After having five children I wanted a tummy tuck – £9 product gave me confidence in my stomach again

webnexttech | After having five children I wanted a tummy tuck - £9 product gave me confidence in my stomach again

A mum-of-five has hailed a scar treatment brand for “significantly” reducing the appearance of her scars following an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), which left her with an anchor-shaped scar on her stomach. Scar Erase is a six-week treatment made up of medical-grade silicone strips that have been formulated to hydrate the scar site and reduce the redness that comes with such a mark, raising it and leaving it discoloured. The treatment strips, which cost £28 for three – working out at £9.33 per strip – work by being adhered directly to the scar – which is formed due to moisture being lost, resulting in excessive collagen – and worn for a minimum of 12 hours a day. These strips can then be reused after being washed and dried. The magic behind the treatment is, as stated by Scar Erase, “The strips work by creating a protective barrier over the scarred area, which helps to hydrate and soften the skin. This process helps to reduce the appearance of scars by improving the texture and colour of the affected area. Plus, the silicone material helps to lock in moisture, which helps to speed up the healing process.” READ MORE: 77-year-old Joanna Lumley ‘swears by’ £4 Amazon anti-ageing cream for ‘soft’ and youthful skin READ MORE: Boots shoppers rush out to buy ‘magic’ £10 eye cream that ‘takes years off’ by reducing bags and fades dark circles After using these 0.3mm strips that are a nude colour, your scar will appear softer and flatter. The treatment works on both old and freshly closed scars and is ideal for hypertrophic, post-acne, keloid, post-surgery, c-section, and stretch marks. And it seems this was the case for Laura Ashfield, who, after giving birth to five children, booked in for a tummy tuck to improve the appearance of the “wrinkly, crepe-like skin” she was left with as well as fix the separation in her abdominal muscles from the pregnancies, which left her with a bad back and unable to lift, which she stated in a blog post on Scar Erase’s website. After being recommended a silicone treatment by her surgeon, Laura’s results are impressive after a total of eight months of regularly treating her scar once it had fully healed following her operation. Following just eight weeks of applying the treatment for 12+ hours a day, Laura revealed her scar had “faded and lightened it significantly, I also noticed it had also started to smooth out a lot of the bumpy raised bits around the scar”, and after eight months of use, she explained how “My scar has flattened and faded significantly”. In pictures shared on the Scar Erase website, Laura’s anchor-shaped scar from her operation is hardly noticeable thanks to the treatment strips. The strips get an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon, with shoppers believing the strips “work well” and are “easy to use,” with one going as far as to call it the “best scar therapy in the market.” But some were not convinced by the product, one shopper writing on Amazon said: “Have been using for only a month and cannot see any real discernable change. Very early days though, so we shall see. The product is very easy to use, a bit expensive, but you do get plenty of strips, which can be very easily cut to the required size. Time will tell.” If this sounds like the sort of thing you’d like to try to treat your scar, get the treatment strips from Scar Erase here. Alternatively, Bio Oil skincare oil has been praised by shoppers and celebrities alike for vastly reducing the appearance of scarring and stretch marks. At £8, it’s available to buy here from Amazon.
