When Can You Start Using Scar Removal Ointment After Surgery?
Hello docFirst 1 week after papilloma surgery … when can I use dermatix to disguise post-operative injuries? Top attention and answers, thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
Topical medications to disguise scars like the one you use contain vitamin C and silicone which can brighten skin tone after inflammation. This drug should be used after the acute wound healing period has passed which is marked by a wound that has closed and a sign of inflammation that is reduced. You can use it about 1-2 weeks after surgery which results in injury.
Avoid using similar drugs on wounds that still appear wet, tissue in the nose and mouth, and the skin around the eyes. If the scar is annoying despite using the topical medication as directed, then you should do further consultation with a dermatologist.
That's all, hope you can help.
