Bio oil. A girl in my office got almost the exact same scar when she was hit by a drunk driver. She used it 2 or 3 times a day and it helped a lot. You can barely see it, and for pictures as just puts on a good concealer.

A reasonably talented photographer will totally be able to remove the scar in photos if that’s important to you, so I’d definitely talk to him/her about it.

I can’t recommend concealers, but I’m sure other people will be able to!

@Ashley_B:

I agree, Bio Oil is great. I have a scar across half of my stomach from a surgery and I used that daily and it’s so faint now and it’s right across 2 or 3 sets of muscles in an area with a lot of movement from walking/sitting.

I think on the face it would work really well.

As far as concealer goes, I use one by dior and it’s really good.

I hope you find something that works for you…

Dermablend.  You can find it at Macys or Ulta.  Be sure to also get the setting powder.  The price is reasonable, $30 for a large tube of the cover up.  It won’t come off.

In the meantime, you may want to try some silicone scar strips.  I had great success with those.  Found them on Amazon.

I had pretty extensive surgery a few years back and cover up any residual pinkish bits on special occasions with Dermablend – it really works – Their website (first result from google)  is pretty informative – I use the leg and body cover but they have products for the face too. I have even used it to cover a leg tattoo I have when i needed a more polished look. Also as others said, this will be no issue for a good photographer – mine is going to photoshop my braces out of my pics!

If you dont have a dermablend retailer near you you can order online. I was in a ccident many years ago and while I was waiting for my scars to heal and fade I used it. I also use it to cover up some rather large/dark tattoos I have now

also put coco butter on it it helps heal scars, and put sunscreen on it everytime you go outside, the sun can make them worse.  Talk to your dr as well b/c I think there are prescripion creams you can get that will help eliminate scars and make them less visable!!!

these are all great products that pp suggested. 

have you considered a hairstyle to cover the scar?  also, your photographer will be able to photoshop your pics not to mention, certain poses may not even have your scar in view.

that looks like it was quite a nasty accident.  are you overall recovering?

Have you had the scar looked at by a physio or RMT?

They do scar treatments, often uncomfortable, that you may not be up to doing yourself.  Otherwise the bio-oil/mederma self-massage twice daily will help.

if your scar is still read and raised it would realy benefit from silicone sheets to wear during the night, this would probably work better than anything else to reduce it. 

In the mean time I would recomend Cover FX as it is formulated for and is recomended by makeup artists for scar/tattoo coverage.
