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 began using Scarfade on the scar I received from a cesarean section in June 2010. Part of my scar was puckered from a section of bad stapling in which my skin had been folded. I saw results within weeks! I continued to use the gel for 6 months, and after comparing with a friend that also had a c-section, I believe without a doubt that Scarfade made a huge, positive difference in the appearance of my scar. The scar is so fine now that I have to point it out to others for them to notice it and you can’t see any difference between the area my skin was stapled badly and the area it wasn’t! Thank you, Scarfade!
