And also from the types of scarring resulting from acne or burns or after surgery or because of hormonal changes.
Prevention of Scar Formation
Prevention methods can be by doing a massage to the area to prevent the accumulation of connective tissue and collagen and protect it from ultraviolet radiation and using silicon gel.
Scar prevention is better than treating it. Especially you must be treated as soon as possible so that it is not difficult to treat.
- The first line of treatment is silicon, either alone or with any cortisone. Which reduces the appearance of scar tissue and reduces redness. Present in the form of gel or silicone sheets also it can be in the form of a stick. Silicon works by moisturizing the area and increasing blood flow in the treated scars.
- Steroid Injection: It can help relieve scar tissue and is suitable for large or prominent scars because it makes scars look smaller and reduce pain and redness.
- Laser Therapy: The laser exfoliates the outer layer of the scar and stimulates the skin to regenerate cells, thereby relieving scar tissue and relieving redness.
