Subcision is a medical procedure used for the treatment of certain types of scars, particularly depressed or atrophic scars caused by acne, surgery, or other injuries.
What is Subcision
Subcision is a minimally invasive technique that involves breaking up fibrous scar tissue beneath the skin’s surface to promote the formation of new collagen, which can help improve the texture and appearance of the scar.
How does it work
During the procedure, a small needle or surgical blade is inserted into the skin and moved back and forth to detach the scar tissue from the underlying tissue.
This process helps to release the tension and fibrous bands that are pulling the skin downward, causing the depressed appearance of the scar.
By disrupting the scar tissue, subcision promotes the formation of new collagen, which can help improve the texture and appearance of the scar.
Subcision helps to break up the fibrous scar tissue beneath the skin’s surface, allowing the depressed or atrophic scar to rise to a more even level with the surrounding skin. This can result in a smoother and less noticeable scar.
The process of subcision stimulates the production of new collagen in the treated area. Collagen is a protein that helps to support the skin’s structure and improve its texture. Increased collagen production can contribute to long-term improvements in the appearance of the scar.
Subcision helps stimulate collagen production, resulting in an improvement in skin texture.
Subcision provides a permanent improvement in the appearance of scars. By releasing the tension and fibrous bands that contribute to the depressed appearance of the scar, subcision helps to maintain the improved results over time.Subcision helps stimulate collagen production, resulting in an improvement in skin texture.
Subcision can be used to treat a variety of depressed or atrophic scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and traumatic scars. It can be combined with other scar treatments, such as dermal fillers or laser therapy, to further enhance the results.
The treatment sessions are typically scheduled one month apart. Individuals with more severe scars may require additional sessions to achieve optimal results.
