SCARS: what they are and how to treat them

When we get injured, burnt or undergo surgery, our body initiates the healing process in order to repair the wound.

  • hypertrophic scar: an excessive amount of tissue is regenerated and the skin therefore remains raised
  • atrophic scar: only small amounts of tissue is regenerated and this can also cause the wound to reopen

Treating scars

To avoid unsightly scars, it is important that a specific product be applied to the wound or lesion that helps the natural healing process from the very first application. This is the only way to avoid imperfections from scars.

In fact, gels containing filmogenic and protective active ingredients can be obtained in pharmacies that encourage the physiological scarring mechanisms and counteract the formation of hypertrophic keloids.

Scars and the sun

When we sunbathe, either on the beach or at the park, we must protect those areas of our skin that have scars or where wounds are healing. Exposure to sunlight can lead to hyperpigmentation of the skin. Protecting these areas of the skin with specific products prevents them from becoming red and complicating the healing process.

Products that reduce the formation of hypertrophic keloids and help flatten scars and improve their appearance can be obtained at the pharmacy. With the use of UV filters, these products protect the scars and prevent them from reddening and becoming dark.
