How to get rid of scars

At RY, we feel that scars are beautiful. However, for some people, scars can really impact their confidence. Therefore, we have created this blog post in an attempt to help educate on what scars are, how they are created and how you can prevent them. In addition to this, we have pooled together our expertise to pick out some products that we believe will help improve the appearance of your scars.

What are scars, and how are they created?

A scar is the result of the body rebuilding tissue that has previously been damaged. Scars are simply an indicator of where the skin has been wounded and are usually composed of fibrous tissue. Depending on the injury that has occurred, there are different scar types. These can include fine line scars, keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, pitted or sunken scars and scar contractures. The severity of the injury, and how much the skin has had to heal, will determine how noticeable the scars are.

Prevention tips

We understand that it is not always possible, nor practical, to prevent scars. The injuries from which they occur can’t always be foreseen. However, in some circumstances, such as a pre-planned procedure, some precautions can be taken to ensure that scarring is prevented. For example, you can use silicone-based products, as these can easily be added to a daily skincare routine. Silicone itself is highly effective at reducing the appearance of a scar, as it can help boost the skin’s elasticity. As well as reducing scars, the silicone can act against signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines, making it a great multitasker.

How to reduce the appearance of them

Scar reduction is an area that has been thoroughly researched, meaning that there is a range of different ways in which their appearance can be reduced. This can include professional dermatological chemical peels, dermabrasion, and injections, just to name a few. However, these procedures can be quite costly, meaning that they are not always accessible for the everyday consumer. Therefore, at RY, we have listed some of the best products that we feel can offer more natural scar reduction results.
