It really does not matter what kind of marks you carry: be it the acne pock marks, or some scars or the tradition of burns on skin, a surgery or wound scar; we are sure that you would want it removed anyhow, right?
There has always been a popular belief since many years that Vitamin E helps in reducing the scars’ visibility and has the ability to heal them perfectly. On the shelves of super marts, you will be able to find hundreds of creams and powders that would make startling claims regarding clearing of scars with the backing that they have Vitamin E in it to do that. However, little do the people who buy these kinds of products know the significance of vitamin E in them. If you also are amongst those people who have was led into believing the same phenomena then get ready to be shocked because all your life was a big lie! There is nothing much concrete in the medical science which supports the claim of Vitamin E being really effective against the scars.
We can say that because so far, there has not been any clinical report which can prove us wrong. Adding to this, if we are to believe one of the leading dermatologist, Dr. Phillip Artemi who hails from Sydney, then using Vitamin E for the sole purpose of getting rid of scars will do you no good. According to him, vitamin E has clearly shown in the studies carried out that it has got no beneficial effect on getting the scars removed.
She further said "People put a vitamin E cream on, [and over time] notice the improvement, and quite incorrectly, think, 'Oh it's this stuff I'm putting on' — but it's not,"
After your body has formed a scar, it goes through a natural yet slow process of improvement of scar for about a period of one year. And because of this, people ought to believe that the improvement that they oversaw is because of vitamin E which they applied consistently. But in actually case it is not and the improvement they oversaw was because of the body’s growth and the credit should go to it rather than any cream that contains vitamin E.
According to the experts of the said field, it is absolutely nonsense to go with creams that have vitamin e mainly because of the fact that collagen which is a fibrous protein in our skin is the major reasons why scars are formed and when we apply vitamin E to our skins, it further encourages the fiber to grow because Vitamin E is known to promote the growth of Collagen.
So in short, it is quite harmful to be using Vitamin E for the purpose of removing scars because at the end of the day, it does not stop or reduces it but plays its part in increasing the depth and the number of scars present on your skin!
