Talk to me about scar massage, please.

Talk to me about scar massage, please.

I've seen people on here say that they are massaging their scars. What exactly does that entail?

Like, circular motion? back and forth motion? How much pressure?

For how long and for how many times a day?

I've tried doing a somewhat firm pressure with circular motions and it kind of hurts. Is that normal?

I wouldn't do anything to your scars without your PS okaying it, and ideally he would show you how to massage. That way you know you are getting the benefits. :)

Having said that, I just rubbed in circular motions always in the direction of the heart with a firm, but not too hard (no pain) pressure. The only areas I rubbed with a more firm pressure were where I had lipo hard spots on my legs.

I hope this helps!
