Needle subcision for scars

Needle subcision for scars

Scars, whether caused by acne, wrinkles or cellulite can be easily eradicated with subcision. The ideal option for depressed scars, needle subcision involves the use of a sterile, micro needle to break up the hard, fibrous scar tissue beneath the depression. Local anesthesia is first performed before proceeding with this minor surgical procedure. Once the needle is inserted into the indented area, it is moved back and forth to free overlaying skin and elevate the depth of the scar. This action releases natural collagen mechanism in the skin to promote healing. Results are immediate and can be maintained with repeated treatments.
