Skinfinity RF: The Cure Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Loose Skin and More

Skinfinity RF: The Cure Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Loose Skin and More

Skinfinity uses patented in-motion technology for treatments of the face and body. The in-motion roller tip is applied to the treatment area, delivering focused radiofrequency through rows of pyramid-shaped electrodes. When the roller tip glides over your skin, each electrode delivers precise energy to the area to achieve the ideal thermal effect. This creates controlled injuries to the tissue called Micro-ablative Treatment Zones (MTZs). The MTZs stimulate an enhanced healing response, encouraging your skin to rejuvenate and improving your results. Both components of the treatment can be adjusted and customized to meet each client’s individual skin care needs.

Thread Facelift: The Future of Noninvasive Facelifts

A thread facelift is a safe, convenient alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Designed to be less invasive, it can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk than the conventional approach.

Special threads are used during this facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place.

So what is a thread facelift?
