Scars on the skin are battle wounds that stay for a while even after the skin has healed. Some scars are permanent reminds, while others eventually fade away. There are a large number of creams, ointments, and old wives’ tales that claim to prevent scaring from occurring or to minimize the appearance of scars once the skin heals. Many of these remedies use a lot of the same ingredients, one common ingredient being Vitamin E. Because of its popularity as an active ingredient, many people are curious about using Vitamin E on its own.

Vitamin E is available in capsule and liquid forms as an over the counter supplement. The oil is typically applied directly on to the skin where a wound or scar is present. Vitamin E penetrates the skin and reduced the formation of what are known as “free radicals.” Free radicals interfere with the skin’s healing abilities, often causing even minor injuries to turn into permanent scars. Vitamin E is known to positively influence the production of collagen to stimulate the skin’s elasticity and strength.

Science has mixed reports on the effectiveness of using Vitamin E on scar reduction. However, this homeopathic approach to treating the skin has been around for thousands of years as a natural and holistic method.

The application of Vitamin E is generally very safe. It is important, though, that the injury is not an open wound; applying any type of substance to a wound too soon can interfere with proper healing.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
