Hi Mr Matt, 
May i know if u have lumps or nodules under the bruised areas immediately after the subcision? Is it just something that will go away with bruising ? What is the protocol u did for the suction on your face ? Like how many minutes per area, how many times a day . Thanks for helping out!

Yes, I do recall having lumps/subcutaneous nodules under my skin after a couple of my subcision treatments and particularly after my fourth and final round of subcision.  The nodules eventually resolved themselves after several months,  They were noticeable while I was still bruised and swollen, but not afterwards.

I definitely recommend combining subcision with suctioning.  I was shocked to see how well it worked on my left cheek and so was my dermatologist.

mr. matt,
I plan on having TCA cross and subcision. Is there any recommendation as to which order to have these procedures? Should one be performed the other?

I don't think that it makes any difference because TCA CROSS treats surface level scarred pores and subcision treats sub dermal scarring.

Hope this helps and good luck with your procedures.

I waited about two weeks after my last subcision treatment before I attempted to dermaroll my face.  I was pretty swollen and bruised, so I gave myself a break.

I purchase my dermarollers from www.owndoc.com and I use the 2.0 cm roller. I am still rolling and did it last weekend, in fact.

My younger brother who sees me about every three to four months mentioned how smooth my face looked the last times I saw him.

The subcision treatments were, by far , the procedures that reduced the significance of my scarring.  Dermarolling and 25% at home TCA peels also helped to stimulate the production of collagen in my skin.  I buy mine from www.skinobsession.  Definitely do our homework first as this is a powerful peel and you must wear eye protection.  I have done four or five if them and your skin really peels!

Hope this helps.

Mr. Matt

So sorry for the delay in responding to your post;I didn't realize that there had been an update to my thread.




Zinc is vitally important for the overall health of your skin and promotes collagen development.  Here are a couple of links:






"Zinc – vital for skin, hair and nails
Zinc accelerates the renewal of the skin cells. Zinc creams are used for babies to soothe diaper rash and to heal cuts and wounds. Zinc has also proven effective in treating acne, a problem that affects especially adolescents, and zinc has been reported to have a positive effect on psoriasis and neurodermitis.

Zinc is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent and can help sooth the skin tissue, particularly in cases of poison ivy, sunburn, blisters and certain gum diseases."


Vitamin D




" Having sufficient vitamin D in the skin helps minimize acne, boost elasticity, stimulate collagen production, enhance radiance, and lessen lines and the appearance of dark spots, he says. It’s this laundry list, plus anecdotal evidence from seeing patients day in and day out at his NYC office, that led him to create skincare with D right in the bottle. “Many of my patients have vitamin D deficiencies as a result of avoiding the sun and wearing a daily sunscreen in fear of premature aging and cancer,” he says. “Together, we noticed that their skin had a sallow and dull appearance, which I believed to be an adverse effect from low levels of vitamin D.”

3) do what I did:  take copies of how the subcision procedure is performed and give them to your dermatologist

hey mr.matt, where i can find such copies on the internet? and which copies did you use to convince your dermatologist?

This is an example of the type of article/study that I provided my doctor with when I asked him to consider doing subcision on my face:




I am sure that there are other articles out there, but this is the type of information that I shared with me and I am so glad that he agreed to perform subcision on my face.
