WHAT IS SUBCISION?
During the subcision treatment, a specially designed needle or blunt cannula is used to break the fibrotic strands that tether the depressed scar to the underlying tissue. This minor surgical procedure aims to release the scar and improve its appearance.
The procedure begins with the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated. Once the skin is numbed, the needle or cannula is inserted into the skin surface, targeting the fibrotic strands connected to the depressed scar. As the fibrotic strands are severed, the scar is released from the underlying tissue.
The subcision technique promotes the production of collagen in the treated area, helping to improve the texture and overall appearance of the scar. It is commonly used to treat depressed scars caused by conditions such as acne, trauma, or previous surgical procedures.
After the procedure, patients may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness in the treated area. These effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days. After care is easy and does not need any extreme precautions. Consultation with our physician will help you determine if you could benefit form subcision.
