bioCorneum Scar Cream
Our chosen product to address scarring is bioCorneum+ (or bC+). Using bC+ will help provide the optimal environment for aesthetic scar outcome. We carry this in our office as a convenience for you and recommend that all of our patients use this after their sutures are removed and their wound is closed.
bC+ is a self-drying silicone gel for minimizing the appearance of scars while SPF 30 UV protection ingredients help guard them from the darkening effects of sun exposure.
At suture removal, it is recommended that you start applying a thin layer of bC+ twice daily for twelve weeks or until you stop seeing noticeable results. If you have a tendency to form hypertrophic (raised, red) scars or keloids, you may want to use bC+ for six months to a year.
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.
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 formation and provide the optimal environment for aesthetic scar outcome.
How Should bioCorneum+ be used?
- Ensure the affected area is clean and dry.
- Apply bC+ to the area in a very thin layer and allow to dry completely (4 to 5 minutes).
- Once dry, bioCorneum+ can be covered with cosmetics or compression garments.
- Adhering to the twice daily treatment schedule consistently every day, for the prescribed length of treatment, is important.
- To be effective bioCorneum+ should be in contact with your scar 24 hours day.
If you have any questions, please ask your patient coordinator.
We are very excited to be one of the first practices in Arizona to offer ZO Medical Products, Dr. Zein Obagi’s new therapeutic skin health line. ZO Medical’s advanced products and protocols are optimized to treat a wide range of skin disorders including uneven pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, acne and sun damage. ZO Medical utilizes the most potent ingredients in high concentrations-pure retinol, advanced peptides, and powerful antioxidants-it truly is the next generation of skincare!
For over three decades, Dr. Zein Obagi defined the concept of skin health and developed skincare treatments and programs that can create truly healthy skin. Now with the introduction of ZO® Medical products, Dr.Obagi’s next generation of therapeutic skincare products and treatments are exclusively available through skin health professionals.
Under the guidance of Dr. Zein Obagi, ZO Skin Health, Inc. has developed a wide spectrum of therapeutic treatments for everyone regardless of skin condition, age, gender or ethnicity. Based on the latest advances in skin therapy technology – biotechnology complexes, plant stem-cell components, and multi-therapy delivery systems – these products and programs have been optimized for your specific needs.
What is the difference between previous generations of products developed by Dr. Obagi and the new ZO Skin Health?
Although the philosophy of using a daily regimen of skin care products that reach into deeper dermis skin layers to stimulate new cell renewal and regeneration remains the same, the method of delivery of these skin products has changed. New technology and advances in skin therapy have enabled Dr. Zein Obagi, through ZO Skin Health, to create complex bio-engineered delivery systems that make his new ZO Skin Products even more effective than the previous generation.
The great news is that the ZO Skin Health products are better than ever, more effective and many are less expensive.
