Is there any medication, gel/pills, I can take (preferrably gel) that i can use to take away scars. I don't want any laser treatment for that is ridiculously expensive!

A product called Bio-Oil. Your local Bed, Bath, and Beyond will probably sell it. Mine did. There are reviews on it how it got rid of pregnancy stretch marks and can help fade scars over time.

Vitamin E (taken as both a supplement or rubbed into your skin) works well. I used this method after I had surgery, and I just broke open a vitamin E softgel everyday and rubbed it on.


Retin-A [a prescription] increases the turnover rate of your skin's dead cells. It's pretty much an all-purpose product, because it also reduces/prevents wrinkles and heals acne.


Acne scars can be reduced/prevented by using salicylic acid, and I've put spot treatments on cuts [it'll sting, but it seems to work for me] to minimize scarring there, too. Using Neosporin also helps your skin heal faster & prevents scars.


Remember too, that most scars fade significantly with time, and you notice them far more than other people will. I promise =]

Well, there's no way to completely remove scars. You can only minimize the appearance of it.

When I had to get stitches, my dermatologist told me to rub Vitamin E on the scar every day...it definitely minimized the appearance of it.


I also found home remedies, such as:
* A mixture of sandalwood paste and black gram paste helps reduce the intensity of scars if started early. This is effective Home Remedy for Scars
.
* Rubbing your skin with ice cubes helps to tighten the skin.

* You can use cucumber and lemon juice on your scars. This is another good Home Remedy for Scars

* Vitamin E oil when applied on the scarred skin may do wonders for your skin.

* To prevent deepening of the scars, apply aloe vera gel, cod liver oil or vitamin E oil.

* Applying cocoa butter is also a good remedy in getting rid of the scars. This is also effective Home Remedy for Scars

(Notice they also tell you to use Vitamin E.)

*** I've heard Mederma works well, but I've never tried it.
