I was really unsure that this product would work for me. I had knee surgery in November of 2018 and was having a tough recovery so a year later I purchased this item. It's been three months since I've used this product and it's been so helpful. First, it helped decrease the appearance of my keloid scar, my surgery scar was always tender to touch and I constantly had to deal with the itchy sensation since using this product I no longer experience any of those symptoms. Second, it has helped a lot with the inflammation which in return has helped me go to the gym more in order to get my quad muscles stronger. I just wished I would have used this item shortly after surgery I'm sure it would have speed up my recovery.
