Hi, I'm thinking of undergoing subcision and filler for my acne scars. Can I go for my regular extraction facials after undergoing subcision and fillers?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Pinkperiwrinkle,

May I know why are you undergoing regular extraction facials? If you are having issue with comedone and acne, it might not the right time to do subcision and filler for your scar. 

Extraction may not be a good solution for comedone control as well. Frequent extraction increases the risk of more scarring and may also cause inflammation or infection if not done properly. It will be important for you to have the proper treatment to control your comedone. It may be topical or oral medication, chemical peel or laser therapy. Extraction should be restricted to only those that are not responding to standard treatment.

That said, once the skin has fully recovered from the subcision and fillers, there is no reason why extraction cannot be done except for the above reasons mentioned. Likewise, you should not do other facial until the skin has recovered.

Have a great week ahead and stay happy!

Regards,

Dr Elias Tam
