Method: 60 patients both male female between 18-50 years suffering from scar markings were included in trial. All patients were advised to apply MINISCAR cream once in a day for 30 days.

In 24 patients of acne scar, 54% patients showed significant improvement. In 20 patients of stretch marks, almost 50% patients showed significant improvement. In 6 patients of hypertrophic scars, 66% patients showed significant improvement. While no significant improvement was observed in 2 patients of contracture scar and 8 patients of Keloid scar.
