ScarFace No More: The Art of ScarFix

ScarFix Scars may be something that are cool to show off to your friends on the playground when you’re 8 years old or if you’re a character out of a novel like Frankenstein, however, if you are just an average adult, and you have scars, then you are likely going to want to do everything that you can in order to help minimize the appearance of scars. Although there are topical over-the-counter creams that claim to help get rid of the appearance of scars, nothing will be quite as effective as a state-of-the-art scar treatment like the one that Dr. Larry Weinstein created: ScarFix. Read on to learn more.

What is a Scar?
Before you learn about what ScarFix is, it’s important for you to understand what a scar is and the difference between different types of scars. A scar is an area of the skin where a burn, wound, or sore has not yet healed properly. There are a few different types of scars including hypertrophic scars, keloids, and contractures.

  • Hypertrophic Scars: These types of scars are typically raised, reddened, hyperpigmented, and can even be uncomfortable.
  • Keloids: These scars are larger hypertrophic scars that can cause irritation due to itchiness and inflammation.
  • Contractures: These types of scars are so damaging that they can restrict your movement due to the severity of scarring underneath the skin.

What is ScarFix?
ScarFix involves a multi-step procedure to help get rid of the scar itself. By cleaning the wound and removing any bacteria or contaminants that may have built up, your wound has a better chance to heal. Once it is cleaned, the removal of the edges of the wound will be removed by using an atraumatic technique which will help to create less trauma to the tissue, which equates to less scarring further down the line.

Let’s face it, getting your scar removed by the inventor himself is pretty amazing— plus, you’ll know that you are in the best hands possible. If you would like to learn more about ScarFix or other scar revision treatment options, contact Dr. Larry Weinstein’s office today!
