I suffered an injury at age 2, that split-open my left cheek and left a hypotrophic scar. For a young, small, smooth face, the imperfection was pronounced. In elementary school, I remember the first two questions when meeting new kids were: Whats your name? What happened to your face?
This went on for years. It bothered me. I was embarrassed, and even ashamed. Eventually as a teenager I accepted it as other smaller scars from chicken pox and acne, along with facial hair, diluted the scars prominence.
But I am lucky. It was not a large hypertrophic or keloid scar but just a small hypotrophic scar. Yet I had a glimpse of what a person feels like when the multi-month wound healing and scarring process are not optimal. After two years of research, my team and I developed CicaLux – Energized Scar Therapy. I was among the first to use CicaLux. It improved my 5yr old hypertrophic shoulder scar. We aim to help your scar too!
