Removal of keloid scars using scar cream- How does it work?
Does your keloid scar give you sleepless nights and yet you are scared of removing it through surgery? Indeed, laser treatment, cryotherapy, radiation etc are both painful and expensive. The good news is that there are simpler and cheaper ways to remove keloids! If you aren't already aware, the advances in pharmacology have lead to the development of many scar creams/ gels that can remove even keloid and hypertrophic scars quite effectively.
What are Keloid scars?
Medically speaking, a Keloid scar is the result of excessively aggressive healing of an injury. In order to repair the injury, body tissues produce excessive collagen fibres. As a result, sometimes the scar grows out of control and even protrudes beyond the boundaries of the original wound. Keloids can be of rubbery to fibrous texture with their colours may range from white to reddish.
How does a good scar cream help?
A good scar cream contains many proven ingredients including Retinyl Palmitate, Coenzyme Q-10, Onion Extract, Pycnogenol, Glucosamine, Arnica Herb, Lecithin, Grape Seed Extract, Green Tea Extract, Allantoin and Bisabolol. These ingredients have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which helps them to ward off the damage causing free radicals and suppress the inflammation and swelling around the injury.
As a result, the cream inhibits the over production of collagen in and around the scars and promotes proper cell growth and regeneration. It also increases the nutrient supply to the affected area by increasing the blood circulation to the wound area and thereby improves the elasticity of the skin.
The scar cream penetrates deep into the epidermal layer of the skin. It then triggers the growth of new cells, which in turn reduces the keloid scar visible over the skin. The scar cream also makes the scar softer and blends it nicely with the adjacent tissues; and thus makes the scar lesser noticeable.
For quicker improvement, the user must apply this cream regularly, three to four times a day. To get the best results, it is suggested to combine silicone sheeting and silicone scar gel along with the scar cream. So, with the help of a scar cream, scar gel and silicone sheeting, you can hope to have a smooth complexion all over again.
