Subscision Results?

What results have anyone had with subscision treatments and what doctors do them? I am aware of one dermatogist in New Jersey that does them.

I had cystic acne for 13 years and was cured by accutane. I had excisions done with two subsequent demabrasions. I was greatly improved but still have a few depressed areas that I would like to improve a some more.

Do subscisions improve scars from cystic acne and has anyone had success with this treatment? I have also been told by a cosmetic surgeon that a mini-face lift where they undermine the skin also gives some improvement.

Thanks much.

From what I have heard and from my own experience of subcision, subcision works best for rolling scars (the type of scars that dissapear when you stretch your skin) ... but it does very little for boxscars or ice picks.
