Why should I treat my scar?
Scars can be an unwanted visual reminder of a past procedure or injury. But scars are not simply a cosmetic problem. Scar tissue lacks the full functionality of normal skin. For example, flexibility and the sense of touch may be diminished or completely lost. Treating scars can help to complete your healing process.2,3
How does BIOCORNEUM work?
BIOCORNEUM’s key ingredient, Silishield patented crosslinking silicone, forms a protective shield over the scar area that is optimal for physiological healing and cosmetic improvement. Sunscreen agents protect the area from sun exposure’s darkening effects. Together, these factors help to keep skin hydrated and normalize excessive collagen formation that contributes to abnormal scarring. The shield also aids in protecting the underlying tissue against chemical, physical and microbial invasion.
