To many people scars can be embarrassing, painful and an unsightly condition. The healing process begins when blood starts clotting in the wound. The body then begins depositing a fibrous tissue called collagen to repair the broken skin. It’s much like our original skin, but laid out in a different pattern. Additionally, since this is new tissue, it takes on a different appearance than the original skin. The longer the healing process takes, the more collagen that is deposited and the more pronounced the scar becomes.
It’s always important to have good wound care to minimize the degree of the scar that forms. For example, never use alcohol or peroxide on a wound. These substances are caustic and will slow down the healing process. Always wash the wound daily with saline or sea salt solution because these are natural anti-bacterials. Always pat dry the wound, never rub it as it will damage the repair of the wound. Try to keep wounds moist for as long as possible. Keep them covered and out of the sunlight. Finally, you never want to pick at the scab of a wound because this will cause the body to produce more collagen and worsen the scar. Daily washing will assist in making the scabbing progress speedy.
There are many treatments for scar removal including chemical peels, filler injections, dermabrasion, laser treatment, steroids, semi-occlusive and pressure dressings and radiotherapy. Some of these treatments can be very expensive and they may not be effective at all. Another treatment option that is becoming very popular are natural therapies.
