Why do dermal stamp when you can do subcision?

This is for rolling/boxcar acne scars. Please don't bring up lasers lol. Subcision cuts tethering underneath the scar and in doing so the injury triggers collagen rebuilding. Dermal stamping causes micro wounds to also induce collagen, while it supposedly also cuts some of the tethering. Some Combine the two, why would they?
