Topical Scar Treatment
Topical scar treatment is ideal for anyone who has some superficial scars she wants to make less noticeable. Though less effective than alternatives such as laser treatment, topical scar treatment is cheaper and has fewer side effects. Topical scar treatment works better with newly formed scars and generally works to either help smooth the appearance of the scar or help it resemble normal skin.
Benefits of Massage
Massaging a scarred area stimulates the production of collagen, which can help minimize the scar’s appearance.
The most common type of topical scar treatment comes in the form of creams.
SPF in Creams
One of the main ingredients in creams is sunscreen. Scars are typically very sensitive to sun.
The antioxidants in scar creams typically protect damaged skin cells and promote the growth of healthy skin cells.
Most topical scar treatments are also enriched in B and D vitamins, which are important for proper skin health. Adding these vitamins will aid in scar remodeling, making the scar less noticeable.
