Anti wrinkle products for scars

Has anyone tried any anti wrinkle products for scars? I mean seems like it would be the same idea right, eliminating depressions in the skin? I know a lot of anti wrinkle products contain AHAs and such and I've heard of people using AHA for red marks and scars. I just thought of this bc I saw an Avon for "ANEW CLINICAL Deep Crease Concentrate with Bo-Hylurox" which is supposed to get rid of wrinkles and "fill" them in. Any comments? Thanks

Re: Anti wrinkle products for scars

Yea it is true that most products used to treat scars also help wrinkles. Iím not exactly sure if the opposite is true though (wrinkle products help scars). If your looking to get rid of scar though, you should stick to the methods made for treating scars. I found the best thing you can do is to get chemical peels. The deepness of the peel would depend on how deep your scars are. The peels will also help wrinkles.

Re: Anti wrinkle products for scars

Thanks for the input, guess i should have noted that I'm 20 and do not have wrinkes ha. I've tried the avon at home peel which helped fade some red marks but not the scars. Are these 30% peels that everyone on here has mentioned and purchased online classified as stong enough to help scars?

No, the 30% would not help scars. In fact, thereís nothing you can really use at home to help scars. You would have to go to a dermatologist or plastic surgeons office for stronger chemical peels.
