What is the best thing to use on my scar?

Lots of ladies use made a, others use silicone tape, some use vitamin e oil and some use coconut oil. I have had many surgeries and have never had a problem with my scars, they have always faded to white. This one, being so much bigger than my c-sections and my L5 back surgery, I am thinking that I might try something. I don't want to waste my money on gimmicky products though. Is there a product that is proven to actually work?

I would use a combination protocol that includes Plato's Scar Serum and PDL to help improve most scars in the early phase of healing.

I suggest silicone based scar gels with growth factors when scars are initially healing.  Best, Dr. Emer.
