Are they recent or not?  If they are recent, the body does a really good job of healing them up on its own.  If they are older and faded, there probably isn’t much you can do.  No one will probably notice them.

It would depend on how bad the scars are.  ALWAYS wear sunblock on them, it will help them fade.  Also, I’ve found mederma scar cream really does work great if you’re diligent about applying it.  If you just want to cover them for the ceremony I would use make-up.

I have these little scars that look like acne scars on the back of my upper arms.  I found that regular exfoliation in the shower really helped to soften the look.

My Mederma worked wonders on the scar on my forehead.  I just got the injury in April and started using it in July and now most people don’t even notice it and makeup makes it even more unnoticeable.

I’ve heard really good things about Mederma though I’ve never used it before.  Cocoa butter is good too.

@cyndistar3: you might be able to have them covered with airbrush make up, i heard that doesn’t rub off at all. i was thinking about having them try to cover a couple at my makeup trial (not for a while) to see how it held up.

I buy Mederma at CVS 🙂  And I would try a tatoo cover up make-up…it will probably have more staying power than the average face concealer

Not to be a downer, but I have small whitish acne scars all over as well. I’ve talked to a couple dermatologists about them and they’ve said there isn’t anything they can do. Normal scar cream and even lazer treatments don’t work. I’m planning on looking into different makeup options for my day. Good luck!

Dermablend makeup (used by burn and trauma victims) will cover scars and won’t rub off.
