Scar Treatments & Intimate Lightening
There are many options for scar treatments today, including over-the-counter remedies and surgical treatments that can help reduce or completely eliminate the appearance of scars on many different places on the body. Since many of these treatments are available, it can be challenging to sort through the options – perhaps you need something a bit stronger than an over-the-counter cream or ointment. Still, you don’t want to undergo surgical procedures to remove the scars and deal with painful and lengthy recovery times. In this case, there is some good news: intimate lightening is another treatment that can help reduce the appearance of scars on the body, and since it is safe, it can be used in a wide variety of different places – not just the intimate areas!
Why Do Scars Form?
There are many reasons that you may have scars – perhaps an injury from childhood, or even a scar such as that from a C-section when giving birth to a baby. No matter the cause, scars are formed when the skin begins to heal after an injury. The size and depth of the injury, as well as the location and type of injury, can all have an effect on the appearance of the scar after the wound heals.
Do Scars Go Away on Their Own?
While scars can fade over time, it is essential to note that they do not completely disappear on their own. Because of this, if the scar is in a location that is visible or if it bothers you, you may have to resort to other treatments for scars, such as the creams and ointments that are available at the pharmacy. Some women opt for plastic surgery, but that doesn’t have to be the only effective remedy. In fact, another option for scar treatment that is gaining in popularity is intimate lightening.
What is Intimate Lightening?
Intimate lightening is a treatment that can drastically reduce or eliminate the appearance of scars, and because of this, it is getting more and more recognition. The procedure is done in the doctor’s office, and while it may require a few treatments (most individuals find that they have great results within three to six treatments).
The intimate lightening procedure utilizes a healthy and safe blend of botanicals to create a solution to apply to darkened areas of the skin, or in this case, scars. The solution works in combination with a laser to lighten the area, thus reducing the appearance of the scars and allowing you to feel more comfortable about yourself. Another bonus? There is no downtime, so you can have your treatment done and go back to your day!
