    So I took a hockey stick to the face last night in my hockey league, requiring 5 stitches on my chin. It's prolly gonna scar. Once it's healed, I'm definitely gonna look into some sorta cosmetic treatment for the scar. Anyone have any experience in this?

    What can I expect it to cost?

    The plastic surgeon may give you a cream to apply a couple times a day or they may need to skin graph. It all depends on the scar itself.

    I would just go and see a plastic surgeon once its somewhat healed.

    As for the cost, I have no idea. My co worker who has been dealing with this should be back in the office next week if you can wait I can get more information out of him then.

    you could try mederma or bio oil if its a nice fresh scar.

    if you go for surgery or something keep us up to date with what the deal is, I have a scar I would love to get rid of on my face.

    I've heard your societal net worth goes down by 100K with every facial scar.

    5 stitches isn't that many. I'm sure it will heal fine. Just give it time. Don't put anything on it until the stitches are removed and the scar is closed up.

    When you injure your tissues those tissues will not regenerate, but scar tissue will form where the lesion was through the process of healing. Since it is impossible to regenerate old tissue the scar is inevitable. It cannot be removed by surgery because healing from surgery will only result in more scar tissue formation.

    The best thing to do is just to embrace it.

    Looking closely at the cut, it's a very clean slice which hopefully will have minimal scarring when all is said and done. I guess I was just a little worried that it was gonna be worse than it is cause I didn't get a good chance to inspect it under the bandages before posting. I just remember the bloody horror show it was when it happened, and the looks of sheer disgust on my team mates faces...

    seriously, as soon as the blood is gone and maybe even before the stitches are out. COAT THAT MUTHAFUCKA WITH LIQUID VITAMIN E!!!!

    as soon as you can and as much and often as you can.

    the trick is quick.

    i was maybe a weekor two late starting it on my head last summer, but it did still drastically reduce it.

    skater friend told me when I was worried about my scar.

    the amount of stitches dont matter. It's how deep the cut is.

    I still have a scar on my left index finger from when an x-acto blade went right down to the bone. 2 stitches.

    as to answer the OP's question:

    Tea Tree oil and liquid vitamin E. This will reduce the scarring.

    vitamin E cream *might* help in the mean time after the wound heals, but how you scar is mostly up to genetics. but like deus said, surgery is not an option really. embrace it, scars are hot.

    Silicone will work wonders, use as soon as the cut isn't open. This is recommended to treat burn scars and keloid scars.

    Look for a self-adhesive sheet product that you can use multiple times. I had great success with Mepiform years ago but don't know what the best brand on the market is now.
