Prevention of Scars
Abhai centella cream is a formulation used by some physicians to prevent and treat scars. The cream contains the principal terpenoids extracted from C. asiatica, namely asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside, which are known to aid wound healing. Centella extract is believed to stimulate scar maturation via the production of type I collagen, with a resulting reduction in inflammation and myofibroblast production (Aesthetic Plast. Surg. 2000;24:227-34).
The positive effects of C. asiatica in wound healing are convincing (documented to aid wound healing in a large number of scientific reports) Also evidence for the improvement of, especially, keloid scar appearance is available but more research has to be done. Key effects appear to be speeding scar maturity, anti-inflammatory action and the decrease of excessive scar tissue (myofibroblast production).
Or as this study abstract on New Innovations in Scar Management puts it:
“Centella asiatica has been documented to aid wound healing in a large number of scientific reports. The most beneficial effect appears to be the stimulation of maturation of the scar by the production of type I collagen and the resulting decrease in the inflammatory reaction and myofibroblast production.”
