Normal Scar

Step 1

Apply product to your index finger and dab it onto the center of the scar, before massaging all the way along the scar in lengthwise to-and-fro movement.

Step 2

Apply the same to-and-fro motion bit in the axis perpendicular to the scar

Broad Scar

Step 1

Apply product to your index finger and dab along both edges of the scar, working in twisting motions all the way along the 1st edge until the skin is softened. Work in the same twisting motions along the other edge.

Step 2

Once you have softened both edges, work in strokes perpendicular to the 1st edge, bringing it closer to the 2nd, and vice versa.

Step 3

Then pinch the 2 edges between your fingers, bringing them into the center.

Step 4

To finish, smooth all along the scar.

Raised Scar

Step 1

Apply product to your index finger then dab along the scar. Pinch the scar between your thumb and index finger, resting the skin on the thumb and massaging the scar by rolling your index and middle fingers.

Step 2

Apply the same technique, but from the other side of the scar.

Step 3

If the scar is supple enough, carry out the same movement but along the vertical axis.

Hollow Scar

Step 1

Apply product to your index finger then dab along the scar.
Pinch the scar between your thumb and index finger, resting the skin on the thumb and massaging the scar by rolling your index and middle fingers.

Step 2

Apply the same technique, but form the other side of the scar.

Step 3

If the scar is supple enough, carry out the same movement but along the vertical axis.
