Doctors warn people that sun exposure after stitches, burns, injuries or surgery is very bad. It can lead to permanent darkening of scars.
Solarguard is a spray-on sunscreen that is specially formulated to be compatible with scar treatment products. Using it during the first six months after an injury will help to promote a great looking scar. Used properly, (see directions) it can also help prevent skin cancer.
This product should be used year-round unless the injured and healing area is completely covered under clothing.
