Treating acne scars with the Infini
You are an excellent candidate for the Infini. I would treat about 3 times. If there remains deeper scars, I would fill them with Bellafill. Adding PRP might be of some benefit. With your skin type, Infini is a safe procedure whereas lasers could leave pigmentation issues. Dr. Ibrahimi is close by and one of the thought leaders of Infini. I have lectured with him about these treatments.
INFINI for Acne scars
INFINI would be very beneficial to acne scars such as yours. INFINI uses a combination of micro needling and RF to treat the skin to rebuild and resurface skin and scarring from the 'Bottom-up'. It allows us to treat very deep scars with out damaging the top layers of skin which can lead to secondary scarring and hypo pigmentation. Patients see improvement in scar resurfacing and skin texture with little to no down time. 2-3 treatments are generally recommended for best results. It is safe for all skin types and is my treatment of choice for Asian and ethnic skin types. To treat scars that have improved but remain after treatment I recommend a dermal filler called Bellafill which is the only FDA filler approved for acne scars and/or a light laser or chemical peel to improve appearance and over all texture of the skin.

Acne scars require a combination of treatments for best results. I recommend lasers, microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers to get improvement. Don't let distance dissuade you. I suggest getting a formal evaluation with an acne scarring expert. Best, Dr. Emer

Acne scar treatments
Acne scars can certainly be improved with the Infini RF treatment. Our office was among the first to have the Infini and we have helped guide the treatment approach for acne scarring with the Infini. I would advise you see someone that has experience with lasers/devices and also treating Asian skin. We get many patients who travel from the 5 boroughs and beyond for this treatment.
