Scarguard should never be put on open wounds or stitches. Instead, it should be started after the stitches come out and the skin has completely closed. At that point, Scarguard should be painted on twice daily. Most doctors recommend using it for approximately 12 weeks, or until the scar is flat and thin.
Independent studies have shown that using Scarguard during the healing process results in as much as 75% less scar tissue!
