Infini Treatment - How Does Infini Treat Acne Scars?

To understand how Infini works to treat acne scars, one must first understand the process of acne scar formation.

How Do Acne Scars Form?

Acne Scars are formed by damage to the dermis layer of the skin. Our skin is comprised of two layers. The top layer is known as the epidermis and the bottom layer is known as the dermis. The epidermis layer sits on top of the dermis and is always renewing. Therefore any treatment to the epidermis is not useful in treating depressed acne scars. In a deep acne scar, the dermis is the layer that is damaged by the huge pimple. The resulting inflammation causes loss of tissue and collagen in the dermis layer. Consequently, there is a dent in the skin.

How Can Deep Acne Scars Be Treated?

To treat deep acne scars, the dermis of the skin needs to be restored to its original condition. This involves remodelling the scar fibres that have been formed in the dermis. In addition, new collagen fibres need to be formed in the dermis layer. This will provide new support to the epidermis layer and push up the scar from below. However, in order to reach the dermis, which is 1-3mm below the surface of the skin, deep treatments are needed.

 

Infini Acne Scar Treatment

Infini Acne Scar Treatment is the latest and most effective technology that we have for deep acne scar resurfacing and skin lifting and rejuvenation.

With Infini, we are able to resurface the skin and smoothen deep acne scars, restoring your confidence in your skin. If you have been plagued by debilitating acne scars, read on to find out more!

Infini utilizes a patented microneedle system and acne scarMost conventional laser and RF treatments can only reach 1.5-1.75 mm below the skin. However with Infini, the penetration depth of the treatment is up to 3.5mm below the skin. This ensures that even deep acne scars can be treated with the Infini treatment.

Comparison of Acne Scar Treatments  & Penetration Depth
Fractional CO2/Erbium YAG Laser: 1.5 mm
Intracel/Ultracel: 1.75 mm
Infini : 3.5 mm

Therefore, with Infini, it is now possible to treat impossible acne scars where other treatments have failed.

Advantages of Infini Acne Scar Treatment

Infini Downtime – Low!

One of the biggest hurdles for acne scar treatments is downtime.  Fractional CO2 laser treatments were once thought to be the gold standard for acne scar treatments.  However, fractional CO2 laser treatments at the high energy levels which we use for acne scar treatment is associated with a long downtime.  Patients often have redness for 3-4 days, with scabs for up to 7 days after a treatment.

With Infini, the downtime is only about 3-4 days of mild redness.  This makes it realistically possible to do over the weekend.  Our patients usually get back to work the on Monday with only mild redness on their face.

The reason for this is that the patented insulated microneedle system does generate any heat at the surface of the skin.  Therefore the skin heals twice as fast as after a fractional CO2 treatment.  Look at the Jello video below to understand why Infini does not cause surface burns.

3-4x More Effective, Lesser Treatments Needed

With Infini, a single treatment allows us to perform multiple passes over the same area, treating the entire thickness of the dermis of the skin. From our experience, this makes the treatment 3-4x more effective than conventional Fractional CO2 laser, which only allows us to do 1 pass. See the test with Jello to understand how the technology works. That means that we are able to achieve much more with a single treatment of Infini, and therefore less treatments are needed.  To put it in perspective, we are able to treat deeper acne scars in far less time and number of sessions than conventional Fractional CO2 and other multineedle treatments like Intracel.

Treat Deeper Scars

For deep acne scars, it is necessary to really get below the scar tissue to stimulate deep collagen production in the skin.  This pushes up the scars from below to really treat those impossible scars.

Permanent Results

With Infini, the results of each treatment are permanent.  This means that once the scars are remodelled, the skin stays that way.  The only way to achieve this is by stimulating the skin to remove old scar tissue and create new, healthy and organised collagen fibres to replace the damaged tissue.

Added Bonus : Lifting and Wrinkle Reduction

Infini treatments stimulate your skin to produce a lot of collagen.  This means that you will not only enjoy the scar remodelling effects of Infini, but you will also benefit from its other effects.   When we age, skin loses its elastin and collagen fibres, leading to sagging and wrinkles.  The new collagen and elastin fibres produced by your own cells will reduce these effects.  You will see a younger, lifted and V-shaped face with Infini.  Find out more here.

What's Infini's Treatment like?

The treatment process is very simple.  Without correct pain management, the treatment can be slightly painful.  With our years of experience in administering this treatment, we have devised ways of reducing the pain factor.  This will make your journey to a smoother, younger face a more comfortable one.

The first stage of treatment will involve the use of our specially formulated numbing cream to reduce the sensation of the face.  After the cream has set in and the face is numb, the doctor will proceed to administer the Infini treatment.  The entire treatment takes only about twenty minutes, during which multiple passes will be applied on the face to treat acne scars, sagging and wrinkles.

Different depths will be selected by our doctor based on our experience in judging the severity of the scarring and thickness of the skin.  We typically use very high energy levels that will yield more results per treatment, but we will balance this with the downtime and risk of complications.

What's the Downtime After Infini?

After Infini, most patients will be red for between 1-5 days.  We can adjust the downtime based on the individual patient's preference.  However it should be noted that longer downtime implies more energy and therefore better results.

For lifting and wrinkles, the downtime is typically 1-2 days.  For acne scar treatment, we usually aim for downtime of about 3-5 days.  99% of patients will not have scabs on the face.  Most patients prefer to do their treatments on Fridays and rest over the weekend, and are usually sufficiently recovered by Monday.  For that reason, our Friday evenings are usually very packed.  Please forgive us if waiting time is slightly long on Friday evenings.

What Precautions Should I Take After Infini?

After Infini, the  skin is more sensitive to sunlight.  It could develop patchy hyperpigmentation if exposed to excessive sunlight.  To prevent this, be sure to wear your sunblock.  If you need to be in the sun, remember to also wear a cap or carry an umbrella.  Remember that sitting by a window, alfresco cafe, or driving also exposes you to a lot of indirect sunlight which is also bad.

Is Infini Safe?

Infini is generally a very safe treatment.  We are the first in Singapore to adopt Infini and are the biggest and most experienced users of Infini in Singapore.  So far our complication rate is extremely low.  We rely on our experience to ensure that you have a good balance of safety, while being treated at a sufficient level to see great results.

When Can I See Results?

Results from Infini only appear about one month after the treatment, and continue to improve up to three months after the treatment.  Shallower scars will respond first, while deeper scars will take longer and more treatments to heal.

How Many Treatments of Infini Will I Need?

Depending on your expected result, your skin healing and your initial condition of the skin and scars, you could require anywhere between 1 to 2 treatments for mild scars, and 4-8 treatments for more severe scars.

What's the Interval Between Infini Treatments?

Typically we can do a strong treatment every 2-3 months, or if we do a very light treatment, once every month.  However, most patients going for Infini will find that it is more productive and cost effective to do strong treatments which produce far better results.  Taking into consideration that acne scars are by nature difficult to treat, it is logical to expect that light treatments will not produce optimal results.
