EXPERT OPINION

Alex Keller, M.D., F.A.C.S. Assistant Clinical Professor at New York University Medical Center Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon

“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 any scar, Scarguard comes closest to being able to favorably influence scar formation.”

Alan H. Gold, M.D., F.A.C.S. Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center

“At your suggestion I began recommending Scarguard 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 collodion “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.”

Barry H. Dolich M.D., F.A.C.S. Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

“During the past 15 months I have utilized “Scarguard” on a wide variety of patients with existing or potential scar problems. During that time it has been as 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.”

Brad J. Jacobs, M.D. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

“I want to thank you for introducing me to Scarguard. My patients are happy to have help with their scars and I am convinced that the product really works! I have even seen scars that were stable for many months respond and look better. Please pass this feedback onto the manufacturer.”

Lisa King, MS, RN, CS Nurse Practitioner, Department of Surgery, Plastics

“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 pleased 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 two 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. “

“I am sending you this before and after of one of my patients who presented 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.”

Michael S. Beckenstein, M.D. Plastic 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.”

Keith S. Berman, M.D. Plastic Surgery

“I have used Scarguard 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.”
