Why Scarguard only once a day?

My ps said apply once a day and the scarguard box says twice a day. I don't doubt my ps (he's great) but why would he say just once a day when the box says two?

Scar guard or Plato's Scar Serum

I would apply the scar guard twice a day without issue. Silicone gels work well.

It may just be his protocol. You can also try silicon gels to help healing. After healing, lasers, microneedling/prp, subcision and fillers can be used in combination to reduce the scar's appearance. Best, Dr. Emer
