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.
Recently I was unfortunate to have an accident in China. After surgery it looked as though someone had stitched my wound as they would a flour-sack. Following the directions I applied Scarfade and after the first month noticed dramatically reduced redness and the scar was beginning to smooth. After the 2ndmonth 80% of the scar was as smooth as the surrounding tissue and kept improving while using the product. What’s also remarkable about the product is how little needs to be applied to the area and how long it lasts.
