Scar reduction? - March 23rd 2012, 07:03 PM

People are bound to have asked this before, but has anyone found anything particularly useful in helping scars fade? I have been using a scar reduction gel and the scars are getting less bumpy and have become paler but they are still pretty obvious.
Someone at school mentioned using bio-oil for scar reduction, does anyone know if that works?

I'm going to uni in September to study medicine but I'll have to obey the bare forearms policies. I don't exactly want to miss out on my future because I hated my past.

Thanks!

You can try Mederma. I've tried it a couple of times and it has worked for me.

Hey there,

The scar gel sounds like it working but it will take a while for the scars to fade. I've heard off many people that bio oil helps the scars to fade. Whatever you use it will take a while but they will fade eventually anyways.
In the mean time when you go to study medicine, perhaps you can cover them with makeup, but i'm sure no one would say anything anyway.

If you ever want/need to talk, feel free to PM me,
Take care,
Charli

Creams with vitamin E in them are brilliant. There's one you can get at boots for 3.77. It's called Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula.

Hope this helps, and best of luck at uni

Revitol Scar Cream should work.
