Scars

At Roche's Chemists, we have a selection of products for managing currently healing scars and for minimizing the appearance of older, healed, red or raised ( keloid ) scars

The healing of damaged skin can and often does lead to the formation of a scar. This is often only an issue when the scar forms on an area that is cosmetically sensitive such as the face or if there is a long scar, for example after surgery or after a knife wound.

The formation of a scar involves oxidation processes within the healing skin resulting in the familiar appearance of a scar. Vitamin E oil applied directly to the healing ( not the healed) skin can help to permanently minimise the appearance of the final scar. Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant which is able to penetrate through the skin and therefore interrupt the scarring process.

For established fully healed scars, there are a small number of specialized silicone wound dressings that can be applied directly onto the scar, left in place for a number of hours and which temporarily, reduce the appearance of the scar.

These wound dressings can be used repeatedly on the same scar to reduce the appearance of both red and raised ( keloid ) scars.
