The most important element for every person is a flawless, healthy skin appearance. The scars on the skin tissue that remain after the wounds and injuries experienced in the past create an obstacle to the healthy appearance. With the scar-scar treatment, which is frequently preferred today, it is aimed to lighten and fade the scars.
General Information About Scars
Scars are part of the natural healing process of human tissue. Scars can make a distinctive appearance on the skin tissue due to accidental injuries, cuts due to surgical procedure, animal bites, burn marks and injections. In addition, scars formed on the tissue as a result of a condition that causes rashes such as chickenpox or acne may require scar treatment.
The itching sensation in the wound is normal and is thought to indicate the activity of the wound, although the exact cause is unknown. In addition, since the new skin formed on the scars is thin, it is necessary to protect it with a sunscreen cream. Because harmful lights can negatively affect the healing process and increase the itching sensation.
All wounds leave scars to a greater or lesser extent, and under normal conditions, wounds on the human body are expected to show a significant healing tendency within 3-4 weeks. However, it takes 6-12 months for the wound to stabilize after the healing process. The length of the process is related to the body’s self-healing methods. Before applying scar-scar treatment to reduce the appearance of scars, it is necessary to wait for the body to complete its self-healing process and to see the final state of the scar.
How to Treat Scars?
It is not possible to completely eliminate scars. The aim of scar-scar treatment is to reduce the size and appearance of scars. In scar-scar treatment, scars that exceed the acceptable limits are tried to be removed by special surgical methods. Z plasty is one of the methods applied for skin transplantation, skin peeling and filling scar aesthetics. Laser, on the other hand, is the most advanced treatment method in scar-scar treatment. The treatment is applied in sessions and has a 60-70% recovery rate.
