Scar Healing - Healing of Scars

By: Clarita Milles


The skin is designed to repair wounds quickly to prevent blood loss and infection. When the body is injured, a 'collagen glue" is formed that the body deposits into the injured area for immediate defense and strength. Ideally, when the skin is healing, the damaged area should slowly be repaired and the collagen fibers replaced.
Scars are always needed to reconnect skin that has been damaged and, therefore, any dermal injury will result in some scarring. A new scar might be dark and raised but most will eventually level out and pale, becoming less noticeable with time.
Scar healing is a lengthy process and can even take up to ten years. In children, the remodeling rate is high and scars heal quickly and are often rapidly eliminated from injured skin areas. Moving into adulthood, this rate slows and scars remain visible for longer.
Keloids are a type of scar that is dense and puckered; it is often itchy and grows beyond the original area of injury, without regressing. They appear when the body keeps producing tough, fibrous collagen after a wound has healed.
Keloid scars can result from any type of injury to the skin, including scratches, tattoos, insect bites, injections or medical procedures. The most common areas for keloids to arise are the breastbone, the earlobes and the shoulders.
Hypertrophic scars used to be difficult to distinguish from keloid scars histologically and biochemically, but unlike keloids, hypertrophic scars are confined to the injury site and usually mature and even out over time. Both hypertrophic and keloid scars are raised scars, secreting more collagen than other scars, however, in hypertrophic scars you will see a lessening of collagen output after approximately six months.
Atrophic scars are the opposite and are lacking in collagen and skin, and therefore elasticity. An example of an atrophic scar is striae distensae, also known as stretch marks.
Healing Scars Faster
The general idea of one method to accelerate the body's repair process and heal hypertrophic scars is to re-damage the area in a controlled manner (with needles, lasers, acid, etc.) to stimulate the regeneration of healthy skin.
Another idea in the scar treatment market is to utilize enzymes and skin renewal fibroblast activators to promote the body's own reconstruction processes, thereby healing scar tissue and obtaining improved results. Fibroblasts are basal membrane skin cells that are the beginning step in constructing healthy skin, including those that eventually lend moisture, tensile strength and elasticity. These enzymes and activators are typically found in healing scar creams.
A Natural Serum to Heal Scars Quickly
Instead of an invasive scar revision treatment, try healing scars naturally with a serum collected from the garden snail that promotes skin regeneration and has similar properties to our own skin. It also manages dermal fibroblast and collagen production. By managing a balanced output of fibroblasts and collagen, you can keep keloid and hypertrophic scars at bay.
