Recently I tried Skinuva Scar Healing Cream on my C-section scar. I had high hopes — it has medical-grade synthetic growth factors, in addition to collagen-stimulating ingredients like vitamin C and peptides. Unfortunately, cutting to the chase here for a moment, I didn’t see any results.
One thing I should mention is that my scar is a keloid (raised scars are typically classified as either keloid or hypertrophic scars). Both types are the result of excess collagen production, which tends to become piled up as firm fibrous lumps typically 1-2 mm, but some may become as large as a few centimeters. In most cases, the overgrowth stops after a period of time, and some will become flattened and a bit smaller over the course of years.
In my case, the Skinuva Scar Healing Cream didn’t work as well as silicone scar sheeting did, but that’s probably because a collagen-stimulating cream wasn’t what my scar (the result of excessive collagen production) needed in the first place.
So I don’t recommend Skinuva Scar Healing Cream for raised scars, but I’ll go ahead and say it’s fine for anyone with non-raised scars.
