It is a term that derives from subcutaneous incisionless surgery, which means subcutaneous surgery without incision.
It is a simple surgical procedure that is performed in the following way first infiltrates each of the depressed scars or cellulite wells and with precise instruments the fibrosis is broken allowing a new tissue to be produced, the factors of the coagulation are activated Fibrinogen present in the plasma will be transformed into fibrin, the granulation tissue penetrates the fibrin which will be replaced by vascularized fibrous tissue, with consequent tissue expansion and elevation, resulting in the removal of the treated wells. There are four sessions, one approximately monthly, according to the evolution.
Subcision is a process created for the treatment of atrophic scars, it may also involve the separation of the skin tissues from the scar tissue to allow the blood to stagnate, forming connective tissue and scarring upwards. Both processes are always performed by licensed professionals, and the patient can be under local or general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis.
This treatment recommended by Dr. Barciela to remove without surgery all depressions in the skin: wells or hollows caused by cellulite, by injections, by liposuctions, etc. It is an excellent technique for very depressed scars.
It is a minimally invasive technique, performed in the office, in the procedure room with local anesthesia. It consists of interrupting the fibrous tissue under a depressed scar. This pack of fibrous tissue rich in collagen can serve as an anchor that connects the underside of the scar to the underlying tissue.
In the subcision of the scars, Dr. Barciela uses precise surgical instruments to break this fibrosis. This elevates the base of the scar, decreases the depth of the pit and improves the appearance of the skin.
While it is not possible to completely erase a scar, the subcision procedure can make a depressed scar less visible or less conspicuous.
This technique is excellent for very depressed scars such as BOXCAR.
