ScarScore’s Top Post-Procedure Sunscreen Recommendations:

Scars are susceptible to unnecessary hyperpigmentation (permanent darkening) if exposed to the sun’s UV rays. This is especially true during the first year of healing. Make sure to always protect your healing scar from the sun’s harmful effects.

ScarScore’s Top Post-Procedure Antibiotic Ointments:

Post-Procedure antibiotic ointments serve two purposes. They keep the healing wound moist which has been clinically proven to optimize healing and scar quality. They also contain antibacterial products to help minimize the chances of infection. Prolonged usage of these products (more than 2-3 weeks) is known to cause hypersensitivity in some people. If you’re experiencing increasing itchiness and rashing around your wound, consult your health care professional to discuss the possibility that your antibiotic ointment may be the cause. Many practitioners suggest the use of plain Vaseline instead of antibiotic ointments as recent research supports that it is equally effective and less unlikely to cause hypersensitivity reactions.
