Dr. Schweiger Quoted in Women’s Health Magazine

“How do I make scars (from blisters cuts, and bug bites) appear less visible?” —Kelly O., Manhattan, NY
“I recommend using a thin film of Kelo-cote scar gel once a day for 60 to 90 days ($27,, suggests Eric Schweiger, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City. The silicone in the gel helps flatten the scar and reduce discoloration. You can also smooth Dermablend Leg & Body Cover Foundation over the area. Its lightweight but creamy texture makes scars temporarily invisible, and it won’t rub off on clothes ($26, For unsightly scars, ask your dermatologist about laser treatments—you’ll likely need three or four sessions, which can run $500 to $1,200 each.”
