Full Review
I have a thin 3.5 in scar just above my collarbone from a melanoma excision. I've been using the epi-derm sheets for just about two weeks. Not long enough to really know if they work but they stay on for a very long time and last 10+ days each. Because the scar is right at the base of my neck, I can't really cover it with clothes, but I really don't mind having the strip on, and I don't feel like it's all that noticeable. I bought the C-section strips and cut them to fit my scar. I'm torn between using these vs Mederma. I actually wear the strips more during the day and use the Mederma at night because I sleep on my stomach and don't want the strip to come off. (Although I have slept with one on and it really only starts to wrinkle when it's been used for several days.) I clean it every 12-15 hrs. If the scar isn't fading as well as I'd like I'll probably switch to wearing the gel sheets 24hrs a day. It's hard to be patient because I want this thing gone. Guess I'll just keep up what I'm doing and see what it looks like in another couple of weeks.

MakeMeHeal Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)

This Pre & Post Op Multinutrient Kit (no Vitamin E) has been designed specifically to help patients accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery (as well as general surgeries) by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for preparing the body for surgery and for helping one have a faster recovery. Taken in tablet/pill form starting anywhere from 1-2 weeks pre-op or several days before the surgery up until 30 days post-op, the Multinutrient Kit helps build and maximize your body’s tissue reserves of nutrients that are important for the healing process, helps speed up recovery by strengthening the body’s natural healing process, helping reduce swelling and bruising, supporting wound healing, promoting repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery, and by protecting the body from infection by enhancing the immune system defenses. Appropriate for both women and men of all ages.
