Remove deep acne scars and surgical scars that present your best face. Acne scarring is characterized by deep pits, punched out scars, and rolling depressions. Scar tissue connections from the surface to deeper skin layers develop fixed acne scar cracks in the skin, which can be a substantial source of self-loss. A laser can help to resurface the skin, remove redness, and improve skin tone after years of acne. In contrast, the laser treatment cannot eliminate acne scars tissue or deep dermal attachments that produce pits. Subcision should be included in any acne scarring treatment. By releasing these deep scar tissue attachments, the overlying skin is smoothed, erasing pits, rolling depressions, hypertrophic scars and boxcar scars.

It is called the science of Subcision. Pits, boxcars, punched out, and rolling acne scarring are caused by scar tissue created by healing acne procedure. Scar tissue forms deep dermal attachments that pull the skin’s outer layers down and cause depressions. This is also true for scars that have become depressed for any reason. Subcision removes the deep dermal scar tissue attachments that prevent the skin from migrating. This can be done with either a Nokor needle or a subcision cannula. Because the cannula is inserted beneath the skin’s surface, it can cut through these deep dermal attachments, lifting depressed/pitted scars.
Yes. Only subcision has been found to remove the deep dermal scar tissue attachments that cause depressed acne and overall scarring. It works by cutting through these attachments bluntly, allowing the skin to lift back to its natural position and generating significantly less visible depressions. This smoothes the overlaying skin, considerably enhancing the appearance of your scars.
Yes. The results of surgical scar removal are permanent once they are eliminated.
No, assuming you don’t have active acne, this is highly unlikely.
No, subcision must be performed by a skilled doctor with subcision experience.
No. Subcision does not appear to cause acne.
Acne scars frequently cause damage to places beneath the dermis. Fibrosis/scarring can cause the scar to be connected to deeper structures by affecting the underlying tissues and fat. Lipoatrophy (fat loss) may occur as a result of the inflammatory mediators released by the acneic process. Because collagen has a high water content, heat from lasers and RF passes through it preferentially. Heating collagen causes it to rebuild while simultaneously contracting. If the collagen fibre linkages to the deeper tissue are not disrupted, these heating devices have the potential to worsen the appearance of scars. No there will be no scars due to subcision.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation may occur in patients by laser resurfacing with darker skin types who have not been pretreated with a pigment block prior to the therapy. Our skilled cosmetic cosmetic doctors will assess your risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation prior to your subcision treatment. As if acne wasn’t already irritating, pimples can leave a permanent mark. Acne scars cause depression or textural change on the surface of your skin, whereas post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation leaves a purple, grey, or brown mark.
No. This is quite probable. In the early treatment
Subcision is usually performed by doctors experienced in dermatology, plastic surgery or cosmetic medicine. Skin Club’s Cosmetic Doctors experts are all well-versed in the field of scar removal and subcision.
Subcision has only a few limitations. There are a few that exist:
Those who are sensitive to keloid scars.
Infection is present in the treatment area.
Acne in the treatment area is active.
Use of accutane/orotane on a regular basis.
Breast-feeding or pregnancy.
Those who use blood thinners are more likely to bruise, however our skilled Cosmetic Physicians may still recommend the therapy if it is deemed suitable.
Blood thinner users are more likely to bruise, however, our expert Cosmetic Physicians may still recommend the surgery if it is deemed appropriate. After that, a blunt cannula is inserted beneath the skin to loosen deep dermal scar and chemical peels attachments, allowing the overlying skin to lift back up to its original position, scar tissue-free. By flattening the top skin, improves the appearance of scar depressions.
Subcision with a blunt cannula is less painful than with a sharp needle, and most patients can tolerate it without anaesthesia. Anaesthesia is not recommended when using PRP because it lowers platelet treatment. No, once the local anaesthetic has been given to the treatment area, subcision is absolutely minimal discomfort.
There are hazards involved with any medical procedure that you should be aware of. Fortunately, the risks are few. The creation of a scar is the most serious risk. There may also be bleeding, which, if trapped beneath the skin, might result in a haematoma. The use of tumescent anaesthesia minimises this risk. A haematoma may require aggressive treatment. Numbness in the subsiding areas is common and might last two to four months. Permanent numbness is quite uncommon.
There is a risk of nerve injury leading to muscle weakness — this is a very rare complication of subcision. A temporary nodule under the skin may appear on occasion; these are collagen nodules that usually settle on their own or with a massage. There can be no guarantee of any certain level of improvement, and often just a modest improvement occurs.
Infection is extremely rare
Hyperpigmentation is a result of an inflammatory reaction. This is an odd thing when properly examined by a Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors Cosmetic Doctor and pre-treated with pigment blocking creams prior to surgery if necessary.
Cannula subcision may be required for different areas of the face depending on the severity and extent of scars, and each location may be treated once, twice, or even three times. A normal patient may require two to three sessions of subcision therapy.
Subcision is a straightforward and safe office surgery procedure for treating depressed acne scars. It is most effective when combined with other treatments such as laser, derma roller, and scar revision.
Photodynamic therapy, often known as Blue Light therapy, is a relatively new treatment option for patients suffering from moderate to severe acne.
The doctor will first apply a photosensitizing chemical to the affected parts of your skin, which will then be clothed and kept for around 3 hours. This allows your skin’s oil glands to absorb the photosensitizing substance.
After 3 hours, the doctor shines a red or blue light on the affected skin areas for up to 20 minutes. The light causes the photosensitizing chemical, which kills the bacteria that cause acne and reduces the oil glands.
After this treatment, you will be advised to stay indoors for a month and avoid sunlight exposure and bright lights. You will also be requested to stop the use of aspirin and ibuprofen, which can raise the risk of bleeding. Three to four therapy sessions, each lasting about four hours, are normally indicated, and they should be scheduled three to four weeks apart.
Yes. This process will almost probably cause you to bruise. This usually goes in 2-4 days and is easily concealed with makeup. We suggest icing for 10 minutes every 2 hours on the day of the surgery
We suggest that you stay from wearing cosmetics for the first 24 hours following your operation. This helps the small cannula entry points to heal before applying cosmetics, minimizing the risk of infection.
We recommend that you refrain from drinking alcohol for 24 hours following your surgery. This is because alcohol causes the tiny blood vessels in your skin to dilate. This is why, after taking alcohol, some people appear flushed. This can result in swelling in the 24 hours following the subcision.
The effects are usually noticeable 2-4 weeks after the operation, but the complete results are visible three months after the last subcision treatment.
Results are normally seen two to four weeks following the procedure, with full results visible three months after the last subcision therapy.
Skin resurfacing laser: – This lowers scarring redness while also smoothing and rejuvenating damaged skin.
Radiofrequency skin needling:- One of our most intensive scarring treatments, offering excellent changes in scarring as well as skin quality and tightness.
Skin needling with a Dermapen:- This product should be part of any good skin rejuvenation regimen. Skin needling is an excellent method for increasing collagen formation and reducing scarring without requiring any downtime. This treatment is well-known for producing consistent and positive effects.
LED light therapy:- enhances skin texture and tone speeding up the healing after any cosmetic facial treatment.
Dermal fillers: – Scarring causes the fat beneath the skin’s surface to fade and shrink. As a result, acne scar depressions may occur. Dermal filler can be utilized to restore volume to the skin.
Except when washing, carefully remove the treatment areas with your fingers for the first 24 hours. Infection can arise if you use your bare fingers to contact the treated area. If you have a subcision on your face, you can resume normal washing or bathing activities after 8-12 hours unless otherwise ordered. If you had scar subcision on your body, please do not soak or bathe for more than 24 hours.
If you feel bloated or sore, simply massage a clean wet washcloth or other compresses using clean cold water to the treatment area(s) for 10- 15 minutes on and off as needed for the first 24 hours. This will help to reduce swelling and pain.
Mild swelling over the treatment area is normal and usually lasts less than 48 hours, but it has been observed that swelling can last up to a week.
Subcision can sometimes have immediate results. Anaesthesia frequently results in severe oedema. This could take a day or two to settle. The results are usually visible within 1 to 3 months. The long-term effect is clear because the skin continues to repair for up to a year after treatment.
TCA stands for TriChloroacetic Acid Chemical Reconstitution of Skin Scars and is a treatment for repairing deep atrophic scars in the skin produced by acne, rosacea, or mechanical trauma such as lip or nose piercing. The best thing about the TCA cross is that it produces long-lasting results in a few treatments and is a very safe and effective procedure when performed by a expert.
TCA cross produces long-lasting results after only a few sessions. This is done by applying a powerful solution to the base of the acne scar. The reshaping process begins immediately following the treatment when cells in the dermis are activated, producing new collagen and raising the scar. After the deeper acne scars have been lifted to a certain depth, the skin can be smoothed out using partial CO2 laser skin rejuvenation.
After the procedure, no strenuous exercise is prohibited for 48 hours.
Ibuprofen and aspirin are both blood thinners that should be avoided for 48 hours after the surgery.
Avoid heated food and drink for the first 24 hours following the treatment.
For at least 48 hours, keep the dressings on the injuries at the entry point. Adjust as needed.
For at least 48 hours following the operation, avoid putting pressure, pressure and harsh cleaning on the face.
Subcision without the use of fillers is definitely successful. Subcision may be more effective than lasers in treating deep cystic acne scars that are attached to the skin.
