Why Choose SKINLIFE for Acne Scars
Acne scarring (acne scar) can involve textural change in the superficial and deep layers of skin, and can also be associated with redness and pigmentation (darkening of skin). There are three types of acne scars – rolling, ice-pick, and box-car. Rolling scars appear like gentle hills and valleys without sharp borders. Ice-pick scars are round and deep depressions with a V-shaped cross-section. Box-car scars have a flat, U-shaped cross-section.

WHAT IS INFINI RF?
Infini RF provides microneedle fractional radiofrequency (MFR). MFR delivers controlled electro-thermal energy to the deep dermis with adjustable depth micro-needling using an array of extremely thin, insulated needles to induce collagen and elastin production deep within the skin. The insulated needles protect the epidermis and are inserted with a special flow needling technology which facilitates smooth skin penetration, leaving the surface of the skin (epidermis) virtually untouched. The depth of needle penetration is adjustable for true three-dimensional tightening of the deeper dermis. This synergistic combination of technology helps to achieve three-dimensional tightening of the skin. Very high energy is delivered in a short amount of time at selected dermal depths resulting in minimum bleeding and maximum dermal coagulation. In addition, the healing process ensures three-dimensional tissue remodeling throughout the treated area, and an overall improvement in the skin. Infini RF is a perfect treatment for patients seeking are fast-acting and effective skin improvement, without side effects or disruption to their routine.
- How many sessions of Infini RF do I need?
The number of treatments required is determined by the type of skin condition. However, most patients notice marked improvements after just two to three treatments, in terms of improved skin tone, as well as a decrease in new acne lesions, seborrhea and skin pores. Subjective improvement can be seen in just a few weeks, whereas a longer period is required to recover elasticity in aged skin.
- Can Infini RF be used on all skin types?
Treatment with conventional RF devices and fractional lasers is associated with increased risk of delayed erythema, as well as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, particularly in Asian skin. Thanks to the insulated needles of the device which protect the epidermis from thermal injury and consequent inflammation, these risks are very low with Inifini RF even for the darkest skin types.
- How long is the down time?
Short downtime is an important and attractive feature of Infini RF, enabling patients to get back to their routine very quickly after the treatment. After Infini RF treatment, redness may last for only two to four days after treatment, which can be covered up by wearing make-up.
- How do I take care of my skin after the Infini RF treatment?
No special care is needed post treatment, but patients should avoid ultraviolet exposure and excessive washing of the face. In addition, to enhance the clinical effects of INFINI, Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) growth factors and Omnilux photomodulation therapy can be performed after Infini RF procedure.
