Let Dr. Sheffield's Scar Gel help you fade scars from acne, cuts, scrapes, bites, stitches, and burns. It also works great on fading stretch marks. In addition to fading the appearance of the scars, it works to improve the texture of the scar and makes the area softer. The gel works on both new scars and old scars, just be sure the wound has healed before applying this product. Apply the gel three times per day for eight weeks on new scars, and for approximately three months on older scars. The gel formula enables it to be easily absorbed into the skin.
