An Effective 2 Phase Scar Management System
Scars are one of patients’ primary concerns following any surgical procedure. Scarring is a natural process after the skin is damaged, but most patients prefer coming out of surgery scar-free. Some scars heal with little evidence of any prior surgery. However, for many, that is not the case. Often patients experience scarring that may become raised or significantly discolored. It depends on several factors such as how well the wound was taken care of and other body intrinsic characteristics. It is extremely important to properly take care of wounds so that you have to worry less about diminishing the appearance of a scar later on.
How to Treat Scars
Odds are you or someone you know has a scar that would preferably disappear. Maybe that scar is from a traumatic injury or life-saving surgery. Perhaps it signifies a change in your life like a new look or an addition to your family. Regardless of where your scar comes from, it’s okay to seek out a solution. Scar management is often a long and difficult process that can be frustrating and confusing. We understand, we have been at it for over 30 years. That’s why we have developed a Scar Management System to make your scar healing process as easy as possible.
How Our Scar Management System Works
The key to effective scar management is beginning as soon as possible. We recommend starting your efforts as soon as your wound has completely healed.
Phase 1: Producing a Flat, Smooth Scar
The first phase of our scar management system is designed to even the scar with the surrounding skin. Silicone is the gold standard here. During this phase we recommend alternating between Scar Fx Silicone Sheeting and RejuvaSil Silicone Scar Gel. These two silicone products help form an occlusive layer over your scar to reduce water loss and limit collagen production. The result - a flat, smooth scar.
For the best results, Scar Fx should be used at night or while you sleep. Generally, people are a little less active at night which will help secure the sheet in place. We also find that patients prefer wearing the sheet since it is a little less discreet. Using RejuvaSil throughout the day allows you to maintain the ideal healing environment without anyone noticing. It’s completely clear, providing discreet scar management. RejuvaSil can also help relieve itchiness and discomfort associated with scarring.
Phase 2: Dealing with Discoloration
Once your scar is flat and smooth, Phase Two focuses on any remaining discoloration. Scar Esthetique Scar Cream with Silicone combines 23 ingredients that help reduce the appearance of your scar. Our unique formula targets discoloration at the cellular level to help even skin tone. To use Scar Esthetique, massage the cream in to your scar 3-4 times per day. This process can be continued for as long as you see improvements or until you are satisfied with your result. Some of patients see continued improvements through long-term use of Scar Esthetique.
Scar treatment is a priority for most patients. They typically ask their physicians for effective solutions. If you want to help your plastic surgeons, dermatologists and other skin care experts to provide an effective solution for their patients. Use this article as a reminder on what they need.
