This scar cream contains silicone, as do many other scar treatments, but is the first and only scar cream that pairs silicone with synthetic growth factors, making it more effective than straight silicone cream. Selectively chosen synthetic growth factors in the formula reduce redness, pigmentation, and skin thickening while also increasing the correct type of collagen synthesis. It can be used to address postsurgical and post-trauma scarring and is also suitable to use after cosmetic procedures such as CO2 lasers and microneedling.

- A study of 22 patients found that using Skinuva Scar twice daily for three months improved scars by 70%. Another study, published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, found that the product was nearly two times more effective for improving the look of scars than a straight silicone cream.
- Skin biopsy samples of 10 patients using Skinuva Scar found the lowest collagen type I to type III collagen ratio (as compared to those using straight silicone cream and those not using any type of treatment). This low ratio is favorable for scarless wound healing.
Apply twice daily onto clean skin, morning and night, gently massaging into the scar. Wait at least five minutes before applying any skin-care products or makeup on top of the scar cream and avoid using any on the affected area prior to application.RealSelf tips:
Begin using this no earlier than two weeks post-procedure or one week after suture removal.
While this cream is safe for all skin types and skin tones, consult with your physician for specific post-procedure instructions.
Expect best results on newer scars, those that are less than a year-old.
Sun exposure greatly increases the risk of scarring, so be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
Full ingredients list:
Silicone cream: The drier a wound, the slower the tissue heals. Silicone forms a barrier on the skin to lock in hydration, ensuring that cells and naturally occurring growth factors can function properly.
Growth factors: Selectively chosen, synthetic growth factors work to address scarring several ways. They reduce redness, pigmentation, and thickening of the skin and also promote the correct type of collagen production needed for scarless wound healing.
Hyaluronic acid: A hydrating ingredient, this also promotes healthy cell function and healing, and helps the growth factors in the formula travel through the skin more efficiently.
Vitamin C: This offers a trio of benefits, acting as a protective antioxidant, reducing hyperpigmentation and promoting collagen production.
Centella asiatica: An herbal ingredient, this has long been used in Asian cultures for its exceptional wound-healing properties.
Aloe vera: This moisturizing ingredient is soothing and anti-inflammatory and also helps promote wound healing.
