Brief Answer:
SCAREND can be used.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If the cut is transverse, the healing will be good and the scar is minimal.
If the cut is vertical, there will be visible scar.
I found good results with SCAREND ointment in my patients.

Please consult a Plastic surgeon after the healing of wound and get appropriate prescription.
Nothing to worry.

Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
