Episode Description

A common misconception is that plastic surgeons have some special magic that can take scars completely away. Scar removal is not really possible. The truth is, good technique can lead to minimal scars, but nothing can take them away. If you get a cut, you get a scar; forever. However, some exciting products now promise to advance the fight against scars and help minimize them even more than ever before. This episode is all about treating scars. Whether from an accident, an injury, or even from your cosmetic procedure, there are exciting options to reduce the resulting scars. Joining us this week will be Zubin Meshginpoosh, COO of Enaltus, makers of Biocornueum, a topical silicone product for scars. We will also talk with Zee Protic form New Medical Technologies who will talk about sheets you can use to help your healing. And anchoring the panel will be Dr. Michael Longacre, founder of Neodyne, who will tell us about his exciting new product Embrace that takes the tension off healing wounds helping them heal best. Listen in to learn some tricks to reduce your scars. Call the show at 866-472-5792 to have your questions answered on the air. Join us Saturday 12-1PM EST, 9-10AM PST on New Reflections.
