SUBCISIONS

INTRODUCTION

Subcision is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat depressed scars, such as acne scars or surgical scars, by breaking up the fibrous bands that tether the scar tissue to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. This technique helps to release the scar and stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother and more even skin texture.

Subcision is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat depressed scars, such as acne scars or surgical scars, by breaking up the fibrous bands that tether the scar tissue to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. This technique helps to release the scar and stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother and more even skin texture.


What is Subcision:

Subcision involves the use of a specialized surgical instrument, such as a hypodermic needle or a blunt-tipped cannula, to mechanically disrupt the fibrous bands that create depressed scars. By creating controlled trauma beneath the scar tissue, subcision releases the scar from its tethering points, allowing the skin to elevate and fill in the depressed area naturally over time.


  • Improvement in the appearance of depressed scars, including acne scars and surgical scars.

  • Stimulates collagen production, leading to smoother and more even skin texture.

  • Minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime.


Procedure Details

During a subcision procedure, the treatment area is cleansed and numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort. The surgical instrument is then inserted beneath the skin through a tiny incision, and gentle movements are made to break up the fibrous bands tethering the scar tissue. The procedure may be performed in a single session or as part of a combination treatment plan, depending on the extent of scarring and the desired outcome.



Recovery Timeline

Recovery from subcision is relatively quick, with minimal downtime compared to more invasive surgical procedures. Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site, which typically resolves within a few days. Most individuals can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure, although strenuous exercise and sun exposure should be avoided temporarily.

Subcision is generally safe when performed by a qualified dermatologist.  However, potential side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and infection.  There's also a slight risk of scarring or uneven pigmentation at the treatment site.  It's important to consult with your doctor to determine if subcision is right for you, especially if you have any underlying skin conditions or concerns about scarring.

Q1 Will subcision completely eliminate my acne scars?

Subcision is not a guaranteed cure for acne scars, but it can significantly improve their appearance by lifting and smoothing depressed scar tissue.  Multiple sessions may be needed for optimal results.


Q2 What type of acne scars does subcision work best for?

Subcision is most effective for treating rolling acne scars, characterized by uneven, wave-like depressions in the skin.  It may not be as effective for other types of acne scars, such as ice pick scars or box scars.


The cost of subcision can vary depending on the geographic location, the doctor's experience, the number and severity of scars treated, and the number of sessions required.  In the United States, the average cost per treatment session can range from $500 to $1,500.  Some dermatology practices may offer financing options.
