Subcision For Scars & Cellulite

Subcision is a minor surgical procedure for depressed (atrophic) scars & cellulite dimples.

The procedure involves inserting a small, sharp, surgical instrument, of a specific shape, in the skin through a tiny entry point (1-3mm) to break fibrous attachments present underneath most dermal scars and cellulite dimples.

How Does Subcision Work?

The procedure is performed under an aseptic technique.

The treatment area is first filly numbed using a topical anaesthetics cream and local anaesthesia injections. Once the area is numb, patients are unable to feel any pain or discomfort.

A small, sharp Subcision instrument is then inserted under the skin and gently moved back and forth and sideways to cut and break the deep fibres of the scar or the cellulite dimple. Each scar/ dimple is treated separately unless they are located side by side.

The Subcision procedure releases the scar/cellulite dimple and stimulates the production of fresh collagen and elastin in the treated area of the skin.

Nano Fat Grafting

A small amount of fat (harvested from the patient using a painless, micro-harvesting technique) can then be injected into the treated area once the subcision is completed. This is done to help fill the tissue and lift the scar/ cellulite dimple further up. The natural stem cells found in the fat cells then help regenerate fresh dermal tissue in the treated area. The results are permanent (long-term) once the desired correction is achieved. More than one treatment session is needed for deeper scars/ cellulite dimples

The Pain Factor

Our highly experienced clinical team do their utmost to minimise any treatment associated pain or discomfort. Having fine motor skills and gentle pair of hands are important assets for any clinician.

Depending upon the type of of procedure being performed, we use high-strength topical numbing cream, inhalation (laughing) gas, local anaesthesia as well as skin cooling device to make the procedure as tolerable as possible.


It is important to understand that treatments which are not medically supervised and are performed at most franchised laser salons, cannot deliver the same level of results and safe clinical outcomes that specialised medical & dermatology clinics like MedAesthetics are able to offer. It is, therefore, vital that you choose your treatment provider based upon their experience and reputation and not just on marketing hype or discount pricing.
