Treating Big Thick Scars NSFW

Let's be honest here, I have been cut open and sewn back together twice on one side, and once on the other. I am very happy with the results of the surgery but I have also spent some serious time trying to ensure my big thick surgical scars heel as smooth, silvery and gorgeous as possible. And, not to toot my own horn, but I think I succeeded. My scars are flat, soft to the touch and beautiful.

I really saw a huge difference in how flat and light my scars were when I started using a body lotion with Retin A. My first foray was accidental - I wanted to lighten up some aging on my chest and I decided to go all "french facial" and work my way all the way down to my belly button. Then I noticed how insane the hand cream was working so I decided to try it on my chest when I was too lazy to go to the bathroom where the oil lives.

I've been using both products for about 3 months now and the results are down right remarkable. I vaguely recall my surgeon mentioning some stuff about retin-a to help with scarring but in the blur that was post surgery I never acted on it. Turns out the Kardashian dermatologist is also a big fan of retinol for treating scars. My best guess on how it works, based on my understanding of skin and healing and how retin A acts on the above is that it breaks down and exfoliates the scar tissue, leaving behind less discoloration and a smoother texture. Pay special attention to the scar that went all the way under my left breast, from the inside of the cleavage straight around the bottom to the other side. If you squint closely you can see the faintest silvery pink mark, but that's all that's left.

All I can say is that I have seen it work. Look at these gorgeous scars. So pretty, right?
