Scar Prevention & Advice

Preventing Unsightly Scars

Page includes graphic images – viewer discretion advised

Once a surgical wound has closed, the stitches removed and the consultant signed you off, that’s usually it.  You now have a fresh scar that still needs caring for to get the best cosmetic appearance, but we’re rarely taught how

I’d like to share how, it’s surprisingly simple, and costs very little

Fresh Scar Tissue

Once the stiches have been removed, fresh scar tissue is holding the wound together.  For areas of high movement i.e tummy and around the shoulder, or areas prone to gravity stretching i.e tummy and breast, the fresh scar tissue is working far harder that it should be.  One of two things will happen, the scar will form into a fibrous bump of tissue, or become a stretched scar, which can be loose or tight.  So it would make sense to help support the fresh scar tissue with micropore tape, thus holding the area together

Micropore Tape

Simply tape over the scar with micropore tape, easily found in chemists, 2.5cm x 10m costs about £4

  • The width of the tape you use should completely cover and support the scar, surrounding it by about 1cm. 
  • The tape should be applied to a clean scar with no greasiness on the surrounding skin.  Apply the tape firmly.
  • The tape must be left on until it comes off naturally (5 to 7 days), and replaced.  Do not remove daily as this will cause irritation.
  • Continue taping until the scar matures, becoming pale and flat. This may take a couple of months.

This method must not be used on wounds, or skin that has any broken surface

When stretch marks are no longer fresh pink, and scars older than 6 months (usually white), they are considered mature and need waking up before these creams will benefit.  Dry tattooing wakes up the skin

ZONE TIP

For new scars use Scar Repair Cream or Super Strength Serum applying immediately following suture removal 2 to 4 times daily. May be done alone or over the top of micropore tape, which is recommended by plastic surgeons for certain operations such as breast or tummy tuck. For keloid scars massage several times daily

Hypertrophic & Keloid Scars are scars that manifested as pink, red, purple, itchy, painful, raised and usually remain in that condition for years if untreated, therefore massage them with pressure Scar Serum or Cream daily into affected scarred areas

A combined treatment would be recommended for burns, including radiotherapy burns
