By now, you’ve heard the buzz about Scarfade and how it works incredibly to reduce the appearance of scars. However, like any other product, you need to use it correctly for it to work properly. And that means getting the most out of your Scarfade experience. Let’s take a look at what you should be doing.
Recapping: What are Scars?
Scars crop up in many ways, and they can certainly be frustrating in their stubbornness to fade away with no other attention. They need some help. That’s where Scarfade comes in, but more on that later.
Scars are essentially the result of collagen fiber regrowth post-skin injury. Most scars are superficial, leading to small temporary changes in the color of the skin. But when it comes to deeper injuries, these can lead to depressed scars (acne), and raised scars or flat, shiny scars (burns).
On the whole, most scars you receive will eventually fade and change color naturally. But if you want to speed up the process, or you have deeper scars that need more attention, keep in mind that scar gel treatments such as Scarfade will greatly reduce their appearance.
How Our Scar Gel Works
Research tells us that silicone is the most effective ingredient when attempting to reduce the appearance of scars. That’s because silicone gel helps to flatten and fade scars through extra hydration of the tissue. Scars can’t heal if they remain dry and cracked. You need constant moisturization, along with vitamin E oil and allantoin which further soften your skin into a supple feeling.
Using a bit of Scarfade gel on your fingers, smooth it on the affected area. This will help reduce redness and even-out the skin. But even before using Scarfade, you’ll have to ensure the wound is healing properly. Use antibiotic ointment and keep it covered until the healing process is well underway.
You’ll also want to protect the scarred area when going out into the sun. Use sunscreen of at least SPF 30 or don protective clothing. Sun damage alters the healing process. Scarfade has a micro-membrane that works to moisturize the area, yet it doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind like other gels or creams. It’s OK to use this topical treatment on burns, cuts, incisions and injuries.
This medically proven process will slow down your production of collagen and thus work to reduce the resulting scar. It covers the top layer of skin, locking in moisture and keeping the scar from drying out.
Apply a pea sized drop twice daily. Depending on what size scar you have and what size tube you order, you may be using Scarfade for up to 12 months. But generally, you should only have to use it for 12 to 16 weeks or until changes are no longer detected. Apply once in the morning and once at night. You may have to reapply as needed for areas that you tend to wash frequently, such as hands.
