Laser Skin Resurfacing
Are you considering Laser Skin Resurfacing to help address key skin care issues? Wrinkles, sun spots, crepey skin, folds and rough texture can all be addressed with a variety of laser resurfacing treatments available at Infinity Skin Care. Because Dr. Schulz’s medical team has years of experience providing resurfacing procedures, you can trust they can guide you to the resufacing treatment that is right for you.
Your skin’s surface is the first line of defense against sun and environmental exposure, so it stands to reason it’s also the first to show signs of wear and tear.
Sun damage, stress, poor eating habits, and smoking all lead to surface irregularities (brown spots, crepey skin, wrinkles, folds, and rough texture) which can make you look older than you really are.
Fortunately, Infinity Skin Care has the tools to resurface your skin and eliminate common skin care issues. From our gold standard Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing Laser to PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) technology, Infinity Skin Care will non-invasively resurface skin to provide you with beautiful, luminous, younger looking skin again.
Clear + Brilliant®
Clear + Brilliant is an FDA-approved, fractional laser device that works as a preventative laser treatment to combat the early signs of aging. It also serves as a maintenance laser after more aggressive treatments such as Fraxel. Clear + Brilliant is gentle and more mild than Fraxel, but a step above topical peels, microdermabrasion, and Dermasweep MD.
As an Anti-Aging Laser
Ready to take control of the aging process?
Aging skin is a fact of life. The good news is the earlier you start taking care of your skin, the more you can reduce the signs of aging and maintain a younger look.
What you do in your 20’s and 30’s will affect how you look in your 40’s, 50’s and beyond. Adding Clear + Brilliant to your collection of skin care routines – at any age – will help you recover the glow, luminosity and smoothness you deserve.
As the Perfect Laser for Maintenance
Is your skin as healthy as it can be?
If your skin has sun damage and you’ve employed aggressive treatments such as Fraxel Laser Resurfacing, Thermage Skin Tightening or volume enhancement to reverse those signs of aging, make sure you maintain the results. Clear + Brilliant laser is the perfect laser to choose when you want to keep your skin looking its best.
Clear + Brilliant Takes Skin Care to a Whole New Level
- Visibly illuminated skin tone
- Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
- Naturally radiant and glowing skin
- Improved tone, texture, and radiance

Clear + Brilliant® PERMEA
Infinity Skin Care now offers dual Clear + Brilliant® treatments to address a host of treatment considerations, including texture, minimized pore appearance, tone, radiance and permeability. The new Clear + Brilliant® Permea treatment enhances the permeability to significantly increase the benefits of your skincare products. Like the original Clear + Brilliant treatment, the Clear + Brilliant® Permea is comfortable, fast, effective and affordable. It is safe for all skin types and helps prevent the early signs of aging to maintain younger-looking skin. Dr. Schulz recommends pairing a serum with your treatment, such SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Serum, CE Ferulic or Neocutis BioSerum.

Clear + Brilliant Before & After
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing
Reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles, or acne scarring and recapture the fresh, healthy skin of your youth.
Infinity Skin Care was Eastern Iowa’s first provider of the Fraxel Laser Resurfacing treatment and we are proud to offer it to the Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Coralville, and neighboring areas.
Patients and staff alike are amazed with the results Fraxel Laser Resurfacing can provide. This newest generation of laser technology removes pigmented lesions such as melasma, age spots and sunspots on the face, neck, chest and hands. It also smoothes wrinkles and scars.
Fraxel is a non-invasive laser treatment that is fully customized to each patient and addresses many forms of aging. It’s the perfect solution for people who want their skin to look younger, but don’t want to look plastic or fake and can’t afford a lot of time away from work or their social life.
A Fraxel Laser skin treatment:
- Improves texture, tone and pore size
- Erases unwanted brown spots
- Smoothes wrinkles and acne scars
- Rejuvenates your face, neck, chest, and hands
- Requires minimal downtime
Fraxel is uniquely designed to create thousands of microscopic thermal spots. These spots form vertical columns of treated skin tissue that are separated and surrounded by unaffected and healthy skin.
This innovative approach allows us to treat only a small fraction of skin at a time, so it heals much faster than if the entire area were treated at once. In contrast to ablative laser therapies, Fraxel Laser treatment creates new epidermal skin in the treatment zones within 24 hours.
Safe and effective, the Fraxel laser is cleared by the FDA and has undergone extensive testing in the lab and out in the field. Expect one to two treatments to reduce pigment patches, four treatments to reduce wrinkles, and up to six treatments to reduce acne scars.
Fraxel Laser Resurfacing Before & After
Microneedling is a treatment that’s taken the country, the state of Iowa, and Infinity patients by storm. It’s fast. It’s effective. It’s virtually pain free. There is no down time or post procedure care.
What does it treat?
The MicroNeedling works to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and pigmentation. Because it does not use light or heat energy like a laser treatment does, it is especially useful for darker-skinned patients who may experience hyperpigmentation from laser heat or light.
After the initial microneedling procedure, the skin’s repair system (cells that synthesize new collagen) is active for up to six months. New collagen and elastin produce softer, firmer skin. A series of treatments is recommended. Talk to your Infinity provider about microneedling today.
Microneedling Before & After
Advanced MicroNeedling is a more aggressive procedure for patients with deeper wrinkles or scars or who want accelerated and amplified results. This treatment requires a day or two of social downtime. MicroNeedling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin, triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen and elastin. The procedure can be used on all skin types to address a variety of concerns, but is especially helpful for deep wrinkles, lip lines, stretch marks and acne scars. Most all areas of the body can be treated, unless your provider determines otherwise. Filler patients with deep lip lines may want to consider adding this treatment to their injectable filler appointments to achieve the benefits of volumizing and resurfacing in one convenient appointment.
Advanced Microneedling Before & After
Platelet Rich Plasma For Rejuvenating The Skin: PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma is a breakthrough in skin rejuvenation. It uses one’s own plasma to rejuvenate and reverse the signs of aging. Many have likened it to discovering the fountain of youth. Best of all, Platelet Rich Plasma, known as PRP, uses only your own plasma to restore youthful tone and texture.
How does PRP work?
PRP is created by drawing a small amount of blood from a patient – just like a typical blood draw for lab testing – and separating the blood components in a centrifuge system. The clear yellow plasma containing platelets and proteins is separated from the red blood cells. During this process, the platelets are concentrated. This “liquid gold” is microneedled or injected into the skin for rejuvenation. PRP treatments offer significant improvements in the skin’s texture and help with color, hydration, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars.
Platelets are our body’s natural reservoir of growth factors. When concentrated and injected into the skin, the contents of the platelets stimulate the body’s natural healing response.
There are two ways PRP can be administered. First, PRP is applied topically to treated skin during a microneedling treatment. The needle channels allow the PRP to penetrate the skin, resulting in increased collagen and elastin.
PRP is often administered in tandem with our popular microneedling procedure to pack a very powerful rejuvenating punch.
Microneedling is a procedure in which tiny (invisible to the naked eye) micro-injuries stimulate new collagen production and skin cell renewal. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with an overall improved appearance, softer tone and texture.
Automated microneedling also creates superficial, microscopic channels, which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
When used in conjunction with PRP, microneedling works to naturally plump the skin and improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks.
We are happy to offer our injectable filler patients the opportunity to have PRP injections during their appointment for a completely customized result.
Infinity Skin Care offers this area’s most extensive line-up of long-lasting, FDA-approved fillers, including Belotero Balance®, Juvedérm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, new Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Lyft and Voluma® XC.
CO2 Fractional Laser
For patients with deeper wrinkles, more severe sun damage, acne scars and textural issues, and who are able to take time off for more downtime than Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing, they may elect to choose CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
One of the great benefits of CO2 laser therapy is the versatility it provides during treatment. This ablative laser was created to deliver powerful results. Treatments are recommended for: acne scars, deep wrinkles, rough skin texture and dark spots on face, neck, hands and other parts of the body. A pre-treatment appointment is required. Expect up to 3 treatments for more extensive damage.
