Skin takes some time to recover its natural form. The wound healing process takes around two years. In addition, genetic factors like skin type or the location and extent of the injury itself, are crucial factors for development and healing.
Sun and scars: bad combination
Scars from surgical wounds are often more sensitive to the sun. So it’s important to avoid the sun for at least 6 months, as you run the risk of the scar remaining permanently pigmented.
For this reason, it’s recommended that the scarring be continuously covered by high protection sunscreen, among other remedies against radiation in the summer season. Likewise in winter, although we don’t see much sun, ultraviolet rays are also present and act on our skin.
"In and out" bathing
Long baths are not advisable during the first 15 days of healing. Our intention is to mitigate the heat, it’s best to ensure that said bath is as short as possible, because the skin of the wound hasn’t yet acquired its permanent consistency. So lengthening time of contact with water is contraindicated.
Frequent or prolonged immersion lengthens the healing period and alters its appearance, albeit transiently: more pronounced scarring with a more intense colour…
It’s recommended that the skin always be well hydrated, especially after surgery.
