Question Will They Last Forever? - September 11th 2013, 03:56 AM

Hey guys! Last night I asked how to tell my mom and friend, I haven't yet, but I'm planning on it soon. (btw thank you to the people who answered me! It helped tons) Anyways, I've been clean for two days. I know it's not a long time, but it's a step I guess. But I was wondering how the scars will show up? Right now the cuts are just red and a slight pink. When/if they scar, will they be white or what? And if so, will they ever go away? Thank you guys so much

Hey there!

Scars really depend on the person, their skin, and how deep the cuts were. But, in answer to your question about them going away; they will with time. Of course, you can use things such as body scrubs, lemon juice, and bio oil to make the process a little faster. Eventually they'll probably go white, which is about as far as they're going to get before they fade away completely (if they do.)
