Avoid putting strain on a wound site during healing: Putting strain on a wound site can slow and hinder the healing process and lead to more prominent scarring. Stretching the skin may open/ widen the wound and increase healing time.
I have used ScarFade following the removal of a basal cell carcinoma in the middle of my forehead. My two inch scar has dramatically improved over this 3 month post-operative period and is barely visible. ScarFade is a wonderful product.
