Hi all,

I have some serious cuts on my leg and I'm worried about them scarring. Is there anything out there that can make the scars less noticable?

I know a few products claim to be able to do this, but does anyone have any expereinces or reccomendations for products?

Thanks,
Kirsty.

Massage with a good moisturiser apparently. No personal experience though.

Without being alarmist, the sooner wounds that might produce scars are seen by medical people the better. 'Clean' cuts eg scalpel wounds, properly stitched heal with less scarring than rougher wounds, especially if tissue has been torn out and/or are at stress/flex positions. Vitamin K and E creams can help. Get them looked at!

They are scalpel wounds and did not need stitching. There were 5 and they have all faded apart from the biggest one which I am worried will scar.

I will have a look at Vitamin K and E creams.

Thanks for all your replies.

Bio-oil did the trick for me.  Faded my surgery scars after a month and my stretchmarks from my boob-growth spurt after a week ...

Bio-oil. Only worked slightly for me, but other people I know swear by it.

regular deep massage of the scar with something oily / greasy such as vaseline. silicone sheets from the pharmacy can help. go and see your GP sooner rather than later if the scar appears to be over-growing as he/she may want to prescribe or use steroid ointments or injections

Massage totally helps.  Get some jojoba oil, and give your leg a good massage.  If you have a partner, make them do it.  But the best thing you can do is to let it heal naturally and keep massaging it.  Scalpel cuts will produce very fine lines when healed and should be barely noticable.
As long as you don't pick at it and let it heal nicely you should get away with very minimal to no scarring.
Alternative/Fetish model, great rates!!

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.

I have bought some bio-oil and massage it into the cuts twice a day which will hopefully work.

Thanks again =)
