SUBCISION WITH DERMAL FILLERS
Subcision involves using the sharp edge of a hypodermic needle to cut fibrotic adhesions that tether the scar to to the underlying tissue.
WHY ARE FILLERS INJECTED AFTER SUBCISION?
Dermal fillers are injected post-subcision to separate the cut fibrotic adhesions from the underlying tissue as well as to promote new collagen formation and scar remodelling.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT DERMAL FILLERS THAT CAN BE USED FOR FILLER SUBCISION?
Typically in our practice, Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Radiesse (calcium hydroxyapatite) or Rejuran-S (polynucleotide, PN) can be used for filler subcision.
