    What are you ladies using to fade scars?

    Dear Ladies,

    I've seen lots of things that fade scars from special "plastic or acrylic" type adhesive sheets to mederma type creams. What have you tried that has worked if anything? Thanks!

      I have been using vitamin e oil. I do buy the soft gels and use one a day on the scars. The oil in the bottle works also but after a while it starts smelling. Hope this helps.

      My scars are barely noticeable and I haven't used anything.

      I haven't tried anything on my Mx scars.....since no one sees me naked and its not that much time that I spend in the mirror naked, the scars really don't bother me!!!!

      I used the silicone sheeting. My scars have healed nicely!

      have you tried EMU oil? I find that it works and is great for your skin. You can buy it on Amazon, ebay or Vitacost. I put on all over my body while still in the tube after I shut the shower. i added a little extra to my scars during the day.

      I haven't used anything, as my skin is really sensitive and I end up with hives from a lot of products. I suppose I am a good healer, because my scars are barely visible after only a year. I also had the best plastic surgeon :-)
