For those who feel self conscious about their scars, there are now
various creams, lotions, and care to help them heal and fade away.
The way a scar heals depends on your age, genetics, and where the scar
is. And the longer the scar has been around, the harder it is to erase
completely. Scars that are new and red are more likely fade than older and pigmented scars, which usually require a trip to your dermatologist.
Constant dedication to scar maintenance is also essential to reducing its appearance, but you don't have to spend a lot to help with the healing process. Most basic ingredients found in many creams are sufficient to treat scars. And keeping it out of the sun and from getting infected will also do the trick. Below are some recommendations you might want to consider for your scar treatment:
Mederma Clinically proven to soften, smooth and reduce the appearance of scars, apply this after a fresh scab falls off to heal the skin and prevent a scar. Apply at least four times a day to drastically reduce the color and texture of a scar.

The oil is packed with plant extracts and vitamins (including exfoliating vitamin A). Rub into existing scars to reduce the redness and lumpiness.
