Q&A — Will Self-Tanning Cream Help Blend Scars?

Q: Will self-tanning cream darken these scars, or will it help blend them in to the rest of my leg? I had an ambulatory phlebectomy performed on on leg in May 2011, and the other leg in October 2011. I have tiny scars from the incisions.

A: For the time being, just keep them out of direct sunlight or covered with sunscreen. They are relatively fresh and will fade over the first year.
