Does subcision work on scars created from excision?

Recommended Posts

I had some chicken pox scars excised almost 10 years ago and although the scar is gone the area is sunken/indented from the loss of tissue below. Would subcision work for this type of scar? If not does anyone have any idea what would work?

thanks!

You probably will need a filler. Subscison will help if the skin is bound down and will elevate the scar a bit but usually the deeper scars will need a filler.

No because that sunk spot is from tissue loss below. Subcision works to unbind the scar that causes it to sink. In my case they were done to cause a scar underneath ice picks and force them up to surface level. Fillers are needed in your situation.
