Emotional impact of scarring

Scars often have a stronger impact on women

A whirl of emotions can develop around a scar: Uncertainty, fear, anger, hopelessness. Scars can start to restrict daily life and damage confidence.

Insecurity when the scar is visible to others

Fear that a fresh scar could become infected

Anger about the cause of the scar

Worry about the loss of beauty

Pain both physical and emotional

Feelings of guilt about having allowed the injury to happen

Disgust when seeing or touching the scar

Sadness about the limits the scar places on everyday life

The less visible a scar is, the easier it is to live with. For best possible results, start treatment with Contractubex® as soon as the wound is closed or the stitches are removed.

That way your scar can be so discreet you will hardly notice it – and neither will anyone else.
