Scars, tatoos and other things chicks dig

Seriously though,

Anyone here know of a scar healing “cocktail” that might work better than liquid vitamin E alone? I’m applying it twice a day and it seems to work, but you know how the saying goes, “bigger FASTER stronger”

Any help you all might have would be awesome.


Skin creams that contain alpha-hydroxy acids seem to help reduce the appearance of scars. My experience is with long-ago healed scars, so I can’t vouch for how it works during the healing process.

I’m using Mederma and my surgical scars look a hell of a lot better than I expected they would at three weeks post-op. Tea tree oil might not be a bad choice either.

I just had some minor surgery and the doc said the only thing that really works during the healing process is the vitamin E oil three times a day.

You could try this stuff. I’ve never used it (copper peptides) so I can’t say if it works or not:

There is also some stuff called Mederma which is supposed to improve the appearance of scars. You can find it at some drug stores or pharmacies (it’s a non-presciption gel). You can probably find more info on it with a Google search
