When soaking up the sunshine in true summer fashion, be sure to cover scars with SPF rated clothing or sunscreen. While the idea of tanning a light scar seems like a nice idea, it’s not. Melanin is what gives your skin a tanned look, but scars produce it in uneven patches. Too much melanin on the upper layers of skin creates hyperpigmentation.
Although it had been over 7 months since my last surgery when I started using Scarfade, I was amazed at the difference it made. After 2 surgeries and difficulties with healing, my scar had been very deep and dark. Scarfade aided in the skin restoration and fading of the scar. I love the product and would like another brochure (I lost mine) to share with my ankle surgeon. Thank you for including me in your study!
