I tend to accidentally burn myself whether I am cooking or doing my hair. I have several scars on each hand and I can tell you exactly where each of them came from... an oven rack, the curling iron, the straightener, a baking sheet, etc. A few of them are more noticeable than others and I wouldn't mind finding a way to reduce their appearance. At the end of February, I burned my pinky finger on an oven rack. I had quite a scab that didn't clear up as fast as I would have liked.

I began using DERMA-E Scar Gel on March 1, twice a day. This scar gel is paraben free and naturally helps reduce the appearance of scars, burns, and stretch marks. The formula of herbal ingredients helps break down scar tissue to encourage new skin growth. Click HERE to see the list of ingredients.
For new burns, it recommends applying the product twice daily for eight weeks, so I'm only about five weeks into the application process. But the burn has definitely healed and the skin is clearly in the process of new growth. There is no longer a scab and the skin surface is smooth. The scar gel comes in a 2oz container. The gel is clear and has a small order much like a natural lotion. I scoop out a pea-sized amount and apply it to my skin during my morning and bedtime routines. It absorbs quickly into the skin and isn't greasy or sticky. Often after a burn, there will be an indentation for a long time and then a scar. I really think this scar gel is helping to avoid that part of the process. I can not feel any dent in the skin where the burn was. My skin is smooth and soft and the dark, purplish spot is reducing in color every day.

I am thrilled with this skincare product and wish I would have had it to use on previous burns. It is easy to apply and since you use such a small amount, this product will last for a long time. Since you do have to scoop out the product, I recommend using a swab to get the product out or make sure your finger is clean to not contaminate the product.
