Types of Scars
- Scars are areas of fibrous tissue (fibrosis) that results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body.
- If a wound becomes covered with epithelial tissue within two weeks, minimal collagen will be deposited and no scar will form. Generally, if a wound takes longer than three to four weeks to become covered, a scar will form.
- Scar tissue is exactly the same protein (collagen) as the tissue that it replaces.
- In fibrosis the collagen cross-links and forms an alignment in a single direction instead of a random basket weave formation of the collagen fibers found in normal tissue.
HENBANE GREEN OIL FOR SCAR TREATMENT
Kelosoft is effective yet gentle plant-based ointment with the full power of henbane-derived green oil. Regular massaging with Kelosoft reduces reddening; tissue becomes softer and bulging scars are made smoother. Several months are needed to achieve optimal results however, on average, improvements can be seen within the first week. Kelosoft should be massaged into the scar with the fingertip for 2-3 minutes every evening.
