When applying scar gel, a good rule of thumb is to spend 3-5 minutes massaging Scarfade into the skin during each application. We suggest using both circular (clock wise and counter clock wise) motions as well as up and down and sideways motions. This will help break down scar tissue.
I had bunion surgery and used Scar Fade right after surgery. It took the redness and the itching away and now my scar is flat.
