If you have a recent injury, such as a cut or burn, and are concerned it may result in a scar, it’s important to take immediate action. The sooner you apply silicone scar gels like Scarfade, the better the results will be. To ensure your scar fades instead of gets worse, you should use OTC gels and creams as directed in order to get the most benefit out of them.
Use as Directed
Scarfade scar treatment cream is actually a gel which you apply like a cream. Once the injured area of your skin has healed, apply the gel directly to the affected area, massaging it gently onto the skin. This will add a very thin silicone layer to the scar, reducing its appearance over time. How long this will take will vary from person to person. The location of the scar, how old it is and its type/ severity are all factors that will impact how well and how quickly it improves.
It’s good to know that Scarfade scar treatment cream is pretty much invisible, and you can even wear it under makeup. Simply wash it off with soap and warm water. Scarfade gel is best used on keloid and hypertrophic scars, as well as scars arising from surgeries, burns, car accidents and sporting accidents.
Generally, Scarfade should be used for 12 to 16 weeks after injury, or until the size or intensity of the scarred area is no longer prominent. Apply a pea-sized drop twice a day. Our largest tube can last up to one year on a scar under two inches and up to four months for a scar up to six inches.
There are other things you can do to minimize the appearance of your scar, in conjunction with using scar treatment gel:
- Avoid the sun as your scar heals: This will decrease the likelihood of red/brown discoloration. If you do go outside, use SPF 30 or higher, reapplying frequently.
- Refrain from picking at scabs: Your scabs may be itchy, but it you remove that protective coating, the healing process will be interrupted and increase the chances of hyperpigmentation.
- Keep the area moist: Apply scar treatment gel or an antibiotic cream to the wounded area, then cover it with a bandage. Avoid using hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound, which can irritate the scar and slow down healing.
