Subcision is a minor surgical procedure to treat depressed acne scars. The hypodermic needles or cannulas are used to physically separate the dermis from the subcutaneous tissue. This releases and even out the scar tissue. At the same time collagen remodeling is initiated. Eventually the scar is filled out resulting in a smaller and shallower scar.
