English term or phrase: punch excision
Bonjour,

Improvement can be temporary, with the return of overcorrection after the effects of corticosteroids have dissipated. This treatement can be repeated. Micro-electrodesiccation, **punch excision**, dermabrasion, or tangential shave excision surgery can provide permanent resolution.

Merci d’avance

excision à l'emporte-pièce
Explanation:
http://dermatology.about.com/cs/acnescars/a/acnescars_3.htm

Punch Excision
This method of surgically correcting acne scars is used on deep scars such as icepick and deep boxcar scars.
This procedure uses a punch biopsy tool which is basically a round, sharp "cookie-cutter" tool that comes in diameters ranging from 1.5 mm to 3.5 mm. The size of the tool is matched to the size of the scar to include the walls of the scar. Under local anesthesia the scar is excised with the punch tool and the skin edges are sutured together. The newly produced scar eventually fades and may not be noticeable. If it is noticeable, it is more amenable now to resurfacing techniques.

Biopsie à l'emporte-pièce
Épreuve diagnostique consistant à prélever un échantillon de tissu au moyen d’un instrument tranchant appelé emporte-pièce, pour ensuite l’examiner au microscope. La biopsie à l'emporte-pièce permet d’obtenir des échantillons de peau afin de confirmer ou d’écarter un diagnostic de cancer.
