don't know about the palmers... i've been using bio oil after showers, and otherwise the elastoplast 'scar reducer' sheets. used them for the small incisions after a minor op on my arms and they totally disappeared about 6 months after... they stick to you and you replace them every 24 hours, i love them and would recommend to anyone- not cheap at £20 from boots but you can get them for about £10 on ebay...
bio oil's easy though, so been using it after showering and i'm going on holiday in two weeks so will only be using it then cause i'll be in an out of the pool.....

Hi girls

Thanks for that...will have to order some.

Yes I had heard about the smell as well but a small price to pay for invisible scars and a product I (hopefully) am not allergic to!!! sigh.....

:kiss:

I got the Palmers serum from Superdrug, but I have seen it in Savers stores too. It sdoes pong a bit! But I've found it useful on other scars.

I've got pure Vitamin E oil with no additives from the health shop because I think sometimes all the stuff they put into bio oil and creams can be irritants and aggrivate the skin. I have sensitive skin and have to buy allergy/oil free sun tan lotion otherwise my skin just comes up in red rashes (Piz Buin is great!) So when I'm past my 6wk mark I will be using the Vit E oil on my scars. It doesn't smell, goes on lovely although it is quite thick so use sparingly, warm up with your hands first then put on :)

I use the vit e oil as well, bio oil kept giving me spots.
The vit e oil has been fine for me, my scars are very faint now. xx

Yep, so far I've used it on stretch marks & scars from being burnt, shaving & general clumsy-ness :LOL: It's been great, my stretch marks are hardly there & most scars are tiny now, one or two have totally gone because I kept on at them with it. Totally recommended.

Have you tried Emu Oil? ~ its great for scarring, increasing healing time, helps skin, anti-aging & a host of other benefits. Its also great at preventing the irritation/allergies/infectioms etc that bio oil causes.. I love it for my stretchmarks, scars, breasts, tummy, & face!

yes bio oil helped with my scars after my gastric band operation.. 6 months i noticed they hard turned the same colour as the rest of my skin around them.. making them less obvious.
you will never totally get rid of a scar but certainly fading it is good.
I am using bio oil now.. I can sometimes have sensitive skin to certain creams but am ok with bio oil. x
Life is what you make it, smile at the world and the world smiles at everyone else instead!
