Best?: There is no "best" scar treatment for each patient will react in different ways to wound healing and response to various chemicals. One good natural remedy is aloe Vera, straight from the plant. Plastic surgeons are also a wealth of knowledge about up to date scar creams and other treatments. Time is also good, as scars tend to fade over time. Hope this helps!
