Subscission

Subscission

An incisionless surgical technique where the main principle is to break the fibrotic strands, which tether the scar to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. Here scars are marked with a marking ink or pen. Local infiltration anesthesia with 2% xylocaine is desirable. A no. 18 or 20 gauge needle is inserted adjacent to the scar with the bevel upwards parallel to the skin surface, into the deep dermis and moved back and forth and in a fan-like motion under the scar, to release fibrous bands. Indicated for mainly Post acne rolling scars, chicken pox scar, wrinkles etc
