What to Expect During Your Subcision Procedure?
The subcision procedure is performed at our clinic, on Harley Street in London. It is usually done as an outpatient procedure which means you can go home on the same day.
During the initial consultation, Dr Injibar will go over the steps involved before, during and after the procedure.
- Before Dr Injibar begins the procedure, a thorough clean of the area around the scar is performed.
- She will then mark around the scars.
- A local anaesthetic (to freeze and numb your skin) will be given so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
- Dr Injibar will insert a Hypodermic Nokor needle horizontally into the skin right underneath your scar.
- She will then gently move the needle from side to side to dissect under the scar and cut the scar fibres pulling the skin down. This creates a small wound under the skin. When the wound heals ( in 6 to 10 weeks) it will create new collagen which will lift up the scar.
- Finally, the wounds are cleaned, antibiotic cream applied, and the wounds are covered with plaster. ( You can see the complete procedure of Dr Injibar performing a subcision procedure in this video)
When fibrotic strands are broken during the subcision procedure, the natural healing processes of the body are kick-started, resulting in an increase of collagen production in the area.
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein necessary for repair in the skin. Furthermore, it also serves to keep it taut, healthy and plump. This promotes safe healing and improves overall skin tone and texture.
