Topical Scar treatment

Can i check if anyone is using Mederma?Or a cream called Elicia, are they useful?

And also could retin_A gel n AHA products make scars fade away with long term use?Thanks.

What type of scarring are you talking about? Pitted scarring? If so Mederma will not help. Also, most people have said that Elicina has not helped them either. Retin-A products may help regenerate collagen but I wouldn't expect dramatic results. You might want to check out the FAQ thread and you can also do a Search on the products you asked about. Hope that helps. smile.gif

Do you think Retin-A would help if the scarring is very shallow? I'm thinking of asking my derm for some just to give it a try...

I've used Retin-A for acne over several long periods of time. It has never made an improvement on my shallow or deep scars. My 2 cents.
