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.
About 4 years ago last March I had a knee replacement and my niece gave me some Scarfade and told me how great it was at making scars almost fade away. She was right. And then last September I had my other knee replaced, she gave me another tube in my get well package … I again used it. When I went back to see my Doctor for my 6 month visit after the surgery he said that it looked great and I should do an advertisement for Scarfade.
