Scars typically fade on their own, in time. But, if you want to speed up the process here are some options that may help minimize the appearance of scars:
Over-The-Counter Treatments. These products can be used to treat scars that are caused by cuts or acne.
Prescription Treatments. There are also certain prescriptions that may help. Often, treatments can include steroids or certain antihistamine creams. There are also pressure treatments, as well as silicone gel sheeting. Talk to your dermatologist for the best prescription treatment options.
Surgery. Treatments for deeper, more serious scars may include skin grafts, excision, dermabrasion, or laser surgery. However, if your scars are the result of a recent surgery, it may be best to wait at least a year before considering scar treatment options.
Injections. Steroid injections may help treat scars that aren’t flat, such as keloids or hypertrophic scars.
Vitamin E. Rub the oil from punctured gel caps into scars.
Olive oil. Apply 100% extra virgin) to scars at least twice a day. Within a week you should start to see scars and stretch marks starting to fade.
Vitamin K. Apply twice daily as a cream topically to scars.
Grapeseed extract, jojoba and almond oil. These oils are all effective scar treatments, especially when combined together.
Lavender oil. When used daily, lavender oil can be very effective in the complete removal of scars.
Flaxseed oil. Apply flaxseed oil on scars at least twice a day.
