    Umm, I think it's called Mederma, but that's supposed to work.

    I have a small acne scar on my cheek and tried using Mederma....it worked until i got a huge zit underneath the skin from it......then it scabbed up. needless to say, i havent used it since. My scar is so small u cant really notice it unless u r in the perfect light.

    Plastic surgeon. Mederman hasn't really helped mine at all yet (it's only been 3 weeks though).

    I've heard of people recommending Retin-A, but I have no personal experience.

    It can be picked up from a canadian pharmacy or prescription from your doctor

    When I had my injury, they recomended seeing a plastic surgeon in about a year to have it grinded down. The mederma did make it less red around the scar and made it whiter, so it is less noticable, but not smaller.

    ill see how it heals. i have a fare share of scars anyway, just dont want it to get bulbous, (forget the technical name) like some scars can.
     
  11. Silicone helps a lot. You can get a bottle of pure dimethicone.

    all scar removers should be applied at least 6 weeks before any conclusions are made.
