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!
Time. 1st and 2nd degree burns do not usually scar. However, they can cause uneven pigmentation. Swelling in particular can cause the area to darken (wraps ; support hose may help). Usually, once healed, the most important thing is to protect the area from injury and it is very important to avoid sun exposure to the area for at least the 1st year. Otherwise, moisturize as needed.
Burn scar. Improving a scar from a burn depends on a few things. When did the burn occur? How large is it? What does it look like. If you were recently burned, it will take up to a year for the scar to mature. In the meantime, stay out of the sun to avoid excessive pigmentation.
