Acne scars are a nightmare to most people, be it male or female. Many Malaysians feel very conscious about their appearance if they suffer from acne scars, especially if the scars are prominent and highly visible.
Acne scars appear when someone has pimples, which causes an inflammatory reaction from our body. Our body fights the infection or inflammation from acne, which eventually results in the formation of scars.
The scars can be especially prominent if one tends to squeeze or pick on the pimples, which potentially can worsen the condition.
No matter how much facial or beauty salon treatments you do, the deep acne scars won’t seem to go away.
Deeper scars need more aggressive treatments. One such treatment at Premier Clinic is called subcision, which is what our clinic manager Miss Dya underwent here. Our Premier Clinic’s aesthetic doctor at Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, Dr Aarthi Maria performed this simple procedure on her.
First, numbing cream containing lidocaine is applied for half an hour to make the procedure more comfortable. Next, the face is properly cleansed. A sterile needle is used to break the scar tissue which is pulling the skin underneath and causing the appearance of deep ice-pick scars.
By breaking the scar tissue, the underlying tissue is lifted and is stimulated to produce collagen. This collagen helps to make the skin appear more even and smoother.
A series of treatment would give better results. Subcision can be combined with other treatments such as laser or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
