What are Subcision For Acne Scars?

Subcision for acne scars treatments are a type of procedure to break down the tethered acne scars in the skin. The treatment involves a needle that breaks down the scar tissue which is tethered down. From that point, as the skin begins to heal, the treatment will help to improve collagen production, promoting the skin’s natural healing process further.

Those who have unevenness or depression on the surface of the skin will benefit from subcision for acne scars treatments.

How do Subcision For Acne Scars treatments work?

A needle will be used to go through the scar tissue within the skin underneath. Then, the scars will be lifted up naturally. The procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t involve any traditional surgical methods.

Type of acne scars ideal for subcision

Not all acne scars can be treated with subcision. The common types of acne scars suitable for subcision include rolling acne scars, boxcar scars, hypertrophic scars and certain ice pick scars.

  • Rolling Acne Scars: These acne scars are similar to a wave and are caused by the skin’s surface that gets damaged.

  • Boxcar Scars: Boxcar scars are moderately deep depressions with angular and defined edges. These scars are usually caused by a bad breakout on the skin.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: These types of acne scars are caused by an exaggerated healing response to a skin injury. They are pink or red in colour.
  • Ice Pick Scars: Not all ice pick scars are suitable for subcision. But those that are suitable would be the ones that are small and have a deep hole within the skin.
