Cesarean scars typically take between 6-12 weeks to heal completely after the incision was made. As the scar initially forms, it will be red, pink or shiny in appearance. As the scar begins to heal, it will fade to a silver or white colour. Some women do wish to fade this scar, however the length of time this takes and how well it reduces can depend on your age, genetic history with wound healing and how long the incision took to heal.
Keeping a wound hydrated can assist in the healing and fading process, as it helps your body to produce a scar which is more flexible and therefore easier to heal in the future. Often, the skin that makes up a new scar is immature and allows too much water to be lost. Therefore, applying hydrating products often could help to accelerate the speed at which the scar heals and fades.
Here at The Cosmetic Centre we have a range of hydrating products that can help with hydration:
Epionce Medical Barrier Cream
This is a rich formula that has the main benefit of repairing the skin. It is a hydrating cream which repairs the skin barrier and prevents the skin cells from losing moisture and becoming dry or itchy. It also helps to calm inflammation of the skin.
Epionce Essential Recovery Kit
This kit is used to provide a rapid restoration of the skin’s barrier function, while also giving the skin a surge of hydration to soothe sensitive skin.
- Priming oil preps the skin for additional hydration. The oil is anti-inflammatory and therefore helps to minimize swelling and redness, while also being antibacterial to reduce the risk of infection.
- Enriched Firming Mask visibly reduces signs of redness and hydrate the skin.
- Renewal calming cream moisturizes dry, sensitized skin, while also helping to calm and soothe.
- Milky Lotion Cleanser gently cleanses a sensitive skin without over-drying.

This helps to protect and restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier as well as reducing inflammation. It contains natural tara seed extract, working deep within the skin to boost moisture levels and prevent further dehydration.
