physical? sometimes they do, and with laser operations, they eventually go away physiological? No, they stay , but sometimes, it's for the best, because they help you shape the person you are today and make you stronger. it's important not to forget the things we went through but to use it as a way to be even stronger in life.

Depending how deep the cuts were, they might fade but never go away completely. I've heard rubbing sugar on then helps them fade quicker.

Scars will definitely fade with time and some may even disappear completely, but others may never completely go away. There are some over-the-counter products like Mederma that may help, and laser treatment is an option if scars are severe. It is also important to allow cuts to heal naturally and not interfere by picking at or reopening them, as that will cause scarring to be more severe.

Some may, but some may not. If you look on YouTube, there are a few tutorials on how to get rid of scars.

No and Yes. It really depends on a lot of factors. Some will fade, but not go away. Some wont go away at all and some will completely disappear. It's just a matter of time.

Some will and some wont. It depends where you do them, how deep they are, and what you did them with.

Yes the scars will eventually go away and they will become distant memories, war stories that made you a stronger person

Honestly, it depends on the severity of your cuts/scars and your aftercare. For some people, they won't, and others they will. There are methods to help speed up the healing (google is your best friend), and if you want to minimize them, perhaps you could research into that. But, unfortunately, for some there is no guarantee that the scars will ever go away.

Either answer will work for that question. None of the scars go away however, they can heal up so well that you can barely see them. I have scars that you can see from a mile away and I also have scars that you have to look close to see.

Maybe. It takes a lot of time for sure, you just have to be patience. It's not easy for your body to just make them disappear, so take care of it and have in mind that scars makes you remember that you survived.

Most of mine haven't yet. A lot have but a lot haven't. They can be reminders though and show how strong you are.

It depends on what kind of scars and where they are. Most scars do not go away, but fade away with time instead, while others will always be visible.

Scars are individuals. Depending on where they are and how deep they are they will fade but probably never fully leave. But it is okay to have scars. Don't be ashamed of them they are a part of you and everybody has scars. On the inside or on the outside.

Sometimes they will. Mine have partially faded after 2 years, but my older sister has had hers for 10. It depends on how deep they were I guess.

Scars won't ever completely 'disappear' but they will fade, even to near invisibility if they are small enough. It is possible to aid the fading of scars with products such as bio oil and vitamin E oil.

Physical scars, maybe, maybe not....emotional scars, they may not go away but you can heal. Holding on to your past is only hurting yourself, you have to be able to confront those emotions that cause those scars in order to overcome them. Never feel like you're alone, there is always someone going through something and maybe through your own healing, you can help someone else with theirs. A lot of times opening up about your scars helps the healing process. It won't happen overnight, but it is possible to heal.

Yes but you need to be patient. Mines are still there after 2 years so yeah, just be patient and take care

Scars probably will not go away completely, yet will shrink as you grow and become fainter, eaning that they are less visible.

The scars will never go away, however we can heal them with time. Scars define us, scars are who we are. Without them we wouldn’t have learnt how to deeply feel strong emotions. No matter how hard it is to move on, struggles push us to become better people. We learn with them, we grow with them, and eventually we adapt with them. This is how a human world works, struggles are our mentors, but we are the ones that have power to change that and change our emotions. We are the ones that heal ourselves and step on these struggles that once seemed to ruin our lives.
