Vitamin E oil! Break open the little pills, rub it on, and let it do its magic. It’s been suggested to me after every surgery. That and time.

You can buy vit E oil in a bottle at wal-mart and lather it on. Either that or they have scar away patches

Both Vitamin E and Maderma work well to fade scars.  FYI though-  tanning (even fake tanner) makes scars super dark, so be wary of that if you plan to tan for your wedding..though I don’t know why you’d need to in November 😉

You can get vitamin K lotion too, usually it says on the tube that it is for scars.  I used it religiously on a burn scar on my forearm and it  is totally gone now.

Oh! My fiance just had a very serious car accident, 3 weeks ago, and has a HUGE scar all the way across his forehead and hairline..Cry 

…However, the cream that the Plastic Surgeon, who did an AMAZING job, prescribed is working like magic! It is called Contractubex. It is 3JD(= to about $5 US) over here and I bet it is about $25 in Canada and the U.S… but it is fantastic and worth every penny!!

Hope that helps!

Don’t worry to much about you scars, they  are part of you. I have a 7 in scar on my upper arm.

CaitMarae- Sounds like you have been in my mind for a while.  I am in the same situation, same arm. 🙂  I bought the Walgreens scar stuff cause Mederma is soooo expensive.  I am trying that to see how it works.

Mederma worked great for me! After I had surgery, my aunt who is a dermatologist recommended for me to use it and it’s worked great.

My MIL’s dermatologist said that Mederma is crap.  He recommends only Vitamin E and time.

I swear by Mederma. I used it for stretch marks when I had my kids and I have used it for surgery scars. I am very fair skinned and that is what worked for me. My scars are barely noticeable. You have to look extremely close to find them.

I think that scars are apart of who you are. I know that is how is for me. I have a 12 inch scar on my chest from when I had open hear surgery as a kid.  When I was younger I used to be embarassed by it.  The thing was huge ( still is ) and i hated when kids would ask about it. Over time though the scar started to fade a bit and was less of a problem for me. You can still tell that there is a huge scar but I have learned to love it. Also good thing about scars.. they fade a bit over time. 🙂

I have a couple of scars on my chest and they showed with my dress.  

1.  SUNSCREEN – nothing is worse for scars than being in the sun. 

2.  Vitamin E – break the pills open or I think you can buy in a bottle with a pump. 

3.  Scar-Zone – This has some sunscreen, vitamin E, and some other stuff to help.  More targeted at Scars then Mederma.  

4.  Airbrush Makeup – You can hardly see my scar on my chest because I had professional airbrush applied.
