KeloCoteDr. Linder is proud to be an advocate as well as a specialist for Kelo-cote on their recent infomercial now playing throughout the United States.  Because a disproportionately large part of Dr. Linder’s practice is body sculpting women, scarring is an inevitable concern, especially with the multitude of breast lifts and abdominoplasty surgeries.

Having used Kelo-cote for over two years, Dr. Linder has found it to be extremely helpful when used after sutures are removed, twice a day, for at least three months.  Bio corneum is a new product with the Kelo-cote component as well as the SPF to reduce problems associated with the UV light.  Bio corneum is used for management and preventing keloids and hypertrophic scarring.  It is excellent for patients who have had surgical scarring and desires to have less redness, smoothing, flattening and less visibility of scars.

The benefits of Bio corneum include:  it’s 100% silicone scar treatment with SPF30.  It dries within 45 minutes.  It flattens and softens scars, reducing redness and discoloration.  It also relieves itchiness and discomfort.  The SPF30 of the Bio corneum reduces sun-induced redness discoloration.  Bio corneum and Kelo-cote are excellent products for scarring.  Dr. Linder uses them every day on his patients who have postsurgical scars associated with augmentation, breast revision, breast lift and abdominoplasty procedures.
