Topical Scar Treatments


I get asked about the usefulness of scar creams all the time. Mederma is just one example of a scar cream which has onion extract as its main active ingredient. Studies have not shown that the onion extract works any better than just plain moisturizers, so it’s probably one to skip. If you are interested in treating an existing scar, head towards the silicone based creams or silicone scar sheets. There is science supporting the benefits of silicone. No cream is a miracle solution for scars, but a little improvement could be worth it. On the horizon are laser treatments that might be the closest thing we have to a miracle cure for scars. Stay tuned…
