Our skin forms a protective barrier from the environment, so it’s not uncommon for scars to form on the skin as a result of injury. Anything from a simple scratch to an acne pimple can cause a scar to form on the face or body. With the advent of new topical creams, scars are much easier to treat than they’ve ever been.
If you have one of the two basic types of scars (hypertrophic and hyperpigmented), Plato’s Medicinals has launched a new set of topical dermatologic creams that can help smooth out thick scars or lighten existing dark scars.
One of the most common types of scars is known as a hypertrophic scar, which basically describes a scar that has become thick, wide, and slightly raised. Surgical scars and traumatic scars are likely to become hypertrophic if they are not carefully treated after injury. Most people have seen hypertrophic scars form on the skin as a result of a break in the skin, commonly associated with a surgical procedure or a laceration or cut in the skin.
Plato’s Scar Serum contains a proprietary combination of polysiloxanes which can help soften, soothe, and improve the appearance of scars that are associated with skin trauma, surgery, wounds, or burns. The Scar Serum is ideal for delicate skin in the healing phase of scar formation. Ideal for post-procedure scar care and to help maintain results once a scar is maturing. Plato’s Scar Serum glides onto the skin surface and is barely visible as it integrates into the skin. Massage twice daily into a new or pre-existing scar.
Acne pimples and light burns on the skin are notorious for inciting dark discoloration in the skin. If you have olive toned skin, you are probably aware of the skin darkening that begins once a pimple or skin injury has occurred. Dermatologists label the discoloration PIH, or post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation. PIH can occur after any type of skin injury, and worsens with sun exposure. If you are prone to pigmentation, PIH can often develop after laser treatments, waxing, ingrown hairs, and light burns or scratches in the skin.
Plato’s Medicinals Dark Scar Corrector is formulated to reduce the appearance of scar discoloration and pigmentation associated with acne, ingrown hairs, scratches in the skin, or any type of skin injury. The benefits of Plato’s Dark Scar Corrector stem from natural skin lighteners and four active sunblocks that help reduce existing pigmentation and prevent sun-related pigmentation from developing. Use the Dark Scar Corrector twice daily by applying a thin coat of the product onto the discolored scar and massaging gently into the skin. If you are using both the Scar Serum and Dark Scar Corrector, apply the Dark Scar Corrector first and then apply Scar Serum on top.
