Discover smoother, scar-free skin with Subcision at American Skin Institute—a cutting-edge treatment designed to effectively address acne scars and other types of depressed scars. Subcision offers a non-surgical solution by breaking down underlying scar tissue, stimulating collagen production, and restoring skin’s natural texture and smoothness.

Ideal candidates for Subcision include individuals with acne scars, surgical scars, or traumatic scars that have caused depressions in the skin. During the procedure, our skilled dermatologists use a fine needle to release fibrous bands beneath the scar tissue, allowing the skin to elevate and fill naturally over time. Numbing agents are applied beforehand to ensure a comfortable experience with minimal discomfort. Typically, multiple Subcision sessions spaced several weeks apart are recommended for optimal results, depending on the severity and extent of the scars.

This treatment is effective on various areas of the body, including the face (especially cheeks and temples) and other areas affected by acne scars, such as the back and chest. Subcision is well-tolerated, and any potential discomfort during the procedure is mitigated by numbing agents. Temporary bruising and swelling may occur post-treatment, but these effects are mild and subside quickly. Downtime is minimal, allowing most patients to resume their daily activities immediately. Transform your skin with Subcision at American Skin Institute—schedule a consultation today to explore how this advanced treatment can help you achieve smoother, rejuvenated skin without the need for invasive surgery. Unlock newfound confidence with clearer, more even skin texture!
