How are scars formed?

Everybody scars differently depending on the nature of the wound and how it occurred. Whether you’ve just had breast surgery or had a Caesarean section, that last thing on your mind is a damned scar. Over time, as your wound heals, you will begin to notice gradual changes around this region.

Scars are a natural part of your wound’s healing process. As your skin starts to recover, new tissue will begin to form. Initially, your scar will be quite red, raised, and inflamed. Although most scars will always be somewhat visible,  most will fade and become less noticeable. You may need to be patient though, as this process can take up to 2 years!

Unfortunately, some individuals will develop keloid or hypertrophic scars. Depending on your genetics and the nature of the wound, excess collagen can starts to build along the scar. Instead of a normal soft scar, these keloid and hypertrophic types can be more obvious and unpleasant. Some nasty changes you may notice includes:

  • Discolouration (i.e. red, purple)
  • Itchiness
  • Painful
  • Restrictive and tight (particularly near the joint)

Best Scar Treatment

There are many precautions that you can take to manage scarring. One of which is to regularly moisturize before surgery to keep the skin well-hydrated. Another technique is to massage your scar post-surgically with products, such as Bio Oil or Vitamin E Creams. Although, you might be disappointed to read that this might not significantly change your scar’s appearance

“Silicone is considered to be the first-line non-invasive, prophylactic and therapeutic measure for scar management.”

Julie Van Onselen (Dermatology Nurse Advisor)

Many dermatology experts and researchers agree that silicone is a naturally rejuvenating compound that is an exceptionally effective scar treatment. Over the years, scientists have discovered that silicone possesses 4 amazing anti-scarring properties, which include:

  1. Skin hydration
  2. Boosting essential growth factors which breaks down excess collagen
  3. Stimulating natural growth factors to replenish damaged skin
  4. Reducing redness and itching

Now if this doesn’t impress you… Dermatologist Dr. Neerja Puri also reports that silicone softened skin by up to 86%, reduced discoloration by up to 84%, and scar height by up to 68%!

With the science supporting silicone as the first-line scar treatment, you too can be reassured that you’ll be able to regain your skin back!
