Let’s Just Get to the Point:
Whether you want to prevent a new scar from forming or help minimize the look of an old, existing scar, this gel does the trick, with a cosmetically elegant formula that’s easy to apply and use.
If You Want to Know More:
Let’s face it: Scars are a fact of life. Whether it’s a reminder of a skinned knee from a childhood, a burn sustained in the kitchen or a C-section scar, we all have a few. Happily, there’s the ScarAway Scar Diminishing Gel ($36) to keep said scars from being quite so noticeable.
Using patented—and doctor-recommended, we might add—advanced silicone technology, this gel works equally well to prevent new scars from forming and fade old scars, even those that are raised and/or discolored, anywhere on the body. (By keeping the outer layer of skin extra hydrated, silicone makes scars appear softer, smoother and flatter.) The rollerball applicator makes using this clear gel easier and less messy than many other scar treatments; it dries quickly without feeling goopy, greasy or sticky.
I’ve tried lots of treatments in an attempt to fade a dark scar on my forearm—the result of a burn incurred while making quesadillas after an Alanis Morissette concert (don’t ask). I’ve found other creams and patches messy and annoying to use, which is problematic because you need to use silicone treatments diligently for at least a few months in order to see results. A quick swipe delivered the exact amount needed without any mess or residue. Also nice: You can apply sunscreen and makeup directly over it. While I’ve only been using it for a little over a week, it seems to be working, and it’s so easy to use that I’m most definitely going to make it a part of my daily routine. Got a scar that’s bothering you? Get this.
