5 Tips to Lighten Stubborn Scars!
from Dr Owen Sunga, Regional Medical Director of Merz Asia Pacific
1. Fresh Scars Are Particularly Sensitive
Avoid extreme temperatures for six months to a year. Do not go to saunas or stay outside when it is very cold – this may negatively affect the regeneration process of the skin. Make sure you cover your scar well when you go out in cold weather.
2. Regular Massage Helps To Support the Healing Process of the Skin
The combination of Mederma Proactive Gel plus careful massage can help to loosen up the scar tissue and aid the formation of healthy tissue. Apply the gel to the middle of the scar, slowly spread it outwards, and rub it in with small circular motions.
3. Contrary To Popular Thinking, Sunlight Does Not Fade Scars
In fact, Dr Sunga recommends that you not expose your scar to the sun, as scar tissue does not produce melanin to shield the skin against UV radiation. Always use sun protection when exposing your scar to UV rays.
4. Bathing Stubborn Scars May Speed Up The Healing Process
Scars on certain areas such as the elbows and knees may tend to be more scaly or drier. To soften them, add a squirt of Mederma Proactive Gel to lukewarm water and bathe the scar for about 15 minutes.
5. Let Mederma Work Overnight
For large scars, the use of a gel dressing is recommended. Soften the scar tissue first using a warm, moist pad. Then apply Mederma Proactive Gel in a moderately thick layer. Gently massage the gel over the scar, cover the area with thin kitchen foil. Put a dressing on top of this. Then simply leave the gel to work overnight.
