Scar Treatment - Remove Scars Through Herbal Ways

Scars are the fibrous tissue formed on the skin in order to repair broken tissue. When there is an injury, the skin produces more cells in order to re-grow the punctured skin. This tissue is known as a scar.

A scar is easily visible because the cells that go in making up the scar are of lesser quality than the original cells. For example, the scars on the skin are not able to grow any hair since they have no hair follicles. Also they are lesser-resistant to UV radiation.

It is a fact that scars can never be completely healed. There are several medical and cosmetic methods to cover up scars, but none of them can claim to remove a scar completely. The scar can be masked by some methods, like laser surgery, steroid injections, dermabrasion and radio therapy, but none of these methods can remove the scar fully. On the contrary, there might be permanent injury to the skin. On the other hand, Ayurveda deals in some safe herbal methods to remove scars. These methods are generally simple home remedies, and they have no side-effects at all. You can try out these methods before going in for complicated surgical procedures.

Useful Herbs in the Treatment of Scars

- Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)

Aloe vera is a good home remedy for the treatment of residual scars. Its juice acts as natural bleach. Its juice is applied to the scars, which then slowly reduce and vanish.

- Cucumber (Curcumis sativus)

The cool cucumber helps in the removal of scar tissues also. A paste is made of the cucumber and is applied directly onto the scars. This helps the scars to smoothen out after a few applications left overnight.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    has anyone ever had a "c-section scar removal with a hysterectomy?"?
    My doctor (actually 3 dr's) have recommended I have a hysterectomy, however one suggested that I have the c-section removed as it possibly contains endometriosis within the skin tissue (causing the pain I have been experiencing the last 4 years that no one has been able to pinpoint the cause of) .....he is suggesting to "cut out" the c-section scar and do an open hysterectomy. I cannot find anything online about this type of procedure being done and I am a little wary of this. Any suggestions??????

    • ANSWER:
      Removing your c section scar only involves removing a small part of the sking containing the scar and underlying tissue. Many obstetricians will remove an old scar with the next c section for cosmetic reasons if the previous one left an unpleasing scar. Don't sweat it.

  2. QUESTION:
    because of scar tissue removal of ovary done with open surgergy, now gallbladder will i have the same problem?
    i previously had 2 emergency c-sections and a tubal ligation. just worried there is such a differnce in recovery time from open surgery to laproscopy

    • ANSWER:
      I had my gallbladder removed laparscopically and I was up and about the next day and even sat through a movie at the movie theater. The recovery time is much faster. It just sort of feels like you have been punched in the stomach.

  3. QUESTION:
    Right Upper Quadrant Pain after gall bladder removal - scar tissue??
    I had my gallbladder removed 3+ yrs ago, long term history of elevated liver enzymes not constant but several times over 10+ yrs with no found cause. I have been having pain for months, off and on. Recently had ultrasound, CT, MRI, all normal. I am wondering if anyone else is still having pain in that area after having the gall bladder removed?

    I have a big problem with scarring internally so I am wondering if my gall bladder surgery left scar tissue behind that is now causing problems. I recently had an ovarian cyst removed and they couldn't get to the ovary because of the scar tissue left from three c-sections. They told me I have "massive amounts" of scar tissue left in my lower abdomen so it got me thinking about the RUQ pain.

    I see the GI specialist in a couple more weeks but this has been going on for a while and I am curious if anyone else has the same problem.

    • ANSWER:
      I had my gallbladder removed due to attacks. Four months later I had exact same symptoms as my previous attacks. After many visits to the ER I was finally turning jaundice from elevated liver enzymes. At every ER visit they did x-rays and cat scan, and found nothing each and every time. I had to be admitted to hospital and had an emergency ERCP. Even with the ERCP procedure they kinda x-ray it, they still didn't see a thing. Once they cut open the sphinter of oddi they said several stone fragments and sludge came out. About 2 weeks later I had to have this done again and they found more sludge.
      You could possibly have a stone causing the pain, or even like you mentioned scar tissue. If you haven't seen a good GI doctor, I really suggest you do. Make sure it is one that can perform ERCP or MRCP. The latter is I believe more exploratory. You can look up each and find out more.
      Hope this helps!
