People ask me all the time, “How do I get rid of scar
tissue on my face?”
One of the biggest challenges of having scar tissue on your face
is that it is you.
Your face is you in the world.
It’s hard to
go into the world with a big scar on your face and not feel like
people are looking at you or judging you. There is a lot of
emotion tied up with scar tissue and scarring when it happens
anywhere visible, but especially when it happens on your face.
Your face is a difficult place to hide.
However, there are a few things that you can do to speed the
healing of the scarring, regardless of whether that has come
from some sort of accident or some sort of surgery. Perhaps you
had a face lift scar. Facelift scars run alongside the face and
under the chin, but a lot of times they can end up pretty
visible along your face as well.
But you heal scar tissue on your face the same way you heal
scarring on many other parts of your body.
Here are a couple of techniques that we like to use.
Skin rolling is basically where you take the skin and pick it up
off of the underlying tissue. I’m just rolling the skin.
So if you are to do that on your face, for example on your
cheek, you would grab just the skin of your cheek and roll the
One of the challenges of that is that many times, scars will be
adhered (stuck) to the underlying tissue. The scar itself
connects to the tissue underneath and so it becomes difficult to
pull the skin. So you may not, at first, be able to grab the
skin very easily. However, over time, you will be able to do
more and more skin rolling.
The other technique is (we actually have 5 major different
techniques we use, but we’re only covering these two today)
called the point/prick method.
You want to be careful using the point/prick method, because you
are going to use a tool or other item that has a point on it.
You can use a tweezers or a twist tie, but just be careful, no
matter what you choose, because you are using something pointy.
You do have a lot of important features on your face that you
want to take care of.
You will want to use a mirror, so that you can see yourself, and
in the mirror you will want to do little pointing and pricking.
(I start with the plastic part of a twist tie, so that)
Basically you’re just barely touching the skin and seeing what
kind of sensations you have.
You can use tweezers as well. Don’t pinch with the tweezers. At
first, just use the point to lightly touch and see if you have
nerve sensation. If you do have nerve sensation, that’s great!
You’re going to want to increase the nerve sensation that you
have by adding additional pressure.
The pressure, however, should feel uncomfortable without feeling
painful. You don’t need to inflict pain on yourself in order to
have this work.
In any case, you are just going to work the scar just by
pointing and pricking just a little bit, very lightly, to see
what kind of nerve sensation you have.
If you have nerve sensation around your scar, but not on the
scar itself, go to where you have that nerve sensation, take the
sensation, and work it into the scar itself. This may be
uncomfortable, but do it over time and you’ll feel the
discomfort (or zingy feelings) from the scarring will start to
Go from a place on the skin where you have nerve sensation and
work that into where your nerves are either frazzled or
The goal is to increase the sensation and the circulation into
the scar tissue, by encouraging your circulation system to grow
back into the scar.
I do have other recommendations for healing scar tissue on your
face, which are written up in the book “Healing Scar Tissue”.

your own scarring (either on your face or elsewhere in your
body), continue reading.

I tore a muscle when I was in Jr. High when my coach was introducing me
to weight training. Doing bench presses, he added weights with each
pump. I felt something pop in my right shoulder and I had to have the
spotter take the bar bell away before I dropped it. It hurt initially
but I had not used that muscle much so I don't notice it much. Once in a
while when doing push ups or lifting above my head. More recently I have
been working with weight more and I have started to notice a tightness
and pain in my shoulder. It makes it difficult to do minor work using
those muscles only. A while back I had heard my dad mention scar tissue
in muscle injury and that prompted me to find your site.
