Hey there Liya,
You’re not alone, we all have scars on our legs and body parts which we regretfully scratched until it became permanent. Well, if no one else has this problem, I do! I’ve always had this huge scar on my legs and looks very ugly when I wear short pants/skirts.
We’ll ask readers of emmagem to help us:)
The best way and the first thing you should do to help you in your quest to remove scars of course, is to consult a dermatologist. Anything else, can come after that. They will consult you with the best way to remove scars on any body part. I guess, if you have the ka-ching($$$), you can opt for laser treatment wich will successfully remove all visible scars.
But, if you’re like me and have no $$$ for laser treatment, you can try home remedies or off the counter products. I’ve been asking around my friends on what to use to remove scars. Most of them point me to one product which can be bought at pharmacies off the counter. It is called Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Vitamin E Scar Serum. Long name eh, its quite pricey too! They have a whole range of products to help you remove scars and dark skin spots. This Palmer’s serum has Vitamin E on it which actually helps, according to some research and people. But some research states that it does not help a lot and some people might actually be allergic to it, depends on each skin type. Be careful when using creams like that, do a patch test first before using it on actual scars. I guess it does not really remove scars, but it can be minimized. Mederma is another brand of cream which states that they can remove scars better than Vitamin E can.
We live in Malaysia with grandmothers and aunties who usually will have many ways to do things differently at home. I’m sure you’ve heard some stories! This article suggests home remedies using tropical honey and onion extract.
