5 Key Ingredients For Scar Management
Scars are inevitable following major surgeries, burns, and injuries. It’s likely that your patients are already preparing for their post-operative scars by searching for the best products with the best ingredients to help them heal quickly and reduce the appearance of their scars. Maybe they’ve discovered silicone sheeting, or are choosing between scars and gels that each have a unique combination of ingredients, which can be an overwhelming decision. If you would like to know how to steer them in the right direction, here’s a list of five key ingredients for scar management!
One of the best ingredients for products aimed at fading your scars is silicone. Silicone can be used as a gel in a topical treatment, or as silicone sheets meant to be pressed against any fresh or aging scars. Silicone is wonderful for use on more severe, deeper scarring as it works to reduce redness and helps to smooth raised scars. The International Advisory Panel on Scar Management has stated that silicone scar sheets are the #1 preferred treatment for scars. Rejuvaskin Scar Fx Silicon Sheets are great for treating fresh or aged scarring. Silicone scar sheets decrease collagen production allowing for a smoother, flatter scar with less discoloration.
While it may not necessarily sound like something that would help heal scars, onion extract is actually a wonderful agent for accelerating the wound-healing process due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Onion extract contains bioflavonoids that work to significantly reduce the appearance of scars with daily use after only a few weeks. But you don’t need to rub a raw onion on your skin to achieve the scar-healing results—Rejuvaskin Scar Esthetique contains onion bulb extract as one of its active ingredients for minimizing scarring.
Arnica is a flower that has been used for its many health and homeopathic benefits, one of which being its anti-inflammatory properties. It is gentle and can be used on a variety of different skin areas and types of scarring. You can find arnica flower extract in our Scar Esthetique product!
Vitamin E is essential for proper function of your body, but it can also serve to diminish the look and feel of scarring. Vitamin E works to repair and regenerate scarring and damaged tissue. Patients find vitamin E a key ingredient to apply to the skin after a procedure which breaks the skin, as it encourages healing and prevents further damage.
Your patients will likely find a variety of scar gels and creams with peptides found in them. Peptides are made from amino acids and work to stimulate the healing process for scarring. By speeding up the wound-healing process, peptide scar healing creams and gels can work to diminish the look of non-raised scars and raised keloid scars, while also treating the discoloration. You can find peptides in the ingredients section of Rejuvaskin Scar Heal products under a few different names, including palymitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide.
