How long do scars usually last after surgery? I had surgery in October, just wondering if it will start to fade away any time soon?Scars?????
depends how deep it was, but from experience they don't tend to fade away that much. I've had a scar from shoulder surgery for over 2 years and i know a guy who has had one for over 5 years. They make scar patches to help them fade , which work really well.Scars?????
I had surgery in October too and I have been using vitamin E cream to help fade it...obviously the scar will never fade completely but the vitamin e cream helped mine fade...mederma is a good brand...hope this helps
Try using Mederma. It is an over the counter and is recommended by MD's. If you don't want to spend the extra money use pure cocoa butter, it will make it softer and less noticeble.

How long should I massage after I apply MEDERMA(Gel for scars) to my scar?

Hi everyone, I am using MEDERMA right now, but I don't know how long should I massage after I apply MEDERMA to my scar. Can some one share your experience with me. Thanks

PS: the directions say ';Apply a thin coat of MEDERMA庐 to the scar, and gently massage in three times a day for eight weeks on new scars and three times a day for three to six months on existing scars.';

It does not tell how long should I massage, so I massage my scar until the MEDERMA get dry.How long should I massage after I apply MEDERMA(Gel for scars) to my scar?
um im guessing untill its rubbed in??

Over the counter products for acne scars?

Can you tell me what products actually work to fade or remove acne scars? I don't want a product that will cause me to break out, nothing that will clog my pores or irritate my skin. I have had my scars for over a year, they have faded a bit but I want to speed up the process. I want to feel handsome again, I want positive attention from women.Over the counter products for acne scars?
DON'T use maderma.Over the counter products for acne scars?

Neutrogena Acne Mark Fade %26amp; Peel. It worked wonders for my skin. It's also not very expsenive.

I'd also suggest, as a home remedy, that you use Lemon Juice on acne scars to help diminish the look of them and leave your skin looking clear.

How to get rid of acne scars?

I'm 18, and on birth control for medical reasons. I used to have really bad acne, but now I have a really nice complexion.

The only problem is that I have acne scars in my T-zone. Mostly under my nose and my chin. They're little reddish/brown spots that I can't seem to get rid of unless I cover them with makeup.

I've made it my goal to have perfect skin within a month. How can I get rid of these nasty little scars?How to get rid of acne scars?
I started having really bad acne problems beginning when I was 13. I had acne on my cheeks that was really making me self-concious. I tried Proactiv, Zyporex, and even the Asso Gold Cleaning Bar with limited results. I wound up contacting a dermatologist. After 4 months nearly all of my acne cleared up. I recommed you try calling a dermatologist that can help. http://www.homeacnecare.comHow to get rid of acne scars?
# Have a chemical peel performed. This is a good treatment for very light acne scarring. Different types of acid are applied to the top layer of the skin. The acid is then removed about 15 minutes later. Again this will remove the top damaged layers of the epidermis. Redness and swelling is common after the procedure. Depending on the amount of acid applied, recovery time can take from a day to a couple of weeks.
i used lemons, and a flour and milk mask. I know it may sound weird but trust me they really work. Here are some links that can help you. Hope i helped and good luck.

    i have a few scars on my cheeks from acne when i was a really small child. i have never been able to get rid of them, what can i do?

    (my acne is better now, its just the scars) their small indentations.. what can i do?

    thanks so much!How can i get rid of acne scars?
    If you are referring to light scarring from acne, go see a dermatologist and get a prescription for a topical treatment. For example, Retin-A promotes cell turnover and can help stimulate collagen production.

    If the scarring is a little deeper, a doctor can advise you on ways to minimize it and inform you of your options. (ex. dermabrasion or laser treatments)

    A good dermatologist will help you find what is right for you.

    Please do not waste your time or money on over the counter products or non-medical treatment. See a doctor first, your skin and your wallet will thank you in the long run.How can i get rid of acne scars?
    Vitamin E oil or cream can be applied to the skin in the affected areas, every day .The cream should be applied overnight. Aloe Vera gel and fresh lemon juice can be applied to the scars, so that they fade quickly. You can find more cheap and natural remedies for stretch marks or scars at the link below.
    You might be surprised, but the only thing that works on acne scars are tears. When you cry, smooth your tears over the problem area ( make sure it's free of makeup). Don't try to smooth it over the entire face, just one small area at a time. The more times you will do that, the smoother and firmer that area of your skin will become. Leave it on overnight. Tears have an incredible property to renew skin.

    DON'T ever consider microdermabrasions or lasers, they will only destroy layers of your skin, do nothing for the scars, and make the overall appearance of your skin far worse.

    Use either fade cream or makeup that is for your skin type, dry or oily.
    I don't think you can bar cosmetic surgery. Small imperfections in your complexion are minor; don't sweat the small stuff.
    Use an exfoliator like St.Ives Apricot scrub thrice a week.Then use mud masks.Then good moisturizer will help.(you could also use Mederma from Walgreens anti scar cream)
    I have acne scars on my cheek....and when i pop ugly pimples on my forehead also i get scars........what REALLY healps the scars is petroleum jelly,..when i pop the pimple,,,or have the scars...i put a thick layer of petroleum jelly on the scar, and put 2 sheets of paper towel on my pillow and to sleep, wash my face the next morning and the scar goes away,,,,especially if it a scab from my popping the pimple,...and to get rid of other scars that are already there,...keep doing that..and every morning when you wash your'll see it lighten up more and more,..

    hope that helped

    Lotions usually do they job since they even out skin tones. I think that a daily routine of applying lotion should work out for you. However, you must be patient, it's not an overnight process. However, in the long run it'll work. If you want to choose a scar solution i think that you should go with the most popular brand for ointments... neosporin.鈥?/a>
    I think Treadstone gave the very best advice here. I speak from experience as I myself have had to treat acne scars. I use retin-a at .1% and it helps the exfoliate the outer layers of your skin and promote the production of collagen, which helps minimize the scars. I have been using for 8 weeks now and see a huge difference.

    Tears won't work, that is bs, and microdermabrasion won't ruin your skin, in fact you will come out with a more smooth and even complexion. It is well worth the money. The only thing is you will be slightly red for about a day.

    Definately listen to Treadstone and talk to a dermatologist.

    Good luck.
