Subscision for Treatment of Acne Scarring
Subscision is the use of a fine needle to break up scar tissue under certain types of acne scars. The scar tissue underneath the surface of the skin pulls the top layers of skin down, creating a depression. Most commonly these types of scars occur with severe cystic acne. They are usually found on the cheeks, temples and chin but can occur anywhere.
Many patients find that a combination of subscision with the Fraxel laser is most effective in treating acne scars. You may need a total of 4-6 treatments of subscision and laser. We provide those treatments here in our Seattle dermatology office and laser center.
