SCAR CARE:
WHY YOU SHOULD PROTECT SCARS
FROM THE SUN

Skin trauma and inflammation (for example surgery or severe acne) can trigger post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, causing the scar to turn dark brown. Exposure to ultraviolet light can make the condition worse. This discoloration can last for years, so especially during the 1st year, broad-spectrum, high SPF sun protection is essential to care for your scar.
