Acne scars are a very common problem. Icepick, boxcar and rolling scars can be a difficult challenge to improve and there are many treatments out there, but they are not always successful.
How is Subcision for Acne Scars performed?
Subcision for acne scars is a minimally invasive procedure where a needle is used to puncture through the surface of the skin and cut the fibrous scar tissue that’s pulling down the surface of the skin. Because the depressions are released from the deep structures, this allows new connective tissue to form.
With the Drill and Fill technique, Dr. Lockwood injects a hyaluronic acid filler during the subcision procedure. This gives the acne scar volume by lifting up the depth of the scar depression and makes it more level with the surrounding skin.
What’s the recovery like after Subcision for Acne Scars?
Subcision for Acne Scars is a very quick and effective procedure. It can result in some bruising and minor swelling. Often, more than one treatment may be needed for best results.
