TREATMENTS THAT GET RID OF DARK SCARS
Common treatments used to get rid of dark scars can be dangerous.
The inventor of InviCible, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Minas Chrysopoulo, explains: “Overproduction of melanin during healing can cause abnormally dark scars, a condition which is called hyperpigmentation.” Finding a safe treatment to reduce the color can be very confusing, because most skin lighteners have side effects and ironically can worsen dark scars. Luckily, InviCible is safe for all skin types.
So what will the most common options do for your scar?
Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is undoubtedly effective as a lightening agent, which became the standard therapy years ago. However, many studies have since then proven that it can cause permanent hyperpigmentation (ochronosis), contact dermatitis, and nail discoloration. Texas considers it dangerous and outlawed certain hydroquinone shipments, and some countries prohibit its sale altogether.
Kojic Acid: Though effective, studies show that Kojic acid can make the skin more sensitive. Skin sensitization can lead to allergic contact dermatitis, which can make scars worse. Like hydroquinone, kojic acid does not improve the texture of a scar.
Tretinoin (Retinol) and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): Retinol and AHA’s exfoliate your skin and make it look “fresh”. However, they can cause dryness, redness, or inflammation, which can make a scar darker. Again, like hydroquinone and kojic acid, they do not improve the texture of a scar.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is safe and effective. It lightens dark scars and promotes healthy collagen production, which helps the scar look better. Unfortunately, the most common form of Vitamin C turns brown and quickly stops working. InviCible resolves this stability issue with a special form of stable Vitamin C, which decreases melanin production by 80% according to independent clinical studies.
Licorice Extract: Licorice extract is safe and effective. It is a strong anti-inflammatory, speeds up skin renewal, and like stable Vitamin C, it inhibits melanin production. Licorice also boosts the lightening effects of Vitamin C. As a bonus, licorice also helps prevent and treat acne.
InviCible contains both stable Vitamin C and licorice extract to get rid of dark scars as effectively and safely as possible.
You probably have drawn the same conclusion as Dr. C did when he invented InviCible: a scar treatment must offer safe ingredients. Although each of us is different, we share one thing– we do not want to make our scars worse! InviCible will help fade your scar without causing any harm. Just imagine how good you will you feel when you get rid of that dark scar!
