Don’t Let Unsightly Scars Mark You for Life


Have you just had a surgery or undergone Caesarian section? Do you have burns on your hands or a cut on your face? Are your unsightly scars making you feel uncomfortable, self-conscious or depressed?

[pq]Scars that are not properly treated or managed can delay the healing process; it can also cause itching, and even lead to recurrence or ulceration of the wound.[/pq]


Patients need to know that healing does not stop with the treatment of their wounds and there are corrective measures available for them, both medicinal and aesthetic.

The notion that scars generally fade over time may be true, and people just learn to live with it. However, the burden – both physical and psychological – that untreated scars bear on the patient can be ‘lightened’ if not totally erased through the use of minimally intrusive medication. It is, therefore, doubly important that wound patients work closely with their doctor to make sure that the scar is healed fully.
