I recently had surgery, and looking for something to fade scarring. I'm using Mederma, but someone told me vitamin E capsule is better. Anyone know a better solution ?
Bio oil. It won't remove the scar, I don't think any product can do that, but it might lighten it.
If the scarring is raised you'll need to visit a dermatologist or platic surgeon for cortisone injections. They do it with an ultrafine needle. I had a couple of moles removed and they left bumps. The plastic surgeon who did ghe work also did the scar removal. Now you'd never tell.
the key is not the product (most products sold as "scar removers/faders" are simply mineral oil, etc.
what helps fade a scar better is keeping it moist and promoting circulation. Massage moisturizer (oil or creme) into area 2x a day and it will improve the fading
Castor Oil. Make a Castor Oil Pack. Google it.
Stick with Lancôme for facial creams and Clarins for body treatments.
Coco Butter cream. It's made to fade scares. You can find it at any drug store.
Bio Oil or a good olive oil or coconut oil.
I used both Bio Oil and olive oil that my friend's family from Spain makes (we lived in the EU at the time) on a recent burn scar. The burn was bad enough that I had to go to the hospital every day to have the wound dressing changed. After the bandages were able to be removed, I used both oils to keep the skin moist. Besides an extremely faint outline around where the burn was (most of my forearm), you can't see the wound at all.
I suggested Bio Oil to another friend who had some bad scars on her leg from a weedeater accident and she said she saw a noticeable difference within 2 weeks.

None of these things work -- but knock ourself out. Buy whatever you like because they all work equally the same, I.e., not at all. Buy them all, if you like.
