Treating Incisions?

How long should I continue to treat my incisions with Vitamin E. My surgeon said to treat them but never said how long. I have been treating them around 2 weeks now. Thanks

Re: Treating Incisions?

Why are you "treating" them? They aren't going to show anyway after about 6 months.

I was told by my Surgeon to treat them! I had staples so that may be the difference but I'm not sure of that.

Oh well...I had dissolving sutures and you can't see a thing!
