    Without surgery, there is not much you can do. However, take a Vitamin E capsule and for one week, once a day, massage the Vitamin E into the scar. Do this for one week, NO more, and then leave it alone for a week. When that week is up, massage the E into the skin for one week again, once a day.

    The reason for this is Vitamin E breaks down tissue. It will fade the scar by breaking it down, but remember that while it breaks the scar down, it also breaks the non-scarred skin down, too. The week that you do not rub in the Vit-E is the week that allows the skin to regenerate.

    The scar will not disappear completely, but it will fade and become less and less noticeable over time. Do not rub in the Vitamin E more than once a day, or more than a week, because it can cause even more scarring if you overdo it.

    Once the scar has faded you can use a foundation that matches your skin colour to cover it up!

    Take extra vitamins such as msm and flaxseed oil and vitamin c, along with this, also use a cream like retinol a. You can get this as a prescription from your doctor, or you can find it online (kind of pricey though). After a couple of months the scar will be hardly noticeable. The vitamins help the skin heal and aid in the production of collagen under the skin, while the retinol a cream aids the process of replacing the old skin cells on the surface.

    If you are white, use some white out, that should do the trick.
