With invasive surgery comes scars, an unpreventable side-effect. These scars can be a troublesome reminder of a medical procedure or injury and can sometimes lead to low confidence, especially if they are in a highly visible location. However, there are options for helping to diminish the appearance of scars. At Rocheford Plastic Surgery, we offer bioCorneum® to help manage the appearance of scars acquired from surgical incisions or injuries, whether they are new or from years and years ago.

What is bioCorneum®?

bioCorneum® is exclusively available at plastic surgeons’ and dermatologists’ offices. Made up of a blend of silicone and SPF 30, bioCorneum® dries into an invisible, flexible sheet of silicone over the scar. This helps prevent abnormal scarring while softening and flattening raised scars, reduces redness, and prevents discoloration caused by the sun. bioCorneum® is water-resistant and relieves any itching or discomfort that may come with the healing of a scar.

How to use bioCorneum®

Application of bioCorneum® is quick and easy and can be done in three simple steps. The first is to make sure the area of application is clean and dry. Next, you will apply a thin layer of the bioCorneum® treatment over the scar area. You will do this twice a day, once in the evening and once at night. Finally, once the product has completely dried, you can cover it up with compression garments, clothing, or even makeup. If you notice that your bioCorneum® is taking five minutes or longer to dry after applying it, this may be a sign that you are using too much of the product.

bioCorneum® Results

Continuous use of bioCorneum® scar treatment can result in a significant reduction in the appearance of scarring, whether it is on the face or somewhere else on the body. Most patients begin to see results after only 4 weeks of treatment. The best, and optimal, results will peak after around 3 months of use. Treatment time can vary depending on the age of the scar. For newer scars, resulting from injury or surgical incisions, treatment can be complete in as little as 60 days. For older scars, it may take at least 90 days. In either case, bioCorneum® is effective in breaking up scar tissue, new or old, and restoring the appearance of smooth, even skin.
