Scar-Reducing Serum is an innovative specialty product formulated with ingredients that fade the appearance of scars, smooth skin’s texture, and promote optimal healing of wounds. High concentrations of quercetin, the active antioxidant component of onion extract, and vitamin C along with skin-repairing ingredients reduce redness and inflammation, as well as dramatically minimize scar texture and restore normal color.

This silky, targeted treatment serum helps prevent and reduce the formation of scars on newly healed wounds and helps older scars feel softer and smoother so they’re less apparent. Results are long-lasting and can be visible in as little as 8 weeks of daily use; best of all, the formula contains ingredients proven by research, so your scar(s) stand a very good chance of improving, and that’s exciting news! This product is suitable for all skin types, including breakout-prone or rosacea. As with all Paula’s Choice products, Scar-Reducing Serum is fragrance-free.

Pros:
  • Concentrated with quercetin and vitamin C to fade the appearance of scars.
  • Skin-healing and skin-repairing ingredients reduce redness and inflammation.
  • Promotes optimal ongoing healing of wounds once they've closed.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • None.

Silky treatment serum inhibits new scars, helps fade old scars, reduces scar redness, improves scar texture and color, and aids skin’s natural healing process.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products. Like most of us, she was fed up with products that overpromised results, cost a lot of money, and failed to deliver—or made matters worse!

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable. From acne to wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea, large pores, eczema, redness, sagging, dry skin, and on and on, Paula's Choice offers a solution.

Paula's Choice Skincare stands apart from other cosmetics brands. The formulas contain only ingredients that have substantiated, published research showing they are beneficial and effective—so you get visible results. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down (unlike jar packaging, which compromises what might otherwise be an effective formula). The line is also 100% fragrance-free, which is best for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin or rosacea.

From cleansers to broad-spectrum sunscreens to anti-aging serums to specialized treatments, Paula's Choice Skincare has you covered from head to toe with innovative, state-of-the-art products. The brand also offers professional-quality makeup products including concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, and more. (Paula started out as a makeup artist so she definitely knows her way around a face!)

Paula's Choice Skincare does not test on animals and also takes an environmentally friendly approach by featuring minimalist, recyclable packaging. Another plus—the Customer Service team is among the best in the industry, offering a "100% satisfaction or your money back" guarantee.

Why are all Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia's criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.

    Truly works on more than just scars!
    • I bought this when I first read about it, mostly to treat a few tiny post teen acne scars. I admit they weren't huge, but they bugged me so I gave it a try. I was shocked how fast it worked! Two scars were gone in just 7 days, and a brown spot on my wrist (I have one on each wrist in the same place, they look like cig burn scars but aren't) vanished in 10 days. The other great thing about this serum is it fills in tiny lines like crow feet & eye crepe like lines. Well worth the $!
