Does subcision work for acne scars. So subcision, for those who don’t know is where you take a needle or some sort of trocar device, and you go underneath an acne scar. The idea here is by undermining the issue, releasing the scar, the body will fill this up with something ideally blood or scar, and this will heal in a better position in theory. This sounds amazing. And I’ve tried this for years, uh, beginning in 2005. What I noticed was that patients looked good during this inflammatory period, but at around three months they looked exactly the same. And here’s why if you put blood there, your body at absorbance blood, it’s used to absorbing blood. It doesn’t work in that manner. So rather than just subsidizing a scar, we’re gonna do much better. Our patients are gonna do much better by subsidizing and putting something in between that separation.
Now to prevent it from reattaching. I used to use hyaluronic acid a lot and I still do, but my preferred treatment here is Bellafill. Bellafill is a permanent, um, application of filler. It’s made up of a couple of things, including polymethacrylate, which is the permanent substance or semi-permanent substance, depending on what vantage point you have, as well as collagen by placing this filler there, you’re gonna have a permanent separate between the skin and the scar. And you’re gonna prevent that from re adhesing. So does subs precision work by itself? I would say no, but when you add a good filler product, in my opinion, LIC, is that product for this purpose? Um, it does.
