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.
Recently I was unfortunate to have an accident in China. After surgery it looked as though someone had stitched my wound as they would a flour-sack. Following the directions I applied Scarfade and after the first month noticed dramatically reduced redness and the scar was beginning to smooth. After the 2ndmonth 80% of the scar was as smooth as the surrounding tissue and kept improving while using the product. What’s also remarkable about the product is how little needs to be applied to the area and how long it lasts.
