This is a review of CicaSolution Scar Management. This is a product that is actually for bruise treatment. However, the product has also been proven to heal scars and sprains. It may help minimize a scar’s appearance on the skin. The product works even for surgery scars and keloids.
The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is your greatest protection against pathogens that can make you ill. If you’ve ever had an open skin injury, you probably noticed a scar after healing. Scars are part of the body’s healing process. Their visibility depends on several different factors including: nature of the injury; healing time; age; race — high levels of melanin in the skin will make a scar worse.
There are a variety of products on the market and sorting through them and selecting the best one for your needs can be confusing. Many companies trying to cash in on trends do not really care about the quality of their product, therefore their products may be ineffective. We decided to conduct some independent online research to learn about this product. Read on to find out if this product is right for your needs.
The main component found in Hirudoid is mucopolysaccharides or MPS. MPS works by attracting water on the affected area. This in turn loosens the strong fiber that forms the scar, resulting in a flat and smooth appearance.

- Purified water
- Stearic acid

It is advised to apply the cream twice a day on the affected area. Massage until the skin absorbs the cream. The product can also be used in children. Avoid applying on open wounds or fresh scars. Before application, make sure to clean and dry the area. Apply daily until scar appearance diminishes. Make sure to check with your physician before using. If an allergic reaction or rash develops, discontinue using the product.
