Subcision Boston

How Subcision Works

The procedure begins with insufflating the skin with a lidocaine mixture to numb the area. Then, using the microcannula, the subcutaneous layers are accessed to release scar tissue. Subcision effectively breaks fibrotic tethers between the subcutaneous fat and the dermis, which helps to elevate the scar and smooth out the skin surface.

Common Questions About Subcision

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Subcision typically requires several sessions to achieve optimal results. The exact number varies depending on the severity of the scarring and the individual’s skin condition.

Can the Skin Re-Tether?

Yes, it is possible for the skin to re-tether after subcision. To prevent this, Dr. Shanthala may recommend injecting dermal fillers post-procedure, which helps maintain the elevation of the scar tissue.

Enhancing the Results

Dr. Shanthala enhances subcision results by incorporating various treatments such as:

•Dermal Fillers: Sometimes used immediately after subcision to prevent re-tethering.

•Energy-Based Procedures: Combining subcision with radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, fractional and non-ablative lasers ensures deeper treatment and better outcomes.

•Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Exosomes: These are used to promote skin remodeling and accelerate healing.

Pre and Post Procedure Considerations

Before Subcision

Laser treatments may be performed before subcision to prepare the skin, making it easier to target and treat scars effectively.

After Subcision

Following subcision, treatments like RF or Ultraclear or CO2 or Fraxel laser therapies can be administered to enhance the benefits. Dr. Shanthala also employs techniques such as hydrodissection or microdissection for more precise adjustments in smaller areas.
