Advanced scar supervision plus SPF 30
1st and only topical silicone scar treatment with SPF cleared by the FDA*
bioCorneum is an advanced silicone treatment with SPF 30 for minimizing the appearance of scars while UV protection ingredients help guard them from any aggravating effects of the sun such as an increased erythema (redness) and hyperpigmentation.
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.

How does bioCorneum work?
bioCorneum hydrates discard area and creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normal collagen and 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 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 100% silicone scar treatment of this kind.
A new scar will continue to mature for at least six months. It has been demonstrated in clinical studies that proactively treating the new scar with the patented silicone formulation in bioCorneum may reduce the likelihood of abnormal scar formulation and provide the optimal environment for aesthetic scar outcome.
Adhering to the twice a day treatment schedule consistently every day, for the prescribed length of treatment, it is important. To be effective bioCorneum should be in contact with your scar 24 hours a day.
