Does any one know what I can do to minimize deep scars? It looks like I need a patch of skin placed in that spot. I need it to be smooth. It makes me sad. Please any suggestions would be appreciated.

I used the on a bad scare on my face and it works but you have to use like the directions say. (10/18/2009)
Apply vitamin E to the scar or wound at least once a day for a few weeks, or until the wound has healed. For scars, you may need to apply vitamin E oil for one to two months for best results. Good luck.
A company called Derma E makes a scar gel which is great! I actually got a sample by writing the company as I just got surgery and am using it for my scar. It dries quickly as well and soaks in a lot better than vitamin E (which I also use).
Here are some reviews: http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemID=75229/Derma_E_Scar_Gel/Derma_E/Moisturizers
It's about $20 and a little goes a long way. They recommend using it for 8 weeks on a fresh scar and about 6 months on an older scar. Good luck!
Here is the company website: www.dermae.net
You can get a free sample package of their products for $4.95 shipping too.
You probably notice it more than others do! Try the suggestions and forget about it! You are you, you are not a scar! (10/20/2009)
