This will depend on several factors including the depth, energy settings, pulse duration, passes, and any underlying skin history you have as well as the technical knowledge of your specialist who performed the procedure. On average 2-4 days. If done correctly, the chances of scarring following INFINI RF is very, very low, and in general is much safer than laser.

Post infini redness and swelling
It is not uncommon to experience redness and swelling 48 hours after an infini treatment. People react differently with miconeedling. I find people with thin skin and light hair color experience more redness and itching. Don't be alarmed, this will subside in time. If not within the next few days, consult with your doctor.
Thank you for the question. The recovery from Infini RF will be variable based on the intensity of the treatment, number of passes, and your individual skin type. That said, redness and puffiness is common for 3 or 4 days. In my practice, I recommend that patients use a gentle moisturizer and SPF only on the treated areas for a week after each session. Thank you and best of luck moving forward!
At this point, what you are experiencing does not sound unusual. A sunburn-like swelling and redness can be noticed for 4 days after treatment. Warm weather, exercise, and the amount of cooling you use at home can effect this too. I have never heard of Infini "adding cartilage." The swelling of your nose may be more notable than swelling of your cheeks and not truly an enlargement of the nose itself. Please call your doctor with any questions, as he/she can provide the most helpful advice regarding your specific situation.
The redness usually lasts 1-4 days on average depending on the person. Putting makeup on is never an issue, but we tell our patients that they do not want to clog their pores with all of the makeup, we recommend a mineral based powder or light concealer. Hope this helps.

I suggest you speak to your physiicna. It all depends on strength and depth to determine the amount of downtime. You should be on the proper skin care and should have a plan with your physician as to the long term improvement. Best, Dr. Emer.
