touching with unclean hands or towels. Avoid makeup until the next day.
Unlike other treatments, there are no restrictions with regard to physical activity (exercise), heat (e.g. sauna) or sun exposure.
Does it hurt?
We find there is quite a range of response to this question, from “uncomfortable but quite bearable” to “quite painful at times, but tolerable because the treatment time is quite short”. There are certain areas that tend to be more sensitive, such as the cheekbones and around the mouth.
We use anaesthetic cream prior to treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Results do build up with repeated sessions. Three treatments are the standard recommendation, although more can be given if necessary.
How long is recovery?
There may be some initial redness and swelling, but this reduces very quickly after treatment. It tends to take around 24-36 hours for all the redness to pass.
How frequent are the treatment sessions?
We recommend that treatment sessions take place every 3-4 weeks.
When will I see the results?
As the treatment works by stimulating collagen growth and cell renewal, it takes time to build up the finished effect. This is why it is such a natural-looking treatment. Results may be visible from 4-6 weeks after the first treatment but can continue to improve up to 6 months after the final session.
How long do results last?
This will vary for each patient. As a general rule, new collagen will last at least 7 years. However, the amount of collagen is variable and its rate of depletion will also vary depending on skin health, smoking, sun exposure and lifestyle.
After the initial course, we recommend a ‘touch up’ every 12-18 months.
Can this treatment help acne scarring?
INFINI radiofrequency can be quite effective at improving the appearance of atrophic, mixed and rolling acne scarring. The use of MFR (micro needling fractional radiofrequency) delivers the radiofrequency energy right into the scar tissue beneath your skin, targeting collagen directly and bypassing the the epidermis for treatment which is more direct and efficient, but also kinder to the outer layer of skin compared to other treatments.
Certain types of scarring (such as box-car scars) may be better treated using laser. A consultation with Dr John Tanqueray is recommended to review your skin properly and discuss the most appropriate treatment.
