Skin Care Tip: Scar treatment

submitted by Jaqui Faucitt, Bedfordview, South Africa

For many years plastic surgeons have been taping new scars, whether they are operative or traumatic. People should be made aware that fragranced tissue oils are not going to help wound healing and can, in many cases, leave the person with a lumpy, ugly scar. I therefore suggest that one should apply microporous paper tape to a new scar as soon as the stitches are removed, especially if the scar is over a joint or bony area. Do not tape eyelids. The tape will hold down the scar and prevent it stretching. It should be left on for 4 to 5 days at a time. One should apply RegimA SCAR REPAIR & ANTI-STRETCH Cream over the top of the tape 3 times daily. This will ensure that the scar matures more rapidly. One should continue use as above until the scar is pale and flat.
