While cosmetic surgery procedures can help to address many “problem” areas for a boost in confidence, they often result in some scarring. At our office, we offer two professional scar creams to help your incisions heal quickly and effectively.
Why Do Scars Form?
Scars are formed as part of the body’s natural healing process. They form when the dermis, or deep layer of skin, is damaged. The body then forms new collagen fibers to fix the damage, which results in a scar. New scar tissue will have a different texture than the surrounding tissue. While most scars are flat and pale, some may be raised, in which case they are called hypertrophic or keloid scars.
BIOCORNEUM® Advanced Scar Treatment
BIOCORNEUM® is the only scar treatment with FDA-cleared Silishield™ patented crosslinking medical grade silicone and SPF 30 to prevent and minimize the formation of hypertrophic scars, decrease the appearance of old scars, protect scars from sun’s darkening effects, and dry quickly to adhere to skin for 12 to 24 hours.
