Scar Management

The most common question anyone undergoing surgery has is what will the scar look like. Any time the skin is cut, you will have a scar. Scars not only leave a lasting impression on your skin, but if not managed properly scars can become painful and firm. 

In today’s market there are many creams and gels that claim to reduce scarring. However, none are very effective except Biocorneum. After trying many different scar products, Dr. Patel recommends Biocorneum to her patients. 

Biocorneum is applied twice a day to scars starting about 2-3 weeks after surgery. Once the cream dries, it leaves an invisible silicone sheet on the scar. 15 minutes after applying Biocorneum, you can apply any other cream or makeup on top. 

Biocorneum is the only advanced scar treatment with FDA-cleared SilishieldTM technology plus the protection of SPF 30. 

It is the only liquid silicone that actually adheres to your skin and stays adhered. 

Silishield’s patented technology, made with medical grade silicone, helps to keep skin hydrated and helps control excessive collagen formation that contributes to abnormal scarring. Sunscreen protects the area from darkening due to the sun’s exposure.

Biocorneum has been shown  to prevent post-op scarring

•The self-drying silicone gel used in the study was shown to be effective in reducing the hypertrophy rate of fresh surgical scars, and this type of treatment was rated as the first choice for preventing hypertrophy of recent scars.

Biocorneum is a simple, non-invasive, and painless treatment to reduce your scars.
