Is it safe to get subcision treatments after getting Radiesse dermal fillers?

Doctor's Answers (1)

It is perfectly safe to perform subcision treatment to your skin with prior CaHA fillers injection at anytime. 

Filler injection can be performed right after a subcision treatment for depressed acne. Subcision works well for rolling and boxcar acne scars as it breaks fibrous bands tethering the surface skin to the deeper layers. 

The fillers help to lift the skin up, preventing further scar formation around an indented area again. Biostimulant dermal fillers such as Radiesse, Ellanse and Sculptra are good choices of products. Not only do they help with depressed acne scars post-subcision, but also restore facial volume and collagen building

Do consider a multi-approach for your scar reduction journey. A combination of different treatment modalities can help with different scarring or depth of scars. These combinations can include:

  • Subcision with or without fillers,
  • Rejuran PN/PDRN,
  • Fractional RF with micro-needling,
  • Fractional Resurfacing Laser,
  • TCA CROSS for deep ice pick scars,
  • etc.

Please consult your doctor to assess your skin condition and prescribe the best approach for your scar reduction journey.
