A subcision does two things. It releases the tension of the tissues under the scars and it allows the healing process to generate new skin cells that hopefully will level out the scars. So it isn't a surprise that this does not work well with boxcar scars which has too much surface area to be refilled.
Laviv is composed of live cells that will integrate into the tissues under the skin and generate the substances (collagen, hyaluronic acids and other skin matrix materials) to rebuild the skin.
So if Waitingforacure's scars are of the boxcar variety, it makes sense to just start with laViv. But even for the other scar types, having new cells growing before doing the subcision is also a good idea. Dr. Boss was the inventor of laViv. So Waiting is in good hands there.
