Subcision in Montreal

Acne scars come in different forms and require different treatments. Some patients have to deal with things like spots and pigmentation in the dermis. This requires removing the uppermost layer of the skin and boosting new collagen development in the dermis. Pitted or depressed acne scars require a different procedure. At Acne-Derma, we encourage patients to consider subcision in Montreal.

What is Subcision?

Subcision is a simple and safe procedure that is very effective against depressed acne scars. It can be carried out in our clinic and doesn’t take a lot of time. If you’re looking for an effective way to treat depressed scars and improve your skin’s overall texture, this is a great option for you.

How Does Subcision in Montreal Work?

We use the best subcision techniques to get the best results for our patients. Our dermatologist will first examine your skin and scarring carefully to understand the true extent of the damage. Once we have understood your skin’s type, texture, and the extent of the damage, we will come up with an effective treatment plan. Here’s a look at how it works:

  • Our doctor inserts a small subcision needle underneath the scar.
  • He then gently moves the needle around to release the skin on the scar from the dermis underneath, loosening the scar tissue and allowing the skin to spring back into place.
  • This treatment is suitable for all kinds of scarring, including keloid scars.
  • Subcision can be used in combination with dermal fillers for better results. Our doctor will inject dermal fillers immediately after releasing the scar from the dermal layer.

Subcision combined with dermal fillers provide immediate results. Our doctor will examine your skin and determine whether this is a good option for you. This procedure is effective without dermal fillers as well, you will just need to more wait for more time to see the results.

What Can You Expect After Subcision in Montreal?

Subcision is a somewhat invasive procedure so you can expect light bruising and discoloration around the treatment site. This discoloration will fade away after a few days or weeks, especially if you follow the skincare routine recommended by our dermatologist. It is a good idea to follow the aftercare instructions provided by our doctor carefully to ensure the treatment is successful.

You might experience some soreness and pain immediately after the procedure, but it will go away within a few hours. If you feel the pain is excessive and it has lingered for several days, don’t hesitate to contact us immediately.

Is The Treatment For You?

Dermatological treatments are only effective if they’re tailored according to the patient’s requirements. Our doctor will examine your skin, understand the nature of your scars, and then recommend the best treatment option for you. Sometimes the scars can be treated with less invasive treatments and don’t require subcision.
