Proper scar care is a must for both men and women. The problem is that we simply don’t focus on clearing up men’s scars enough. SO many people have the same question. They ponder whether or not scars truly are permanent. Is it possible to really fade them away? That all depends really. I’m going to give you a rundown of things that you men need to understand about scars and getting rid of them if you have ’em.
Caring For Scars: The Men’s Guide
The first thing that you’ll want to do is identify the type of scars that you have. That’s definitely the very first thing that you need to do before you head out to the pharmacy for some miracle cream. Take a close look at the scars and determine whether or not they are keloid scars, hypertrophic, or some other type of scar. You can read up on the types of scars on this page. The reason this is important is due to the fact that different types of scars require difference treatment methods.
Once you’ve determined the type of scarring that you have, now it’s time to take some action. If it turns out that you have either keloid scars or hypertrophic scars, then you want to apply some silicone bandages to them. This will help reduce the discoloring that exists and it may also help flatten the scar. All you have to do is wear the adhesive bandage until it falls off, pretty effortless really.
If you have a lot of skin discoloring, then you might want to try applying a vitamin C serum of some sort. That goes especially if your scars have a brownish tint to them. In the event that you scars are red then you might want to find a serum containing hyaluronic acid. The good news is, you’ve literally got thousands of options on the market today.
If you’re really worried, you can head to the dermatologist or doctors office for some scar treatment. The only problem is that you’ve got to be ready to spend money when the time comes. Insurance isn’t going to help you out that much at all. Ask people for references and get estimates before agreeing to any treatment.
Last but not least, protect your skin. If you’re foolishly still avoiding the use of sun block and other UV ray protectants, then you’re still doing it wrong. It’s near impossible to repair skin that’s continuously getting beaten up by current environmental elements.
When the time comes to take action, you’ll know it. I had a scar myself which I neglected to treat. One day I woke up and decided I wanted it gone. That’s when I began putting forth lots of time and energy into achieve better-looking skin. Sure enough, as time passed on, the scar began to look better.
