Although scarring and stretch marks are natural parts of the healing process and growth and weight loss respectively, many patients view them as unsightly and unwanted. Although the skin affected will go through numerous changes as it matures, it often never attains the appearance of the surrounding skin. Therefore, it is not surprising that patients often seek help from a health professional as to how to prevent or reduce the impact of scars and stretch marks.
Nursing in Practice has produced a short video to educate on the impact of scarring on patients, including expert opinion from Independent Health Professional Kathleen McGrath (RGN, RSCN, CT Cert). We’ve also provided information on Bio–Oil which has been clinically shown to help improve the appearance of skin through the reduction of redness, width and height of scars and stretch marks.
At the end of the video, you will be given information on how you can collect a complimentary full size 60ml Bio-Oil at one of our Nursing in Practice events. Thank you for watching.
We hope you find the video to be interesting and informative.
