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.
I began using Scarfade on the scar I received from a cesarean section in June 2010. Part of my scar was puckered from a section of bad stapling in which my skin had been folded. I saw results within weeks! I continued to use the gel for 6 months, and after comparing with a friend that also had a c-section, I believe without a doubt that Scarfade made a huge, positive difference in the appearance of my scar. The scar is so fine now that I have to point it out to others for them to notice it and you can’t see any difference between the area my skin was stapled badly and the area it wasn’t! Thank you, Scarfade!
