Scar Removal Treatment

Identifying the type of scar:  One should know the type of scar before scar removal treatment. The most common place we see scars are on our skin, a patch that looks slightly different from the normal skin around it. I wanted to share with you different types of scars and some of the solutions to resolve them.

  1. So, the first one is the flat scars. Flat scars are scars that heal very well. They function like normal skin in the colour actually goes back to the normal skin tone in time.
  2. The next is hypertrophic scars. Now, these are scars that occur due to an imbalance in collagen production. So, on the injured area creating a scar that is often thicker but does not extend beyond the boundary of the original injury.

  3. The third which we often see a lot is the keloid scars. Now, these are scars that occur due to an overgrowth of healing tissues. The scars grow beyond the boundary of the original injury. Sometimes even after the injury has healed the both type of scars which you often see from acne or even chickenpox are what we call pitted or sunken scars. This can also occur due to an injury leading to the kind of underlying loss of fat creating an uneven and kind of bumpy surface.
  4. The last type of scar is what we call scar contractures and this happens when the healed skin shrinks and contracts restricting movement and causing tightness. This usually happens after a burn.

Now to heal well, you want to really increase your uptake of vitamins A, C, and E which basically helps the repair process. You also need to increase your mineral intake of selenium, sulphur, and zinc which also helps to do that too. You can do this by increasing your organic green vegetables so eating kind of salmon or even oysters if you’re not allergic to them. Avoid the sunlight and wear sunscreen every single day. Stop smoking or avoid any secondary smoking because smoking actually breaks down the collagen so it doesn’t help with the repair process as well.

Now in terms of the skin, when the skin is just about healed you to start massaging with the vitamin E oil. The best I found actually buying kind of capsules of vitamin E and actually breaking them because it’s really concentrated vitamin E in there so you can break the capsule and just really massage the area the skin. You can do this morning and night time and this will help the repair process too. You can also add some vitamin C and even retinol cream to help brighten the skin and also to boost the renewal system of the skin as well.

Now in terms of professional help, depending on the type of scar, how deep in, how extensive it is, you can go for the treatment.
