What Does Subcision Treat?

Subcision is one of the best Acne Scar treatments in Singapore.

Subcision is most effective for depressed acne scars like ice-pick acne scars and rolling scars.

How Does Subcision Work?

Subcision was first described by two New York dermatologists in 1995.

The term subcision for acne scarring means subcutaneous incisionless surgery.

Subcision treatment involves releasing fibrous scar tissues that hold down the depressed scars from the horizontal plane.

Following which, fillers help to volumise and stimulate collagen synthesis.

Lasers are also used for synergistic effect as it targets scars on a vertical axis.

Dr Boey performs subcision first to release the tethered scars before using Lasers to stimulate collagen.

Fillers Enhance Results

We use fillers after subcision for immediate effect as well as long term stimulation of collagen. Filler is not used as a treatment for the scar itself but as a buffer or spacer.

Subcision itself gives permanent results while filler only lasts one to two years at maximum.

Tiny amounts of filler (0.05 mL into each scar) act as a buffer which stops the bonds from reforming.

Commonly used fillers include:

  • PDRN – Rejuran,
  • Hyaluronic acid fillers – Juvederm, Restylane
  • Bio-stimulatory fillers – Ellanse, Radiesse.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is not suitable for Subcision?
Subcision is not performed in individuals with active skin infection, and in individuals who are prone to abnormal skin scarring such as hypertrophic and keloidal scars.

If you are on blood thinners, or have a bleeding disorder this increases the risk of bleeding during and after procedure.

What is the Subcision treatment process?
Your scars are mapped out with a surgical pen.

Local anaesthesia is injected to numb the skin.

We use a variety of needles catered to the scar type. Typically, we use either a hypodermic 18-23G needle, or a 18G Nokor needle.

Upon insertion, the needle is directed to break the bands of scar tissue beneath the skin.

Once the procedure is complete, pressure is applied to reduce bleeding and swelling.

A topical antibiotic ointment is applied to prevent infection and encourage healing.

How long does it take to recover from subcision?
Immediately after the procedure, there will be some redness and swelling that lasts 2-3 days.

Pain is minimal post-procedure.

Bruising is common after the procedure and will fade in 5-7 days.

How many sessions of Subcision do I need?
Depending on individual, scar location, scar depth and skin type, generally 2-4 subcision sessions spaced about 1 month apart will give the best results.
How much does Subcision treatment cost?
