post surgical scars

Your skin is just like a fine silk cloth covering the internal valuable assets. Just one small stain or tear on this piece of cloth and its excellence and delicacy is gone. Whenever the skin sustains damage, due to burn, injury or any other trauma – such as a surgical incision – there is a possibility of scarring. Not every scar is bad, especially if it is small or in a location that can be easily concealed. But a large, visible scar can be quite distressing and you may also find yourself searching for ways to hide or cover it or at least make the scar less visible by blending it with makeup.

While most scars fade away over time, large post surgical scars raised above the surface of skin never go away completely. Worry not though! There are some methods that can help improve the appearance of scars and reduce their size as well. Large, elevated surgery scars mostly require excision but there are numerous non-invasive techniques as well that you can opt for to get rid of unsightly surgical scars.

Get Deep Massages:

The easiest, simplest and safest way to get rid of surgical scars is to undergo a deep massage program. Repeated massages may be required to improve the appearance of both internal and external scarring. Massaging scar tissues not only helps break hard scar tissues but also increases blood circulation in the affected areas, thereby stimulating the healing process. This technique is more effective on freshly formed scars.

Topical Creams:

There are certain topical creams as well that really help improve the appearance of scars caused by surgery or any other trauma. Scar removing creams contain high levels of vitamin E which helps stimulate the scar healing process. However, these topical creams, both over the counter and prescribed – may not work well for severe scarring.

Laser Scar Removal

If you are seeking an effective, non-invasive treatment for stubborn post-surgical scars, try lasers and you won’t be disappointed. Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is the most effective scar treatment being practiced all over the world nowadays.
