As it seems, my readers are curious about scar treatments, so I brought you my review of the #1 cosmetic for those nasty bits, according to the internet (ahah)!
Last year, I had a pneumothorax (click here if, like me (before I had it), you have no idea what this is :p). So, they had to open a tiny whole in my chest so that they could put a catheter to suck the air out!
I got a little scar, that wouldn't bother me as much if it wasn't right there on my chest - always visible during the summer!
The nurse that was assigned to me in the first couple of days, advised me to use the gel Mederma! A little tiny gel that soothes the skin and all but doesn't really do much!
The wound started to heal, but it was still really red and not properly healed!
Months later, my scar was as in the first photo of the collage above. That's when I decided to go on an internet quest to find the best product for post-operation scars and it all came down to SCARPRIN! I ordered it and have been using it for three months!
100% medical-grade silicone has been clinically shown to help reduce the appearance of all types of scars (...). The medical-grade silicones found in Scarprin have also been formulated for all skin types and tones. These medical-grade silicones include: Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, and Cyclopentasiloxane - (...) are not only safe and effective silicones used for scar removal treatment, but they also have the ability to help remove redness, swelling and pain from old and new scars.
This silicone gel has the exact texture you're thinking about: all slippery and smooth - silicone-like! And I can tell you that everything stated above is true! Before I started using this, my scar hurt sometimes, it was itchy and swollen and very red. Now, as you can see, it's much "flatter", everything went down - super comfortable! :)
The results, healing-wise, are pretty clear in the pictures, right? It was money well spent that will always be worth it! (As to old scars, I can't tell if it works well, since I have none.)
And, if your scar is tiny like mine, this will last a long time! It's been three months and there's way more than half left in the bottle! I love it! :) I think I won't be needing the second package, since it's nearly healed, but, if I needed it, I wouldn't even think twice about re-purchasing!
Another peculiar thing is its pump system dispenser. I'm such I'm just silly and probably a lot of you have seen this before, but I have not! It's just like that... Just a tiny little thing that must suck the product out! And it works perfectly, I tell you! Not one pump without product! ;)
Do you have scars? How did you get them and how do you treat them? Have you ever heard of SCARPRIN? Does it spike your interest?
