Scars and imperfections

If we wound or burn ourselves or undergo surgery, in order to repair the lesions, our body sets a scar-forming process in motion.
However, some scars may be intrusive and spoil our appearance, just like the signs of facial acne for example.
We should also be aware that there are two main types of scars:

- hypertrophic: the tissue regenerates in an excessive amount and as a result the skin remains in relief
atrophic: the tissue regenerates in small quantities and this may also lead to a reopening of the skin in the traumatised area

Treatment of scars

To avoid unsightly scars it is important to remember to apply a specific product on the wound or lesion as right from the first application this will help the natural healing process. Only in this way will it be possible to avoid unsightly scarring.

In fact, gels are available in the pharmacy that contain filmogenous and protective ingredients for promoting the physiological wound-healing mechanisms and counteracting the formation of hypertrophic keloids.

Scars and the sun

When we are out in the sun at the beach or in the garden, we should take care of any areas of our skin where there are scars or lesions that are forming scars. In fact, exposure to the sun’s rays may give rise to hyperpigmentation of the skin. Protect these skin areas with specific products to prevent the scars from turning red and complicating the healing process.

You can find products at the pharmacy that reduce the formation of hypertrophic keloids and encourage the flattening of the scars, thus ensuring a better aesthetic appearance. Thanks to their UV sunscreens these products protect the scars and prevent any reddening and darkening of the skin.
