Scars form as a result of the dermis layer of the skin being damaged in some way on a person. The human body creates new collagen fibers to repair the damage and this often results in a scar. While almost every person will get a scar at some point in their life, Medscar.com, a Los Angeles based website aims to help the public avoid, heal and lessen scars in the future.
According to the senior editor of Medscar.com, “One of the main goals of the website is to make the medical world of scars easy to understand while also providing important information about the treatment and prevention of scars. Our articles cover why scars form, the depth and severity of some scars and the latest news about treatment options. We want to give our readers as much information as possible so they can make the correct decision when it comes to treating their scars.”
The expanded article database covers more than scars that result from accidents. The senior editor went on to say “scars can even be the result of acne as a child or an adult. We detail the various ways to treat, as well as cover up, the scars that happen thanks to acne. Some scars also appear after plastic surgery and patients don’t have to simply live with them anymore. We explain in detail how laser therapy and creams can help reduce or eliminate scars that come into existence as a side effect of surgery.
One other aspect of having scars that the website explores is the psychological impact of scars on patients. The senior editor states that “many people are ashamed of their scars and even try to hide them from others. A number of our newer articles focus on this aspect of having scars and highlights ways that having scars can actually inspire others to talk about the experience that led to them getting the scar. The psychological toll scars take on some patients is an issue that needs to be addressed and put out in the open so everyone will feel free to discuss the impact scars have on their lives.”
Medscar.com plans to grow its article database in 2017. According to the senior editor, the continuing changes and improvements in the treatment of scars is a regular topic of discussion in the medical community. The website plans to include future updates on scar treatments whether they are currently being practiced or are still in the research stage.
Medscar.com aims to be the number one resource for issues and information related to scar treatments for both current and future patients.
