To better understand scar removal, it is important to understand what scars are and how they are formed. Scars form as a direct result of injury to our skin, and in particular the vital Dermis layer . This is the middle layer of skin between the epidermis (the layer we see) and the subcutaneous (the layer we hope not to see). When damage to the skin occurs, your body produces new collagen fibres and skin tissue so that it quickly mends itself.
When the wound has finished healing, a scar is often formed. Your skin has healed to the degree that your body is sealed to the environment, but perhaps not to a cosmetic level – which is why scar reduction procedures and treatments are so sought after.
QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin have in common?
ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your body would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Using a Scientia Derma Roller offers nature a helping hand by encouraging collagen production in the skin, which helps prevent or reverse their formation.
We can live with scarring; it doesn’t hurt and for the majority of the time, it doesn’t impact on our daily lives. But it can be unsightly; many people wish they didn’t have to live with it and want to know more about removing scars and what treatment for scars options are available. Highly visible scars can also affect your self image and confidence, and when that happens, finding the best way of removing scars becomes much more important.
Undoubtedly, the Scientia Derma Roller helps with the removal of scars and can help you improve the appearance of your scars. Firstly however, let us explain what scars are so that you can understand how they are formed, which in turn will show how the Scientia Derma Roller can be used as a scar remover.
Scars are areas of the skin where the process of healing has created a layer of fibrous tissue which is of reduced quality to that which it has replaced. When damage occurs, the cut in the skin is repaired naturally. The most immediate form of repair is the clotting of blood around the wound. This is often followed by coagulation (which creates a scab) and then the Dermis layer begins the formation of collagen fibres which are the building blocks of skin.
The tissue of skin which has been created is not identical to that which it has replaced. The body’s prime concern is to heal and repair – it is not concerned with how it looks. The layer of skin which forms from the new layer of collagen is thinner, contains no new sweat glands or hair follicles and can often be discoloured.
Scars are formed and healed in the Dermis layer of skin; the layer which is responsible for the production of collagen. Most scars look depressed, like valleys in the skin. These most common of scars are referred to as Atrophic and are shown below.
Scar Tissue – Hypertrophic Scar
Occasionally, our body’s repair mechanisms result in scars which are irregular from normal scar tissue. Hypertrophic, and the far more serious Keloid scars, are the result of the over production of collagen, causing raised lumps on the skin. Although treatments do exist for these particular types of scar, the Scientia Derma Roller is not suitable for treating scars of this type.
Who is the Scientia Derma-Roller For?
The Scientia Derma Roller is ideal for those who wish to:
- Improve the appearance of Atrophic scars (not Hypertrophic
- Treat scars at home
- Get rid of scars inexpensively
- Get help to remove scars
- Avoid trauma to the epidermis layer of skin
The types of scarring which can be treated include chicken pox scars, ice pick scars, appendectomy scars, burn scars, surgery or surgical scars, C-Section scarring, and tummy tuck scar removal.
Treatment of Scars & How it Works
As explained above, scars are the result of a reduced level of collagen in the Dermis layer of skin. The collagen fibres which were produced in repairing the wound were set off by the trauma occurring in this middle layer. The collagen formation ceased after the wound had healed but before a cosmetic level of repair was achieved.
What the Scientia Derma Roller does to help with the removal of scar tissue, is create a painless microscopic trauma to the same area of skin, promoting additional collagen growth – which gradually stimulates the skin’s return to a normal composition. The area may still be void of hair follicles and sweat glands, but the skin will be thicker, have less pronounced discolouration and will look considerably better.
What it is effectively doing is renewing or extending the healing process which happens naturally within the skin. The Scientia Derma Roller’s extension of this healing process means that the scar tissue repairs itself to a state which has a look and feel which matches the skin around it.
Unlike many other treatments that claim to remove scar tissue, no cosmetically noticeable damage is caused to the epidermis and the treatment can be continually carried out without concern for additional cost of repeated and expensive clinical visits. It is also one of the only methods that gets rid of scars without the need for lengthy recuperation periods.
