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.
This is a before and after of my 7 year old daughter, who was bit by a dog under her left eye and was cut to the bone.
After the stitches were removed, we began using ScarFade gel and ScarFade Silicone sheets. The results are remarkable, and this has only been 3 months!
We are very thankful for ScarFade!
