 The North America Scar Treatment Market Is Driven By Increasing Road Traffic Accidents

Scar treatment involves reducing the appearance of existing scars and preventing formation of new scars. Scars can occur due to minor injuries, burns, acne, chickenpox, and other skin conditions. They are also commonly caused by road traffic accidents and surgeries. In North America, rising road accidents have increased the demand for scar treatment products. Various scar treatment cream, gels, laser therapy, chemical peels, injectables and surgery are used to minimize scarring. Laser therapy helps reduce scars by breaking down scar tissues. Chemical peels aid in the exfoliation and regrowth of new skin cells to diminish the appearance of scars. Scar treatment creams containing silicone, onion extract and vitamin E hydrates the scarred skin and promote healing.

Over the years, increasing availability of advanced scar treatment options has been a major trend in the North America scar treatment market. For instance, fractional laser resurfacing uses a low-intensity laser on scars to induce microscopic wounds, stimulating collagen production and resulting in smoother skin texture. Fractional lasers are minimally invasive and provide great improvement for acne scars. Similarly, laser scar revision is a targeted treatment that works by heating and shrinking the scar tissue using precise laser beams. With technological advancements, laser scar treatment procedures have become more effective with minimal side effects and faster healing time. Another key trend is growing demand for scar treatment products based on organic and natural ingredients. Consumer preference for chemical-free solutions is driving innovations in herbal and Ayurvedic scar reducing gels and creams.
