Hiruscar, Another Innovative Scar Remover!

People are very conscious about their looks, especially on the way their skin has, so that when a scar or flaw appear they get easily frustrated and insecure. That is why most products today are made for skin problems. Thus, another scar remover has introduced to the market that will exactly complement the needs of the consumer.

Hiruscar is a scar remover product made by Medinova Switzerland. It is available in a 5g and 20g tube. It is a product that specializes for reduction of visibility of scar at which 93% average scar healed at end of 12 weeks. It is quick absorbing, non-greasy and film-free clear gel that helps to reduce scar visibility.

Hiruscar contains 6 biomolecular substances that are clinically tested to reduce visibility of scar. Mucopolysaccharide Polysulphate (MPS) and Quercetin from Allium cepa including other four more elements work together for reduction of excessive scar tissue forming.

Ingredients and their action

  1. Mucopolysaccharide Polysulphate (MPS) is an important ingredient of Hiruscar that helps to recover scar tissue by activating the production of hyaluronic acid, which makes the skin cell to be intact and to retain moisture. As result of its action better oxygenation of the the skin, softening the scar and nourishing your skin to produce healthy cell in the scar.
  2. Quercetin (Allium cepa) is an ingredient that impedes the production of excessive tissue. It also reduces the scar size, prevents redness, rashes and black marks.
  3. Allantoin known to retain moisture in the skin and promotes exfoliation of the skin to newer ones.
  4. Aloe vera is acted to promote wound healing and hinders the demaging of skin .
  5. Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is a vitamin that helps to lighten skin and reduces black marks.
  6. Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is a powerful antioxidant and moisturizer.

Scar to be treated

The scar treatment may vary according to condition, size, severity, type and age of the scars. The Hiruscar is used to treat scars or even prevent them from appearing in various causes such as operation, accident, burning, pimple inflammation, chicken pox and also hypertrophic and keloidal scars.

Goal of the treatment

  • Improves skin flawed with scars such as surgery marks by softening them.
  • Lessens the black marks from inflamed pimple scars and bringing smoothness back to your skin.
  • To prevent the onset of bulging red scars that usually appear after wounds have just healed.

Dosage and Administration

Hiruscar is applied gently on closed wounds 2-3 times daily. For those who are using make up and moisturizer, apply first the product before putting them for better absorbance. Special cases of scars the following should be known:

  • For old scars that are thick and bulging, massage the affected area for 2-3 mins, 3-4 times a day and continue doing it for approximately 4-6 months.
  • To prevent fresh wounds from leaving scars, once the wound has closed, apply Hiruscar continually for 4-8 weeks.
  • For surgery and acne marks, 6-8 weeks of continual treatment is suggested.
  • For burns from fires, exhaust pipes and hot water, 8 weeks of continual treatment is suggested.


Various studies were conducted in conjunction with European institutions, such as Dermscan (France) with over 250 subjects varying in age, gender, skin type. Results show a 100% success rate in all cases. Hiruscar is 100% hypoallergenic and safe for use on adults aged 18 years and above. It is 100% alcohol free.

Availability of the product (in the Philippines)

It can be purchased in Mercury Drug, Watsons and South Star Drugstore. 5-gram tube costs P319.00, and the 20-grams tube is P852.00 (prices may vary in different stores).


It can be compared to the two other leading scar removers in the market such as contractubex and dermatix ultra, but which is the most effective. For me I have seen the results of contractubex within 8 weeks wherein the scar lightened and less visible. I cannot testify about the Hiruscar first but in the future I will blog again about the action and result of the three.
