When the skin gets damaged due to some kind of trauma or injury, scars can be formed. The skin has the quality of regeneration and when this process is absent, there will be the appearance of scars. Scars are fibrous tissues that are formed instead of the normal skin. They are considered to be the skin’s healing process after a burn or injury. Scars are part of a normal process of healing, and most wounds usually result in some form of scaring. The scars that are formed after a disease, accident, or surgery do not regenerate and cause a permanent mark to be left. The formation of tissue over the area of injury is of a quality that is inferior, since important functions performed by the normal skin like hair growth and the functioning of the sweat glands are not done. Some of the scars can be unattractive and cause the individual a lot of discomfort and so various methods of treatment for scars can be used.

Unfortunately, most scars do not go away. Scars are caused by additional skin cells that are formed in the area of an injury to help protect that area from future injuries. If the scars are more than two years old, chances are they will not go away. But even then, they can be minimized by the following treatment.

Emu oil comes from a large bird called an Emu. An Emu is very much like an Ostrich. Emu oil is known world wide for its exception healing properties for a variety of things, including arthritis pain. Perhaps is most advertised capability is for the healing of scar tissue. The reason it is able to do this is that its PH and chemical make up are almost identical to that of human skin.
