Salicylic acid for scars


I wonder if anyone has had success with high concentration SA creams for treating scars (hypertrophic ones are what I have, 2 large ones from surgery rather than acne). Usual acne creams with SA has a low concentration, 5 % or something. Wart removers have much higher.

(If this has been covered, feel free to merge threads and I'm sorry for the inconvenience.)

Yea, i used to use it all the time. It diminishes superficial scars and is very good for your skin in my opinion, just don't overdo it because it IS an acid and does have potential to disrupt aging regarding the hayflick limit. That problem is, however, still theoretical though.
