Microneedling can benefit patients of all skin types with some skin laxity to give their skin a boost by the tightening of the tissue. When combined with radio frequency (RF) technology, the microneedles will deliver radio frequency directly in the skin with precise control to stimulate even more collagen growth and tissue tightening. The Lutronic Infini Radio Frequency Skin Rejuvenation System is a new anti-aging treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and to induce skin tightening. At Cosmetic Surgery Specialists in Langhorne, Bucks County, PA, double board-certified cosmetic surgeon and ophthalmologist Dr. Alan Brackup offers microneedling with radio frequency for skin rejuvenation using the Lutronic Infini System. The Infini System offers multiple treatment options from this unique system with enhanced outcomes, including:
- Skin tightening
- Skin rejuvenation
- Enlarged pores
- Scar revision
- Sagging skin along the jaw line
- Fine lines or laxity in the neck
"My search was over after being referred to Dr. Brackup!!!. My son's wedding was coming up in August, 2016. My eyes were horrible .When I smiled you saw know eye's. I met one surgeon that was scared to remove the lower bags. How would that look? Didn't make sense. With Time running out by chance I when to a new hairdresser, that had her eyes done and look beautiful. Even though Dr. had a busy schedule,he made it a point to fit me in for June 28th. I was assured my eye's would look beautiful by August 20th. Dr. Brackup was right. I had Upper and lower procedures done. Dr. sculpted my eyes to compliment my high cheek bones. They are beautiful. At 60 years old I look twenty years younger!! Dr. Brackup and his entire staff were kind and honestly the best experience I ever had. He is gifted with hands of gold. He only works from the neck up and is a oculoplastic surgeon. My confident's is through the roof. I walk with my head high for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, Dr. Brackup for setting this butterfly free!! Before pictures click on Rosemarie P. Thanks"- R.P. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2017
"Great experience - Mid May I had upper and lower lid blepharoplasty and I have not had anyone ask me if I were tired since! Dr. Brackup and his team were warm and professional from the first visit. The staff at the surgery center were equally wonderful. I knew I was in good hands. The recovery was not bad at all and the results are fantastic!"- D. / RealSelf / Oct 01, 2018

"Two Good Reasons to Choose Dr Brackup - The two main reasons I chose Dr Brackup to 'freshen up' my eyes were:1) 3 friends had cosmetic surgery by Dr Brackup over 10 years ago, all still look great. 2) Dr Brackup is the first doc to have duel board certifications in both ophthalmology and facial plastic surgery.I've found Dr Brackup and his team to be compassionate and highly competent."- W. / RealSelf / Sep 17, 2018
"Great Choice - Dr. Brackup - Excellent. Just completed my second followup appointment following lower eyelid surgery with excellent results. The entire experience was positive. The staff is pleasant, organized and very competent. Instructions both pre and post op are clearly explained. Dr. Brackup's curriculum vitae is most impressive. Additionally, he's a very nice guy, who is an excellent surgeon. I am very glad..."- M. / RealSelf / Aug 30, 2018
Most microneedling procedures take about 30 minutes. The INFINI system was designed to maximize comfort for the patient thanks to its patented flow needling technology, but some patients may still feel some discomfort. After treatment, redness is common but is easily covered with makeup. More results will emerge gradually as collagen contracts and regenerates.
What to Expect
Patients may have mild redness in the treated area for up to 5 days, but this can usually be covered with mineral makeup. Some patients may notice other mild reactions, including burning, tightness, and skin flaking. Patients will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, but heavy activity and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. Since it takes time for the effects of increased collagen and elastin to become visible, patients may see some improvement immediately, but most will see their results 3 – 6 months after their treatment.

How Many Treatments?
Your doctor will discuss your treatment goals and these goals will determine the number of treatments you will need. Most patients will get their best results after 3 – 6 microneedling treatments, but once the desired results are achieved, patients should continue to schedule touch up treatments to maintain the results. Patients generally see sustained results if they get 1 – 2 microneedling sessions every year.
What Are Collagen and Elastin?
Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the tissue to support the skin. The supply of collagen fibers and elastin in the body typically decreases with age and the decreased elasticity of the skin leads to sagging, wrinkles, and lines.
The best candidates for microneedling are usually age 50 and under who are beginning to see the start of aging and environmental damage, but they still have good skin elasticity. Microneedling can be used on all skin types and tones, but it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
