I was quite skeptical to read the word describing the product in the questions title. But there is really no weaker word allowed to describe this extraordinary scam. Their website is full of it but does not list anything remotely coming close to a list of ingredients. They have a sub-page called "science-faq". That lists probably the loophole their ...

There are many factors that can determine how well an individual will heal and scar. While many treatments have been suggested for the treatment of scars, only a few of them have been supported by prospective studies with an adequate control group. As a result, the development of hypertrophic scars and keloids remains an unsolved problem in the process of ...

The process of wound healing is extremely complex and combines several processes that occur after the injury. According to 'Bioengineering In Wound Healing: A Systems Approach,' These processes include coagulation, inflammation, angiogenesis, fibropalacia, epithelization, contraction, and remodeling. Wound healing is not always a linear process, as it ...

What causes these stretch marks? Stretch marks (striae) are caused by intradermal tears, that means tears that occur within the skin layers. These tears are caused when two things happen at the same time. The skin is stretching at a high rate. This happens when you gain weight rapidly, are pregnant, or are otherwise undergoing changes in body shape - as ...

Yes. It is used as a gel. WebMd.com Aloe seems to be able to speed wound healing by improving blood circulation through the area and preventing cell death around a wound. It also appears that aloe gel has properties that are harmful to certain types of bacteria and fungi. Aloe - ncbi.nlh.nih.gov: anti-inflammatory skin soothing Aloe Vera ...

WebMD lists the following three types of scars: Keloid Scars: These scars are the result of an overly aggressive healing process. They extend beyond the original injury. Over time, a keloid scar may hamper movement. Treatments include surgery to remove the scar, steroid injections, or silicone sheets to flatten the scar. Smaller keloids can be ...

Larger needles aren't used to draw blood faster in general. They are used to avoid hemolysis. 16-18 gauge needles: A large needle (16 to 17 gauge) is used to minimize shearing forces that may physically damage red blood cells as they flow through the needle What maybe used to speed up the process is: Sqeezing your fists Tourniquets or blood ...

Apparently not. An Austalian ABC article says It is true that collagen, a fibrous protein in the skin, is involved in scar formation and that vitamin E, when present in the body, influences the formation and arrangement of collagen fibres. But Dr Artemi says it does not automatically follow that applying vitamin E to skin will improve the way collagen is ...

To be clear with Surgery Nomenclature, it does not matter how the injury was inflicted. The term you are seeking is: "Depressed Cutaneous Scar". More information here(Pay-wall), and here. (Colloquially known as 'icepick scars') Depressed cutaneous scar treatment A common surgical treatment option is known as a Subcision. "...involves sliding ...

What you remember reading is correct. Scars don't generally stretch or grow with the body, however there are occasions when this can occur for a while. Stretched, or widened, scars occur when healing wounds are exposed to mechanical stress. They can be the result of the wound physically coming apart - dehiscence - and then healing by secondary intention, ...

It appears that you are describing gel tube toe/finger bandage which can be cut to size. Medipaq and Dykook are 2 brands I know of.

It will most likely depend on the location of the injury if there's tension (joint areas) and not the depth, size or type of injury. "There is evidence suggesting that increased mechanical tension can initiate hypertrophic scars formation.Based on this hypothesis, it makes sense to minimize mechanical forces after surgery. Surgical excision scars should be ...

That sounds a bit too broadly defined a question to answer with a general yes or no. Once a scar is formed it is difficult to remove, if not impossible. Cutting out scar tissue produces another scar. The outcome of this might be worse. Although quite promising, your second link qualifies: "The skin healed almost without scarring […]" Scar formation ...

It seems to be still under debate. Contradictory evidence has been found. The relative importance of Endothelin Type A and Endothelin Type B receptors during myocardial ischaemia are still debated. The word you are seeking is regenerative. Mammalian hearts are made from non-regenerative tissue. "While several animals can regenerate heart damage (e.g. ...

WebMD seems to suggest no: "Atopic eczema (disorder causing skin itching) Vitamin E has been applied to the skin to prevent scars. However, because of a risk of allergic skin reaction, some researchers have advised against the use of this therapy. Further studies are needed." And "Scar prevention Vitamin E applied to the skin does not appear to reduce ...
