How To Apply Scar Gel or Cream

Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson narrates this instructional video that shows how to apply medical-grade scar gel to a surgical scar.

Video Transcription:

For postoperative wounds and incisions, we recommend SkinMedica Scar Recovery Gel. This formulation achieves a uniform collagen deposition to improve the appearance of the scar during the healing process.

A small amount of this gel is placed on the fingertip, in the amount equal to the size of a pea, amount of toothpaste you would use. Rub parallel to the incision to achieve a uniform deposition of collagen.
