Scar Treatment

Vitamin E is the most recommended natural treatment for scars. Just pop a vitamin E capsule and apply it topically to the scar tissue - some people notice improvement in a month or so, especially with relatively recent scars. Vitamin A helps generate new skin, vitamin C is essential for making collagen, selenium can minimize tissue damage and zinc can help heal wounds - all of these should be taken at the time of injury to accelerate healing and prevent excessive scar tissue from forming in the first place. Aloe vera and tea tree oil are some herbal treatments for scars. Talk to your dermatologist about gel patches that apply continuous pressure to raised scars and can help minimize their appearance over time.
