Hi, im looking for a product that will clear my 10 year old acne/chicken pox scars or my arms and back. They arnt elevated but they are numerous large and tinted a light brown color which stands out on my pale white skin.
Ive looked at products such as silicon sheets, silicon gel and chemical peels. Ive read that chemical peels are effective on your face and go bad if not applied properly which worries me. Silicon sheets sound ok but from what ive heard people have had problems keeping them on and re using them. From what ive heard from silicon gel its more for surgical scars so im not sure if it will do what i want.
I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction and what specific product will help me rid the color from my scars because im clueless.
So far im leaning towards Kelo-coteScar Gel. Any input will be greatly appricated. Thanks in advance~
Kelo-CoteScar gel is a great product to try for both old and new scars, but have you considered trying a derma roller in conjunction with a scar cream? Derma rollers work great to get "the good stuff" into the deeper skin layers.
Your major concerns are acne and chicken pock scars. The derma roller helps in reducing the look of the scars, and helps smooth out pitted skin. The way that it does it is by stimulating collagen production with these itty bitty needle points that create itty bitty channels into the skin. If you check out the link below, you can see an actual illustration of how it actually works. For someone who has not used one before, and plans on using it for their arms and back, I would suggest a roller with 1.0 mm points. You can check it out the MicroneedleMTS Skin Roller here: http://bit.ly/bUHc9u
And you already know to use a scar cream, but I thought I throw out another one that has been really popular when using the rollers as well. The product is called Scar Esthetique Healing & Reduction Cream. Its packed with good vitamins and antioxidants to help minimize the scars you have. you can read more about it here: http://bit.ly/9dlbPf
As a plus, both the cream and roller have great reviews from "real" peeps just like you!
Acne scars has haunted many of us for years! Thankfully, we have a few things that can help us out with that now
When you say scab, I think you mean something is still in the healing stage. At this point you would not use the roller. The roller can only be used on unbroken skin. As long as the skin is sealed/closed you can use the roller.
Derma Rolling can be used on both the teeny and large sized scars.
If you have any other questions please let me know!
