Infini Acne Scar Treatment

INFINI is the latest and most effective technology available in Singapore for managing deep acne scars, as well as overall skin lifting and rejuvenation.

With INFINI, we are able to resurface the skin and smoothen deep acne scars to rebuild your confidence in your skin. If you have been struggling with debilitating acne scars for what seems like forever – this treatment is for you.

How Are Acne Scars Formed?

Our skin is essentially comprised of two layers: the epidermis (top layer), and the dermis (bottom layer). When acne scars are formed, it is mainly due to damage caused to the dermis layer of the skin as a result of inflammation – causing a loss of tissue and collagen in the dermis layer.

What this means is that treatments catered to solve issues in the epidermis is not useful for treating deep, depressed acne scars.

How Can Deep Acne Scars Be Treated?

To treat deep acne scars, the dermis layer of the skin needs to be restored to its original condition. This involves remodelling of the scar fibres found in the dermis, and replacing it with new collagen fibres – providing extra support to the epidermis and pushing up the scar from underneath.

However, in order to reach the dermis, which is 1 to 3mm below the epidermis – treatments that are able to penetrate deeper below the skin is necessary.

How Does INFINI Work?

Knowing how acne scars are formed is crucial to understanding how INFINI works.

INFINI utilizes a patented microneedle system that allows it to have a penetration depth of up to 3.5mm below the skin. With other conventional laser and radiofrequency (RF) treatments – the maximum reach is only 1.5 - 1.75 mm below the skin.

This makes the INFINI treatment both more efficient, and effective.

Comparison of Penetration Depth Between Acne Scar Treatments
Fractional CO2/Erbium YAG Laser: up to 1.5 mm
Intracel/Ultracel: up to 1.75 mm
INFINI: up to 3.5 mm

With INFINI, it is now possible to treat acne scars where other treatments have failed.

Benefits of INFINI Acne Scar Treatment

Low Downtime

One of the biggest barriers for acne scar treatments is downtime.

While Fractional CO2 laser treatments were once thought to be the gold standard for treating acne scars – the high energy levels used is associated with a longer downtime. Patients often experience redness for 3 to 4 days, with scabs that last up to 7 days after a session.

With INFINI, patients only experience mild redness for 3 to 4 days, making it more practical for undergoing the procedure over the weekend.

The reason for low downtime? The patented insulated microneedle system generates and delivers heat energy deep into the dermis – allowing it to heal twice as fast as compared to a fractional CO2 laser treatment. Watch the Jello video below to see how INFINI is able to prevent surface burns.

3 – 4x More Effective = Less Treatments Needed

In a single treatment session, we are able to perform multiple passes over the same area – treating the entire thickness of the dermis.

From our experience, this makes INFINI 3 – 4x more effective than conventional Fractional CO2 laser, which only allows a single shot at a time. As seen in the Jello test below, this means that we are able to achieve much more in just one treatment of INFINI. To put this in perspective, our doctors are able to successfully treat deep acne scars in far less time and sessions. This is in comparison to conventional Fractional CO2 laser, as well as other, multi-needle techniques like Intracel.

Treat Deeper Scars

In order to successfully treat deep acne scars, it is important to be able to reach below the scar tissue and stimulate deep collagen production – this serves to push up the scars from beneath and smooth out the skin.

Permanent Results

With INFINI, the results are permanent. Since the treatment acts to stimulate the skin to remove old scar tissue and remodel healthy and organised collagen fibres to replace them – this ensures that the skin is fully treated from within, and stays that way.

Bonus: Lifting and Wrinkle Reduction

INFINI stimulates your skin to produce and increase your collagen levels. Not only is this advantageous for scar remodelling, you will also be able to experience a younger, lifted and more contoured face as part of the treatment. Especially as we age, our skin loses its elastin and collagen fibres – leading to undesirable sagging and wrinkles. The new collagen and elastin fibres produced by your body as a result of INFINI can help reduce these effects.

What's Infini's Treatment like?
The entire process is very simple. The first step involves the use of our specially formulated numbing cream to reduce any pain and discomfort felt during the treatment. Once the cream has fully set in, the doctor will proceed to start the session, administering multiple passes on targeted areas on the face one after the other. The entire treatment will take roughly 20 minutes to complete. Depending on the severity of the scarring and thickness of your skin – our experienced doctors will select the most ideal depth to treat the area. We typically use very high energy levels that earn more results per treatment – balancing this with optimum downtime and lowering the risk of complications. The treatment can be slightly painful without the appropriate pain management – at The Clifford Clinic, we have devised methods for reducing the pain factor for our patients so that the journey to a smooth, flawless face is made a comfortable one.
INFINI Treatment Downtime
After the treatment, patients can expect to suffer redness for anywhere between 1 – 5 days. Depending on your needs, we can adjust the downtime based on your preferences; however, it should be noted that a longer downtime usually implies more energy being used during the treatment – which often equates to better results. Depending on what INFINI is treating, the downtime will differ. In the case of lifting and wrinkles, the downtime is typically 1 – 2 days. For acne scar treatments, we usually aim for a downtime of about 3 – 5 days. 99% of patients will not experience any scabbing on the face. Most of our patients prefer to have their sessions done on a Friday so that they are able to rest and recover over the weekend. For that reason, our Friday evenings are usually very packed, so do expect a slightly longer waiting time during this time period.
What Precautions Should I Take After Treatment?
After INFINI, your skin is much more sensitive to sunlight. In order to prevent patchy hyperpigmentation spots from developing, ensure that you are wearing the appropriate sunblock, or bring along a cap or umbrella every time you head outdoors. Even sitting by a window, alfresco cafe, or driving can expose you to a lot of indirect sunlight.
Is INFINI Safe?
INFINI is generally a very safe treatment – our complication rates are extremely low to date. Given that we are the first to adopt INFINI and its technology in Singapore – this makes us one of the biggest users and most experienced doctors providing the treatment. You can definitely rely on our wealth of experience to ensure that you get optimum results in the safest environment.
When Can I See Results?
Results from INFINI may only start appearing about one month in after beginning treatment - with noticeable improvements continuing up to three months later. Shallower scars tend to respond first, while deeper scars will take longer and more sessions 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.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Depending on your specific skin condition and expected results, as well as the ability of your skin to respond positively to the treatment – you may require anywhere between 1 to 2 treatments for mild scars, and 4 to 8 treatments for deeper, more severe scars.
What Is The Recommended Interval Between Treatments?

We highly recommend our patients to undergo a stronger treatment every 2 – 3 months, or for lighter treatments, once every month. However, most patients going for INFINI will find that it is much more productive and cost-effective to simply opt for a stronger treatment –which produces far better results.
