The mighty tiny needle

Sometimes all you need is a needle and really skilled hands πŸ€—

One of my favorite things to do at the start of most scar revision treatment – subcision!!! βœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈβœ‚οΈ When wounds heal, they form fibrous bonds under the skin. These act like anchors that weigh the skin down that’s why sometimes other treatments, be it laser, fractional RF/ needling, chemical peels, don’t work. During subcision, we cut the fibers to release the skin. It may take several subcision sessions to do so as sometimes these bonds reconnect. But doing this step on appropriate scars will greatly improve the result of succeeding treatments! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
