Subcision Acne Scars

Subcision Acne Scars

Acne scarring can be a source of frustration for many individuals. For regular acne scars, there are acne scar treatment options such as chemical peels and laser treatments which can be considered. For atrophic acne scars, which occur when the skin doesn't produce enough collagen while healing, this can lead to sunken or indented scars.

A few examples of atrophic acne scars are boxcar, rolling, and ice pick scars, each with distinct appearances and depths. Tethered scars, which are commonly associated with rolling scars, are scars anchored or bound to the underlying skin tissue by fibrous bands.

The above mentioned deep acne scars can be difficult for conventional acne scar treatments to effectively smoothen. One way to treat acne scars of the above classifications is through subcision.

How can subcision help with acne scars?

Subcision is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves using a specialized needle to separate the scar tissue from the underlying skin. This process lifts a depressed scar and promotes the collagen growth, resulting in a smoother appearance. The advantages of subcision include its minimally invasive nature, minimal downtime, and effectiveness for certain types of acne scars.

Subcision acne scars treatment is also generally considered to be an effective, safe and affordable treatment option.

Following the procedure, some bruising and swelling are expected but should subside within a week. It is essential to follow post-procedure care instructions provided by a doctor to minimize the risk of complications and ensure the best possible outcome.
