Subcision & Filler For Depressed Scars; Microneedling For Blending Its Tone & Texture
As a rule, depressed inear scars, from any cause, including trauma, may be raised up using subcision with or without the addition of a filler for both its immediate benefits and its ability to stimulate the production of new, native collagen and elastic fiber synthesis (neocollagenesis/neoelastogenesis).
Once elevated to more flush with the surrounding skin surface, microneedling may be used to further blend the surface tone and texture of the scar with that of the surrounding normal skin.
It is important that you seek consultation with a board certified cosmetic dermatologist with skill and expertise in scar treatments. A dermatologist will also be able to prescribe for you a regimen for overall maintenance of skin following treatment. For more information on the above, check out the archives of RealSelf.com.
I wish you the best of luck.
