Do Scar Creams Work? Yes… Some Do!
Find 4 That Worked For Me Below!
My name is Sue JonesDrew and trust me, I feel your frustration with unsightly scars. As a mother and wife I know the pressures to look good each and every day. And as a car accident victim I suffered many wounds that have since scarred over. Scars tell a story of damaged skin and an event that caused such trauma to the body. Scarring indicates that the wound has healed. In that sense, it’s like your body is telling you it’s put the past behind and it’s ready to move on. Here is a before and after of one of my scars after using my recommended scar removal cream.
But the body and the mind are two different creatures and I battled the emotion behind ugly scars for a very long time and tried everything under the sun to get rid of them.
While physical scarring is rarely a health concern, it can affect one’s confidence. And on those summer days, or in the intimacy of one’s bedroom, they’re unflattering reminders where the body has been and can reduce once-sexy skin to an exterior that’s, well, scarred.
A natural scar treatment fades scars, including those that are still in formation and scars that are well-established. Having said that, a developing scar, typically within the first six months of the wound, stands the best chance of dramatic fading. Before I explain more let me show you a few products I tried in the chart below. I did my best to choose categories that would make sense to you and these are my honest rankings of products I tried.
HERE ARE 4 PRODUCTS THAT WORKED FOR ME
What to Look For in a Scar Treatment Cream
Scar treatment creams are products that incorporate antioxidants and botanicals with patented peptides like ProCollOne+ to stimulate natural collagen production, slough off dead skin cells and replace them with healthy, normal and, notably, undamaged skin cells.
A scar removing cream involves the subcutaneous, dermis and epidermis tissue. Working with the skin’s 28-day regeneration process, it’s designed to strike a delicate balance between the skin-strengthening collagen I and the skin-healing collagen III.
The latter point cannot be understated, because too much collagen can add size and discoloration to an already developing scar. Yet if there’s not enough collagen as the scar develops, the scar will be vulnerable to reinjury.
To achieve this balance of collagen production, it’s advisable to choose a scar reduction cream formulated with patented peptides, such as ProCollOne+, which is clinically proven to stimulate natural collagen production by up to 1,190%.
Also consider that antioxidants and natural moisturizers, including niacinamide, beta glucan and hydrolyzed soybean fiber can gently expedite the skin regeneration process, for optimum skin health and a vibrancy that can’t be achieved with laser treatments or steroids.
Should you be interested in a scar removing cream, consider Dermefface FX7™ Scar Reduction Therapy by Skinception™, which in addition to meeting the prerequisites described above, is reported to show visible reduction of scars after just four weeks of use. Here is my review of the top four scar creams on the market today:
DERMEFFACEFX7 #1 SCAR CREAM: HERE’S WHY.
UPDATE: Lisa D’Amato, winner of Americas Next Top Model All Star’s thanks Dermefface for saving her career! Read about what it did for her here.
The #1 reason it ranks #1 is this product gave me the best results. Period. The second reason is I value a doctor endorsment like Dr. David’s endorsement of the product. I have not seen that on many if any products. You can read more about that here. The Skinception name offers plenty of value. As a general rule of thumb, the greatest savings with any Skinception product tend to be had with orders of three months or higher, often with gifts or extra product added as incentive to go long-term.
I think that’s wise, because skin problems like stretch marks and wrinkles aren’t fixed overnight. Skinception products show noticeable results in a reasonable amount of time, but the most dramatic improvements can take up to six months,
Skinception offers a one month supply of Dermefface at $59.95. Not exactly a bargain, but when you consider the luxurious formulation of Skinception products, which most clients rave about, seems a reasonable purchase. This includes both a loofah and a microderm exfoliator.
As with most Skinception products, the best value is for a longer term commitment. The Gold Package is a three month supply of Dermefface, the two exfoliators and a $25 gift card to Natural Health Source. The cost? $129.95
For the most value with Dermefface, go for the Platinum Package, which is a six month supply, two microderm exfoliators and the loofah, the Natural Health Source gift card and a savings of $160 off a one month supply. The cost of the Platimum Package, at $199.95, is a very respectable value, and we think, should be viewed as an investment to visibly fade scarring with a proven product.
REVITOL #2 SCAR CREAM:
Revitol is a name you may have heard of. It has been on the market for some time now. Revitol is an effective scar cream and is comparable with DermeffaceFX7 but the Skinception brand has the clinical proof on it’s ingredients. Revitol Scar Cream was by far the second best scar cream based on results of my use. It took longer to see results and the difference was not as obvious as DermeffaceFX7.
Although cheaper than DermeffaceFX7, I stand by the famous phrase, ” You get what you pay for”. Simply based on results I recommend spending the little bit extra and choosing my recommended scar cream product. Revitol is by no means a bad product and I did see results. It was simply not as effective as Dermefface.
MEDERMA #3 SCAR CREAM:
I would not call Mederma a household name, nor do they have the product link like a Skincetion brand. I did see results from this product on one of my bigger scars but i had to go through a lot of cream to get any results. I did not particularly like the feel of this cream but that may simply be my personal feelings.
Mederma Scar Cream can work on all types of scars as can the other top 3 porduct you find here that I tried. You really can’t go wrong with any of the products I list here because like I said, I did see scars deminish with the use of Mederma however I feel the results I myself saw were better with both DermeffaceFX7 and Revitol.
I suggest ordering mutiple units of Mederma should you wnat to try this product because as I mentioned it took a lot more cream to see results than the top 2 products.
SCARINEX #4 SCAR CREAM:
Like the rest of my top 4 products, I would not have it listed for you unless I saw at least some sort of results. You can deduce from it ranking #4 on my list though that I saw the least amount of difference in my scars from usin Scarinex
The results I did see also came from using this product a lot ad for the longets period of time. Certainly not my #1 recommended product for a scar cream, Scarinex can work but must be applied without fail on the prescribed basis and for months. I used it on one of my smaller scars and I also noticed that after stopping using it the scars evident appearance did come back.
