What items to buy to clear hyperpigmented scars
« on: September 05, 2012, 02:13:10 AM »
Hi.
I was wondering what items I should buy in order to heal or lessen the appearance of hyperpigmented/darkened scars from burns.

Thanks in advance.

Where do you have the scars? Are they raised or indented? How large is the scarred area?

The scar is circular and located on my forhead. It is not indented or raised and it is about a half inch in diameter. It is darkened and red-ish in color and about 2 years old.

I recommend a 1.5 mm dermastamp with 35 needles and the 0.1 % Tretinoin cream (we sell it). The scar will get red after stamping and Tretinoin will also make it temporarily red but it will diminish the redness of the scar eventually. Stamp it densely every three weeks and apply Tretinoin every second day.
