Long periods underwater or exposure to running water can make the scabs or softened new skin fall off. This prolongs the healing process. Immersion in cold water for more than a minute or two slows down blood flow, which in turn slows down scar healing.
I was introduced to this product by Dr. Kaufmann at St. John’s Hospital in Warren, MI in 1998 after I was involved in a car accident. I required sutures in my forehead and was afraid of being scarred for life. I used the product as instructed. Unless I point the scar out to you, you would never know it was there!!! This product is fantastic. I have been recommending it to others for years!!! Thank you Dr. Kaufmann!!
