Scar Zone is a company that offers treatment products that can help diminish the appearance of scars, and offers a Burn Gel to reduce skin damage from fresh burns.
In this review, I will explain how this scar treatment works, the ingredients, the pros and cons, and overall rating as a scar reduction treatment.

You can apply the treatment on normal to sensitive skin types. The product comes in either a cream or gel formulation depending on the type of scar you wish to treat.
Treatment Formula and Directions for Use
The Advanced Scar Cream is a new treatment formula that contains clinically effective ingredients to help restore elasticity, hydrate scar tissue, and diminish skin inflammation.

Pricing and Value of Product
Customers appreciate the low cost of this scar treatment, but many don't see a drastic improvement in the appearance of their scar, especially if it's old. This could be due to the fact that Scar Zone doesn't include an exfoliator with their system to help remove old scar tissue.
The Advanced Scar Cream comes in a 0.75-ounce tube and costs around $15. The Burn Gel comes in a 0.5-ounce tube and costs around $11.
How long the product lasts depends on daily usage. Because both formulations are available at both retail and online stores, it is simple to purchase more when your supply starts to run low.
Pros and Cons
Like any product, there are good and bad points associated with its use. Here are the pros and cons reported for this scar treatment.
- Use on any scar type
- Use on any skin type
- Safe for adults and children two and over
- Burn gel has antiseptic and analgesic
- Problems with the rollerball applicator
- Not effective on old scars
- Takes up to three months to see improvement
- Scar improvement is less than expected
Science Behind the Product
When the dermis layer of your skin is damaged, the body forms new collagen fibers to heal the damage which results in a scar that can leave redness and uneven texture.
The ingredient formulation in Scar Zone is made to help your body reduce discoloration and plump tissues to flatten the appearance of scars. Depending on age, severity, location, and skin type of the scar will determine the length of time treatment is needed to see results. You can use the Advanced Scar cream once a wound has closed. Most users notice a fair amount of improvement within 90 days of daily use on newer scars.
The Burn Gel is for use on first degree and minor second-degree burns, cuts, and abrasions. You can apply it to wounds immediately to heal, prevent infection, reduce pain, and help eliminate scarring. The company recommends you treat burns with this gel for no more than one week.
If you suffer from acne, Scar Zone A is a unique formula meant to help treat acne by stopping breakouts and also works to lessen old acne scars.
