When searching for Scar Treatment products, check the ingredients lists for Silicone/Dimethicone. This is the only ingredient documented to be effective on scars via scientific studies published in reputable medical journals. Other ingredients may be good for the skin, but when added to Scar Treatment products, they can actually decrease effectiveness.
I used the Scarfade Gel after having had three surgeries on the back of my hand, and forearm and I must say – I am definitely impressed with the results. What I thought were going to be a couple of nasty scars due to the size of the incisions are virtually unnoticeable. So now thanks to a skilled surgeon, I am cancer free, and unless I was to point it out, thanks to Scarfade, the surgery is just a story with no visuals. This is truly a great product and I would certainly recommend it to anyone I know.
