Best scar treatment
As soon as the Dermal skin layer is broken due to any injury or infection, e.g. Acne, inflammatory cells move into the area to plug the gap and heal the broken skin
If the opposing surfaces are close to each other, and there is no tension or infection, which can all delay skin closure, then healing occurs with little scarring.
However,some people,due to genetic reasons e.g. people with dark skin, unfortunately scar, even when optimum healing conditions are present.
Therefore, scarring and healing are two processes which occur at the same time and the final outcome depends on which one of these processes wins.
If healing is delayed or slow,then the chances of having a bad scar are much higher.
Factors affecting healing:
if the wound is dehydrated,then the keratinocytes send chemical signals that the wound has not closed, thereby attracting fibroblasts, that lay down large amounts of disorganized collagen, which closes the wound, but is aesthetically unsatisfactory.
The use of silicones as sheets or creams&gels help to increase the water content of skin cells to stop inviting more inflammatory cells to the region.
keeping the wound clean and infection free is critical to encourage normal healing and prevent scarring.
this helps reduce the signals from the injured site which bring unnecessary cells to promote scarring.
Topical Salicylic acid at 2% is frequently used by Plastic surgeons to reduce inflammation once the epidermis has closed.
Bromelain, which is another good anti-inflammatory agent when applied to skin is also useful.
Vitamin C is a well established healing promoter as it is required in laying normal healthy collagen.
It can be provided to skin as Ascorbyl tetra-isopalmitate, which is a fat soluble form but extremely expensive and highly effective.
Unfortunately most scar preparations have insufficient amount of this vitamin.
In addition,Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, which is a water soluble form can be used.
Vitamin A is essential for skin healing.
Unarguably, the best form of this vitamin is Retinaldehyde.
Unfortunately it is the most expensive form of Retinoid.
The only product that fits the bill is Scar Repairex® Ultra which has
2.Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate 5%
3.Magnesium AscorbylPhosphate 5%
There are other Scar Creams available, but are not as effective, as they do not have the full list of ingredients that are required for optimum healing.
