There are many different factors that can lead to scarring. This includes leftover scars from teenage acne, surgical procedures, burns or other accidental injuries. However they originated, scars can be terribly unsightly and those affected typically wish they were less noticeable.
Development of Scars
When skin is wounded and the skin is broken in some way or another, part of the natural healing process consists of the body producing extra collagen, a protein vital to skin reproduction. This collagen then builds up around the damaged tissue area, assisting in the healing and strengthening of the wound.
For approximately three months or so, new collagen continually forms and, as blood supply increases, causes the developing scar to become red, lumpy and raised. Gradually, collagen at the wound site breaks down and blood supply reduces. As a result, the scar slowly gets paler, softer and smoother. Unless steps are taken to reduce scars, they are usually permanent, although they will continue to fade slightly for up to around two years.
Revitol Scar Cream Ingredients
Revitol scar cream is especially formulated from natural ingredients to assist and speed this natural healing and fading process.
The four main ingredients of Revitol scar cream - which are mainly responsible for the reduction/ removal of scars - include:
- Copper Peptide
Here is what each of these ingredients does within the Revitol best scar cream treatment.
Hydroquinone - The central component of the cream, Hydroquinone, is predominantly responsible for lightening darkened skin cells. Known to affect an array of marks in addition to scars - including dark and age spots, marks caused by varying hormone therapies and stretch marks, Hydroquinone makes it possible to apply this cream without unpleasant side effects.
Retinol - A derivative of Vitamin A, Retinol has a unique molecular structure allowing it to sink deep into even the lowest skin layers. Providing the body with vital nutrients from within these deep skin layers, Retinol improves skin hydration levels, complexion, tone and colour.
Dimethylaminoethanol - Produced naturally within the human brain, Dimethylaminoethanol if also found in anchovies, sardines, and salmon and other fish. It is included in the Revitol scar cream formula, because it boosts natural production of a chemical known as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is not only crucial for proper brain function, but also plays an important part in assisting the brain in dealing with stress. This then helps to control development of wrinkles, fine lines and various other age/ stress related marks.
Copper Peptide - One of the most effective elements for skin regeneration, Copper Peptide has been attributed by many studies with high effectiveness in the promotion of collagen and elastin production. In addition to promoting the production of these to crucial elements of healthy skin, this ingredient also provides antioxidant effects.
Glycosaminoglycans production is also promoted by this ingredient, which - besides Vitamin C - is brilliant for penetration into the lowest skin layers. Clinical research/ studies have revealed that varying enzymes dependent on copper can greatly benefit inherent tissue growing/ building processes within the body.
In essence, Revitol scar cream assists the body's own natural healing and skin forming processes, while lightening darkened scar tissue enough to make existing scars fade more and subsequently become almost invisible.
