Does anyone know how to 'reduce the appearance' of scars? Would micro-abrasive treatments work or make them worse?

Go to Boots and ask, they'll recommend something. If I could be bothered, I would read my mums Beauty Bible :|. I might take a look later.

I have quite a few... a small one under my chin from hitting a see-saw (don't ask), a pretty deep one on my arm from a scary incident with a meat cleaver (don't ask), and a really thick, deep one on my stomach from an operation (don't ask!). It's the arm one that really bothers me though because everyone thinks that I self harm and act all weird when they see it

i've read somewhere that vitamin e oil is good for reducing the appearance of scars. i'm sure that boots do one
Most places have vit E cream. But I don't see how applying vitamins to your skin will work... I was always told that it needed to be absorbed into your body... ie via your digestive system

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.

I've got a quality scar on my arm :cool: There is a little round one, similar to a 1p piece, but about a third of the size on my forearm, and then a tadpole shaped scar on my upper arm - quality!

I had a huge chunk of flesh from my wrist chopped off thanks to an accident with a glass table when I was six. I still have the scar.
