How To Get Rid Of Scars
If you have an unsightly scar on your face or another highly conspicuous location on your body, you know how hard it can be to function normally around new acquaintances. You can’t help but constantly think about how much they seem to be staring at your scar or what they might be thinking about it. In general, scars can detract from what is most important; who you really are. If you are tired of it all, check out these helpful tips on how to get rid of scars.
Fortunately for those who have had bad accidents or undergone invasive surgeries, it is possible to remove scar tissue permanently from the skin. Some people who are more prone to scaring have a more difficult time healing and getting rid of scars, but it is still possible. The techniques discussed here are: rubbing, light therapy and vitamin therapy. Most people find that a combination of these methods provides results in no time.
The most primitive yet effective technique for removing a scar is rubbing. Yes, it is possible to rub a scar off your body. Of course, this process is time consuming, laborious, slow to take effect but does indeed work. Scar tissue is simply dead or dormant skin cells that have been damaged and thus are impermeable to blood flow. By constantly rubbing scarred skin, the elastic collagen rich tissue can be broken down and will allow blood to flow. This technique is commonly used by women in developing countries to remove stretchmarks after childbirth because they lack access to more expensive treatments like light therapy or vitamin therapy.
Light therapy is a relatively new treatment that has been pioneered over the last five years. Light therapy uses low level laser technology that exposes the tissue to several wavelengths of red and infrared light. This causes the cells to “wake up” and begin producing cell energy (also known as ATP). This process causes the dormant skin cells to start producing at normal levels and thus begin to transform the scar tissue into new cells. This method is similar to laser, but not nearly as painful or expensive. Light therapy helps the body heal itself. After all the body is the one that already knows how to get rid of scars. It just needs someone to shed some light on the subject. Light therapy is most effective when combined with vitamin therapy.
Vitamin therapy can be used to get rid of scars if the scars are recently formed. For most people, scars are a result of improper and incomplete healing. When the skin becomes injured and it needs to be repaired, the body uses whatever means necessary to close the wound effectively. If the body is under stress or lacks proper nutrition scar tissue can form. By introducing the right combination of vitamins C, E, and B the body will have all the inputs necessary to form healthy skin where a recent laceration or wound occurred.
Having a large scar in an obvious place on your body can be extremely uncomfortable. Luckily, treatments are available regardless of your income level or access to treatment. No matter what your situation may be, you now know how to get rid of scars once and for all.
