If you’re wondering how to remove scars you may be a little disappointed. Scar removal is actually very difficult and it’s normally impossible to get rid of one completely. On the other hand, if you’re wondering how to gradually improve a scar’s appearance, you might be pleasantly surprised. With the right skin care routine it may be possible in some cases to make a difference in the size, shape, and color of scarred skin, making some scars less noticeable to the eye.
Scars form when a surface wound or injury to the skin heals. As your skin heals you’ll often find scabs will form over the area. These help protect the wound from infection while the new skin develops. Once the wound has healed, a scar may appear. Many of us would like to improve the appearance of our scars – they can look dry and rough, and sometimes feel itchy. Many scars will fade naturally over time, but there are some skin care techniques – including the use of Vaseline® Jelly – that may help their visual improvement and help relieve any itchiness associated with dry skin you may be experiencing.
