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 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!!
