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 have used Scarfade over the past 14 years off and on for various cuts and even a couple surgeries. I had a horrible two inch cut on my ankle from shaving my leg and now, even 10 years later you can’t see where it was because I used Scarfade Scar Gel. It is important to use it twice a day and be diligent about using the gel until the scar is faded but it is worth it. I have also used Scarfade on my knee after arthroscopic surgery and you can’t see the incisions, the same with my shoulder. When I go in for my final shoulder surgery in March I will again use Scarfade to get rid of the incision marks.
