What is cannula subcision and what can we use it for?
Cannula subcision is the method of using a cannula to release scar tissues that form between the upper dermis and lower levels of the skin. In doing so this reduces the appearance of the scar and if repeated over time can completely dimish their appearance. The process of cannula subcisson also causes dermal scraping. This promotes the production of collagen and elastin to proivde new structures to the surrounding tissues. This method works well for both small and large area but is especially popular for ance scarring. This method also involves usings small amount of soft filler to mask the indetation of the skin, this is sometimes carried out with a small needle at the end of the procedure. This will also cause an influx of collagen production to the area.
When paired with treatments such as PRP, this can have the greatest rejuvenating effects. PRP involves seperating your own blood with the use of a centrifudge. This produces PRP and PPP, substances in are rich in grwoth factors which are paromount in healing and growth.
