It is very rare that any of us get through life without scars. Whether it's a childhood injury, a clumsy moment in the kitchen, surgery or just the stretch marks that happen when your body very suddenly decides that you need boobs NOW, scarring is very difficult to avoid. Luckily, we found Scarology. Scarology is a three part treatment for scars that is unlike the standard creams and gels. I tried the product for a month to see what all the fuss was about.
I started out with 3 different scars. The first was a fresh scar (2 months from the date of injury) that was the result of a battle between myself and an x-acto knife (spoiler alert, the knife won). The second scar was a childhood scar from that one time that I decided to give a farm cat a bath, which was roughly 20 years old. The third scar was a lovely set of stretch marks on my hips (3 years old), because this baby's got back. The Scarology system isn't a magical potion that changes your scars over night, nor do they claim to be which is great! The system can take up to 12 months to show results in older scars but newer scars can take as little as 3 months to improve. Within that time that I used the system, the second and third scars didn't improve much, but I didn't expect that. The freshest scar however showed great improvement in the short time I was testing the product.
When I started, the scar was small but raised and red. Every morning I would wake up and put on the Scarology™ Natural Fruit Acid Skin Exfoliator and follow that with the Scarology™ Ultimate Scar Treatment Cream. At the end of my day I used the Scarology™ Ultimate Scar Treatment Cream and the Scarology™ Silicone Scar Sheets which I left on over night as instructed. The scar sheets were roughly 2.5 inches by 1.5 inches so for this scar I was cutting them into smaller strips which was great because I found that even though they are reusable I would get between 1-3 wears out of them before they were not staying on over night. After a month of the treatment I noticed the scar had flattened significantly, decreased in redness and overall looked smaller, which is huge since the system is supposed to be use for a minimum of 3 months.
Overall I am impressed! I have already recommended this product to friends who have recently had cesarean sections (Scarology's silicone scar sheets come in a size perfect for c-section scars). My only complaint was that the scar sheets didn't stay on through the night all the time but since you can always purchase extra it isn't that big of a deal.
