Does anyone know how to 'reduce the appearance' of scars? Would micro-abrasive treatments work or make them worse?
i had quite a bad scar on my heel from a motobiking accident, (52 stitches) and it got all hard skin so i put e45 on it most days and its now basiclly gone
go and see a dermatologist, they might be able to recomend something. i think that they can be lasered off.
bio-oil is what boots would recommend *ex boots girl*
The Elastoplast scar reduction plasters really work, but they're around £20 a box
the elastoplast scar reduction plasters are annoying because you have to wear them for about 1/2 the day everyday if for 6 months if you really want them to work and that's not so easy to do in summer.
the vitamin e oil from holland and barretts worked best for me but other things like tea tree oil are meant to work too. If you just want to cover them up then dermoblend works quite well but is also quite expensive i think.
Arnica works if its a decent concentration. it does help with scarring as well as bruising. i had a scar on my hand that I had since I was a child when I burned myself on a fire and its gone now.
It didnt work on my scar where stitches had been though so it must depend on how deeply the scar lies.
