Will self tanning cream help blend scars from ambulatory phlebectomy?

Ambulatory Phlebectomy . 1 answer . 2 years ago

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. Will self-tanning cream darken these scars, or will it help blend them in to the rest of my leg?

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.
