  1. 1

    Apply aloe vera gel to the scar. Aloe vera can gradually heal, lighten and remove hyperpigmentation left from scars. Gently massage gel on the scar in circles first clockwise, then counter-clockwise, then across.

  2. 2

    Clean the wounded area daily. You are less likely to form a scar if there is no infection. Use soap and water to clean the wound every day.

  3. 3

    Keep the skin moist. Wounds heal faster if they are kept moist. Apply some antibiotic ointment to the wound several times a day to keep it moist and speed up the healing process.

  4. 4

    Limit sun light exposure to a minimum. Apply an (SPF) of 30 or higher sunscreen when going outdoors to protect your scar from sun exposure.

  5. 5

    Apply some silicone based scar treatment sheets. The treatment sheets will cause the scar to fade and soften over time. You can find silicone sheets at your local pharmacy.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't be discouraged if you don't see results immediately. It may take some time to fade the affected area.
