What's the best over-the-counter treatment for small raised scars?

Recommended Posts

I tried mederma off and on for years and it never seemed to do much. I heard silicone can get rid of them. Should I use scarzone cream or silicone scar sheets? or something else?

I heard using a 10% Alpha Hydroxy Acid such as Glycolic acid can really help exfoliate the top layer of the skin and shed the dead skin cells helping the scars to smooth out and be similar to the surrounding skin. It probably wont go away cmopletely but alot have had success in helping to smoothen them out and make the appearance better. I've just ordered a 10% AHA so i'll see how it goes and update! :)
