Scar Healing and Reduction
Scars form due to some trauma to the skin tissue, whether it is the result of an injury, burn, surgery, or other damage done to the skin. Tough, fibrous scar tissue forms over and replaces normal skin as it heals; scarring can take on a wide variety of appearances and typically fades over time. The body’s natural healing process can be augmented and sped up to more quickly reduce the appearance of scarring, and our large selection of over the counter remedies for scar healing and reduction helps our consumers heal as soon as possible.
Scarring can happen to anybody, and your scar healing and reduction needs can vary widely depending on your specific type of scarring, how old the scar is, and what your lifestyle is like. That is why we offer so many different kinds of scar reduction creams, gels, and sheets: so that we can ensure you get the right product for you. Our products at MakeMeHeal vary from self-adhesive silicone scar sheets to topical creams and gels with a wide range of active ingredients including vitamins, natural ingredients, and herbal extracts. They are designed to not only improve and speed up the healing process, but also to make the scar much less noticeable.
There are many different types of scars, from keloids, post-surgery scars, hypertrophic scars, acne scars, and just plain old injury scars. These scars can also have very different characteristics in their color, size, thickness, and height (whether the scar is raised or flat). Because scars are so diverse, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for our customers. Our range of products are designed to reduce the overall appearance of all types of scars in their size, thickness, height, or color, but we also offer products to limit its growth, to smooth and soften the scar, reduce itchiness along the edges of a scar, lessen redness in the surrounding area, and help blend the scar into the healthy skin.
Regardless of your scar’s origin, age, or appearance, we offer a solution to speed its recovery and reduce its appearance. Browse our Scar Reduction Creams & Gels or Scar Reduction Sheets aisles and rest easy in our assurance that you are getting the best of the over the counter treatments available. All of our products are genuine and we take great pride in our reputation as the #1 trusted vendor and site.
Scar Reduction and Healing FAQ
What scar reduction and healing treatments are available on MakeMeHeal?
We offer a wide range of the most effective, over the counter scar healing treatments available. We carry topical creams, gels, and ointments, each with their own active ingredient, as well as scar sheets.
Who can use these treatments?
With our wide variety of scar healing products, there is sure to be a scar reduction solution for everyone. Our products are safe and can be used by people of all ages to help heal their scars, whether you are a child or an adult.
Do I need a prescription for these treatments?
No, the scar healing and reduction treatments we offer are over the counter products. You do not need a prescription to order these products, but as with all medical grade products, please follow the directions carefully for maximum effectiveness and safety.
Which treatment is right for me?
The most effective treatment for your specific case will vary widely on your own lifestyle and specific scarring. We offer a wide variety of products so that there is a solution to match everyone’s preferences. For example, an athlete may prefer a silicone scar sheet as it is less likely to get rubbed or perspired off, whereas someone else may prefer the massaging aspect of an ointment.
When can I start using these treatments?
These scar reduction treatments are meant after a wound has completely healed. If you still have an open wound, please wait for it to completely heal before using our scar healing products. In most cases, this means that the scab has fallen off naturally (without picking!), or the stitches have been removed. Until then, please keep your wound clean and protected, which will help reduce any potential scarring.
Do these treatments work on older scars?
Yes, these treatments are designed to work on all scars, regardless of age, type, or origin. While it is preferable to begin treating a scar as soon as possible, even older scars can benefit from our scar reduction treatments.
If I stop using a scar reduction treatment, will my scars return?
No, the scar healing and reduction is permanent, except in rare cases of keloid scars. Once you are happy with the results of your treatment, you may discontinue its use.
