Flawless Healing When Scar's The Limit

Health and beauty are gifts from nature. Beauty from within is essential, but taking care of our outside appearance is also important.

As our skin is what the world sees of us, we all want our skin to look good. If your skin is clear and healthy looking, it makes you feel good about yourself. For most people, effective skin care is actually a pretty simple process.

But having scars makes people very conscious. Scars are unsightly things that should be hidden or removed as much as possible.
Dr. Hector M. Santos, Jr.

Even small injuries can leave unsightly scars. Severe scalding can easily lead to lasting scars. A Caesarean section is a surgical procedure that leaves a scar. pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Acne is not a serious health threat, but it can cause scars.  Acne is the most common skin disease. Even the removal of a birthmark always leaves a wound behind, which can lead to the occurrence of an unsightly scar.

There are emotional and psychological burden experiencing by most people. Scars often have a stronger impact on especially, women.

A whirl of emotions can develop around a scar. 

- Uncertainty, fear, anger, hopelessness. Scars can start to restrict daily life and damage confidence.
- Insecurity when the scar is visible to others
- Fear that a fresh scar could become infected
- Anger about the cause of the scar
- Worry about the loss of beauty
- Pain both physical and emotional
- Feelings of guilt about having allowed the injury to happen
- Disgust when seeing or touching the scar
- Sadness about the limits the scar places on everyday life

Here are the reasons why there are patients who avoid undergoing surgery. Women with scars, particularly, often feel a loss of attractiveness and femininity, associate negative emotions with scars, and feel insecure in their own skin.

Studies have shown that scars can affect a person's physical comfort and functioning, self-acceptance, acceptance by others, social functioning, emotional wellbeing, and confidence in the nature and management of the condition.

When exactly is the right time to start scar treatment? And how long do I have to treat a scar? Early treatment is the best way to prevent scars. Your doctor may suggest over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription drugs. Some acne medicines are put right on the skin. Other medicines are pills that you swallow. The doctor may tell you to use more than one medicine.

For many years, Contractubex has been found to be very effective in treating inauspicious and movement restricting scars.

The gel can be used to treat both recent and old scars caused by a phyical accidents, a burn or scald, an acid burn, a vaccination, acne or operation.

Contractubex is a highly effective treatment for all scar types. It actively promotes the healing process of the skin and reduces scarring from within.

The scar gel with the triple effect:

- Prevents the formation of excessive scar tissue
- Reduces redness, itching and the feeling of tension
- Makes the scar smoother and improves elasticity

For best possible results, start treatment as soon as the wound is closed or the stitches are removed. This ensures that your scar will become so fine that you will hardly see or feel it.

Treatment depends on the scar size, freshness of scar and the conditions of scars etc. Large, hard and old scars may need 3-6 months or even longer treatment. Treatment of scar requries a high degree of persverance and active participation by patient in order to achieve a noticable result.

Every year, over 200 million incisions are made on children and adults worldwide. About 30% of those procedures result in pathologic (hypertrophic or keloidal) scars. If the wound healing is undisturbed, one may end up with a normal "fine line" scar. Unfortunately, alterations in the healing process could result to ugly scarring.

Dr. Hector M. Santos, Jr., currently the president of the Phil. Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon. and his colleagues had the assembly recently held at the Makati Shanrila Hotel. During the talks of Dr. Santos, he said that surgery is only half the battle because patients should continue healing with an effective scar treatment for a successful recovery.

Dr. Santos, Jr., also shared to us during the interview, "scarring could be prevented if a wound is treated at the right time with the right product."

Extract Cepae + Heparin Sodium + Allantoin (Contractubex) has been used to treat scars successfully for over 50 years in over 60 countries. It is regularly recommended by doctors all around the world with its efficacy already proven in numerous clinical studies. Its unique combination of three active ingredients works its way deep into the scar to reduce the mark from within and results to a nearly invisible blemish.
Dr. Hector M. Santos, Jr.
Dr. Santos recommended and stressed that the gel should be applied on a closed and non-infected wound. This is a very effective preventive measure especially for individuals who are prone to developing keloids.

"Start applying about a week after your operation, two to three days after the stitches were removed," he said.

"It is importatnt using Contractubex at the right time," he added. The product is well-tolerated, even when used for long periods, and local adverse reactions are very rare. 

Treatment can be started just days after wound closure, or 8-10 days after an operation.

For old and hard scars, it is recommeded that the scar be covered with Contractubex and a bandage overnight to enhance deep prenatration of the active ingredients.

Dr. Santos said that Contractubex could still be applied on old scars as iit could help improve scar appearance but results are not as good as when applied on fresh scars. Contractubex is more than 75% effective in avoiding having itchy red scars.

Regarding big scars, however, they can be surgically removed and treated with Contractubex to greatly improve how they look.

Fresh scars should never be exposed to direct sunlight. The scar formation process is not yet complete, and the sun's rays may adversely affect the sensitive scar tissue while it is forming.

This scar gel can 
- reduce the size of scars
- reduce the difference in color between the scar and surrounding skin
- prevent excessive scar tissue formation
- improve symptoms such as itching, tension, and pain
- reduce the likelihood of hypertrophic scars or keloids developing.

It is generally used after abrasions, cuts or lacerations; surgeries; burns or scalds; and laser treatments such as tattoo removal.

Whether you're concerned about scarring from a cut, scrape, stitches, or even a small surgical wound or acne, here are the two simple resolutions will ensure successful treatment:

Resolution 1: Use Contractubex as soon as the wound has closed or the stitches have been removed.
