What is the best cream or ointment for healing scarred facial skin after surgery?


After having basal cell cancer removed from the lip area, what would you recommend to a person that is trying to help aid in the healing process? There were four layers taken to get the cancer, and some possible scarring is likely to happen. Is there a good aloe or vitamin E cream or ointment that you can recommend? Or something totally different from that? I am speaking of after the main scar is healed and for the weeks after where its doing the long term healing. I know up until then, its Dr.'s orders. Thank you!

    I have never heard of bio oil, and will have to look for it. I love using natural vitamins and minerals or herbs. I will look up the bio oil and remember about gently massaging the area. Yes, for now, I am following doctors orders totally.

    Thank you so much, I will look into maybe getting some shea butter. I hadn't thought of that for scars!

    I am a huge fan of aloe vera and natural products. I may try to get a hold of some higher percentage pure aloe vera gel. Thank you for the comment.

    Wow, I am a big fan of herbal remedies. I had no idea about the healing properties of comfrey. Thank you so much for sharing. That is excellent news for the both of you, wow.
