Scars & Reparing Creams

Scars & Reparing Creams

What it is and what it is for?


Healing products are a great way to speed up the healing process of various types of wounds, as they help skin cells to recover more quickly, being a good option to treat wounds caused by surgery, blows or burns, for example.
Usually, the use of healing products helps to prevent infections, as they prevent the proliferation of microorganisms, close the skin more quickly, reduce pain and prevent the formation of ugly scars.
Scar reducers do the same as healing, with creams that contain a mixture of active ingredients that, in addition to accelerating healing, have a moisturizing, antioxidant, soothing and bactericidal action.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Healing and scar reducing products may contain the following ingredients:
Hyaluronic acid, which is a polysaccharide found in many places in the human body, such as skin, eye and connective tissue.
Rosehip oil, for a regenerating action that improves skin elasticity.
Asian sparkle triterpenes, with healing, firming and moisturizing actions.
Niacinamide, for an anti-inflammatory action that improves skin color.
Glycerin, for a moisturizing action.
Dexpanthenol, which reduces pigmentation and itching, reinforces the barrier action, regenerates and moisturizes.
Dextran sodium sulfate, with anti-edematous, anti-exudative and anticoagulant properties.
Antioxidant Vitamin E Acetate, a connective tissue repairer with anti-inflammatory properties.

What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The packaging format most used in healing products is individual packaging, tubes, among others. Sizes range from 20g to 50g.


What to take into account when choosing scars and repairing creams?


The skin loses hydration with the passage of time and is more likely to be left with marks after a slight injury. The scars are those marks that are on the skin after the wound closes, they are like the visible part of a lesion in the dermis.
The healing processes can be improved with repair and special products for injured skin, taking into account the type of healing. In addition to always recommending visiting a dermatologist, a topical solution in the form of ointments, creams or oils can be applied to reduce its aesthetic appearance.
Regenerating products for injured skin can be facial or body creams, but they all contain active ingredients with repairing properties.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


You should always clean the wound immediately, as minor wounds do not need further care.
On extensive or dirty wounds, you can apply an antiseptic after washing.
Do not use more than one antiseptic at the same time.


What are the pros and cons of using scars and repairing creams?


No scar can be completely removed and the treatments always leave traces.
However, there are products developed specifically to reduce thick and reddish scars, making them less visible, eventually reducing the raised and colored scars, when applied regularly.
The creams stimulate the skin's natural regeneration process, creating the ideal environment: the temperature in the scar tissue increases.
Enzyme activity and metabolic processes are stimulated to captivate the restructuring in scar tissue.
