bioCorneum Scar Treatment
The Only FDA Cleared Silicone Gel Scar Treatment with SFP 30
The physicians at Hedden Plastic Surgery use BIOCORNEUM® to treat scars following procedures at our Birmingham, Alabama plastic surgery center. BIOCORNEUM is the advanced scar treatment that prevents and minimizes the formation of hypertrophic scars and protects scars from the sun. Following application, bioCorneum forms an invisible, flexible silicone sheet that gives your skin the protection it needs during the healing process.
All silicones are not created equal
BIOCORNEUM® is the only advanced scar treatment with 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 sunburn and dry quickly to adhere to skin for 12 to 24 hours.
The physician's choice for advanced scar treatment
Silicone Treatment for Plastic Surgery Scarring
Our cosmetic surgeons and medical staff in Birmingham, Alabama are dedicated to minimizing the cosmetic appearance of any scars as much as possible. BIOCORNEUM can help you get the best possible results from your cosmetic surgery procedure.
bioCorneum's FDA-cleared Silishield™ technology carries the benefits of traditional silicone sheeting with the comfort and ease of a gel. This patented crosslinking silicone creates an invisible shield that feels like a second skin and helps reduce the appearance of both new and old scars.
bioCorneum can be used on scars that result from surgical and cosmetic procedures as well as trauma, wounds and burns. Self-adhering, bioCorneum creates a silicone shield on the skin, dries quickly and protects scars from sunburn. bioCorneum is also available with 1% hydrocortisone acetate to relieve itching.
How to Apply BIOCORNEUM
bioCorneum is the self-adhering, self-drying, silicone scar treatment that can be used on every scar, every day. bioCorneum is most effective when used twice a day for the duration of treatment. The recommended minimum treatment time is 60 days for new scars and 90 days for older scars.
Application of bioCorneum is quick and easy:
- Apply a thin, even layer two times a day (morning and evening) over the scar area.
- Allow to dry completely. Wait 15 minutes before sun exposure.
- Once dry, bioCorneum can be covered with pressure garments, clothing or cosmetics.
