      Depends on the type of scars you are referring to. I've used both for raised scars and I found hiruscar better for massaging so the scars flatten out faster over time. Mederma is more to slather on and leave to dry as I found excessively rubbing will cause the gel to coagulate and rub off like the residue you see after using an eraser on paper.

      If you've got flat but hyperpigmented scars then most drugstore whitening serums would work if you're on a budget. I like to blot a glob on my acne scars overnight for intensive whitening.

      • I got into accident last year and got ugly scars on my foot.
        I have been using essential oils for about 3 months and the scars visibly lightened in tone. Some areas also fade closer to skin color.

        • Heard from my friends that silicone gels can be used and help with wounds or scars healing. It encourages collagen to form and aids in faster recovery. Chemical peels and dermabrasion are just as popular.

            chiaberry, is mixing the vit c crystal w aloe vera gel, how much of the c crystal is recommended?
            suitable for morning or night use right?

            btw, i read that it must be l-ascorbic, but the now crystal says ascorbic acid, is it the same thing? thks

              Hi dear, I myself use Now Ascorbic Acid Crystal with good result. I read from EDS forum saying it is LAA, btw.
              I mix mine with purified water freshly on palm before applying.

                      hi lemonlimez! sorry for the late reply, just check the forum.

                      what I use is this: Now Foods, Vitamin C Crystals, 8 oz (227 g) - iHerb.com

                      Errr....I just take a PINCH, then add h20 around 50cents size on palm, mix, then tap-tap on face and front neck. hehe...I don't create a big batch for week.
                      I use 2x a day (some may say overkill but yeah). Use sunscreen in the morning, since it is an acid, it has exfoliating effect, might burn and sting on use meaning your crystal is too much. or your skin can't take high percentage-low pH. take it easy...the recommended usage is 5%-20% anw.

                      oh, it is drying so please use hydrating cream after good wait time (5-10mins, or better 30mins wait time).

                      ETA:

                        • Figure out what kind of scars are on your skin.
                          Try topical treatments for atrophic scars.
                          Get a chemical peel.
                          Avoid creating new scars.

                            • I am extremely unhappy with the unpleasant acne scars on my face, though I am no longer suffering from acne now. The acne scars have brought my self confidence down, for I believe they have negative influence on the texture of our skin. I really do not know what to do and where to go. I heard about fraxel treatment from Pitangui clinic in Korea which is good for acne scarring and large pores. Any suggestions?

                                How about trying essential oils? Frankincense and Lavender are good for lightening scars.
