BIOCORNEUM is the only scar treatment with FDA-cleared Silishield™ technology plus the protection of SPF 30. Learn why physicians prefer the patented silicone formulation in BIOCORNEUM over other therapies.
BIOCORNEUM’s patented crosslinking silicone, Silishield, has been shown to be effective:
In preventing post-op scarring
- The self-drying silicone gel used in the study was shown to be effective in reducing the hypertrophy rate of fresh surgical scars, and this type of treatment was rated as the first choice for preventing hypertrophy of recent scars. Keloids and Hypertrophic Scars can now be treated with Biocorneum.
- Treatment with silicone gel after incision resulted in 67% of scars being rated normal (versus 28% with no treatment), and 26% mildly hypertrophic (versus 46% with no treatment). These results were statistically significant.
In treating existing scars
- Silicone gel was used to treat both newly formed scars (< 3 months) and older scars (at least 4 years), and was shown to be effective at relieving scar symptoms. Biocorneum can be used after plastic surgery. Also can be used to treat trauma wounds and burns.
- 70% to 85% of patients and physicians reported improvements in scar symptoms after treatment with silicone gel and more than 80% had high satisfaction in ease of use, cosmetic result, and overall satisfaction.
Preferred over other therapies
BIOCORNEUM is the only topical treatment with FDA-cleared Silishield™ patented crosslinking medical grade silicone and SPF to prevent and minimize the formation of new scars, decrease the appearance of old scars, protect scars from sun exposure’s darkening effects, and dry quickly to adhere to skin for 12 to 24 hours. Silishield’s patented technology keeps skin hydrated, minimizing collagen formation that contributes to abnormal scarring.
Usage of Biocorneum relating to scar size:

What is Biocorneum?
Biocorneum AST is a silicone gel that you can use at home that significantly minimizes the appearance of scars from wounds or burns. Plastic surgeons often advise it to their patients after surgical procedures to reduce the visible scarring from incisions.
Scar therapy is effective for both new and old scars. It can prevent the formation of raised hypertrophic scars and can soften existing scars, helping to flatten them and reduce redness or other discolorations. Biocorneum can improve the overall appearance of scars older than one year, but results may be minimal. You don’t need a doctor’s prescription for Biocorneum, and you can find it online or at the drugstore, but it’s best to buy it directly from your doctor’s office to be sure it’s the real deal.
How does it work?
Medical grade silicone is typically used in scar therapy. Silicone products, usually in the form of bandage-like sheets, act as an occlusive to hydrate the skin and control overproduction of collagen that tends to contribute to thick, raised scars. Forming a shielding barrier over an incision can also help hold the skin together for a smoother healing and stop movement that stretches the skin and widens the incision. Biocorneum’s unique gel is easy to apply and adheres to the skin as it dries. The main ingredient is an FDA-approved cross-linked silicone called Silishield. The gel dries clear and completely smooth, remaining flexible and breathable, although you may see a slight gloss over the treated area. The Biocorneum formula also contains SPF 30, which protects your skin from UV light so your scar doesn’t turn dark. For people who suffer from itching along their scars, there is a version that contains 1% hydrocortisone acetate to soothe the itching.
How should you use Biocorneum?
Silicone scar therapies like Biocorneum should only be used on your healed incisions, old and new scars, scars resulting from surgical procedures, hypertrophic scars – not open wounds – after the sutures have been removed. Depending on the specifics of your incision and your recovery, your wound should be completely closed within three to six weeks, at which point you can begin using Biocorneum. For best results, apply the silicone gel everyday to clean, dry skin. It should stay on your skin for 12 to 24 hours before it needs to be re-applied. You can apply any lotions or makeup over it, but let it dry completely first. Wait 15 minutes after applying before going out in the sun. It may be helpful to apply additional sunscreen over the Biocorneum.
The minimum recommended duration of treatment for new scars is 60 days. For older scars, it is 90 days. Biocorneum is most efficient when it is in contact with the scar 24 hours a day for the entire length of treatment.
Customer reviews of Biocorneum AST from 2021:
“Working great for me!
Dermatologist recommended this product, bioCorneum, for two facial scars from an accident. She told me to wait a full year for the scars to settle. One scar was above my eyebrow and very deep (it needed stitches). The other scar was on the top of the bridge of my nose and did not look like the skin was smoothing out. After six weeks of using as recommended (twice a day), both scars are still visible, but people are already mentioning how good they look and how quickly they heal. The scar on my nose, which worried me the most, is barely visible! I am very happy with the results. I will continue to use bioCorneum until the year is up.”
We have been using this product on our 5 year old for about 4 months. She had 8 stitches right above her eye and we wanted to reduce the appearance of the scar. A friend of ours who is a doctor recommended this product to us. We are very happy with the progress the scar has made with the product. The attached photo shows the scar 10 days after the stitches were removed and 4 months after the stitches were removed.”
