Safe - What's good for scars?

... that's not expensive. I use palmers and I think it helps but I want something that works quicker. Is it true that Bio Oil helps?
I want to get rid of them.

Bio oil is suppposed to help, i've never tried it.
I use aloe vera, it's meant ot be good.
Vitamin E cream is meant to be good to.

There is a post somewhere about removing scars. It might be in v2. I'll have a look.




The world is an interesting place when everyone you know has their own realities

Our scars remind us that the past is real

Okay, thank you hun. I was using vitamin e oil for years but it didn't seem to be doing anything for my scars. I guess I shall try Bio Oil.

The best way to avoid scaring and to get rid of scars is to take care of your cuts from the beginning. Never let them dry out and scab, always keep them covered with gauze and antibiotic cream. Once the new skin has formed keeping it supple will help a lot. Using a good vitamin E lotion or bio oil will do the most for you.

You won't always be able to get rid of all of your scars. If they are keliods, which are raised, red/pink bumpy scars it may take years for them to soften up, while minor scars may only take a few months to fade.

Visibility of the scars and how long it takes them to fade depends a lot on the person, their health, their skin color, how much sun they get, etc etc etc so it varies a lot from person to person.

Well it breaks my heart to see you this way,
The beauty in life, where's it gone?
And somebody told me you were doing okay,
Somehow I guess they were wrong.

You shouldn't expect to see any changes for 2-3 months, as scars take time to start to fade.

Mederma is a good cream thingy, but it's kind of expensive. But you know what weird thing worked for me? Body butter. I started using it, and my scars faded a little.*o.O It was odd. It might have had Aloe Vera in it....

Angel Dust seems pretty pro, though. ; )

Bio oil worked well for the scars which were raised and such, mostly made them softer and less visisble. took several months to notice any real difference though.

If you need encouragement to keep using something on scars, take a picture of them before you start using a product, then pictures every month or so after that, and after 6 months sit down and compare all of them and that way you can keep yourself motivated to keep using the product. Its a good way to see the changes over time.

Bio-oil is great, my fostercarer had a stomach operation from cancer and had a really severe (Like HUGE) scar from it, from her chest to below her waist line. Although on opperation scars it won't make you 100% clear (but it did reduce it dramatically) it tends to for s/h scars. Its marvellous.

Cocoa butter works but is very greasy. I used to use aqueous cream as a body wash rather than perfumed ones because it did not irritate my scars and healed them extremely well. And at about 2-3 for an EXTREMELY large tub I'd say its worth it!
