(AND HOW TO SPOT IF SOMETHING’S WRONG)

Article Read Duration 5 dk. okuma

Fresh scars need special care to ensure an optimal result. To look after yours, follow a few simple steps:

  • Gently clean your scar daily with a cleansing gel designed to optimise the scarring process
  • Avoid stretching the skin as this can make the scar wider or “pop your stitches”
  • Make sure you get your stitches out on time
  • Use a cream suitable to be applied on scars to massage at least once a day
  • Protect your scar with very high SPF
  • Seek medical attention in certain situations: heavy bleeding, oozing pus, spreading redness, or excessive pain.
