Your blood consists of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. During the treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn, similar to a blood test, and spun in a centrifuge. This process separates the blood cells from the plasma and platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected into the skin, promoting collagen production and the development of new skin cells.

Subcision is an acne scar treatment that focuses on depressed scars. It utilizes a specialized hypodermic needle to address the underlying cause of skin depression and minimize the appearance of scarring.

This controlled trauma induces slight bleeding under the skin, which plays a beneficial role in the healing process. By cutting the connective tissue beneath the scar, the treatment helps release the downward tension on the skin, resulting in the correction of the depressed shape of the scar.
