How should bioCorneum®+ be used?
bioCorneum®+ should be applied to the area in a very thin layer, twice daily as directed by your physician. Recommended minimum treatment time for new scars is 60 to 90 days. Recommended use for older scars is 90 days.
Adhering to the twice a day treatment schedule consistently every day, for the prescribed length of treatment, is important. To be effective bioCorneum®+ must be in contact with your scar 24 hours a day.
Once applied, bioCorneum®+‘s patented gel dries within minutes forming an invisible silicone sheet over the affected area. This protective barrier is breathable, flexible, and waterproof. bioCorneum®+ binds with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells) to protect the underlying tissue against chemical, microbial and physical invasion of the scar.
bioCorneum®+ hydrates the scarred area and creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normal collagen synthesis cycles and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.
The patented silicone formulation in bioCorneum®+ has been shown to flatten, soften, and smooth scars, reduce discoloration, as well as relieve associated itch, pain and discomfort of scars.
The SPF 30 UV protection ingredients in bioCorneum®+ may protect the maturing scar from the darkening effects of sun exposure, a feature unique to bioCorneum®+ as it is the only patented silicone scar treatment of this kind.
