Scar Management

Scar Management

Facial scars come in numerous forms and may be caused by injuries, acne, burns, or surgery. The longer it takes a wound to heal and the more damaged the skin, the greater the chance of a noticeable scar. A normal scar will become darker initially and after a period of time this will start to fade.

 How do scars form?

  • Accidental injuries
  • Surgery
  • Burns and scalds
  • Intentional harm

Preparing For Your Scars Surgery

Few day before your surgery eat a healthy diet to get your body in optimum shape for surgery. Stop taking any supplements or naturopathic or homeopathic medications two weeks before surgery. On the night before and the morning of your surgery, take a shower and wash thoroughly with regular soap. And please follow all the instruction carefully which is given by your doctor.

Post Operative Activities

  • Wash and apply moisturizer daily.
  • Apply antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for four to six weeks after the procedure.
  • For facial procedures, you may need to avoid makeup for a few days.
  • Be gentle and avoid scrubbing your wound.

Frequently Asked questions

A scar is a mark left on the skin after a wound or injury has healed. Scars are a natural part of the healing process. Most will fade and become paler over time, although they never completely disappear.
Scars can't be removed completely, but they can often be made less visible. Your GP may refer you to a dermatologist (skin specialist) or a plastic surgeon for treatment. Some treatments, such as laser therapy, aren't widely available on the NHS, so you'll need to pay for them privately.
Coconut oil is also said to help boost collagen production. Not only could increasing collagen in the skin help with fine lines, it could also help minimize scarring by binding new skin tissue together.
Tissue damage may be internal, so scar tissue can form post surgery or as a result of disease. In the early stages, scar tissue isn't always painful. This is because nerves in the area may have been destroyed along with healthy body tissues. But over time, scar tissue may become painful as nerve endings regenerate.
To help the injured skin heal, use petroleum jelly to keep the wound moist. Petroleum jelly prevents the wound from drying out and forming a scab; wounds with scabs take longer to heal. This will also help prevent a scar from getting too large, deep or itchy.
