Having scars is perhaps one of the most misunderstood skin conditions. It is a consequence of skin injury and is something that follows all wound injury like cuts and abrasions. While the smaller lesions may not result in scarring, all wounds (and I mean all) turn to scars.
What Are Scar Tissues
Scar tissues are composed of fibrous tissues that replace the normal skin tissues that get damaged. It is made of the weaker material than those it replaces and will contain no hair follicle, sweat and oil glands. The skin loses those adaptive facilities when it becomes scarred. This is why scars are said to be more prone to destructive elements like the ultraviolet rays of the sun. We should take good care of scars and keep them protected against excessive sun exposure.
Scar formation happens through the occurrence of abnormal inflammatory processes and an excessive regeneration of fibroblast and collagen which are the building blocks of the skin’s connective tissues. During the wound healing process, the skin repairs by laying down new collagen fibers and visible scars are the results of the overexpression of the collagen formation.
How Long Does Scar Last?
The severity of the wound will determine more or less the appearance of the resulting scar. In general, the bigger the size of the injury, the worse the scar is going to look. The majority of scars will take the shape of the original wound, and most will vanish after some time. But the time it requires to do this will vary from person to person. Some may take only a few days, and some take longer. It all depends on how bad the wound was in the first place.
Unfortunately, for a certain percentage of the scar, over production of collagen results in abnormal-looking scars that are characterized by reddish bumps on the skin that cover the area of the original skin injury and never goes beyond. These are known as hypertrophic scars.
Face Scar Cream Treatment
Another type of scarring called keloid scars is probably the worst kind because they can grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound and usually treated with face scar cream. They could grow indefinitely to form tumorous growths. Although they are benign tumors and are harmless, some people may find it imperative to do something about them.
In contrast to the hypertrophic scar is what we call the recessed scar which is characterized by the pitted or sunken appearance that people also hate. Most cases of this type of scarring are associated with chicken pox and acne.
Stretched marks or striae are scars that result from the skin being stretched very rapidly which usually occur during pregnancy, significant weight gain, a burst of growth (as in the adolescent stage), and muscle/body building. They often appear as reddish or purplish lines on the skin when they are fresh but lighten as time goes by.
Botanicals included in scar removal cream are selected because they act together to provide potent anti irritant, anti microbial and anti inflammatory properties. The scar removal cream also helps liquefy sebum and regulate its production without leading to dryness or other side effects that can further damage the skin. Since it is natural, it can be used for all types of skin and skin conditions.
