A Natural Product for Scars
Scars appear on the skin after a wound or injury has healed.
Most of the time, scars will fade over time, taking up to two years or more.
How can you improve the appearance of scars?
1. Try to keep your scar covered when you're in the sun for at least a year, wearing a covering of clothing or even applying a dressing. You could also use a natural sunblock to protect it.
2. Skin camouflage can be achieved with special creams and powders that you can apply to your skin to cover your scar so it's less noticeable.
3. Seek medical attention if:
- a scar is swollen or painful
- a scar feels warm to the touch
- a scar has pus coming out of it
4. Cryotherapy which is a minimally- invasive treatment that freezes skin surface lesions using extremely cold liquid or instruments (cryogen). Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery or cryoablation, can be delivered with various cryogens. Liquid nitrogen is the most common and effective cryogen for clinical use.
5. Laser therapy for scars is a procedure that uses light beams to reduce the appearance of scars, making it less noticeable. It is not suitable for all types of scars - especially those that are very deep or wide. It may cause increased pigmentation in those with dark skin tones while a series of treatments is usually required to achieve optimal results.
What are the different types of scars?
Scars can be many colours such as pink, red, purple, white, brown, skin-coloured or darker than the skin around it.
They can also be itchy, painful or uncomfortable.
Fine-line scars can be slightly raised but they usually flatten and fade over time.
Atrophic scars can be deep, small holes in the skin looking like deep pores or they can be a larger and slightly sunken mark. Most likely after acne or chickenpox.
Keloid scars are usually raised, hard and smooth, growing to be bigger than the original wound. The skin surrounding the scar may be uncomfortable or difficult to move - not usually flattening or fading if left without treatment.
Hypertrophic scars are usually raised and firm. While this type of scar does not grow to be bigger than the original wound, the scar can become uncomfortable or difficult to move. It will usually fade and flatten over time.
Contracture scars will feel tight while the area where the scar appears may be difficult or painful to move. They usually appear following a burn.
The natural way to deal with a scar
Our H-Scars Formula is safe and effective in reducing the appearance of many different scars.
With its cell regenerating and skin nourishing properties, and when used as directed, the Formula will safely and gently reduce the appearance of new and older scars while promoting a healthy skin tone.
H-Scars Formula is applied topically, directly to the scar using a Q-Tip or your finger. This formula is concentrated and has a deep penetrating action. Therefore only a few drops per application are needed.
And how long will it take for your scars to fade? The process varies from person to person depending on the severity of the scars. However, it is important to know that the Formula can be used for fresh wounds which will help to reduce their appearance before they occur.
If you have old scars and the Formula is applied as instructed, results are typically visible after six to eight weeks while treating new scars can speed up the process to some four to eight weeks. Keeping up with applying the Formula means that results will further improve with time.
