How Scars Affect People

How Scars Affect People

Scars come in all shapes and sizes and can be caused from accidents, surgeries, and even acne. While scars leave a physical mark on the body, they can also leave an emotional or psychological mark on a person. Scars can negatively affect body image and self-confidence, especially if the scar is on an exposed part of the body.

The Impact Scars May Have

While scars have long been stigmatized as unsightly, unwanted, and un-attractive features on the body, they can often slightly or severely impact an individual's confidence and body image. A person may feel the need to constantly keep the scar covered with clothing at all times, even when inconvenient, and cover the scar with cosmetics. They may even go out of their way to avoid situations where the scar may be visible, or choose to forego activities entirely. 

Emotionally, one can potentially be more prone to anxiety, depression, or feelings of shame if their scar diminishes their self-image greatly enough. Similar to how severe acne can affect a person's socialization, scars can also create a strain on communication and a decrease in social interactions.

There are several routes that can be taken to help reduce the appearance of an unwanted scar, such as surgery, microneedling or laser treatments, steroid injections, fillers, and of course topical treatments such as scar creams or scar strips.

How Skinuva® Scar Can Help Improve an Unwanted Scar

Skinuva® Scar is the most advanced scar cream on the market. Backed by 5 published clinical studies that prove its safety and efficacy, Skinuva Scar includes highly selective synthetic Growth Factors and other natural, clinically proven ingredients. 

Growth Factors help reduce redness, pigmentation, and thickening of the skin and also help promote the right type of collagen production needed for scarless healing. Along with Silicone, Centella Asiatica, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and Aloe Vera, these selective Growth Factors give Skinuva Scar an edge above the competition.

While Skinuva Scar works best on younger scars less than 1 year old, it may help improve the appearance of older scars as well. When applied twice daily, morning and night, it has been shown to be nearly 2 times more effective than regular, 100% silicone cream.*
