Scar removal cream may or may not help in treating the affects of mild to medium grade scars, regardless of whether or not it was an over the counter cream or one prescribed by a doctor. Most work by using exfoliation as the key to causing the old layers of skin to be removed and then replaced with new skin growth. However, not every product works on every part of your skin. In fact, some of these creams can only be utilized on your body, neck or face, leaving a great deal of uncertainty about what to use on parts that are not included in these areas.
It is no surprise that many such creams contain varied components, differing greatly from each other and thus having different levels of effects. That is why it is important to understand which ingredients are included and what they do, to prevent spending money on something that would never have helped get rid of your scars in the first place or might cause you to have allergic reaction to some of the ingredients. The only way to really tell is to rub in a tiny portion into your skin, preferably on the back of your wrist to see if you have a reaction. If you do then you need to consult with a dermatologist to find out what ingredients are causing the issues and thus aid you in finding the right product for you.
But how does each scar removal cream compare to the others out there? If you are looking for something to treat keloid types of scars, the best products to get include SCARprin, Dermatix Ultra and Talsyn-Cl. If you need something that contains silicon and thus rehydrates your skin, many people prefer SCARprin, Dermatix Ultra, Kelp-Cote, Prefer On, Scar Esthetique, Scar Zone, Scar Fade, Cimeosil and Scar Guard. If you are looking for something recommended to reduce the appearance of surgical scars, most doctors suggest SCARprin, Dermatix Ultra and Talsyn-Cl. The most recommended one for assisting with diminishing old and new scars is SCARprin, but if you are working on burn type scars, the best products appear to be SCARprin, Dermatix Ultra and Talsyn-Cl.
