Long periods underwater or exposure to running water can make the scabs or softened new skin fall off. This prolongs the healing process. Immersion in cold water for more than a minute or two slows down blood flow, which in turn slows down scar healing.
I was diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma last year, located on my forehead between my eyebrows. After having it removed I had approximately a 1 inch incision that had several stiches and after removal I had a substantial wound. My friend Nancy sent me Scar Fade and I used it diligently for a month and continued to use it as I felt it was needed. I am very pleased with the outcome!! Can’t even see where the incision was made! Thank you Nancy for introducing me to Scar Fade!
