Scars: Scar relaxation is a specific application used to create supple skin texture. This technique applies repetitive circular movements to soften fibrous bands of collagen (scar tissue) and give the patient more flexibility in their movements. This procedure works well on all scar tissue, with exceptional results for the hands. Dry needling, like acupuncture, and manual soft-tissue manipulation are tools that can release scar contractures and interior adhesions making scars less obvious by using a tattoo gun to needle abrade the scars. This technique works because the needles break old collagen strands that are tethering the bed of the scar, and the damage also creates more collagen immediately under the epidermis.
