Similar to a filler, subcisions are performed with a needle. What makes subcision unique, though, is what happens underneath the skin. Using a specialized needle, your physician is able to break apart the fibers in scar tissue, helping the scar to heal itself. This method is ideal for deep scarification on depressed scars.
Fillers can be a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to surgery. There are lots of dermal fillers on the market, and which one works best for you depends on the kind of scars you have. In general, dermal fillers are best for depressed scars. Some fillers even promote collagen production, working to make the scars disappear permanently over time. Typically, fillers are active and work under your skin anywhere from 6-18 months.
Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing
For severe scarring in specific areas, laser scar removal may be ideal. Using a fractional carbon dioxide laser, your doctor can reduce moderate to severe scarring with multiple laser treatments over the course of a few months.
