Mom’s Looking For An Effective Scar Cream For Kids? Suggest A Scar Gel Instead!
Here at Rejuvaskin, we know that adults aren’t the only people who can get scars. Children who grow quickly are at an increased risk of developing stretch marks, and any child that gets a serious wound or burn can also develop intense scarring. Parents always want the best for their kids, and some might already be asking you about products like scar cream for kids. In this blog, we take a look at how to get rid of pediatric scars and discuss how you can guide moms to the best scar treatment for their kids.
How To Get Rid of Scars
First and foremost, it’s important that parents know that scarring is a completely natural response to wound formation and healing. They can be assured that over time, their child’s scar will fade naturally, but scar creams and gels can assist the skin’s healing process, minimizing its appearance.
What To Look For In A Scar Cream For Kids:
Children have far more sensitive skin than most adults have, making it difficult to find the right topical treatment that will not irritate the skin even further. The wound healing and scarring process can be very uncomfortable and itchy especially for children, so parents should keep them from scratching at the area– scratching can disrupt the healing process and cause the final scar to be more visible. It’s best that parents choose a scar cream that uses ingredients that not only cater to sensitive skin but also reduce the itching sensations that their child might experience.
Older children, specifically, will appreciate a scar cream that doesn’t stand out and draw attention to their wounds and scarring. A great scar cream that goes on discreetly is difficult to find, so parents may elect for a gel-like product instead, like our Rejuvasil Silicone Scar Gel.
Kids are always getting into stuff and they love to run around and splash in things. If a mom is concerned about the cost of reapplication every time her child gets a little bit wet, suggest a water-resistant scar cream or gel.
Ease of Application
If a mom wants her child to be able to apply the scar product on their own, they might want to choose a product without convoluted directions or odd steps. For example, some creams may have steroids in them (ours doesn’t!) that limits applications to two to four times a day. Luckily, Rejuvasil is extremely simple to apply to the skin and it’s hardly noticeable once it’s set.
What Is the Best Scar Treatment for Kids?
We might be a bit biased, but we really believe that our Rejuvasil Silicone Scar Gel is a great product for anyone with scarring– even kids! Simple, recognizable ingredients and botanicals have just enough power to help speed up your patient’s– or her child’s– skin’s recovery, all without aggravating the skin in the process. If they’re looking for a cream rather than a gel, we’ve got that, too!
