Pacific Dermatology and Cosmetic Center is proud to offer the latest innovation in skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and the treatment of acne scars, INFINI™. This patented new treatment is truly a game changer for dark or tanned skinned patients, who until now, had limited energy-based treatment choices for wrinkle reduction and other skin enhancements. This technology enables us to provide the results our patients deserve year round.
What is INFINI™?
As skin ages it develops wrinkles, pigmentary and other textural changes that reduce the youthful appearance of your skin. INFINI™ provides results like a noninvasive face-lift. The results you desire, without the surgical downtime. INFINI™ is a low down-time alternative to fractional CO2 and other ablative skin treatments, maximizing results while minimizing patient discomfort.

HOW infini WORKS
INFINI™ uses a high intensity focused RF (radio frequency) system to precisely deliver energy deep into the dermis (below the skin) without worry of thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. With the heat occurring under the surface of the skin, this procedure is considered non-ablative resulting in a more comfortable treatment and faster healing. Our physicians insert insulated gold-coated microneedle tips to the treatment area and built-in ComfortFlow™ technology enables smoother penetration via sequential microneedle insertion. Energy based systems like INFINI™ work by stimulating the body’s natural healing response to the thermal (heat) injury induced by the lasers which stimulates the production of collagen in the dermal layer.
The collagen continues to build over several weeks after each treatment; the skin becomes more youthful as wrinkles and other surface become less visible. Complete control over treatment depth and energy levels enables a multi-layered approach for truly customized treatments, regardless of skin type or tan. Results are maximized in a single treatment and subsequent redness is easily camouflaged.
What can INFINI™ Treat?
Infini can treat a wide range of skin conditions associated with aging, including wrinkles, pigmentary and other textural changes. In addition, the Infini laser tightens the skin, and helps decrease lines and pores.
Our physicians will help determine which treatment course is best to meet your goals, but typically patients receive between 1-3 treatments.
- Acne Scarring
- Visible Signs of Aging
- Skin Tightening
- Enlarged Pores
- Poor Texture
- Fine Lines
What Results Can I Expect with Infini?
INFINI™ treatments are performed right in our office using topical anesthesia in most cases. Most patients tolerate the procedure with only this numbing agent. Depending on each individual, the treatment is sometimes moderately uncomfortable, but some patients report no pain at all. You will feel a slight pressure when the needles are inserted but we work with you to maximize your comfort level. You will hear a ‘stamping’ sound when the microneedles are inserted to deliver the energy within the dermis. For maximum results, Dr. Reichel may make multiple passes with the INFINI™. One treatment takes between 15-60 minutes depending upon the goal.
Is there any Downtime after an Infini Treatment?
After the treatment, INFINI™ has a relatively short recovery period and there are no activity or sun restrictions at all! Most patients find that they can wear cover-up and be back at work 1-2 days after their procedure when residual redness and swelling has dissipated. Results can be seen quickly, but your collagen will continue to build for 4-6 weeks, with improvements being seen as long as 6 months after the treatment.
