How to get clear skin?

I got abdominal surgery three months back. After that, I was suffering badly with the scars. Tried many creams and ointments but no result was found and also consulted a local dermatologist but not satisfied with the treatment, as the scars stood like and looking ugly on me. I need a solution for my problem as soon as possible. Friends, Any solutions or suggestions available with any one of you to get rid of this? Any assistance is highly appreciated.


  • Have you consulted a plastic surgeon? That being said, I use sheets called "Scaraway," an ointment called "ScarZone" and Bioil. You can buy all of them on Amazon. If you keep the Scaraway patch on, the scars will eventually go down. I hate to say that it is time and good care (no tanning) that will help to make them fade and go down. The one on my throat is only five weeks old and I have kept the Scaraway on there for two weeks. It has already gone down and is fading. I also use a spray on tan product for tanning and that helps to make them less noticable. However, when I had a very bad C-section scar and had it for years, I had it removed by a plastic surgeon for about 2,000.
