During our travels in the facelift world, we have come across
some scar healing treatments and products that may lead to better
healing of your scars, minimize their ultimate appearance, and
reduce the discomfort of itching that can occur along the scars.
A good number of journeywomen have used these scar healing solutions
with success and some doctors have recommended them as well.
Yet, we should note that the results that you may obtain are
likely to vary from one person to another. As a result, the
scar healing solutions that are discussed may or may not help
your scar healing and diminish scar appearance. For this reason,
these scar healing treatments and products should be treated
as optional. But because of the fact that a good number of women
claimed to have gotten good to excellent results, it is worthwhile
considering adding these treatments and products to your post-op
scar care. Further, it is important to note that these products
and treatments should only come into play once your sutures
and staples have been removed and your wounds have fully closed
(which occurs sometime during days 7-14 post-op). If in doubt,
you should ask your doctor about these scar healing solutions.
Because every doctor has his/her own guidelines for healing,
please be sure to consult with your doctor before you decide
to use any product or follow a tip.
we begin we should note that the current discussion on scar
healing solutions is best understood as a follow-up to Part
1 of our discussion, called Incision/Wound
Care. If you havent yet learned about wound care,
we recommend doing so first to maximize your understanding and
best appreciate our discussion here on scar healing solutions.
Once you have developed an understanding of the wound care issues,
it is advised to return here for Part 2 of the discussion.
to learn about all the issues associated with incisions and
scars, including where and how incisions are made, how they
are closed, suture and staple removal, the progression of incisions/wounds
into scars, what they feel and look like, physical and emotional
issues that women experience, and other related issues, take
a drive to the Incision,
Suture/Staple, & Scar Issues discussion in the Healing
