medix you want proteolytic enzymes. You will probably have to order them online as most health food stores do not carry them. Over time, the enzymes will eat away the scar tissue.
Baseline Nutritionals has an excellent one if you do a search. It is Jon Barron's formula.

I have read very few actual testimonials on the reduction of scar tissue once it is old. The time to deal with it is when the wounds are new. Internal keloids can be helped with enzyme therapy but it will take a while and for that I recommend the enzyme called www.serrapeptase.info
Plastic surgery may be an option but likely one you could well be sick of my now
There are some people who do seem to absorb scar tissue over time and it is not known why this happens.
I don't know if it will help or not but Dr Christopher makes an excellent ointment called Bone and Tissue ointment, there is also the pill called bone and tissue, but try the ointment, that is very healing. I would apply it with a little DMSO, just a touch to get it into the scar tissue as this tissue does not trasnfer nutrients with full capacity as other tissue.
You may want to look into prylotheapy, the injections of homeopathics into scars, acupuncture points and other injury. I have heard that sometimes they can do something

I really don't know if it would work for old scars though.
I have further info somewhere. I will see if I can find it. If deep tissue healing is still required I would add the Tissue and Bone capsules. Due to FDA regs. the comfrey was taken out of the capsules. You would have to locate comfrey, maybe even grow it and drink comfrey tea to really make the forumula what it once was. It is still in the ointment though. You can find comfrey plants on the internet. Its a good time to plant and they should take off quick.
If I may piggyback on this topic, what about new scars? I have a big "x" on my cheek from a recent (4 months ago) skin cancer Mohs procedure - it's still quite puffy and very unven, it has a big valley going through the middle of it... I have been using a silicone ointment but I think it's making it worse?
Today I got some vit e capsules for my finger, which I slammed in a car door and now the nail is going - would the oil be good for the scar as well?
Is there something better?
This is the most exciting topic in enzyme supplementation, the use of high levels of proteolytic enzymes between meals. The health benefits derived from this kind of supplementation can be truly extraordinary. Benefits from using proteolytic enzymes can include:
Reduced inflammation for, among other things:
Increased heart health
Cancer prevention and recovery
Cleanse the blood of debris
Dissolve fibrin in the blood, reducing the risk of clots
Raise the immune system
Kill bacteria and viruses
Eliminate autoimmune diseases
Speed up recovery from sprains, strains, fractures, bruises, contusions, and surgery
Help with MS
Help with arthritis
Help with sinutis and asthma
Dissolve scar tissue
Aid in detoxing
One of the "hot" proteolytic enzymes in alternative health right now is serrapeptase. It has remarkable anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (counters swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues. And in addition to reducing inflammation, serrapeptase has a profound ability to reduce pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues. And finally, it helps clear mucous from the lungs by reducing neutrophil numbers and altering the viscoelasticity of sputum in patients with chronic airway diseases. These are all major benefits, however, serrapeptase has several problems
Its quality tends to be inconsistent
It can cause intestinal distress
It is very sensitive to stomach acid, which means it has to be enteric coated. Unfortunately, the technology for enteric coating capsules or powders is not reliable (which is why you normally find enteric coating used only on hard tablets or on hard beads inside capsules (as in cold capsules).
When my had a surgery 2 years ago, she had a big scar on her neck, which was seen to anybody. She used to treat with the piece of lemon. Juice of lemon makes the reddness become invisiable, and as a result now I can hardly see this scar :-) But please CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE trying this treatment. Also I am not sure if lemon juice can work on old scars. Anyways I hope you will find the way how to help your self... I really-really hope so :-)
