Giovene is a clinically proven specialised scar formula which softens, flattens, and lightens scars, helping to reduce the appearance of the scar. The gel dries rapidly to form a protective barrier, is flexible and waterproof and assists with keeping the moisture in.
Giovene scar formula is:
Giovene is suitable for use on scars that result from surgery or accidents (such as cuts, burns, scratches and abrasions). These scars may be large, thick, dry, elevated, or dark/red in appearance. They may also be itchy or even painful. Giovene can be used on the face, body or on keloid scars.
Place a ½ cm amount of Giovene on the tip of your finger and apply to clean, dry, and intact scars (½ cm of gel is sufficient for a 15 cm scar) – adjust quantity depending on the size of scar.
Spread Giovene in one direction 1 – 2 times – do not rub back and forth.
Allow 2 minutes for Giovene to dry. Once dry you can apply cosmetics, moisturiser or sunscreen if required.
For best results, apply Giovene twice daily (morning and evening).
For minor scars (i.e., small burns, cuts, and scratches) you may apply Giovene after the scar has healed or closed.
For major scars (i.e., from surgical wounds) you may start to apply Giovene 10 – 14 days after surgery.
When applying Giovene, use a small amount to cover the scar. Applying a generous amount will not increase the gel's effectiveness.
Initial improvement in scars may be observed after 8 weeks of continued use. Continuous usage for 3 -6 months is required to appreciate the full benefit of Giovene.
