I am a scar factory. Well, a stretch mark factory. During big bug’s pregnancy I got a ton of stretch marks. I didn’t get the normal pregnancy complication like morning sickness I got things that are more on the rare side. Anywho, I know stretch marks aren’t one of those rare things. Plenty of women get stretch marks when they are pregnant. I think I have them everywhere though. My torso is wrapped in them and I even got some on my calfs.
When I first got accepted to try Dr. Max Powers Advanced Scar Therapy Serum I thought “Yay! Maybe they will help my stretch marks”. Then, I decided it may be better to test this on my arm first. I didn’t need subject you all to my stomach. The makers of the Scar Serum say,
“The Dr. Max Powers Advanced Scar Therapy was created to promote cell renewal in existing scars while rebuilding collagen. The Scar Serum has also been proven to reduce hyper pigmentation. The main ingredient of the Scar Serum is organic rosehip oil which has been proven to be effective in the regeneration of skin and provide results in the treatment of burns and scars. It contains rich antioxidants, fatty acids, and Vitamin E which can also help diminish the effects of aging“.
For a few weeks now I have been applying the Scar Serum to my right arm. I noticed as you apply the Scar Serum it kind of looks like a soap residue as you are rubbing it on but that quickly disappears. It also has a slight rose smell that doesn’t last long. Last year, I attempted country fried steak (My easy chicken cordon bleu was so much safer!) while it did end up tasting good in the process I burnt my arm up. Not fun at all. Over the past few weeks, to my naked eye, I seem to think the scars have been lightening, but I did take a before picture just to be sure. Drum Roll…
I know the photo lighting isn’t the exact same. I’m not sure why that is. I took the picture around the same time of day, but there really is a difference. The makers of Dr. Max Powers Advanced Scar Therapy Serum say you should “Gently rub into scar 3-4 times per day for 8 weeks on new scars; 3-4 times per day for 3-6 months on existing scars”. This is an old scar and I’ve only been using the product a few weeks. I can only imagine the improvement I would see in 6 months. Once I have used the entire bottle of the Scar Serum I will post an updated picture. I hope it’s a good one!
Do you have any bad scars? What did you do to get them? Have you found anything that works to improve the appearance of them?
Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
