What is FORSCAR? FORSCAR New Scar Technology is made with medical grade patented silicone technology and 5% antioxidant Olive Oil Squalane for helping prevent formation of abnormal scars and reducing appearance of already formed hypertrophic and keloid scars. How does FORSCAR work? FORSCAR New Scar Technology protects the scar from bacterial, chemical and physical invasion and prevents bacteria-induced excessive collagen production in the scar tissue by forming a protective barrier between scar tissue and irritating external elements while preventing moisture loss and restores skin suppleness to reduce, soften and flatten scars. What types of scar does FORSCAR work on? FORSCAR works on both old and new scars including hypertrophic scars and keloids which have a raised and discolored appearance. These types of scars may result from surgical procedures, skin injuries and burns. Can I use FORSCAR on already formed scars? Yes, FORSCAR is effective on old and new scars. It is the best to start applying FORSCAR as soon as the wound has fully closed and sutures have been removed. Scars are not at full maturity for a year or more, therefore, it is possible to improve the appearance of already formed hypertrophic and keloid scars by using FORSCAR for at least 60-90 days. When should I begin using FORSCAR? For post surgical scars, start applying FORSCAR as soon as the wound has fully closed and sutures have been removed. For existing scars, you may begin using FORSCAR right away, provided your skin is fully healed. How long it will take to see results? Immediate results can be seen in 2-6 weeks. For best results, FORSCAR should be used minimum for 2-3 months. If there are still signs of improvement after 90 days of using FORSCAR, continued use is recommended. How long it should stay on my skin? Allow remaining on the skin for 24 hours for maximum effect. Re-apply after bathing or washing. Is FORSCAR Safe? Yes, It is compatible with human biology and tested according to ISO 10993. It is suitable for use on children and sensitive skin.
