Making your Scar fade quickly

Topical Scar Maturation agents I have found helpful include BioCorneum, Scar Guard, and Kelocoate. Raised or hypertrophic/keloid scars can also be treated with laser and injections.See your plastic surgeon for advice if this is the case.

Healing of incisions

+1
It is my practice to not leave any visible scars or Incision lines in my face or neck lifts. Incisions should be placed in the ear area and with out tension to prevent scar formation. However to answer your question my patients who are recovering from Co2 laser resurfacing love La Mer and it is a great product for skin healing with minimal reaction. I personally have an aesthetician who works in my office to advise my patients on their personal skin care needs. Check with your surgeon to see if this is available to you. Best regards!
