Well I just got my ScarAway sheets today and cut one up and stuck it on straight away. As each week goes by Ill give updates. I wanted to post this because I have yet to see a proper review of it by an asian, and this is important for any dark skinned people using it as it affects different skin tones differently, and may affect the overall result.
The scar is half an inch, very dark brown and slightly raised on my nose. It is VERY noticable. There is a deep closed comedone underneath it that I will be trying to get rid of with epiduo during the spring holiday (giving me three whole weeks to hide from the world and focus on my skin) I thought Id start the sheets straight away as the scar will still be there regardless of when I start trying to purge the comedone underneath.
Can I just say that I think these sheets will last me 6 months or more because I can cut them up and place them on the scar without using even a quarter of one sheet. It's also important to keep it on as much as possible, clean it once a day WITH SOAP and letting it dry before putting it back on. To those struggling with it staying on, I use micropore tape (which is breathable and stick a strip of it on either side of the sheet so it doesnt move while not completely covering it and making the sheets breathability uneffective.
I hyperpigment very easily and my marks are always a dark brown colour, taking up to 8 months or a year to fade (vigilant sun protection and vitamin c/licorice application greatly speed up the process by atleast a month or so) I currently slap makeup on everyday to cover them because they're so noticable and on my nose, meaning I now am afraid of sleepovers, holidays and any social event lasting longer than 12 hours. The scar that im treating with ScarAway however is a REAL SCAR (makes me sad as its so dark and i thought once my hyperpigmentation was gone i could go makeup free) I wanted to ask if anyone has had any sort of treatment for hyperpigmented hypertrophic nose scars before and what the outcome was? Ill probably be looking into it in a few months time.
ILL BE POSTING MORE PICTURES SOON AND UPDATING WEEK BY WEEK, MAYBE SOONER IF I SEE ANY RESULTS.
