After subcision when can I go back to work?

Recommended Posts

What is the downtime after having subcision for rolling acne scars? I am between jobs right now, However, I am interviewing. I would hope I could get a
subcision on a Friday and return to work on a Monday. I would do it now but I don't want to hear my significant other nag that I paid money it. However, this means a lot to me and I am going to get it done weather /he/she likes it or not.

/he/she...do tell, that sound scandalous.

 

But yea, I personally would not get subcision 2-3 days before an interview...

 

I think I saw somewhere that the downtime is like a week...although I think it might be strongly dependent on how aggressively it's done. Basically, how long does it take for a bruise to go away? That's how long you want to allow.

 

YMMV though as I'm just speculating.

1-2 weeks. If you're suctioning 2 weeks, unless you're a girl (makeup) or you're a badass and can disregard people's opinions of you while you look as if you've self-injected botox erratically. I'm only kidding a bit. 

 

Good luck!

After 4-5 days I looked ok. Yellow skin and bruising around the eyes though. If you suction then the downtime is longer. I looked ok after day 7 of suctioning and even when I continued suctioning for the rest of the following week I wouldn't bruise anymore.

Thanks for the reply. So I really should not go to work after I get a subcision? Or can I get a way with it.

By the way, did anyone get subcision on their temple area? I have a few deep ones that really bother me.

How happy are you with the results over all?

Thank you

HERE! Subcision + Suction performed twice improved my temples by a good 50%. All scars that were there are still there but now less pronounce! I'm going in for a 3rd subcision within a few weeks.

I was swollen for a good 3-4 days.  Not much bruising.  10 days out, still have one bruise and still some localized swelling.  The edema and swelling might actually temporarily plump up your scars.
