How To Get Rid Of Blepharoplasty Scars
If you are looking for a more youthful appearance or just want to get rid of that constant tired look around your eyes, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. This surgery provides cosmetic corrections by removing bags around the eyes and reducing puffiness. It is usually an outpatient procedure with relatively shorter recovery times than other types of surgeries.
What is Blepharoplasty Surgery?
Blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves making small incisions to modify the skin and fat content in the area surrounding the eyes. Blepharoplasty can correct structural issues with the eyelids that may impair vision by removing excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids. For example, some patients suffer from decreased visibility due to drooping upper eyelids.
What Does the Recovery Process Look Like?
Recovery time will vary for each individual; it depends on how your body responds to the surgery. For a safe and quick recovery, be sure to follow all of your post-surgery guidelines prescribed by your doctor.
According to Dr. Harun Zekirovski at HZ Plastic Surgery, “it's normal to experience swelling, bruising, or dry eyes following your procedure, but this will subside shortly.” Most of these inconveniences decrease over time by merely following your post-surgery recommendations; however, scarring can be permanent.
Scarring is a typical result of the healing process, and each patient’s experience will be unique. Where incisions are made during surgery, raised or wide scar tissue may develop due to excess collagen in the skin. Without intervention, this scarring can become permanent. Although the scarring is not harmful, it may not be desirable on locations of the body that are highly visible.
Getting Rid Of Blepharoplasty Scarring
Thankfully, getting rid of blepharoplasty scarring is possible. Here at Scintera, we’ve designed a delicate scar gel that is colorless, light, easy to apply to the face. This product will not cause acne or skin irritations. Similar to our silicone sheeting, our gel works by reducing water loss from the skin and reducing excess collagen build-up. Excess collagen is the main culprit for those unsightly raised and ridged scars we wish to avoid on our face and other visible areas of the body.
Bruising and swelling generally lessen slowly in about 10 to 14 days. Scars from the surgical cuts may take months to fade. That’s where ScarSil Scar Gel comes in. It shortens the time it takes for your scar to fade. When the scar has faded you can use Scar Esthetique Scar Crème to even out skin tone and moisturise the eyelids. Take care to protect your delicate eyelid skin from sun exposure. For that we have Rejuvaskin Mineral Facial Sunscreen.
Using ScarSil For Scarring
Used as a primary treatment method after surgery, ScarSil effectively and discreetly diminishes the appearance of scarring while relieving the itching and discomfort that comes with the healing process. Key ingredients such as Vitamin C, Squalane, and Emu Oil give the gel its smooth texture and improve its performance by soothing the skin and reducing discomfort.
ScarSil Silicone Scar Gel is also transparent, odor-free, and water-resistant. This transparency makes ScarSil extremely suitable for highly visible areas like the face and allows you to put your best face forward in confidence.
ScarSil Silicone Scar Gel softens and flattens raised scars. The silicone gel dries quickly forming a clear layer of silicone over your scar. This barrier limits collagen production to help minimize and prevent problem scarring. It’s best for scars less than two years old. ScarSil is effective for surgical scars, keloids, hypertrophic scars, facial scars, paediatric scars, and more.
Medical professionals recommend ScarSil Silicone Scar Gel in over 80 countries around the world. The scar gel is 97% liquid silicone, the number one ingredient for scars. It’s gentle, clean formula is safe and effective for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Since it is easy to use and discreet, this gel is the best product for facial scars and paediatric scars.
ScarSil is more than silicone. It also contains Vitamin C, Squalane, and Emu Oil which help improve your experience using the product and the result for your scar. These essential ingredients help relieve itchiness and discomfort associated with your scar. They also provide additional scar healing benefits.
