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.
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.
