Science of Scar Removal
Science of a Scar
Why do scars have different colors?
New scars are red or purple in color as a result of damaged blood vessels and inflammation. These are hyperpigmented scars. Older scars are white in color. As a result of the initial inflammation and damage to blood vessels and cells loss of pigment-producing cells occurs. Because of the loss of skin pigment the scar becomes hypopigmented (pale). The has skin a great capacity to regenerate itself. Scars are a remaining signs of the skin's attempt to heal itself. While normally the skin is quickly repaired, the new skin can have a different appearance. This is frequently persistent in the form of a scar that don't fade away.
How long does it normally take for scars to fade to their final color?
In general, major scars from surgery or injury take from six to twelve months to fade to their final color.Do some people have a predisposition to develop more prominent scars?
Genetic factors are believed to play a role in the scarring process. For some people scarring may more disfiguring than for others. New treatments have been developed that can help scars fade away.
What causes scars?
Scars are a mark that indicates the skin's attempt to heal itself. When damage to the skin's top layer occurs, cells quickly multiply to form new cells to fill in the gap. When a wound goes deeper into the underlying skin tissue, cells that form collagen are stimulated and they fill in the gap producing abundant fibrous connective tissue. If the density of this new tissue is relatively small, it is usually replaced by normal a skin layer over time. When the mass of new tissue is relatively extensive it is associated to cell damage and the fibrous tissue remains. As a result a persistent scar remains.
Is there any way to change the appearance of scars or make them fade away?
Rejuveness is the leader in treatment options that truly affected the appearance of scars. Our scar treatment effectively makes scars imperceptible or reduces the appearance of scars to a minimum.
Silicone Occlusive Sheeting
Rejuveness is silicone occlusive sheeting that is soft, durable and reusable. It is a medical-grade; pure silicone sheeting that is manufactured in the USA under expert technical supervision.
Rejuveness is a non-invasive medical device that reduces hypertrophic and keloid scars resulting from burns, surgical procedures* and traumatic events. Rejuveness softens smoothes and flattens scars to restore them to a more normal texture and color. When used daily as directed, Rejuveness has the potential to dramatically improve the appearance of both old and new scars. Rejuveness has been clinically proven effective in the management of hypertrophic and keloid scars and relives the burning and itching that is characteristic of scarring disorders. Rejuveness has also shown success in the prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars when applied following surgical procedures*.
The mechanism of action by which the product works involves the productís high affinity for static electricity. An electrostatic field forms between the Rejuveness sheet and the surface area of the skin where the product is applied. The electrostatic pull over a prolonged period of time may be the critical factor in the successful reduction of hypertrophic and keloid scars and the prevention of scarring disorders.
The purpose of this particular submission is to expand the indication for Rejuveness and further define instances in which Rejuveness may be used. In reference to surgical procedures we propose to illustrate examples of surgeries where Rejuveness may have an application. We also move to illustrate the point that Rejuveness has shown efficacy in the prevention of scarring disorders when applied following particular procedures. These particular surgeries are sited in attachment #7 pricing sheet example and are outlined in the indications for use attachment.
