Scar Subcision

Acne often leaves behind depressed scars looking like craters. An effective treatment for that is the scar subcision method, where special needles are used to break down scar tissue. This process stimulates collagen growth, and triggers scar repair and healing phase, letting nature works its magic at improving the appearance of scars overtime.

This procedure is often combined with other treatment methods such as lasers, chemical peels, and skinboosters as added measures for even better improvement.

Subcision can treat various scar types, scar depths, and skin types, and can improve upon both new and old acne scars. This process is suitable for both males and females.

Acne scar subcision is suitable for Boxcar Scars, Rolling Scars, Icepick Scars and Pitted/Depressed Scars.

The number of sessions required depends on the scar location, depth and type. As a general estimate, 2-4 sessions should give the best results.

Bruising and redness are normal after subcision and should lessen during the healing phase. After the procedure, there will be redness and swelling which can last for 2-3 days. There may be bruising which lasts for roughly 7-10 days.
