bioCorneum®+ is now available and value priced at Contemporary Design, Inc.  The invisible protective barrier is breathable, flexible, waterproof, and the only silicone scar gel that provides protection from the sun.

bioCorneum®+ binds with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of skin cells) to protect the underlying tissue against chemical, microbial and physical invasion of the scar.

bioCorneum®+ hydrates the scarred area and creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normal collagen synthesis cycles and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.

Sun may hamper proper healing of scars and the SPF 30 UV protection ingredients in bioCorneum®+ may protect the maturing scar from the darkening effects of sun exposure, a feature unique to bioCorneum®+ as it is the only patented silicone scar treatment of this kind.


Plastic surgeons spur shatterproof windshields

CDI - History of Plastic SurgeryDuring the 1930’s Doctors concerned with the number and the severity of facial lacerations due to car accidents and the broken glass involved in those accidents lead to the development of the shatterproof windshield.  A group of plastic surgeons and emergency medical physicians approached a consortium of companies, and shatterproof windshields were born.

 Thanks in part to their lobbying efforts, shatterproof glass became a mainstay in all car windshields. And plastic surgeons didn’t stop there: Dr. Claire Straith, a member of the newly formed American Society of Plastic Surgeons, met with automobile manufacturers in 1934, leading to the development of numerous safety considerations for automobile interiors.
