Skinuva® Scar FAQ
Is Skinuva® patented?
Skinuva™ is now fully patented. We use a patented formula for our next generation scar cream, Skinuva®
What are the ingredients?
Skinuva™ Scar contains a proprietary set of ingredients, including selective Growth Factors which have been shown to mimic scarless fetal healing. These ingredients have been shown to improve the appearance of scars through peer-reviewed medical literature.
INGREDIENTS: Water/Aqua/Eau, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, PPG-12/SMDI Copolymer, Ethoxydiglycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Centella Asiatica Extract, sh-Polypeptide-5, sh-Oligopeptide- 1, sh-Polypeptide- 1, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
Does Skinuva® Scar have SPF?
We have not included SPF in our formula. SPF is a thick chemical that can be a barrier to our ingredients working synergistically together in order improve the appearance of the scars. We believe our unique formulation using selective Growth Factors and our natural ingredients allow Skinuva® Scar to perfom so well and better than silicone cream alone.
However, SPF can be applied on top of Skinuva® Scar without affecting the healing process. We have specifically formulated a scar cream that allows the user to safely apply sunblock to those scars that are visible to the outside world on top of Skinuva® Scar after its application.
Are Growth Factors safe?
We use medical grade synthetic Growth Factors that are made in a sterile fashion in a laboratory. Our Growth Factors are not human, stem-cell, or plant derived. There is adequate peer-reviewed medical literature evidence to support the safety and efficacy of Growth Factors in treating skin conditions and anti-aging. Growth factors have been routinely included in many high-end skin care lines over the past 15 years, with no issues of long term complications or adverse reactions.
Was any animal testing done in developing and testing Skinuva® Scar?
We did not perform animal testing in our clinical development and testing stages of Skinuva® Scar. Skinuva® Scar is 100% cruelty-free.
What makes Skinuva® Scar so unique as a scar cream?
Skinuva® Scar is a physician designed and clinically tested scar cream that uses highly selective Growth Factors within a silicone cream matrix to help improve the appearance of scars. Skinuva’s rigorous clinical studies have shown that Skinuva® Scar improves the appearance of scars nearly two-times better when compared to silicone cream.
Unlike other scar creams on the market, Skinuva® Scar is the only one that uses selective Growth Factors and other ingredients that have been shown to help improve the appearance of scars using peer-reviewed medical literature.
How often do I apply Skinuva® Scar?
In order to see optimal results, Skinuva® is to be applied twice a day for 3-6 months.
When can I begin using Skinuva® Scar?
Typically, a patient can begin to use Skinuva® 2-3 weeks post procedure, or after the incision site has begun to scab over. However, it is always best to consult with your doctor before beginning use.
How do I order Skinuva® Scar?
If you are a patient, Skinuva® is sold directly to physicians. To find a physician that sells Skinuva®, please visit our “Consumers" page.
Which size should I buy, the 30gm or 50gm?
Skinuva® comes in two different sizes, the smaller (30gm or 1oz) can be used for smaller scars, ideally less than 6 inches. Eyelid surgery, breast augmentation, small dermatology procedures, and rhinoplasty surgery are great examples.
The larger size (50gm or 1.7oz) can be used for larger scars (>6 inches) such as facelift, breast reduction, tummy tuck scars. Skinuva® should be used twice a day for a minimum of three months.
Does Skinuva Scar also help improve Stretch Marks?
Yes, Skinuva Scar has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks. We have seen in our research, which we published our data in the Journal of Cosmetic Sciences, that stretch marks improve with the use of Skinuva Scar.
Can Skinuva Scar be used in children, pregnant women, and/or women who are breastfeeding?
Skinuva Scar does not include ingredients known to be potentially harmful to children, babies, pregnant women, or women who are nursing when the product is used as directed. While no testing has been performed on children under 18, or pregnant and/or breastfeeding women with the formulation itself, it should be safe for these potential users.
