Once a wart is removed there’s a good chance that it left behind an unsightly scar. Ridding yourself of these scars are rather simple, if you follow certain guidelines. The availability to remove these scars are aplenty, but which one should you opt for? Each scar is characterized by a number of factors such as depth, severity and so on. Depending on these factors, the procedure to deal with them should be considered. This article will share several methods on how to get rid of wart scars
Once the wart is long gone, it leaves behind a seemingly indomitable scar, that at first, appears to be impossible to get rid of. On consulting a dermatologist, you will be presented with the following options:
Scar Revision History
This procedure entails removal of the scar surgically. The loose ends of the skin are rejoined and the resultant is that wider scars become narrow, or larger scars become smaller. It depends on the size of the scar. Following up this procedure results in scar free skin.
This procedure employs the use of an electrical dermabrasion machine or a special wire brush to remove the upper layers of the skin. After dermabrasion is carried out, the scars are essentially removed, or appear very faint.
In this method of skin grafting, normal portions of skin are used to replace the scarred skin, so that the marks no longer persist.
Skin Flap Surgery
This technique is used for areas of skin widely affected by a scar. Flaps of skin, by which we mean, fat tissues and the underlying nerves are removed from a healthy portion of the body. This is used in place of the damaged skin.
Trichloroacetic Acid Chemical Peel
Trichloroacetic Acid is essentially a skin peeling agent which is used on lesions such as warts and scars. This is highly corrosive chemical and must be used under the supervision of an experienced physician. It is a deliquescent substance with a strong pungent odor. It has the ability to penetrate through body tissues, corroding its surface. When applied on the scar it dissolves the scarred skin, leaving you with scar free skin. TCA tends to leave a burning sensation on the skin, which if persists, should be discontinued. Sensitive skin is often damaged by TCA, hence consultation with an expert is required.
Scar Removal Creams
Over the counter scar removal creams are available, if TCA is too harsh on the skin. Dermefface FX7 is a topical scar cream which comprises of 7 active ingredients, 10 antioxidants and 5 moisturizing agents. This not only fades scars away, but also helps in the regeneration of skin. It works on each layer of tissue, penetrating all the way to the root of the scar. As it works on the underlying scar tissue, it revitalises the damaged skin giving birth to by far the most hassle free option to rid yourself of scars left behind by warts. The active ingredients include Allantoin, HRGP Glycopeptides, Niacinamide, D-Panthenol and Pentavitin.
Quick ways to get rid of scars left behind by warts are right around the corner. You just need to see all the options available and then go with the one which suits you the best.
