- Doctors warn people that sun exposure after stitches, burns, injuries or surgery is very bad. It can lead to permanent darkening of scars.
Solarguard is a spray-on sunscreen that is specially formulated to be compatible with scar treatment products. Using it during the first six months after an injury will help to promote a great looking scar. Used properly, (see directions) it can also help prevent skin cancer.
This product should be used year-round unless the injured and healing area is completely covered under clothing.
Scarguard should be applied once in the morning when you wake up and once nightly before you go to sleep. It dries to a film within less than 30 seconds. The doctor’s office like smell is a cleanser that cleans the skin before forming the film. It dissipates quickly. Begin using Scarguard when your wound is completely healed. On older scars you may start using Scarguard immediately. Do not apply to broken skin.
Generally, Scarguard users start to see and feel noticeable improvement within days.
