What have you found are the best ways to reduce/lighten scars?

mederma|||Well, first off, i would recommend staying out of the sun unless you%26#039;re wearing sunscreen.

Also, I have a bad scar on my finger and my doctor told me to use aveeno and i find it helps.

Most scars fade with time though|||Vitamin E. Purchased it at Walgreens in capsule form, puncture %26amp; rub it on the burn scars and they faded.

How do you cure scars?

i have a scar on my left forearm that is round. it is like a bump(not level with skin). how do i flatten it and cure it?|||uh you can%26#039;t cure it, but you can lighten it by using Maderma. you can find it in the drug store.|||scars make you human|||essential oil scar heal blend. also exfoliate it often. it will never be gone, but the oil blend should fade and soften/level it out quite a bit. any aromatherapy shop should carry a premade blend. I have many scars that have been reduced/faded by this method.|||Scars are areas of skin that already healed and left a mark. So you can%26#039;t cure it. But you mean getting rid of scars? Um, I don%26#039;t know.|||Mederma. You can buy it at Grocery stores, Target, WAlmart. It works as long as you apply it on a regular basis.|||There%26#039;s no way to cureor completely get rid of a scar, but putting bio-oil on it will reduce it in size and protrusion.

Which cream or cleanser is best to get rid of acne scars?

tell me where i can get it, the price, and does it actually work?if so, how long? also, i would like a cleanser to reduce the size of pores .thank you.|||proactive

Person with loads of scars, how would you think they got them?

If you saw someone with loads of scars (mainly staright lined and in all different directions but mainly horizontal, some vertical, some diagonal) what would be your first thought? How would you think they got the scars?|||a lot of people are saying Self-inflicted but the scars are straight and horizontal at that.

If the wounds are self inflicted then I don%26#039;t see how the person would have been able to keep his or her hand steady unless they did it fast. And then to create many scars would mean there is a lot blood loss when nobody is around. This is very dangerous for obvious reasons.

So I don%26#039;t believe it was self-inflicted

Cat and Dogs would cut you in a way that%26#039;s mainly diagonal, so I wouldn%26#039;t think it%26#039;s an animal.

Now a knife opponent would cut people in straight horizontal lines, this makes the most sense to me

I would assume that the person was recently in a knife fight or went up against an opponent who was carrying a bladed weapon of somekind and like to strike horizontally.|||It would scare me at first. Why the scars and why so many?

It%26#039;s self harm as some of the users have stated. It%26#039;s more than just self-harm. It%26#039;s also reassurance, but for what exactly?

Scars also represents pain and sorrow. The person couldn%26#039;t talk about it, but just keeps scarring themselves with some sharp object to calm themselves down.

It%26#039;s also a sign of attention. The person needs help for assurance.|||depends where, if it is on the front it is possible that it is self harm, maybe even torture. if it is on the back than it is more likely to be torture, or abuse or whatever. but it sounds like if anyone was doing it is just doing straight lines, possibly across each other , showing self loathing and a lot of boredom.|||Self harm? Dunno - I%26#039;d have to see them in person.

I have a massive scar on the inside of my wrist which looks like a suicide attempt but it was actually a really deep cat scratch. I forget it%26#039;s there but I often see people staring!|||They could of done it themselves, however i am absolutely covered in scars all from machinery at work over many years.|||Maybe they have a cat? I have a cat and it scratches me all the time.|||maybe an animal mauled them..|||that is an interesting question.... self harm is the only one i can think of...|||self harm would be my 1st guess.

How does the joker gets his scars in "The Dark Knight"?

Early in the movie he says that his Father does it to him.

Then later to some one else he says it was due to his wife.

Any ideas why he does that and how does he get those scars in the first place.|||The answer is the Joker%26#039;s face was disfigured with a razor. The details of how it occured, however, are questionable--since the source is the Joker, the stories regarding his father and wife cannot be taken as the truth. But, since the Joker cleverly manipulates the truth throughout the film, it can be assumed that some element of truth exists in his story...and the only constant is the razor. It can also be assumed that it was done by someone close to the Joker (i.e., himself or his father), because both sides of the face are disfigured along the mouth line, but no other scars exist...this indicates that after one side of his mouth was disfigured, the culprit could move onto the other side of the mouth without a great deal of struggle or flight from the Joker.|||He gives two different stories, one involving his father and the second one his wife. No way to know which one it%26#039;s true. |||He does it because he%26#039;s insane. They never reveal in the movie how he got them, the different stories are used to illustrate just how nuts he is.|||He meant that his father made one, and he did the other to himself in front of his wife. Because he is insane.|||the wife. he did it with a razor. He said he wasn%26#039;t smiling enough.|||Shop class when he was screwing around with the saw.|||by copying the carver from nip/tuck|||a knife. at first i thought it was just makeup he put on but then in da movie it said tht he did it to himself.
