What does INFINIskin High Intensity Focused RF (Radio Frequency) Treat?

Tag Archives: Richmond

INFINIskin High Intensity Focused RF Treatment | Richmond Medical SpaINFINIskin 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.
 

Treatment Focus

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.

What is INFINIskin? | Richmond Medical Spa | Non-Surgical RejuvenationINFINIskin 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.
 

Micro Needling

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.
 

Cosmetic Benefits

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.

Laser Skin Resurfacing with Fraxel and eMatrix | Richmond Medical SpaSigns 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

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
  • Actinic keratosis

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

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.

Instant Facelift and Skin Tightening Cost | Ashburn | McLean | Vienna

Cost Factors

The location of the practice where NovaThreads procedure is performed will make a difference to the overall costs. A practice located in a large metropolitan area or a prime urban center will typically have higher costs because of the higher costs of living as compared to a practice operating in a small town in an interior region.
The quality standards and best practices followed at a particular office, the personalized care and attention of the support staff, the kind of facilities, services and equipment at the office, and whether the office is led by experienced plastic surgeons or other highly qualified medical professionals are some of the elements that will impact the costs.
 

Extent of Treatment

Some patients may only require a limited degree of correction, or may need treatment only for a specific aspect such as jaw contouring, while some others may need more pervasive treatment in the lower part of the face and the neck area. The amount of skin laxity will also vary in each case, which will be factored while making the treatment plan.
Some patients may need NovaThreads instant facelift in conjunction with other procedures such as dermal filler injections or Botox. A special rebate may be available at a practice for patients who combine additional treatments with NovaThreads procedure. The overall cost will be determined case by case after assessing all these aspects.
 

Payment

Major treatment providers will usually accept payments by cash, check or credit cards. Patients may also consider financing options if they want to pay in installments.

Easy Neck Lift Using NovaThreads | Richmond | Chevy Chase | AshburnLoose or sagging skin in the neck can make a person appear older. Although neck lift plastic surgery procedure can effectively correct this condition, but many people want only a subtle neck enhancement without involving surgery. In such cases, a unique non-surgical procedure called NovaThreads may be successfully used to create a firmer and lifted neck appearance.
NovaThreads procedure is uncontested for non-surgical neck lift. The procedure involves no significant discomfort or downtime, and creates natural looking results. It may be ideally suited for working people, busy moms, and anyone else who wants to avoid the typical risks and complications associated with a neck lift surgical procedure.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides NovaThreads for neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
 

Absorbable Non-Scar Material


NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture. PDO refers to a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. These sutures are commonly used in advanced surgical procedures such as open heart surgery.
In the medical industry, these sutures are recognized as one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. The skin will fully absorb these sutures within four to six months. As a result, the patient will not be left with any scar tissue.
 

Neck Lift with NovaThreads

Although it is possible to insert NovaThreads nearly anywhere in the body for skin tightening, the one area where these are particularly effective is the neck. Neck and the lower third part of the face are areas that are challenging to treat effectively with dermal filler injections or with Botox.
These typical anti-aging techniques are more suited for the upper two-third of the face. That makes NovaThreads a treatment of choice for neck lift for people who want to avoid plastic surgery. NovaThread needles are simply inserted as a whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level in the neck, parallel to the surface of the skin.
Once inserted, the needle is pulled out, leaving the PDO thread under the skin. As the PDO suture takes about four to six months to get fully absorbed in the body, it triggers the skin’s natural healing mechanism, promotes new production of collagen fibers, and enables the neck tissue to achieve a subtle tightening and lift gradually over this period of time.
 

Techniques

NovaThread procedure for neck lift can be performed using the NovaMesh technique or NovaLyft technique. NovaMesh technique will tighten the neck skin naturally from within, and the results will appear naturally, without any drastic change. NovaLyft, on the other hand, will produce more dramatic and immediate outcomes with instant skin repositioning.
New collagen fibers will be produced in both these techniques for more sustainable results. Astute and sharp plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for NovaThreads procedure.

CoolSculpting in the Washington DC Area | Vienna | Tysons ChurchA variety of non-invasive and minimally fat reduction options are available today for people who wish to get rid of stubborn fat pockets in specific areas of the body without plastic surgery. CoolSculpting ranks among the most sought-after treatment options. This unique, FDA cleared procedure is totally non-invasive and yet creates significant fat reduction outcomes.
CoolSculpting involves an innovative cooling process to freeze the fat off and eliminate it from the body without the need of any incisions, injections or medications. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provide CoolSculpting to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.  
 

Procedure

A single treatment session can be completed in about 35 to 40 minutes with the latest CoolSculpting or CoolMini applicators.
The patient will simply relax comfortably in treatment room while the provider gently uses the applicator to target unwanted fat cells selectively and cause them to freeze and eventually disintegrate. The disintegrated fat cells will be gradually absorbed by the body, revealing a slimmer, contoured figure.
 

Results

Following the CoolSculpting treatment, the frozen cells will take a few weeks to get removed from the body. While improvement in contours will be noticed just after the first treatment session, progressive fat reduction will occur over a series of three to six treatments, depending on the patient’s needs.
Most patients will achieve an overall fat reduction of about 20 percent with CoolSculpting. Most conspicuous results will establish in about three to four months after CoolSculpting. The total number of treatment sessions, the number of treated areas and the extent of procedure will depend on the patient’s body type, health condition, and personal cosmetic goals.
CoolSculpting in the Washington DC Area | Vienna | Tysons Church

Permanent Fat Elimination

The path-breaking cooling technique involved in CoolSculpting was developed by Harvard scientists. Fat cells quickly respond to cold temperatures, and can be selectively targeted with the CoolSculpting device. The treatment causes the fat cells to freeze and eventually die. The dead fat cells are then permanently re-absorbed by the body.
As a result, CoolSculpting leads to permanent elimination of treated fat cells. The fat cells once removed will not return. But patients should know that CoolSculpting is not a replacement for diet and exercise. A good fitness regimen is vital to the maintenance of a well-contoured body.
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 for CoolSculpting.  
 

Patient Education

To learn more about CoolSculpting, patients should review the testimonials and feedback of past patients who have undergone the same procedure. Major online forums on aesthetic procedures, social networks and websites should also be explored to improve understanding about CoolSculpting.
Patients should form realistic expectations and should know that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but a fat reduction technique designed to enhance contours. They may also request the surgeon to provide CoolSculpting before and after images for review.

What is a Thread Facelift | Tysons Corner | Falls Church | LoudounMany women and men are worried about the appearance of aging signs on the face, but are reluctant to choose facelift plastic surgery because of the costs, downtime, and risks involved in it. Such people may consider a thread facelift, which offers a minimally invasive alternative to achieve facial rejuvenation and enhance their youthful appearance.
MBody is a state of the art practice led by board certified plastic surgeons providing innovative and proven procedures such as thread lift. Patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive thread facelift at MBody.  
 

Advantages

A thread facelift can mitigate the sagging appearance of the skin around the jaw line, neck and cheeks in a less invasive manner. The procedure involves minimal risk of complications and can be performed much faster than a traditional facelift plastic surgery. The surgeon will make use of special threads to discreetly hold together repositioned skin and facial tissue in a lifted position.  
Any signs of surgery are further minimized because of the use of clear threads in a contour thread facelift. In addition to its advantages such as greater comfort and minimal risk, a thread facelift also delivers significantly noticeable results in a shorter period than more invasive surgeries. The costs are also more affordable compared to a conventional facelift.
 

Suitable Candidates

A thread facelift is typically well-suited for people in the age group of 30 to 60, who still have a reasonable degree of skin elasticity in the face. The candidate may be bothered by the onset of facial sagging and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but they do not suffer from excessively loose skin or significantly drooping facial areas that may require a more invasive correction.
Many people want to delay the onset of aging or just need a subtle enhancement or a maintenance procedure for the face. These candidates can benefit more from a thread facelift. If an individual wants to avoid post-surgical facial scars and other common risks and complications associated with a surgery, they may also be ideally suited for a thread facelift.
 

Procedure

A thread facelift can be performed as an outpatient procedure in about one to two hours, and will usually not require anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will insert thin threads into the affected areas of the face through tiny incisions. Once the threads get attached to the skin tissue, they will be gently pulled back to provide a lift to the face and smooth out the skin.
Sagging effects will be reduced almost immediately and the treated parts of the face will reveal a lifted appearance. During the entire procedure, the patient will usually be full conscious. This will enable them to review and approve the renewed facial appearance even as the surgeon works.
The surgeon will conceal the thread knots within the skin. Any potential scarring will be virtually invisible from outside. Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and nearby areas for a thread facelift.
