In a world that is obsessed with appearance, the standard of beauty is difficult to match. Women are especially hard on themselves when it comes to their appearance. Plastic surgery statistics are at an all-time high, and this beauty obsession is to blame Copy: Women scour the covers of magazines, glorify actresses and models, and wish for a body like their idols. What women may not know is that their skin and emotional health are directly related. When a woman is upset about her appearance or skin, this emotion has the potential to wreak havoc on the mind.Probably one of the most upsetting problems is a scar, be it on a visible or covered part of the body. Scars can cause anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder in women, all of which have the potential to severely affect a woman psychologically. Causes of scars Scars can result from accidents, diseases, skin conditions such as acne or from surgeries and are a natural part of the body’s healing process. A scar results from the biologic process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues.
Most wounds, except for very minor ones, result in some degree of scarring. Any injury beyond the body’s repair mechanism is filled by raw collagen and is called a scar. While scars cannot be cured, most of them can be made to merge with surrounding skin to an extent of 30 to 100%, thanks to revolutionary technologies. Some scars can have a sunken or pitted appearance. This kind of scarring occurs when underlying structures supporting the skin like fat or muscle are lost. Some surgical scars have this appearance, as do some scars from acne.Scars also can appear as stretched skin. Such scars result when the skin stretches rapidly as in growth spurts or during pregnancy. In addition, this type of scar can occur when the skin is under tension like near a joint, during the healing process.
SkinCity’s scar war Dr. NiteenDhepe, Medical Director, Skin City says “Most scars can be made to merge with the surrounding skin to an extent of 30 to 100%, thanks to technologies like Ultra Pulse Scaar FX, Deep FX, Active FX, Pixel and DYE VL. All scars are now well treated with a holistic combination approach. Lasers like Scaar FX and our signature Derma Transport are Skin City’s unique weapons in the ‘Scar War’.” The scar improvement in burn and hypertrophic scars is measured according to four parameters – thickness, elasticity (flexibility), surface & textural regularity and color – to matchwith the surrounding skin. The ScaarFx – Derma Transport Combination achieves 60 to 100% improvement in all four parameters. Skin City’s revolutionary scar research has been presented in six International conferences through nine research papers and Skin City is now exploring avenues to use this knowhow to treat acid burn victims.
