It has always been quite difficult to treat and remove scars effectively. However, things are changing, and medical science is evolving at an exponential rate. This has led to the development of advanced treatments and procedures. The FaSuLa scar-revision procedure, developed by Dr. Yoash Enzer himself, is one such solution.

It doesn’t matter what kind of scars you have or how they were caused. With FaSuLa scar revision, you can improve the quality of your skin drastically. Many procedures have been relied upon in the past, but none can offer the results of FaSuLa scar revision.

FaSuLa Scar Revision

FaSuLa is short for “Fat Transfer-Subcision-Laser,” which are three separate cosmetic procedures that are sequentially carried to deliver exceptional results. Dr. Enzer will carry out these three procedures, along with ancillary techniques, to restore your skin and give it that flawless appearance you once enjoyed.

Let us explore what happens at each phase of the FaSuLa procedure.

Fat Injection

This is the first phase of the FaSuLa scar-revision procedure. Here, the fat cells are extracted from a donor region of the patient’s body using liposuction, which involves using a syringe and a blunt tube to suction out the fat. Typical donor regions include the thighs and abdomen, as they tend to have extensive fat reserves.

Once the fat cells are harvested, they are purified and processed. After that, the processed fat is injected under the scar using a syringe and a cannula. When the fat goes in, the cells fill up the indentations right down to the deepest part of the subcutaneous layer.

Subcision with Dermal Grafting

Subcision is the next phase. Here, shallow scars are treated by disrupting the fibrous tissue that puts them inward. This is done by making a tiny opening using hypodermic needles to mobilize the tissues. Once the needle goes in, it is used to separate fibrotic strands that connect the underlying tissue to the external scar, thereby creating a tunnel.

When the fibrotic strands are broken, the body reacts to it by initiating a healing process. This causes collagen to be produced at an increased level. The additional collagen is what helps in making the scar almost invisible.

Dr. Enzer usually recommends putting a skin substitute (or your own skin) inside the newly created tunnel to maintain the scar correction indefinitely. This is called dermal grafting.

Laser Resurfacing

The last step is laser resurfacing, which primarily smoothes out the skin’s top layer. Here, a CO2-based laser is used to create a controlled superficial burn to the skin, which in turn encourages new skin to grow over the damaged surface.
