How does Acne Scar Treatment Work at Epiderma

Subcision for Acne Scars in Jayanagar | Epiderma Clinic help you make acne scars disappear permanently with the unique subcision therapy. Subcision is an incisionless surgical technique which addresses the 2 major issues associated with acne scar. The depression of acne scar is because of 2 reasons – development of fibrous band that connects the dermal layer with subcutaneous layer of skin and lack of collagen production after the healing process (post-acne). Subcision breaks the fibrosis, releases the dermal layer and triggers the collagen production resulting in reduction of scar depression. It is performed with hydrodermic needle of 24 G size. Other type of scars caused by wound, chicken pox or surgery can also be treated.
