Re: scar home

I would say try Mederma.

I used it on a very old indented scar, and it softened it.

Re: scar home

You may also want to look into the Epidermx microdermabrasion cream (home microdermabrasion). I've been using it for several months and have seen great results for my acne scar indents.

Re: scar home

thanks for the products......but, i was thinking of buying a chemical peeler.
I hear it works very well and fast, what do you all think?
also, what % of glycolic acid would be safe and also show results?

Re: scar home

Your best bet would be to try an at home chemical peel. As far as the glycolic acid (depending on how sensitive your skin is), you can use 30% with no problems.

Re: scar home

ok thanks, im gonna give it a try. Do you know how long it will take to see results with a 30% chemical peel?... I have mild scars.
Can you also tell me a specific product name to buy?

Re: scar home

Where would you get at-home chemical peel stuff?

Has anyone tried any of the cheap over-the-counter 'scar remedy' salves?
