Scarguard MD® was the idea of a plastic surgeon who realized that even doctors don't have total control of the healing process. Some people will heal very well with little scarring while others will not be that fortunate.
Equally frustrating was the fact that doctors have known for decades that there are ways to improve scar appearance. However, most people with scars do not know about these treatments because they were not been easy-to-use, and thus have not been recommended widely.
Finally, this problem has been solved. This patented scar treatment is the only product that combines four treatments into an easy-to-use product. Scar guard is a liquid that is easy to apply and dries quickly to a nearly invisible protective film.
Scar Guard combines silicone, a mild cortisone and Vitamin E into an easy scar solution. Applied on overgrown scars it dries within seconds. When used daily, it helps improve the appearance of all scars...
What Have Doctors Used In the Past To Help Scars Look Better?
Pressure- Elastic pressure garments were probably the first truly effective scar treatment
Cortisone decreases irritation making the healing scar more comfortable.
Silicone gel sheeting works by pressure and the silicone inhibiting collagen formation.
Vitamin E helps soften scars.
Problem: Bulky and inconvenient.
Problem: Creams messy, shots uncomfortable. Cortisone tapes hold moisture and fall off.
Problem: Bulky and inconvenient. Silicone sheets may trap too much moisture causing irritation.
Problem: Vitamin E oil is messy and cutting capsules in half is tedious.
Directions: Apply twice daily after washing.
Scarguard is proven to us to be the finest product to help hypertrophic and keloid scars. We love its application and effectiveness. It is our #1 product in addressing this issue."Donald Richey, M.D. Dermatologist, North Valley Dermatology Center, Chico, California
"I have been recommending and have incorporated Scarguard in my practice for the last year. I started slowly with Scarguard and was hesitant about recommending another scar treatment in my practice. Scarguard has received high marks. It has been well accepted by both my patients and staff, and most importantly, it works! Fresh scars settle down more quickly and older scars seem to get that nudge to reach a less noticeable state. The preparation is easy to use. While there is no treatment available that will allow a wound to heal without a any scar, Scarguard comes closest to being able to favorably influence scar formation."Alex Keller, M.D., F.A.C.S. Assistant Clinical Professor at New York University Medical Center Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
"At your suggestion I began recommending Scar Guard to my patients just over one year ago. The patient response has been overwhelmingly positive. Because of its ease of use, patient compliance has been far greater than with other silicone or "scar" formulations. The Collodian "carrier" is flexible, dries quickly, and is well-tolerated. While individual responses can vary widely, I believe that ScarGuard works to some degree in everyone, and can help to prevent or minimize scar hypertrophy, and speed scar "maturation" and resolution."Alan H. Gold, M.D., F.A.C.S. Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center
"I want to thank you for introducing me to Scar Guard. My patients are happy to be helping with their scars and I am convinced that the product really works! I have even seen scars that were stable for many months that have responded and look better. Please pass this feedback onto the manufacturer.Brad J. Jacobs, M.D. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
"During the past 15 months I have utilized "Scar Guard" on a wide variety of patients with existing or potential scar problems. During that time it has been effective as anything I have used in 30 years of practice. Because of its ease of application, patient appreciation and compliance have been high and it has become a regular part of my wound care."Barry H. Dolich M.D., F.A.C.S. Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
"I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for introducing me to Scar Guard. Since initiating its use one year ago, I have found that it not only outperforms any other scar treatment that I've used in the past, the patients actually like using it. My patient compliance rate has been more than double that of any other silicone product used in my practice. The patient's scars are fading and my patients feel they are doing everything possible to facilitate healing. I have shared this information with several other Plastic Surgeons and they have had similar results. This product has proven to be the breakthrough that you said it would be."Dr. Douglas A. Taranow Plastic Surgery
"I am writing to tell you about the great experience I have had with your product Scarguard. As a Nurse Practitioner in the Department of Surgery at a major urban hospital, I have recommended this product to many of our patients over the past year. We have been please with the results, but now I have personal experience with the product and am even more pleased. My husband has undergone scar revision for abdominal surgery and subsequently developed red, firm, raised scars. The scars were also quite uncomfortable. He began using Scarguard one month ago and within 2 weeks the scars were 50% less red and raised and considerably less painful. At one month, he has about 65% improvement and has decided to use the product for an additional month. As a clinician, it is always nice to have good results with products one recommends to patients, but it is even more pleasing to know first hand exactly what to expect. I will be recommending this product consistently in the future. "Lisa King, MS, RN, CS Nurse Practitioner, Department of Surgery, Plastics
"I am sending you this before and after of one of my patients who presented to me with several keloids of the central sternal area. I started her on Scarguard twice a day and got these amazing results in about a month. Incidentally, I also use Scarguard routinely as a prophylactic measure on all my breast reductions and abdominoplasties and have noticed an improvement in the quality of the resultant scars."Robert V. Vitolo M.D., F.A.C.S. Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery New York Medical College Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon
"Our breast reduction patients have been applying Scarguard post-operatively. These patients have a higher incidence of hypertrophic scarring. We have noticed a reduction in the amount of hypertrophic scars in our patients using ScarGuard."Michael S. Beckenstein, M.D. Plastic Surgeon
"I have used Scar Guard in over fifty patients with very satisfactory results. The liquid vehicle allows for easy application, especially over curved or irregular surfaces where traditional bandages won't adhere or are uncomfortable."Keith S. Berman Plastic Surgery
