I have scarring all over my body. Yes I have fallen off a lot. Its is the hazard of the hobby. I actually say if I'm not flying, I'm not trying. But we all get scars. wether like me its from sports or from your over friendly dog jumping up at you. To your toddler who is going though the biting and scratching stage. In life scarring is inevitable but it does not need to be permanent. Thankfully. I have done my research and I am going to be attending 23md.co.uk as they are know to be the best at permanent scar removal in the uk. More about that below.
Three of my biggest scars are,
when I was about 11 years old. I decided to make popcorn. I know how can this go so wrong. Well, we had no sugar in the cupboard. So decided to heat syrup on the stove. You can imagine an 11-year-old plus boiling syrup ended in me completely bring my right hand. It was pretty much all burnt. It was a mess for a month and now I am left with scarring to the back of the hand.
This one is due to mountain biking. I decided to get some very beefy Flat pedal which has very aggressive pins to keep your feet on the pedal. Well, let me tell you if you slip and fall. These will go straight into your shin. I have a nice big scar on my left leg. This making wearing skirts and pretty dresses a thing of the past.
The chickenpox scars. So Like every child, I contracted chicken pox. Unlike most children, I was a teenager and should have known better than to pick at them. Fast forward to now I still have a big scar on my eyebrow it is so annoying. It is in the most obvious place on my face and is a nightmare when trying to get my brows done. Its time for you to disappear. Mr Pox
These are the reason I am looking into scar removal. I want to feel confident again in my clothes.
What is scarring?
A scar is the result of an injury or wounds healing. There are many different types of scarring.
Fine line cars
These are the most common scars. This is normally a minor cut or graze. This will gradually heal to a faint line. This is also what surgery scarring will look like. Normally These take two years to get to the there final stage of healing but you are left with a faint line.
This is where to there is excessive growth of tissue at the site of the trauma. These tend to be raised scars and are due to excess collagen at the sight of impact. These can cause restricted movement.
These again are the result of too much collagen. These produce a lot less than Keloid scars. Hypertrophic scars don't extend past the wound area. These can continue to thicken for up to six months from the trauma. These will fade but can take years to do so.
Sunken or pitted Scars
These tend to be the result of acne and chicken pox. These tend to be as the name suggest sunken.
These are the result of burns.
