Can I use your single needle to perform subcision?
« on: April 15, 2013, 05:55:30 AM »
Hi Sarah,

Just wondering whether it's safe to move the single needle sideways underneath the skin like what the doctor do when they perform subcision with nokor needles? I'm just a little worried that the needle's gonna break since it does not have that "harpoon tip" to cut fibrous strands underneath the skin.

No, our single needles are not suitable for classical subcision but needling will also loosen the fibrotic tethering (if there is one in place).

You can needle the scar from different angles but you cannot use our needle horizontally under the scar and move it left and right to cut the fibers (which is subcision). Our needle is too short for this technique and it has no "knive".  I do not recommend doing real subcision at home. It is quite risky, as it can leave scars.
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
