SUBCISION FOR ACNE SCARS

For stubborn acne and surgical scars subcision, a minor surgical procedure is used for treating depressed scars and wrinkles. This procedure is performed using a special hypodermic needle which is inserted through a puncture in the skin surface. The sharp edge of the needle is used to break fibrotic strands that are tethering the scar to the underlying tissue. The release of the fibrotic strands and new collagen deposition caused by wound healing leads to cosmetic improvement of the scar.
