Subcision Acne Scar

Subcision is an effective acne scar treatment that utilize a special needle, carefully inserted beneath the damaged skin to target and break apart the fibrous bands causing the scars.

This treatment greatly reduces the scar appearance by levelling the damaged area with the remaining of the skin’s surface. Visible results can be seen after the first session.

Does Subcision work? - Acne scar Removal

Does Subcision work?

Deep acne scars are usually caused by 2 main reasons,  loss of collagen in the skin and formation of fibrous bands that pulls the skin surface downwards, causing a depressed spot in the skin.

When subcision procedure is performed, a special needle is used to break down the fibrous bands allowing the depressed scars to resurface. During this process, the disrupted blood vessels will promote blood accumulation on the treated area.

This coagulation of blood will prevents any new attachments of fibrous bands to your scars allowing smoother healing. Concurrently, new collagen will produce and improve the appearance of the scars over time.

Other acne scars treatments such as Fractional Co2 laser and Rejuran S can be combined to stimulate collagen production and improve results.

At Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic, our doctors are fully equipped and trained for acne scars procedure such as Subcision.

Difference between Subcision & other acne scars treatment

Identify the scars

In order to decide the best treatment for acne scars, it is important to differentiate the types of scars. Simply, acne scars are categorised into two types:

  • Atrophic Scars (Due to lack of collagen) – Rolling, Boxcar & Icepick scars
  • Hypertrophic Scars (Net gain of Collagen) – Keloids 

Over 90% of acne scars are atrophic acne scars. It can appear flat or sunken on the skin, appearing like a hole on the skin. Fractional CO2 laser is a very effective treatment for all atrophic scars, however treatments such as subcision will yield a slightly better results for Shallow rolling scars. It is important to let the doctor determine the type of scars in order to provide a customised treatments.
