Discover the secrets of effective scar care – 7 tips on how you can support your scar healing with active cosmetics


The good news first: an injury to the skin does not always have to be accompanied by a scar! As long as it is superficial, it heals without any visible signs. However, if an injury affects deeper layers of the skin, such as the subcutaneous tissue or the deeper layers such as the subcutaneous fatty tissue, the muscle fascia or the muscle itself, visible scars occur. They are visible in the light or dark pigmentation of the skin, in depressions or bulging shapes. And you have probably already observed that a scar changes over time in size, shape, firmness and sensitivity. It takes approx. 6 months until the scar formation on the face is complete, and on the body such as a surgical scar or after a cesarean section it takes up to up to 18 months.

But don’t worry, with the correct scar care you can support the healing of your skin and effectively treat the scar tissue. Products with special active ingredients can help regenerate scar tissue, relieve symptoms such as itching, a feeling of tension or soothe redness and raised scars. In this blog post you will find tips and information on how you can optimize your scar care on your face and body. So, let’s discover the secrets of effective scar care together!

1. Why effective scar care is important

The scar tissue can occur on both the face and the body and is often associated with an uncomfortable contact feeling. It can be visible in the long term due to unusual skin color, or it can appear bulging and uneven.

However, targeted care and therapy can help the scar heal faster and the tissue become more supple again. The scar adapts to the surrounding skin in flatness and skin color so that it is hardly visible.

Particularly effective are products with special ingredients, which promote the regeneration of the tissue and thus enable effective scar care.

2. The importance of active cosmetics in scar healing

An important factor in scar care is the active cosmetics. Especially with fresh scars, this treatment method can help to improve the scar tissue and prevent unwanted changes in a timely manner. Especially after operations, it is important that the doctor assesses the scar at regular intervals and makes recommendations on how to care for the scar.

But there are also specific products for old, already healed scars that can have a positive effect on the tissue. The correct care and use of active cosmetics are crucial for the success of the therapy.

Before you start using it, the skin should be optimally prepared. It is also important to find out about application instructions and tips on the correct use of active ingredient products for scar care. A successful method to support the healing of fresh scars is to use high-quality and, above all, purely active cosmetic products in combination with suitable therapy.

Ingredients such as parabens, PGEs and drying preservatives should be avoided. In this way you can shorten the time until the scar completely disappears and at the same time improve the appearance of the tissue.

3. Do’s and Don’ts of the ingredients in scar care

Many scar creams only contain silicone oils as an active ingredient. The only function of these oils is to seal the scar so that it does not dry out and is kept moist.

Some rely on herbal substances such as onion extracts. Caution is advised as intolerance reactions can occur.

Other scar creams rely on a proportion of Panthenol with other very high fat contents. Panthenol is a scientifically well-studied active ingredient that supports the repair of skin structures. The high fat content seals the scar in a similar way to silicone oils.

But a scar cream can do more…

In scar care choosing the right products is very important. Active ingredient cosmetics in particular can help to regenerate scar tissue, support it in the complex mechanisms of collagen remodeling and keep it supple. Some ingredients are particularly effective.

Modern scar creams such as Scar Rescue Cream from BEAUTÉ OMAR the concept Nature meets Science! First of all, the purity of the product is the top priority. It makes sense to use valuable, natural ingredients and scientifically based active ingredients.

4. How you can optimally prepare your skin for treatment with active cosmetics

In order to achieve the best possible results in scar care, it is important that you optimally prepare your skin for treatment with active cosmetics. One possible preparation is to thoroughly clean and dry the affected areas. It is also important to ensure that there are no open wounds or infections in the area of the scar.

This helps ensure better absorption of the active ingredients by the tissue. If you have a fresh wound or scar, you should be careful not to wear tight-fitting clothing or put pressure on the affected area.

If you have recently had surgery or therapy, you can also consult your doctor before starting scar care.

Especially with scars in the facial area, it is advisable to choose gentle products and proceed with caution.

Also avoid direct contact with sunlight and always apply sunscreen to the treated area. Intense sun exposure should be avoided for at least 6 weeks.

5. Scar care routine to support the healing of fresh scars with the help of active cosmetics

If you have fresh scars, it is important to care for them properly from the start to support optimal healing.

  1. After cleansing your skin, use a scar care product sparingly. The high-quality scar creams are very effective, so very little product is often needed.
  2. Massage the scar cream gently in circular movements. Do not put clothing over it until the product has completely absorbed.
  3. Repeat the process twice a day for several months.
  4. Scar care requires long-term therapy.

There are various methods and products that are particularly suitable for caring for scars. Some of these are specifically designed to regenerate and strengthen scar tissue and reduce inflammation. These products include, for example, creams or gels with high-quality ingredients such as collagen

r hyaluronic acid.

6. Effective treatment approaches for old, already healed scars using specific active ingredients

If you are concerned with the topic of scar care, you should not ignore the treatment of already healed scars. Even old scars can benefit from targeted care. Specific active ingredients are particularly effective in regenerating and smoothing scar tissue. It is important to be patient – because old scars often require more time and continuous use of the products. Some of the most effective active ingredients for treating old scars are retinol, vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids (AHA).

These ingredients promote cell renewal and improve tissue elasticity. In addition, it is recommended to use products with moisturizing properties to make the scarred tissue more supple.

For old scars, regular massage can help to make the scar tissue softer and more flexible. a skin oil is ideal for this. Jasmine oil, for example, provides a lot of moisture but nourishes intensively and soothes the scar. However, if you want to approach it simply and pragmatically, pure, high-quality olive oil or coconut oil is also suitable for a scar massage.

These should be carried out gently in circular movements for a few minutes twice a day. This loosens adhesions in the deep layers of the scar and promotes blood circulation in the scar.

7. Scar care in summer

Sun protection plays an important role in the long-term care of scars. UV rays can damage tissue and cause discoloration or further damage. Therefore, suitable sun protection should always be applied – especially in summer or when you are outside for a long time. A caesarean section scar, for example, should be well protected from the sun by wearing bikini bottoms and regular scar care plus UV protection.

Last but not least, we should be aware that every person reacts differently to treatments – what worked for one person does not necessarily work for you! It is therefore often worth consulting a specialist such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon!
