Can subcision alone improve an atrophic scar?
Doctor Answers 3
Yes, subcision alone can improve depressed, and anchored scars
Often multiple sessions are needed. There are numerous methods to perform their procedure using everything from small needle to special sharp edge needles. The video below also shows how I perform standard subcision using both filler needles for small tethered scars, then a larger 21 and 23 g. needle for larger, deeper and more severe scars.
A combination of surgical, filler and energy devices targeted at specific scar types will give you the very best results.
All the best,

A combination approach is best used for these type of scars with lasers such as eMatrix or Fraxel and fillers as well. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
