Renew Your Skin's Beauty: Acne Scar Subcision Treatment in Colorado

Why You Need It:

  • Subcision is a simple and safe procedure for the treatment of rolling or tethered box-scar acne scars.
  • During this treatment, a blunt cannula is inserted under the scar and moved back and forth to release fibrotic strands and form new connective tissue, thereby elevating the "scooped" appearance of acne scars. 
  • Performed by aesthetic injectors who will keep you looking natural and refreshed.

What to Expect:

  • Injections may feel like a light pinching sensation or pressure. Most patients report a 2 out of 10 level of discomfort.
  • We use injectable lidocaine to numb during this procedure so you may feel numb for an hour or so after the appointment.
  • Bruising can occur.
  • Appointment Length:

    • 30 minutes.
  • Frequency of Treatment:

    • Typically, 1-3 treatments are necessary for optimal results.
  • Downtime:

    • You may experience redness, tenderness, swelling, and bruising for a few days. Most people are comfortable with their appearance and are happy to leave the clinic and resume normal activities.

Post Care:

  • You may take Acetaminophen/Tylenol if you experience any mild tenderness/discomfort.
  • You may apply ice wrapped in a cloth to help reduce swelling.
  • Anytime a needle is introduced to the skin, there is a possibility of bruising. You may apply Arnica topically or take Arnica tablets orally to help decrease the amount of bruising.
  • Avoid aerobic and strenuous exercise for the rest of the day to minimize bruising.
