Washington, DC area dermatologist offers Infini advanced skin tightening treatments
Patients struggling with sagging skin on their face or neck area may feel their only hope is plastic surgery. Luckily, with the assistance of Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, patients in the Washington, DC area can enjoy a non-invasive solution such as the Infini skin tightening treatment.
What is Infini?
Infini is a device that is used to provide a special type of microneedling with the use of radiofrequency (RF) energy. This RF technology is used to treat within the dermis – the second layer of the skin. This layer supports the structure of the skin and contains collagen. Collagen is necessary to keep the skin tight and reduce skin laxity. When it naturally begins to deplete, it is important to seek treatments to stimulate collagen production – such as the Infini skin tightening treatment. The Infini device encourages the growth of collagen in the treatment area and tightens the tissues to improve wrinkled skin and skin laxity.
What are the advantages of Infini skin treatments?
Dr. Cheryl Burgess encourages patients to speak to her team about the advantages of using the Infini treatment to address imperfections on the skin such as those above. Some of the benefits of Infini include:
- Improving the elasticity of skin that has aged or been damaged by solar exposure
- Reducing the depth of superficial lines and wrinkles on the face and neck area
- Treating scars and reducing their appearance (including acne scarring)
- Use on patients of all skin types without the risk of developing pigmentation concerns
- Tightening the skin on the face and neck area by stimulating collagen production
- Reducing the downtime needed for healing
- Reducing any side effects, typically just red, sensitive skin for up to 48 hours following treatment

Who is a candidate for Infini skin tightening treatments?
The best candidates for treatment are those with:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity concerns
What can I expect during my treatment?
Infini treatments are performed in our office in usually less than one hour. Patients relax in the treatment chair and enjoy the application of the radiofrequency energy and microneedling process under the care of one of our experienced dermatological professionals administering treatment. Some patients require local anesthesia for slight discomfort, but this is minor and well tolerated.
After the procedure, patients should take great care of their skin to allow it to heal properly. Patients should not use any makeup until the next day, and they should take care in touching the skin with anything that may be unclean, including hands or towels. Patients are not restricted in sun exposure but should wear sunscreen if they plan on being outside for any extended period. No activities are restricted, so patients can get right back to their normal routine the following day. Patients may experience swelling and redness that can stay for several days, but this is a minor side effect of treatment when compared with surgical interventions.
How many sessions will I require?
The number of treatment sessions varies from patient to patient, based on their specific needs, but most patients will see results after three treatments. Some patients prefer to get yearly treatments for maintenance, while others have specific concerns they want to address quickly.
