Scars be Gone

February 21st, 2011

How do Scars form? An injury to the skin (physical, burns or scalds, chemical, etc) will stimulate tissue repair activity, usually involving connective tissue.

In this process, collagenous fibre form to strengthen the traumatized area. The healed area is known as a scar, which usually presents itself as a mark.

Hairs, sebaceous glands and sweat glands are not reformed in scar tissue.

However, in some cases, excessive scar tissues form at the site of injury to cause keloids and hypertrophip scarring. Keloids are red and raised scar tissue and usually larger than original size of the wound.

Quite frequently a keloid tendency is inherited especially in people with coloured skin.

Although hypertrophic scarring is also red and raised, it is confined to the actual wound area.

Alternately, a scar can take the form of a sunken recess in the skin, which has a pitted appearance.

These are caused when underlying structures supporting the skin, such as fat or muscle, are lost.

This type of scarring is commonly associated with acne, but can be caused by chickenpox, surgery or an accident.

Scars can also take the form of stretched skin.

These are called striae and are caused when the skin is stretched rapidly (for instant during pregnancy, significant weigh gain or adolescent growth spurts, or when the skin is put under tension during the healing process, usually near joints). This type of scar usually improves in appearance after a few years.

No scar can even be completely removed and treatments will always leave a trace, but a number of approaches have been tried with corticosteroid injection into the scar areas or removal via surgery.

However, success rate varies and can be unpredictable as keloid scars tend to reform thereafter.

On the other hand, other options such as laser theraphy and cryosurgery can, unfortunately, be very painful.

Mederma SkincareMederma Skincare for scars is very effective in treating any form of scars. They include both old and recent scars caused by physical accidents, a burn or scald, an acid burn, a vaccination, acne or an operation.

It is simple and easy to use; however, it requires s high degree of perseverance and active participation by the patient. It is extremely well tolerated even in long term use.

To have positive effects on scar formation, Moderma skin care for scar treatment should begin as early as possible. Treatment can commence just s few days after the wound has closed, or eight 10 days after an operation.

The active ingredients in Mederma skincare for scars are cepae extract and allantoin.

Cepae extract is obtained from onions. It generates an anti-ploliferative, anti-inflammatory effect and promotes regeneration.

It reduces swelling while preventing excessive growth of the connective tissue.

Allantoin encourages wound healing and has a soothing effect. In older scars, its most important effect is to replenish and regulate the extreme lack of water in the scar tissue and to promote blood flow.

The effects of the ingredients enhance and compliment each other while the water-soluble gel base allows the active ingredients to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin.

Mederma skincare for scars does not leave behind a residue. Rather its protective film shields the sensitive scar tissue. In many cases, it makes scar tissues elastic again and restores most of their functionality.

The earlier you begin to teat the scar tissue with Mederma skincare for scars, the better the outcome will be.
