While improving the appearance of preexisting scars, can also help prevent scarring disorders, including hypertrophic and keloidal scarring. Both hypertrophic and keloidal scars are the result of excessive collagen produced in the healing process. Due to the excess scar tissue, scars will appear raised, thick, and darker than typical scars. While hypertrophic scars remain confined to the area of the original wound, keloids extend into the surrounding tissue. Scar Cream is designed to prevent the excessive collagen production which causes these disorders.

An anti-allergic drug. Can inhibit collagen synthesis, reducing keloids and hypertrophic scars.
Used to reduce the swelling, itching, and redness that can occur within scars.
