Patience pays off in scar treatment

Injuries can happen suddenly any given day. And then you’re left with an upsetting ugly scar. Successful scar treatment calls for one thing above all – patience.

We’ve all experienced them: those little accidents that can happen anytime, like falling off your bike, burning yourself on the stove, or cutting yourself while preparing food. Sometimes you can be lucky and the wound is just superficial and heals quickly with no scar. But if deeper layers of the skin are damaged, a moment’s distraction can result in an ugly scar.

However, with the right treatment you can ensure that the scar heals optimally. A little patience is essential as scar treatment takes time. The long duration of treatment is due to the natural healing process of the scar, which – depending on the size of the wound – can last up to a year. At the start of the healing process, the scar is usually slightly raised and reddish. How long a scar remains visible depends on various factors, e.g. the type and extent of tissue damage, the course of wound healing, general state of health, family background, or age. The result can be thickened, hardened, or tense scars.

Regular use of Contractubex® accelerates the healing process and influences it positively, ensuring that the scar heals as unnoticeably as possible. Persistent massing of the gel into the scar can prevent shrinkage of the scar tissue. The circular movements separate points of adhesion within the scar tissue, making the scar softer and more elastic. Contractubex® prevents excessive scar tissue from forming and reduces reddening, itching, and the sensation of tension. Nature alone rarely achieves results like these. Contractubex® can ensure a permanent improvement in the appearance of scars.

Use Contractubex® 2 to 3 times a day for at least 3 to 6 months. The success of the treatment will reward you for your patience.
