Dr. Gabriel H. Patino offers bioCorneum® treatments in Oakland, Berkeley, and surrounding areas of California.
bioCorneum® was recently in the news for its use in Angelina Jolie’s post mastectomy scar treatment plan. It is the first quick drying silicone gel treatment for scars with a sun protection factor of 30 to be cleared by the FDA. It is now the leading treatment plan for scar therapy and used around the country. It is safe and effective, drying clear so that you can wear it in public.
Am I a Good Candidate for bioCorneum®?
bioCorneum® helps protect incisions from scarring during the healing process. Those who are having surgery and are concerned about scars may want to discuss using bioCorneum® post-op. The formula flattens and softens the area, lessening redness and skin discoloration. It works for post-surgical use and for pre-existing keloid or raised scars and for hypertrophic scars. Depending on what type of pre-existing scars you have, you may be using bioCorneum® for three months to a year. However, bioCorneum® has been clinically shown to prevent the formation of scars when used as a preventative.
What Can I expect after bioCorneum®?
bioCorneum® is a scar treatment that will gradually make your scars less noticeable if you are using it on existing scars or will keep you from forming scars as easily after surgery. It takes time, but the results you see from BioCorneum® will not go away like a temporary solution. After BioCorneum®, you will not be able to see your scars as easily, they will be softer, smoother, and faded.
