Scars spoil our look. Whatever makeup or skin treatment we do, scars can be barely hidden. Deep scars and raised scars are a big problem to hide. Treating them at the doctor’s place may be a costly procedure also involving time and pain. What should one do? As far as deep scars are concerned, we have to learn to live with them unless we are ready to go to a doctor and get them treated. For not very deep scars there is hope with Vitamin C topically. Let us find out more.
Scars- what are they?
Let us find out more only about mildly deep scars. These scars are healed skin lesions. The only difference is that some collagen is missing from the bottom of the scar. It, therefore, looks depressed. You can get this collagen refilled with an injection at regular intervals or try to use Vitamin C and find out if you are getting satisfactory results.
Vitamin C – What does it do?
Vitamin C encourages the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. With more collagen and elastin, the skin looks healthy, young and the scars don’t look that prominent. Along with this Vitamin C also helps us in other ways. Vitamin C is a very good antioxidant. Vitamin C kills free radicals. Free radicals damage our body and cause rapid aging. Vitamin C neutralizes these free radicals and keeps the skin healthy. Vitamin C also helps in sun protection. With Vitamin C, sunburn damage reduces considerably.
Vitamin C topicals
Please consult your doctor about vitamin C topical formulations. Vitamin C is very unstable and your doctor will guide you best about which brand to use. Your doctor will also guide you about your scar concerns and how Vitamin C will help. Please remember that the application of Vitamin C only for its anti-oxidant properties is a great benefit.
