FTM surgery provides individuals with the transition needed to achieve the physique that reflects their identified gender.
As with any surgery, there is a chance that scarring may occur. But you can treat scars and eliminate their appearance so that you achieve the body you’ve always wanted without any unwanted side effects.
The following are some natural remedies you can use to speed up healing and reduce the visibility of scars.
Vitamin E is a well-known natural remedy for healing scar tissue. There are many lotions, oils, and capsules on the market that contain concentrated amounts of Vitamin E. To use this product, simply apply it to the affected area.
Vitamin E stimulates the development of collagen, which is a protein in the body that improves skin texture, flexibility, and strength.
This remedy is easy to make at home. Simply peel the cucumber and remove its seeds. Then blend it with a few mint leaves.
Beat an egg white separately and add it to the cucumber/mint mix. Apply the completed mixture on the scar and leave it on for approximately 20 minutes before rinsing it off with water.
You may also be able to find a similar cucumber paste available at a local health store. Check with your local health food store to see if they carry it.
Honey is recognized for its antiseptic and moisturizing qualities. It’s used in a variety of natural healing treatments, and there are a number of ways you can utilize honey to help heal your scars.
You can use honey by itself by applying it to the scar and leaving it on overnight. To prevent getting your bedding dirty, place a bandage or dressing on the area where the honey was applied. You should notice a difference in the scar’s appearance after just a few days of this treatment.
You can also combine honey with baking soda to create a paste. Use equal parts honey and baking soda when making this mixture.
After massaging the mixture into your skin, cover it with a hot washcloth then wipe it clean after the washcloth has cooled. This treatment encourages the growth of new tissue and softens your skin.
The application of amla paste is an ancient Indian treatment used to prevent scar tissue. This remedy is available in a ready-made paste or you can purchase amla powder to mix the paste yourself.
If you choose to buy the powder, simply mix it with water or olive oil to create the paste. Once the paste is complete, apply it to your scar and let it set for a period of time before rinsing it off with cold water.
Natural remedies encourage effective cell growth, reduce scar tissue, and generate healthy skin.
