Postpartum scars: how to diminish and take care of these marks
The moment of labor is special for every mother, the first contact with the baby is always unforgettable, but, for those who opt for or have to go through the cesarean section, the postpartum marks can be a big problem.
The inadequate resting or exaggerate physical effort may contribute to the hypertrophic post-surgical scars appearing. The irregular scarring is capable to create adherences that result in an uneven and visually undesirable aspect.
Currently, the esthetic procedures are the saviors of the post-surgical sequels, treating the inured area and contributing to the diminishing or exclusion of these scars.
The HTM Vibria and Híbridi are ultrasound equipment that provides the acceleration of the cellular metabolism, improving the flexibility of the tissues and the breakage of the fibrotic nodes. Both of them treat and recover the tissues right after 48 hours of the surgery.
These equipment present combined therapies with electrotherapeutic currents that contribute to the collagen fibers aligning, reestablishing the bioelectricity of the tissue and even destroy the microorganisms that may cause infections.
With the inclusion of treatments on the initial postoperative, the results obtained are significantly better, preventing complications and reducing the pain symptoms. On the other hand, on the late postoperative, is possible to treat body irregularities emerging from the surgery, reducing the scar fibrosis.
The HTM scientific consultant Patrícia Lopez explains that is necessary to be attentive to the scar to diminish it. “A post-surgical, when it’s not treated correctly, may bring important complications, as serious infectious processes, and even uneven scarring, the so-called atrophic and hypertrophic scars or keloids. Besides the unaesthetic aspect, these scars are able to cause important postural alterations, emerging mainly from the adherence on the scar tissue”.
It is recommend the undertaking an average of 8 sessions, but this number may vary according to the clinical picture and evolution of each patient.
