I was given the opportunity to try Dr. H. Bellin™ Swiss Skin Care-Scar & Stretch Mark Body Cream specifically for use on my son Jacob’s severe scarring from a recent burn. We have had a lot of difficulty controlling the “hypertrophic” scarring on his arm and wrist and it is starting to affect mobility in his wrist as the scar grows and contracts the skin. If we can’t stop it from growing out of control then he will have to have another surgery this summer which we hope to avoid at all cost.
My little guy wears a pressure garment on his arm 23 hours a day (up to 18 months) and I have to massage his scar daily with cream. I have used Dr. H. Bellin™ Swiss Skin Care-Scar & Stretch Mark Body Cream on Jacob’s arm for two full weeks in order to adequately give it a chance to work. I have no expectation that any cream will have the ability to stop the scarring but we are certainly heading in the right direction if it softens the area. It did! The thick cream instantly absorbed into his arm and wrist as if it were drinking it and the area was much more pliable and softer so that I could do the therapy massage twice a day. A very small amount went a long way and his scar and surrounding skin felt a lot better to the touch.
Dr. H. Bellin™ Swiss Skin Care-Scar & Stretch Mark Body Cream was created by Dr. Howard Bellin, an internationally renowned plastic surgeon and former professor of dermatology along with a top notch team of scientists. It was created using the highest quality ingredients including peptides, hyaluronic acids (I love this!), vitamin B and “pure Swiss edelweiss extract.”
Jacob has come to expect his twice daily treatments and the other night I was so busy that I forget. Even though he is only 3 years old he obviously appreciates how this cream makes his skin/scar feel better because he came over and held out his arm and asked for his “special massage cream.”
