Scars on the soul

Scars can also affect the way you feel

Scars are not just signs of physical injury. Particularly unsightly scars can have a serious effect on emotional well-being. Scars on the face, neck or other clearly visible places may cause feelings of unattractiveness or shame and lower self-esteem.

Many studies have confirmed that scars have a strong psychological impact. Interviews with 1,480 people in Germany, Russia, Mexico and the USA show that emotions and behaviours caused by scars are very similar all around the world.*

Scars tend to be more of a problem for women than for men. On men, they can even seem manly and attractive. Women with scars often feel a loss of attractiveness and femininity.

Scars can restrict quality of life in all sorts of ways.

Limits on private life:

  • In intimate situations
  • When seeing friends
  • In front of the mirror

Limits on public activity:

  • In the sauna
  • On the beach
  • On a night out

Contractubex® can help scars to heal better and be much less visible – enabling you to forget about your scar, and what caused it.
