After a cut, a wound, an aesthetic procedure or even after acne issues, many people have healing problems. Indeed, the healing process is complexe and can vary according to people. It is linked to diverse factors as located skin lesions repairing and damaged tissues regeneration. If the process is altered, the lesion can lead to a visible scar that can be permanent on the skin surface.
But first, what is a scar?
A scar is the visible part of a dermis lesion after skin repairing process. It appears after an incision linked to a surgical procedure or even a wound and a cut for instance. To replace the damaged tissue, the new tissue that we call scar tissue, is often less qualitative. The scars will be more sensitive to UV, hair follicles won't develop under the scars...
Every cutaneous wounds are likely to bad healing. That is why this is highly important to accompany the healing process step by step.
What are the different steps of the healing process?
A scar evolves during 18 months, while it will progressively get repaired. During this process, the skin will change its aspect many times. There are 4 different steps:
- Inflammatory step: just after the surgery or wound, at this moment the scar is red and swelled. During this step, the bleeding is stopped and bacteria can't enter the skin.
- Angiogenesis step : this is the time when the skin is beginning its repairing process and new blood vessels are appearing.
- Collagen synthesis step: fibers sustaining the skin are reformed.
- Remodeling step: it happens between 6 to 18 months, this is a reconstruction step, very long and that needs to be accompanied with healing cares.
After 18 months, the scar becomes mature and has its final appearance. But you can fight against its development from the very beginning!
How to heal better?
Even if you can't make a scar totally disappear, you can prevent its formation by helping it to heal better and faster.
Since the first minutes, this is necessary to clean the wound with an antiseptic solution by patting gently.
Once the skin is well cleaned, you can use an adapted skin care as the L.C.E. Balm that can be applied directly on open wound and on mucous membrane.
Without perfume and without preservatives, our L.C.E. Balm is a repairing care, that heals and decongests the skin in an unique way thanks to its active ingredients:
- The Cebeline which is our patented active ingredient that accelerates the epidermis healing process and repairs tissues.
- Blackcurrant extract to increase microcirculation to fight against bruises.
- Finally, the Escin extract that preserves the skin elasticity and permeability of the vein wall to decongest swellings and oedema.
When the skin is stressed and with a wound, the cell regeneration and cutaneous healing processes begin in the Dermo Epidermic-Junction (DEJ). This is a very important structure linking the dermis and the epidermis layers and allowing them to exchange. Inside this junction, we find the Laminin 5 that plays a major role in the adhesion of the two layers and that interacts with cells at the surface of the skin to heal the tissues. Thus, this protein is essential in the healing process.
The patented active Cebeline inside our L.C.E. Balm is the active fragment of this Laminin 5 protein. We created it in partnership with the French Research Institute CNRS. Cebeline offers a mechanical action that reinforces the structure of SEJ and that will allow a better anchorage and better exchanges between the dermis and the epidermis. It also has a biological action that acts on the migration and adhesion of the cells to accelerate the epidermis regeneration!
Its ultra comfortable texture is easy to apply and will leave a protective film non occlusive on the wound so as to protect it from external aggressions while promoting essential exchanges to accelerate its healing. A very small quantity is enough. After a procedure or at home, apply a small quantity of L.C.E. Balm on local area and do it as much as necessary to help the skin surface to regain its integrity.
Doctors recommend the L.C.E. Balm after aesthetic procedures such as lifting, blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty or even after injection. But L.C.E. Balm is also the best ally at home in a daily use to fix all the little scratches, relieve irritated areas as very dried lips, bruises or swellings.
