“They’ll be knocked out when they see you,” your husband smiles as he walks by, fastening his cufflinks. You’re almost ready, leaning in close to the mirror to apply one more layer of concealer. You know you look beautiful – the right dress, the right shoes, the right hair. The people who remember you as a pimply teenager may not even recognize you; you won your battle with acne a long time ago, and you’ve still got the scars to show for it. Usually you can hide them with makeup, but tonight is different. Special. A twenty-year reunion doesn’t come along every day, you think, and smile at your reflection. Is that little bit of scarring on your upper lip still visible? Better add a little more concealer….
The focus should be on you, not the ghosts of your adolescent acne. There are plenty of temporary fixes out there claiming to treat acne scarring. Some of them work… for a time. The good news, though, is that the fate of your skin is now in your hands, and you can banish scars altogether. At Azul Cosmetic Surgery and Medical Spa, INFINI is one of our favorite and most versatile treatments for all kinds of skin imperfections, including those deep-pitted acne scars.
INFINI literally tightens and smooths your skin from within. The provider uses a handheld device that delivers a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. The tissues are tightened and deep acne scars are smoothed, all with zero damage to the surface of your skin.
Because INFINI bypasses the outer layer of skin, it’s safe for all skin types, tones and conditions. In just thirty to forty-five minutes, we can treat specific areas of your face, neck or chest. All you need is a topical anesthetic applied to the target areas, and then the provider makes three passes over each spot. The depth of the microneedles is adjustable, so you can get a deeper treatment at each session. If you do experience any discomfort afterward, many patients report that it’s no worse than having a minor sunburn.
Depending on where your acne scarring is, and how deep, you can also consider other treatments for acne scarring instead of (or in addition to) INFINI. A liquid facelift is a non-surgical way to get smoother, fresher, rejuvenated skin. Dr. Flaharty has performed thousands of liquid facelifts that contour your facial tissues, and smooth out wrinkles and minor scarring. In addition to INFINI, he may also recommend dermal fillers (such as JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft®) to boost collagen regeneration and rejuvenate your skin.
No treatment can make your acne scars disappear overnight — no matter what the product label promises. It takes several weeks after each INFINI treatment for the deeper layers of the dermis to heal enough to produce new collagen. Be patient. After two or three treatments, you’ll see the scarring literally disappear… leaving you fresh-faced and ready to dance the night away with more energy and confidence than you had twenty years ago.
