Scarring can have negative effects on your self-esteem. Facial scarring, since it cannot be hidden by clothing, can cause more self-esteem issues than any other scar on your body. Thankfully, you don’t have to allow scars to rob you of your self-confidence. Talk to us about your scarring concerns and let us show you some of the scar removal treatment options that are available to minimize their appearance!
When you have a healthy body image, you feel better about yourself and have more confidence in yourself. The reverse is also true. An unhealthy body image, such as one caused by scarring, can lead to a lack of confidence and a lack of self-worth.
Facial scars can be especially detrimental because your face is the first thing that people see when they look at you. Their first impressions of you are based on your appearance. Facial scars can make a person who was once confident feel timid.
Facial scars and body scars can cause you to feel depressed. This is especially true if the scarring was caused by a traumatic event. There may be feelings of shame, embarrassment, and fear associated with the scar. Every time a person sees the scar, they may be forced to relive the negative event that caused them to get the scar. Scar removal techniques can minimize the appearance of the scar, thereby minimizing how prevalent the traumatic event is in one’s mind.
There are some topical scar creams that are available. In most cases, topical scar creams produce little to no results. They may make the scar slightly lighter, or they may make the scar heal a little bit. However, laser scar removal treatments can provide a more in-depth result.
With laser scar removal treatments, what you’re basically doing is replacing a very visible scar with one that is almost invisible. Many people have seen that after laser scar removal treatments, their scar is either invisible to the naked eye or can be easily covered over with light makeup.
It’s understandable that you want to look your best. Your appearance does a lot to determine your self-confidence and self-esteem. Feeling good about the way you look is reason enough to consider scar removal treatments! Contact us today at Women’s OB/GYN Center and schedule your consultation to visit one of our Texas offices.
