“bioCorneum®+ is an advanced silicone treatment for minimizing the appearance of scars while protecting them from further damage caused by sun exposure.” —from the bioCorneum website
bioCorneum®+ works by hydrating scarred areas, helping the scar to mature through its normal collagen synthesis cycles. This improves the appearance of the scar, and bioCorneum®+ has the added advantage of providing sun protection with its SPF 30 rating.
Upon application, the bioCorneum®+ gel forms a transparent silicone layer over your skin. This waterproof sheet of silicone breathes and flexes.
bioCorneum®+ gets its name from the stratum corneum, the outer layer of dead skin cells with which the gel binds to protect your healing skin from chemical, biological, and physical harm.
In addition to relieving the itching and discomfort of scarred skin, bioCorneum®+ has been proven to flatten, soften, and smooth scars, and to reduce discoloration. bioCorneum®+ is the only patented silicone scar treatment to offer Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30, which helps protect healing scars from the darkening effects of sunlight.
BioSpa located in Newport Beach offers bioCorneum®+ to its patients to aid with scar healing and maximize the likelihood of an excellent surgical result.

bioCorneum®+ should be applied to the area in a very thin layer, twice daily as directed by your physician. Recommended minimum treatment time for new scars is 60 to 90 days. Recommended use for older scars is 90 days. Adhering to the twice a day treatment schedule consistently every day, for the prescribed length of treatment, is important.
