How long do Infini results last?
As with all the collagen stimulating procedures, the results should last about 3 years. This is based on new collagen lasting about 7 years but the effects of aging reduce those results. The usual recommendations are to have 3 treatments with touch ups about every 1-1.5 years. Duration is dependent on overall health, sun protection, and whether you are on medical grade skin care. If you are a smoker, this significantly negatively impacts your results and duration. Also, Retin A is essential for optimal skin health. Collagen stimulating fillers such as Sculptra and Bellafill will prolong the results by boosting the collagen that is stimulated from the Infini; they act synergistically. Remember that tightening is very difficult in a volume depleted person, so it is essential to be volumized before or during treatment. If this is done for acne scarring, the results should be long term as long as more scarring is not occurring. Keep in mind that many acne scarring patients also need fillers to get best results because volume loss make scars more apparent.
Thank you for your question. The results can be seen immediately after the completion of the treatment. However, the rebuilding of collagen in your body can take weeks to months. For optimal results, it can take 2 to 3 treatments and full results can take anywhere from 4 to 6 months once the new collagen growth is complete. Results will vary per individual. It is not determined how long it actually lasts since long term studies have not been conducted yet.
Hope this helps,
How long can Infini last
For the best results, 3 treatments with infini is required. Unfortunately, there is no study to say how long the effects will stay. Because we continue to age, there is no noninvasive device or invasive surgery that lasts a lifetime. A facelift is generally thought to last 10 years, but this varies on the patient and their aging process. With that said, I would tell my patients that infini will have to be repeated every 3 to 4 years.

When treating skin laxity and wrinkles the longevity of treatments depend on how well you maintain your skin. Avoiding sun damage by not laying out in the sun, using a good sun block daily, using retinols and a good skin care regimen to promote collagen production to reinforce the skin, results can last for years.Ultimately you can not stop your skin from aging but you can slow down the process. I hope this helps.
