Subcision is a process used to treat deep rolling scars left behind by acne or other skin diseases. It is also used to lessen the appearance of severe glabella lines, though its effectiveness in this application is debatable. Essentially the process involves separating the skin tissue in the affected area from the deeper scar tissue. This allows the blood to pool under the affected area, eventually causing the deep rolling scar to level off with the rest of the skin area. Once the skin has leveled, treatments such as laser resurfacing , microdermabrasion or chemical peels can be used to smooth out the scarred tissue. [ citation needed ]
Though many people use anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen for a headache, they don't come without side effects, and some people aren't supposed to take these drugs. Ibuprofen puts people at risk of bleeds in the gastrointestinal tract and kidney damage. Using the drug in high doses also seems to raise blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke — one reason the FDA recently warned that people should only use ibuprofen (and other "nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs," NSAIDS, like naproxen) for short periods of time and in small amounts. Yet ibuprofen (as well as naproxen) has been found in a number of supplements.
