Scarring occurs when skin is injured and the body’s natural healing process kicks into gear. Unfortunately, this process sometimes leaves behind red, rough, or discolored scars. If the injury was severe, the scarring could also result in a depressed scar. This is when the wound edges are slightly flattened out and often appears as a depressed line instead of a raised scar. Luckily, there are ways to minimize scarring and improve the appearance of your scars. Scar creams are specifically formulated to help your skin heal and scar less. They contain a variety of ingredients that promote healing and reduce scar formation. Applying adequate moisture to scars with scar creams, can help prevent the scar from getting worse early on in the healing process and may help to improve the texture and look and feel of all scars.
