Brushing for scars

I was just updating on my "brushign treatment". I am having great results, my face is continously improving and its only been 3 weeks. This is doing more than 20 treatments of microdermabrasion...unbelieveable! Anyone else have any updates? (reply)

Re: Brushing for scars

I only scrubbed once about a week ago. It took forever to heal. It got really dry and started peeling. Not sure I see a difference. I just want to know if I'm doing it right. I just splashed water on my face and scrubbed the spot with just water. Then I applied some cream similar to vaseline and waited. How often should I scrub? once a week?

Re: Brushing for scars

I always heard the same story!...How long do you brush for???? a week to heal??? do not scrub that HARD ...is not necessary. Scrub until is read and you could feel some pain (you do not have to bleed). I also used the St. Ives scrub afterwards. Trying doing it once a week and increase a treatment every week until you get to 3x per week. DO NOT SCRUB UNTIL YOU BLEED. Use a Moisturizer afterwards.

Re: Brushing for scars

Well I scrubbed again last night and I think my skin is more use to it now. Maybe the first time is just the hardest. I scrubbed for like 3-5 min.. I'm not sure. I used one of those facial brushes. You can get them anywhere like target or walmart in the beauty supply section. St lives is a little to harsh on my skin so I use cetaphil w/baking soda. It's about the same.. just more gentle.

You can get a face brush from the Body Shop for $5.

Re: Brushing for scars

If you can't find a "face brush", you can buy a baby's hairbrush. The ones meant for infants. It's about the same softness, and sometimes cheaper. Definitely easier to find.

Re: Brushing for scars

I love the face brushing. I had really bad acne and that is gone but the scars remain. My skin was red because I just got done with accutane. I have only been doing the brushing for a week and like what I am seeing. At first I scrubbed kind of hard and bled. I was scared because it was red but it healed in around 5 days and in its place was new skin. Now I just scrub lightly daily adn afterwards put neosporin. Hopefully my red marks and pitted scars will look a lot better in a month!

Re: Brushing for scars

I have heard alot of good things about this. Could someone please explaing how this is done. Do you brush only the scars? What direction do you brush? Down? Up? or Circular? Do you put a cleanser on the brush? Please someone give the instruction. I am very interested in trying this, but do not want to mess up my face.

Re: Brushing for scars

One way you can get rid of them is what I did. Take a towel, get it damp with water, and scrub the scar evenly until it's red and starts to ooze. Don't go far enough for it to bleed. After that clean it off and apply a generous amount of neosporin; keep it bandaged with a bandaid the whole time for about 2 weeks. The only time it was in plain air was when I was changing it and in the shower. I changed it twice a day morn/night.
