Lip piercing is a wonderful way to make a style statement. It makes the wearer look trendy and fashionable. This is the reason why it is so popular among the youth. If you have got your lips pierced, you must have enjoyed a lot all the appreciation and attention from others. However, you cannot deny one fact. It is that lip piercing makes you pay too much with the scar that it leaves behind. It is very difficult to get rid of these scars. It makes your appearance miserable when you are not wearing the jewelry. It makes you feel down. You have to answer others how you got it, what are you doing for its removal, and many other similar questions from your friends. No doubt that the condition of having a scar is highly undesirable. You spend a lot of time thinking upon the ways to get rid of it.

How to Get Rid of the Scar

As mentioned above, it is difficult to make a scar disappear completely. The scar does not fade fully because it is quite different from normal scars. It is not the usual dark spot on the skin but actually a hole on your lip. It appears as if a small amount of skin is missing. Filling the hole with new skin is really hard with general treatment methods. The surefooted way to remove the scar, and fill the hole again is with the interference of a dermatologist specialized in plastic surgery. The dermatologist will remove the scar, and put a couple of stitches to realign the skin. Working with techniques using laser or creams rarely help in scar removal.

However, if you are suffering from scar tissue, you may try out certain home remedies. If not completely remove the scar tissue, these natural remedies will definitely prepare it for removal by scrubbing and other techniques. Massage the lip area containing scar with vitamin A, C, or E oil. Massage with gentle motions with your fingers using the vitamin oil. Do it for 1 - 2 minutes. To get fast results, do it everyday before bedtime. You may get all these vitamins together in natural form in shea butter or cocoa butter. You may use any of these butter types for massaging the scar area on your lips. Any of them would work by softening, and smoothing the collagen and elastin bonds in the scar tissue. There are some other home remedies that can help fade the mark's appearance. Take a small slice of lemon, and rub it on the scarred lip. Do it for a minute once daily. It will remove the darkness around the piercing. You may use vinegar or tomato pulp for the same purpose.

Scarring after any kind of body piercing is natural. You have to bear it. However, you can get rid of body piercing scars with dermatological techniques for sure. If you find your scars interfere with your physical appearance, you can consider taking help from a dermatologist. Trying out the suggested home remedies may also provide some relief.
