• Please follow any pre-treatment instructions your provider may have outlined in preparation for your subcision.
  • If you have a history of cold sores or a diagnosis of HSV (herpes simplex virus), you will need a prescription for prophylaxis prior to the procedure. Call our office and we’d be happy to help you with a prescription.

If you have an active cold sore for this appointment, your visit will need to be rescheduled!


Just as important as the treatment, is the care for your skin post-treatment. Follow your providers instructions and keep all follow-up appointments.

  • Treat the area that was subcised with care as it may be tender.
  • Do not wear makeup or any skincare products for 24 hours post treatment. After 24 hours, you may resume your normal skincare regimen and products.
  • Be sure to use a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher daily on your entire face.


If your subcision is combined with another procedure such as ProFracional laser, follow those instructions as well!


  • Use soft cloths and soft towels to avoid any scrubbing.
  • When showering, you may get the area wet.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating for 24 hours.


  • DO NOT pick, rub or scratch at your skin while healing.
  • DO NOT wear makeup for 24 hours.
