I've been researching dermatological procedures and have stumble upon some information on tethered scars. These are scars which are attached to the underlying connective tissue by fibrous bands. These fibrous bands are located at the bottom of the scar and pull the scar down. Subsicion is a procedure which cuts these connective fibrous bands, which allows the scars to surface up and become more shallow.
I am curious about how these fibrous bands look like. Maybe they are these white stretchy plugs that most people have been talking about on this forum? Since they anchor the scar down, and act as a band of connective tissue...it could possibly be what we are seeing when we pick at a scab and see those white dots. Fibrous bands in development as part of the healing process?
