Healing Differences Between Kids and Adults

Kids and adults heal in different ways and at different rates. Scar treatments such as Scarfade work equally well on both kids and adults. Let’s look into the difference in healing between the two age groups and why scar gels are the best option for both.

Kids Heal Faster

In general, kids heal faster than adults. Whether we’re talking broken bones, wounds from injuries or anything else, kids will recover more quickly – usually in half the time. It’s just the way they’re made. There are many reasons for this.

First off, their bodies aren’t as rigid and frail as the bodies of adults, giving them more of an elastic nature that helps them bounce back from injury. Kids are able to twist and stretch in ways that may translate to serious injuries and tears in adults.

Second, young bodies are constantly growing. Their energy and bodily resources are constantly creating bone and muscle, and their organs are developing. It stands to reason that with all this growth and activity in the body, kids would heal faster as well. That’s because tissue is being repaired and reconstructed in a more effective manner than in adults, who – truth be told – haven’t really grown in many years or even decades.

Lastly, most children are simply in better physical shape than their adult counterparts. With increased physical fitness comes a more efficient cardiovascular system that pumps blood more easily to areas of the body that need it the most, such as after an injury. Adults don’t benefit from this robust cardiovascular system, which means it takes the body longer to mend their injured areas.

Kids and Adults Benefit From Scar Gel

Both kids and adults can use scar gels like Scarfade because it’s proven to work well for both age groups. Kids may not have to use it as long, though, since they are naturally quick healers. Adults are encouraged to use it for the recommended time, which is 16 weeks or more. Scarfade products improve scar texture, color, and appearance significantly, thanks to a refreshing scientifically-proven gel that softens and smooths while offering healthier-looking skin.

Scar gels go on light and not greasy, unlike some creams out there. Scarfade will moisturize the skin and improve the appearance of all kinds of burns (sunburns, chemical and industrial burns, etc.), surgical incisions, acne scars and more.

Scarfade is great for kids in particular because it can be used on any area of the body — even hard-to-treat areas such as the face, neck, ears, scalp, arms, hands, and joints. Anyone who has kids knows how active they are and how difficult it is to treat them for wounds. Unlike bandages and other wound treatments, Scarfade goes on as a light gel, which means they can resume their normal activity immediately.

For adults who have years-old scars, Scarfade can work on old acne scars, chicken pox scars, hypertrophic scars and keloids.

In short, while kids heal faster than adults, both can benefit from the healing power of Scarfade!
