Acne Scar Subcision
Depressed acne scars can be improved with subcisions. In this procedure, a sharp instrument is used to break up the firm scar tissue that tethers the skin surface to the underlying tissue. The surface of the skin is thus released from being bound to the bottom, and this results in a softened appearance. During the same time, hyaluronic acid fillers are also injected to provide a lifting effect and to stimulate growth of new collagen. This procedure can be combined with laser treatments for enhanced results. Multiple treatment sessions are required for the best outcome. Acne scar subcision is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not a service covered by insurance.
