While some people think that scars add to the character, some would rather do something else to boost their character and live a scar-free life. Scars can remind you of some unfortunate things in life. They can be results of simple accidents and stupid behavior that you just want to leave behind. On the other hand, you may feel that they are esthetically unacceptable and just want to get rid of them. Here are some of the ways that you can make sure to leave those scars behind and hide them from the eyes of others.
Naturally, the best way to hide scars is not to have any in the first place. Once you hurt yourself and have that wound, it is important to make all the right steps to avoid the scar from appearing in the first place. You need to make sure that the wound is clean and that the infection is avoided. Infection will definitely make the scar bigger and inevitable. Wound needs to be properly taken care of and dressed.
Care of the New Scars
Once the wound closes, you need to make sure that you don’t touch those scabs and never, ever, ever, pick them and make them fall off prematurely. If you do that, the skin underneath the scab will be too gentle to form the new one right away and the scar tissue will get deeper, in this way making the more visible scar. Once the scab is gone and you have the new scar there, you need to use creams as frequently and as disciplined as possible. They will reduce the scars or make it disappear completely.
Hiding the Scars
If the scar is there and it is there to stay, there are many ways that you can make it invisible. Concealers need to be in the right shade. Choose the right tone, otherwise they will not do a good job and they will only attract the attention to the scar.
One of the best ways to reduce the visibility of the scars is to use sunblock. This will prevent the hyperpigmentation and make the scar less visible. Also, some people use bleachers to make it blend in with your skin tone and diminish the pigmentation. There are some silicone gels that, when used for about three months, can make the scar fade.
After all the chemical and dermatological ways, there are always some more invasive ways to deal with the scars. You can use fillers that also affect he texture of your skin. One of the ways is to deal with them by abrasion and lasers which remove some layers of the skin and level it with other skin around the scar. The last resort is plastic surgery that cannot entirely remove the scar, but it can alter it and make it smaller and less visible. After that, you can treat it further with other types of scar treatments.
