Tethered scars? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs, NJ
Scars that attach to the underlying layers of skin ....
I am in the process of making a video on how to assess scar types at the moment- this will give viewers some idea of ideal treatments. For these types of scars, surgical subcision (with or without filling), is the best solution.
All the best

If the scars are attached to the skin when you pull up then they are tethered. Subcision usually works best for these types of scars. Please consult an expert for scar treatments. To finish off the scars afterwards you will need Fraxel laser. Best, Dr. Green
