For treating scarring and tightening skin of the face, my choice is the Infini

The Infini uses RF with microneedling to cause collagen contraction and remodeling.  It can treat both scars and wrinkles.  There is 24 hours of redness with mild swelling.  It requires at least 3 to get scarring and maybe more.  It is especially good for darker skin types because the risk of hyperpigmentation is extremely low.

Vivace Excellent Machine

In our practice we use the Vivace exclusively as it is the only machine that has both 1 and 2 MhZ settings with the guarded and unguarded needles, both of which can be used strategically to treat skin conditions like scars. The Vivace remains one of the most comfortable devices in this class and our patients really appreciate the advancements in this technology.
