I have had two extensive surgeries one on my face and one on my clavicle, I am looking to see if anyone knows of any natural remedies to break down scar tissue.

Please and thank you :)

    Scar reduction serum:

    2 tablespoons Almond oil (can also make a mix of Argan,and Wheatgerm oils. but I have said Almond oil here as its the easiest to find)

    1 teaspoon Rosehip oil (This oil is excellent for scars and stretch marks)

    4 drops Calendula oil

    4 drops Carrot seed oil

    3 drops Borage oil

    Blend together well by shaking in a glass bottle.

    Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

    Apply a few drops daily (or twice daily if you wish) to a clean face under moisturizer.

    This is a beautifully light blend but delivers lots of benefits deep into your skin's layers.

    I've heard that derma-roller or skin needling breaks up scar tissue. You can look it up on YouTube.

    You can try rubbing oils into the tissue a couple of times a day if it is a fresh scar and that can help. It's actually the rubbing that helps the most. Dr. Neil Schultz with DermTVdotcom on YouTube talks about scar formation and how to minimize scarring.

    You could try taking serrapeptase enzyme in high dosage. I had very good results for old surgical scars (4 years old).

    Apply coconut oil on it.
    This will reduce the scar, ultimately making it invisible.

    Yes, aloe is a truly amazing plant. Probably one of the most important plants in the entire history of healing.

    If the scar tissue is limiting motionit can sometimes be removed surgically and exercises done to allow the new healed skin to streach . Consult a doctor about that.

    Otherwise hot compresses may help
