Acne is one of the most difficult skin conditions to deal with. When you finally get acne to clear up on your skin, it can be disheartening to find that you have scarring that is left in its wake. This can cause insecurities that can be difficult to overcome. However, there are some steps you can take to eliminate or lessen the scars that are left behind from severe acne. Today, we would like to talk about a method called subcision. Skin And Body Refinery is here to talk about what this process looks like, and what it can do to help eliminate the appearance of acne scarring.

How Subcision Works for Acne Scars

People that suffer from rolling scars or other scars that are often a result of serious acne issues, can find reprieve from this scarring using subcision. If you feel a scar, you will notice that it is thick and firm to the touch. Subcision works to help break down scars using a sharp instrument. The tissue that makes up a scar binds down the top layers of the skin to the under layers to create these unsightly scars. Once this tissue has been subcised, a filler is injected into the spaces that have been broken open to help cause the skin to start heating and fill in those gaps.

Benefits of Subcision; Is it Effective?

There are several reasons why people decide to go with subcision to get rid of their acne scars. Here are some of the top benefits:
– Effectiveness of Treatment: Many people turn to subcision for acne scar treatment because it is such an effective treatment. They can see significant improvement in the appearance of their scars.
– Difficult Scar Improvement: One of the biggest reasons that subcision is such a great treatment for acne scarring is because it can treat rolling or depressed scars that can be particularly difficult to treat. When hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are used with subcision, even the toughest ice pick and boxcar scars which are quite deep can be successfully treated. This filler can plump up the skin where the depressions are to significantly improve the appearance of these scars.
– Promotes New Collagen: This form of acne scar treatment is a way to help promote new collagen growth in the skin. This is a way to promote your body’s natural healing process to tighten and plump the skin.
– Non-Invasive: Most people find this form of acne treatment a comfortable form of treatment. Not only is it relatively painless, there is also little to no downtime after the treatment is complete.
