Saline subcision for acne scarring
I believe you are referring to saline subcision. This technique is appropriate for certain forms of depressed acne scarring. I typically advise a series of 3 treatment sessions at 3-4 week intervals. Patience is also advised, as the improvement occurs gradually over several months to a year. The only side effect of treatment I have encountered is a variable degree of bruising (which can last up to 7-10 days) which can be camouflaged with make-up.
