Traumatic scarring can be the result of accident or injury or as a result of surgical intervention, planned or otherwise.
Traumatic scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after an injury. Scarring is a natural part of wound healing however collagen formed after injury can be of an inferior functional quality and the cosmetic result of a scar can often be displeasing. Scars often have an inferior ability to function making them less resistant to UVA/UVB rays and often sweat glands and hair follicles do not grow back within scar tissue.
If a surgical operation is planned, it is a great idea to get skin in optimum health before surgery. Active skin creams including Vitamin A can help ensue skin has the optimum condition for good healing and skin nutrition in the form of supplementation can be of great help.
Again, during the healing stage of a scar, active topical skin creams can make a huge impact on successful skin healing and together with specific skin supplements can go along way to encourage skin to heal healthily, leaving a more positive cosmetic outcome.
Prevention is better than cure and if an operation is planned, consider ways to optimise skin healing before the operation date to ensure skin is in optimum health prior to surgery.
