watch out with the short-sleeved shirts. I've read in many places to try to avoid exposing the scars to the sun for the first year.
also, scars can continue to flatten and fade for about a year (and I've read possibly up to two years) - albeit not as quickly as they do the first six months. But you may still see some improvement - so don't give up hope yet!


Thanks for the reminder - although I live in WA state and we don't see much sun lol. But I'm originally from Cali so I definitely know the importance of sunscreen.

Do you think you might want to share a pic of YOUR fabulous arms??

Sure. Let's see, keeping to my shower schedule of the past few months, I'd say I should have that picture taken in about another week or so. Hahaha. Will still probably be of me in jammies though. [emoji16]

hahahahaha...when I switched to the cica tape, I was taking less showers because I didn't want to have to change the tape so often. (I have a limited supply because I order it from the states, ship to my sister, then she ships to me. I *could* order them and ship direct to me up here, but its about 50% more expensive PLUS i'd have to pay duty!!)

Anyhoo, I soon realized that the cica tape sticks to me like glue because even with multiple showers, this stuff just doesn't budge! Thank goodness, as I was smelling ripe when I didn't shower for a couple days, loloolololozzzz
