What Are Scars?

...And what can be done about them?


Are you curious to know about scars, how they form and what you can do to treat them?... well you've come to the right place!

How scars are caused

A Scar is an ‘after product’ from the way your body responds to the healing of damaged skin. It might be from a burn, an accidental cut or even a sporting injury.

Your body's natural response is to heal and protect itself, so immediately after any kind of skin damage or trauma your skin will swell out and inflame in an effort to start the healing process and to help shield the area from further damage

Some minor skin damage will eventually heal up and leave no trace of a scar, while other injuries will always be there and act as a painful reminder how you got the scar in the first place.

What are scars and what are they made of?

When the dermis (upper layer of your skin) gets damaged through some kind of trauma, your skin reacts by forming a type of ‘glue’ (in the form of collagen) in an effort to heal and repair the damaged area. Unfortunately too much of this ‘glue’ often gets formed, which results in thick scar tissue being formed.

Types of Scars

  • Keloid scarring:

Thick scars with a rubbery feel, that protrude (stick out) from the skin

  • Acne scars: 

Scars left from acne damage, acne scars are usually indented into the skin to form small pits

  • Stretch Marks:

Not many people know that stretch marks are a type of scarring, they are caused by the skin ‘stretching’ and tearing due to pregnancy, rapid weight gain/weight loss or body building

  • Burns

Skin burns are often called contracture scars which caused the skin to tighten and may make moving the area feel quite uncomfortable

  • Hypertrophic scars

These scars are similar to keloid scars but are usually red in color and don’t breach the boundaries of the original injury site (unlike keloids)

Treating scars

There are ways and means of dramatically reducing the ugly appearance of your scars. People think laser treatment is the only effectively way to treat scars, but that is simply not true, in fact I have seen 100’s of cases where lasers have actually made the scarring a lot worse, this is because lasers work by ‘re-damaging the skin’ to re-activate the skins natural repair process… why this method can work quite well on some people, in others, the damage caused by the laser can actually make the scarring more red, inflamed and even grow 'bigger' than it was before!

Creams and lotions are also pretty useless when it comes to treating scars, 99% of Cream and lotions are ‘water based’ which means they are not able to penetrate the skin deep enough to activate any kind of repair process in the skin

What I Found Works great on ‘Any’ type of Scarring

I have successfully treated hundreds of scars and stretch marks using this very routine:

Scars Treatment Routine:

>> Morning (exfoliation)

Mix a paste of baking soda and water in the palm of your hand and very gently rub into the affected scarring for 1-2 minutes and wash off completely with warm water

Or…. If you are short on time, use a good exfoliating scrub in the shower and massage into the affected area of scarring (for at least 1 minute)

Now apply a good lipid based (water free) scar product such as Skinderma Pro onto your skin and massage in well

>> Evening

Apply lemon juice (fresh or pre bottled) to the scars and leave it to soak into your skin for 5-10 minutes (the citric acid helps break down the scar tissue) **You don't need to wash it off**

Now apply Skinderma Pro (or good scar product) again and massage well into the skin
