Subcision for Acne Scars

Subcision is a simple and safe procedure used to treat acne scars on the face. It is a procedure where a small needle will be placed under the skin parallel to the skin surface. It is then gently retracted and breakdown the scar tissue. It can be combined with other treatments such as PRP and laser treatment for maximum efficacy and quicker results as these can promote cellular regeneration and to resurface and blend the scar.

Subcision procedure targets tethered or anchored acne scars. The treatment can be performed on all skin types, and it helps to visibly improve the depth of the scar depressions, making your skin look better and more youthful. Results are instant with little to no downtime:

  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Effectively treating acne scars
  • Safe and fast results
  • Minimal downtime and minimal risk

Does Subcision Hurt?

Subcision may hurt a little, but every effort is made to make sure the specific area is numb prior to the insertion of the needle. Most people do not feel anything except for the numbing procedure.

Subcision has very minimal side effects. After the procedure, you may experience bruising and soreness.
