The skin of humans is a fragile thing. It’s the outermost part of the body and carries the ultimate task of protecting what’s inside of it. Therefore, it takes the first hit, so to speak. Your skin is vulnerable every day to contaminants, disorders, and scars. Scars generally result in a cut or wound that’s healed. While this is a natural bodily process, there are people who dislike having scars. The severity of them can be disregarded, for scars can ruin a person’s overall look. Scars also result in the stretching of the skin and worsening bug bites. You’re probably asking yourself “Well then, how the heck can I get rid of scars?” When there’s a will, there’s a way.
The Natural Route
Recall seeing those kiddy commercials showing dancing fruit? Part of the gang was an apple and orange, two fruits which are rich with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to be a solution for many things, one of which is skin care. Try your hand at Vitamin C by taking two Vitamin C pills and mincing them. Place into 2 oz. of warm water to create a paste. Carefully and thoroughly brush the Vitamin C paste against the scar(s) that you wish to deal with. Cover with a medium-sized band-aid patch. Do this once daily, right before bed.
Vitamin C isn’t all that’s in your arsenal of anti-scar weaponry. Thanks to modern day science, creams that are geared strictly towards dealing with scars are available. Your local pharmacy or grocery store should have this product in stock. Be sure to adhere to the directions that are printed on the box or product itself. Chemical peel treatment may serve as a great alternative. What chemical peels do is they eat the outermost area of the skin of the affected area, and works itself deeper into said area gradually. The end result would be the scar being less noticeable, if not fully eaten at. Consult with a doctor for more info regarding chemical peel treatment if you choose to take that route.
Sure, surgery may be the primarily responsible for your current scarring. However, there are various forms of surgery. There’s a surgical procedure that involves cutting the layer of the skin that contains the scar. Consult with a doctor for more information. This is the most expensive method of removing scars.
Surgery’s the most expensive method for removing scars. If you can afford it, then great! If not, then don’t be ashamed of your scars. Think of a scar as a badge, or a representation of endurance and life experience.
