Mederma?

You do have some scarring, but I think most of it is PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). That's the dark spots. They will fade on their own, in about 6-12 months. Mederma might hurry it up a bit, but I've never had much success with it, and I don't think I would ever use it on my face. Seems like a product that would break me out...which would defeat the purpose, because the biggest thing about PIH, is stopping the breakouts, so your healing can finally catch up. Rather than Mederma, I like Vitamin C serum for fading PIH.

i'm thinking i would apply the mederma first, then moisturizer, spf.... the mederma might cancel out the spf anyway. it is important to put sunblock on scar tissue as that is new skin and will burn.

mederma does work. i and my kids have used it for various scars. my daughter used it on her cesarean section scar.
glad it's working for you!

Yeah i seen it, i just can't afford to buy another tube right now. I believe i will do it the way you suggested applying it, thank you! It really is working. A lot were newer and i didn't even realize, so that's why it's fading more quickly. I'm really happy.

Ambi cream is meant for fading scars. I've never used it but I've been eyeing it lol
