CVS Scar Gel Overview:
Affordability is a common concern among men and women who are searching for a skincare approach to help reduce the appearance of imperfections on their body, such as scars. CVS Scar Gel is a cheap scar gel that is promoted to reduce the appearance of surgery, acne, burn and stretch mark scars. The only issue with this formula is that it does not contain 100% silicone. Silicone when undiluted has been clinically shown to improve the look of scars when used as a topical approach. You can find several scar gels and even silicone sheets that claim they will improve the look and feel of scars in just weeks.
CVS Scar Gel may be intended for several types of scars but we could not find may information stating that this scar gel can improve the look and feel of Keloids.
A Keloid scar is injured skin that has developed fibrous tissue over a wound and continued to grow. Keloids can be potentially dangerous if left unattended to. Be sure to elect a scar gel that offers results or otherwise you may need to visit your doctor. To see a list of Keloid scar gels, refer to the grid below.
However, addressing Keloids is only half the battle. You will want to find a product that can be used on scars of all ages. This product states that it is suitable for both old and new scars, but should be applied for a longer period of time if using this product on older scars.
