Types of Scars Requiring Treatment
Keloid scars are large and reddish in appearance. They are usually the result of an overproduction of collagen. Keloids tend to be raised and often grow outside of the wound area. They can be painful depending on their location and size. They can also affect a patient’s movement.
Burn (Contracture) Scars
Healing process following burns is the most difficult aspect of the injury. You may experience discomfort and tightness from the scars forming after the burn. This can hamper your ability to move. The scars may also impede underlying nerve structures and muscles depending on the burn degree.
Conventional American diet comprising of highly processed foods, dairy, and meats along with hormonal imbalances can result in acne in individuals of 30 years of age and beyond. The skin loses its ability to efficiently heal as it loses elasticity. This makes hyperpigmentation and scars more common. Acne scars may not hurt, but they may result in embarrassment.
Surgery, whether major or minor can result in scars at the incision site. These may be from the sutures or staples used at the incision. Surgical scars tend to be concave in appearance, which may result in self-consciousness and embarrassment.
Compounding Scar and Wound Treatment vs. Over the Counter Options
Scar healing process varies from one person to the next. It also depends on the nature of the injury. For instance, surgical scars tend to heal faster because the skin is bonded to help healing. Scars from expansive or deeper injuries on the other hand may take longer to heal.
Many people try healing scars by using over the counter remedies. This might seem promising, but it doesn’t do much towards diminishing scar appearance once the healing process is over. Over the counter medications are produced for the masses. They may not be formulated for addressing specific needs or even the scar type you have.
It’s pathetic during the healing process to follow physicians’ orders and keep your wound clean. Compounding medications can go a long way in reducing the appearance of healed scars once the healing process is complete.
