Subcutaneous

What is Subcutaneous?

Subcutaneous definition and meaning on Health terms:
This is the administration of a medicine into the layer of skin directly below the dermis and epidermis (the top layers of skin). Subcutaneous tissue has few blood vessels and so medicines administered here are for slow, sustained rates of absorption. An example is a local anaesthetic injected before suturing.
