How to Prevent a Scar
A scar screams look at me.
That’s what it can feel like anyway, to the individual bearing such a physical marker of trauma to the body. And on those warm, clothing-optional days of summer, or in the privacy of your bedroom, with a loved one or partner, that stings.
Some folks go to extreme lengths to conceal their scars with clothes and make-up. That’s sad because a little scar prevention and scar treatment cream for developing and existing scars can reduce a scar or even prevent it completely.
In this article we’ll review how to care for a wound, to nip a scar before it develops. We’ll also articulate how to care for existing scars, and how a scar treatment system, like Dermefface FX7 Scar Reduction Therapy, can fade a scar and the damage it does to your self-confidence.
The single best thing you can do to prevent a scar is to get it early.
Scars form for a variety of reasons, including acne, chicken pox, surgery, an injury or child-birth via caesarian section. Depending on the origins of and severity of the trauma, a scar can take anywhere from several months to two years to develop.
Though surgery, serious injury and more severe trauma to the body tend to cause the most noticeable scarring, even a light scrape can become a scar if you don’t take basic precautions. For basic scar prevention, do the following:
Clean a Fresh Scrape or Cut – Run the wound under clean water. Remove pebbles or splinters with alcohol-sterilized tweezers. Carefully wash the wound with soap and a clean cloth. Avoid harsh soaps, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol and iodine for minor wounds, as these can delay the healing process.
Cover Up – Cover your scrape or wound to reduce bacteria, dirt, and irritants. Keep the wound moist, preferably with an antibiotic cream or ointment. The last point is especially important, as it will reduce the appearance of your scar should it develop.
Don’t Pick the Scabs – After an injury, the body immediately starts the healing process, with white blood cells that attack bacteria and red blood cells, platelets, and fibrin that form a clot over the wound. Pick at the scabbing that develops and not only do you risk re-opening the wound, you open the door for bacteria that can create a larger, more prominent scar.
Despite your best efforts, it’s not impossible that a scar will form regardless of the time and TLC you’ve put into scar prevention. That’s like – some folks are more prone to scarring than others.
A deep scar involves all three dermal tissues: the subcutaneous, dermis and epidermis, and can take up to two years to develop. In other words, if the wound is lingering, it’s time to shift to reduction mode.
First, be aware that scars tend to develop in areas of the body that are constantly being pulled and strained. The chest and shoulders are common areas for scarring to develop, and in that light, it’s a good idea to avoid heavy lifting or upper-body exercises as your wound continues to heal.
Second, consider a scar reduction system as the scar develops. This should reduce the severity of the scar and makes a less painful treatment than laser surgery, which is usually done after the scar is completely formed.
A scar treatment cream is formulated with active natural ingredients, moisturizers, and patented peptides to interact with the skin’s 28-day regeneration process. Specifically, it should:
Stimulate Natural Collagen Production – Both skin-healing type III and skin-strengthening collagen I.
Push Scarred Skin Cells to the Surface – A scar treatment cream gently nudges the skin healing process so that dead and damaged cells rise to the surface of the skin, where they’re sloughed away.
Increase Production of Healthy Skin Cells – With more collagen production and exfoliation of dead skin cells, normal, healthy skin cells replace scarred skin, for the visible reduction of scarring.
Studies show that niacinamide, beta glucans, and some antioxidants, including tocopherols, can reduce hyperpigmentation and encourage natural, healthy turn-over of skin cells. Such natural ingredients moisturize, exfoliate, and ultimately, reduce and even prevent scarring.
If you want to prevent or reduce scarring without steroids or laser treatment, opt for Dermefface FX7 Scar Reduction Therapy by the Skinception line of skin-care products, which as clinical studies suggest, may reduce scarring in as little as four weeks.
Dermefface FX7 is a scar reduction gel – a topical application of 7 active ingredients and 5 moisturizers that visibly reduce scarring with an easy-to-use pump action bottle.
It’s a blend of the most recent developments in ‘scar-fade’ technology that allows people to fade and sometimes even prevent developing scars without the need for laser surgery, cosmetic surgery or dermabrasion.
Some people are calling it ‘an eraser for scars’.
The formula interacts with the three layers of skin and hastens the wound healing process. It’s a guide, really, helping the skin through the four-stage skin remodeling phase, which can take up to two years, so the scar that develops is small, less noticeable, or non-existent.
As well, it’s designed to stimulate collagen and slough away scarred skin cells, which are replaced with new, and notably, unscarred, skin from below. This makes it useful for older, more established scars along with marks that are still developing.
You can fade scars of almost any origin with Dermefface FX7, including scars from acne, burns, injury, surgery, accidents and even hypertrophic scars. The one exception is that Dermefface FX7 is not recommended for keloid scars – an aggressive form of scarring in which skin is damaged well beyond the original wound.
Seven clinically proven active ingredients and five powerful moisturizers, each chosen for their ability to heal skin, stimulate collagen, guide wound healing and encourage the body along the skin remodeling phase.
Some numbers to ponder. The ingredients in Dermefface FX7 are proven to:
Speed Wound Healing By 30% (Dl-Panthenol)Increase Production of Type 1 Collagen By 1190% (Pro-Coll-One+)Increase Production of Type III Collagen By 1257% (Vitalayer)Reduce Skin Hyperpigmentation in 89% of study participants (Niacinamide)Increase Skin Moisturization by 100% in 14 days (Hydrolite 5)
How is Dermefface FX7 different than other scar reduction gels?
Ask Lisa D’Amato, winner of America’s Next Top Model why she chose Dermefface FX7 over other products: she likes Dermefface FX7 because it’s gentle, non-greasy and fades scars quickly. Most of all, it’s really good at fading scars (which, sadly, not all so-called ‘scar-removal products’ actually do).
As well, Dermefface FX7 comes with a 90-day no-risk money-back guarantee. Another reason why it’s selling out so quickly. You can buy the product, often at a discount, and return it at any time in the first three months for a full refund minus shipping and handling if you’re not happy with the product.Very few customers are returning the product.
When will I see results?
That depends on several factors, including the size of the wound and whether it’s an older scar.
As a general rule, you’ll see results in less than a month. Give Dermefface FX7 three to four months for light or small scars, and at least six months for deep scars and those from injury or surgery.
Is Dermefface FX7 safe?
Very much so. We’ve yet to hear any problems with it, in large part because of the high-quality peptides in the formula and natural-based ingredients like niacinamide. Test a small patch along your jawline if you’re concerned about adverse reactions. But you’ll probably find that it’s very safe indeed.
Is it painful?
Not in the slightest. That’s one of many reasons why Dermefface FX7 is changing the rules for scar reduction – it allows you to fade scars without the pain of laser surgery and cosmetic scar removal practices.
Can I buy it at a discount?
Yes – and you’ll probably want to buy one of their discounted packages too because you’ll get best results when you use it for at least three months. You’ll save $50 when you buy a three months supply and get three free gifts, including Skinception Microderm Facial Exfoliator
Is the product guaranteed?
Yup. As mentioned above, Dermefface FX7 comes with Skinception’s no-risk 90-day money-back guarantee. It’s among the best in the business.
