Dh Scars

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any success getting rid of their dh scars? I am trying to find a natural remedy that will get rid of these red marks on my face. If I don't have makeup on they are very noticeable... :(

I have been using silicone scar sheets. They are worn all night. They help scars heal with consistent and prolonged use. I do notice a difference but it is a slow process.

I also take collagen tablets. Hopefully to rebuild collagen in the skin. I take it several times a day.

DMAE in a serum form applied to the face is also supposed to help healing. I am using this too.

I also take Alpha-Lipoic Acid as a vitamin supplement and be sure to get enough vitamin C as C is needed in addition to protein to build collagen.

Vitamin B is also helpful to the skin.

I also got a prescription for Retin-A from the Dr.

It stimulates collagen production in the skin and is a vitamin A derivative.

I still have scars.

But I'm fighting them like hell.

And lastly, water water water

Thanks for all your suggestions :) I definitly drink a good deal of water-so that's a plus! I have never heard of silicone sheets-sounds interesting, I will definitly look into that as well as the DMAE serum. Now I just need patience ;)

I get the silicome sheets at CVS Pharmacy...CVS brand.

The DMAE serum comes from a health food store.

There are also DMAE oral supplements to take.

I did that for a while.

I will be interested to know if you think any of it helps.
