When soaking up the sunshine in true summer fashion, be sure to cover scars with SPF rated clothing or sunscreen. While the idea of tanning a light scar seems like a nice idea, it’s not. Melanin is what gives your skin a tanned look, but scars produce it in uneven patches. Too much melanin on the upper layers of skin creates hyperpigmentation.
I used the Scarfade Gel after having had three surgeries on the back of my hand, and forearm and I must say – I am definitely impressed with the results. What I thought were going to be a couple of nasty scars due to the size of the incisions are virtually unnoticeable. So now thanks to a skilled surgeon, I am cancer free, and unless I was to point it out, thanks to Scarfade, the surgery is just a story with no visuals. This is truly a great product and I would certainly recommend it to anyone I know.
