How to Prepare Before the Treatment?
It is important to prepare and make some changes in your lifestyle before going for the subcision treatment. The skin care expert during the initial consultation will examine your skin and will give you pre-treatment instructions accordingly. Some of the basic instructions are as follows:
- Avoid smoking and drinking before a week of the treatment
- Avoid using products that contain retinoids
- Do not tweeze or wax the treatment area before subcision treatment
- You should avoid anti-inflammatory medicines
- Stop the use of blood thinners which increases the chances of bleeding
- Do not use makeup or cosmetic products before coming for the treatment
What to Expect During the Procedure?
The dermatologist starts the procedure by numbing the area with the help of numbing cream or by injecting local anaesthesia. He then cleanses the treatment site and disinfects the area. He then uses a needle and the size of the needle depends on the type of acne scar. The skin care expert will then use the needle to remove the scar fibres which are responsible for the scars. The needle also creates a new wound in the skin due to which the healing process will boost up and new skin will form after a few weeks. After completing the procedure he applies pressure to minimise the swelling and bleeding. He may apply antibiotic cream to encourage the healing process.
Recovery and After Care:
Right after the treatment, you may experience swelling and tenderness on the treatment site. But do not worry these are temporary ailments and will fade away after some time. To minimise the swelling you can use cold compresses. The recovery period is very minimal but you should take proper care of the skin to avoid any side effects. Some of the aftercare instructions:
- Avoid strenuous activity and hard exercise which can cause sweating
- Do not take blood thinners for the first few days
- Avoid doing makeup for the first 24 hours
- Do not touch the treatment area to prevent infection
- Do not remove the dressing yourself if you have any
- Avoid going to areas with high temperature
