When the deep thick layer of skin (dermis) is damaged, new collagen fibers are produced naturally by your body to heal the injury. This new tissue will have a different texture and quality, resulting in the appearance of a scar.
While we try to avoid this skin flaw as much as possible, sometimes it is inevitable that we can’t hide from it at one point in our lives. Most of us will have at least one scar somewhere found on our bodies. Some of us may be able to hide them under our clothes or makeup while some people have scars that are more prominent that can’t be hidden so easily.

This beauty duo also works as a skin-brightener for dull complexions, with the added benefit of rejuvenating tired skin. The perks don’t end here as this product also reduces the visible signs of photo-ageing, and assists in strengthening the skin against trauma while promoting healing.
Another product Dr Low recommended to limit the effects of surgery is SW1’s Skin Drink Softening and Replenishing Serum. This serum is naturally derived from olives and contains organic squalene, which is rich in antioxidants and helps to protect against free radicals that cause damage to the cells.
It provides intense hydration to parched skin while being non-comedogenic, so it is readily absorbable and will not clog the pores of your skin. This lightweight serum repairs the early signs of ageing and is preservative-free which makes it ideal even for sensitive skins.
However, if you want to minimize the appearance of existing scars, PDRN Perfection from SW1 Clinic works by prompting the physiological process of the body to revive the damaged cells. The treatment works to reverse any destruction of the DNA which in turns reduce the appearance of scars and protect the DNA against further damage.
