There are various types of scars and how to get rid of them. Which scar removal technique is the right one for you to remove scars within 6-8 months?
There are some reasons that people get scars. Sometimes they’re the result of medical conditions like chicken pox or acne. Other times they come from stretch marks during pregnancy. Others are from cuts, burns, or even dog bites from accidents. Obviously, the best way to not have scars is to prevent them from happening in the first place. While this is not always possible, many times it is, and you should take the time to do what you can.
An Ounce of Prevention
A large number of scars are preventable because they are the result of stretch marks during pregnancy. While these are not 100% preventable, with a little care and the right preventative measures, many of these scars can either be completely or partially prevented.
One of the most important things that you can do if you’re pregnant is to keep all of the predominant scarring locations on your body which would be stomach, back, thighs, hips and breasts all thoroughly lubricated the entire time you’re pregnant. There are plenty of natural oils such as cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, and others that can be applied several times throughout the day in all these areas to keep the skin moist.
The object of keeping the skin moist is to keep it from breaking or separating and turning into a lesion. When it is moist, it’s more likely to stretch and grow as you gain weight during your pregnancy.
In addition to that, scars such as acne should be aggressively treated with antibiotics orally, plus topical antibacterial ointments as well. By stopping the aggressive bacterial action on the skin, you’ll lessen scarring in the long run. Once the infection is under control, you can apply the scar removal techniques outlined next.
Removing Scars Is a Long-Term Process
While you may find creams that advertise quick scar removal, there are other factors you must consider. Scar removal depends on the constant removal of upper layers of skin and the re-growth of new skin from underneath. The removal of upper layers of skin can be done chemically, physically or both depending on your preference.
If the scars are very deep and rise high above the skin level, it’s most likely you’ll need to see a dermatologist to have the top of the scars removed surgically or by lasers. After that, new skin can regrow underneath in the proper way without scarring. With lesser scars such as acne or chickenpox, you can normally use a chemical skin peeling technique to gently remove the upper layers of the skin.
After each chemical peel, you would then want to put a healing lotion containing collagen, vitamin A, and high-quality healing oil. This lotion would encourage rapid, healthy skin growth to replace the scar tissue that you are removing.
Removing scars is a fairly long process that takes consistent action to be successful. There are plenty of scar creams that provide scar removal techniques, and they can work well. By planning your actions and sticking to your plan over the long-term your scars will slowly disappear until they are no longer visible after 6 to 8 months of consistent treatment.
