Thereafter, one should wait for 15 minutes before exposing the skin to the sun. This treatment should be continued for 12 weeks. As a general rule, the treatment for new scars takes 60 days and for older scars, 90 days. However, the treatment may stretch from 6 to 12 months. Nonetheless, the treatment should remain on the skin for 24 hours a day for best results.

The conclusion of our Sientra BioCorneum Scar Treatment review
This product is meant for new and old scars. In addition, the application is easy and dries fast. Cosmetics may be readily applied over the product. However, even though the company offers a 100% guarantee on its products, the return policy contradicts this, the items having to be returned within 45 days. The company deducts shipping and handling fees, as well as a restocking fee if the item has been used. In addition, the company will charge a shipping fee even if you didn’t pay this on a purchase. Besides the costs of the product, even though the company has declared that the product should be used for 12 weeks, treatment may last for 6 to 12 months, without any guarantee that there will be positive results. This is a concern, particularly since many customers indicated that the product had not worked for them.
