What can I do to get rid of scars?

After being "traumatized" by circumstances (acne, wounds, scrapes, cuts, or burns), your body's largest organ has to restore itself, and scarring is the manifestation of the healing process. Depending on the severity of the scar, treatments vary. The more shallow the scar, the less complicated the remedy. Topical creams or gels recommended by your dermatologist will help heal your skin accordingly. However, the deeper the scar tissue, the more intense and sophisticated your treatment may be, and again, this is to be determined by a trusted dermatologist. Since the treatment of scars encourages the formation of new skin, it's imperative that you shield the affected area from the damaging effects of the sun. Thirty minutes before leaving your house, apply SPF (minimum of 30) on the exposed area.
