Chemical Peels for scars are used by many skin care specialists and at WellMedica we provide our customers with a chemical solution that is applied to the skin, which makes it "blister" and eventually peel off. The new skin is then smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin, and can help with skin that has previously been scarred.
What is scarring and how to avoid it?
Scars can result from a biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body, so scarring is a a very natural part of the healing process. Scars can form after a after a cut, scrape, burn, or sore. Usually scars do fade naturally overtime, but sometimes takes years if left untreated. These should be treated sooner than later. Assuming the wound does not become infected, physicians plan excisions to minimize the cosmetic defects produced by scars. This can be accomplished by orienting the wound in such a way so that it will not perturb other structures, so that the scar can be camouflaged by hiding in wrinkle lines or near other anatomical structures.
