    InviCible Review


    June 22, 2010

    InviCible Advanced Scar Treatment is a hypoallergenic topical cream developed by Dr. Minas Chrysopoulo.  Disappointed by popular scar treatment creams, Dr. Chrysopoulo, a breast surgeon who also completed a fellowship at Shriner’s Burn Hospital for Children, assembled a team of chemists to create InviCible.  According to the manufacturer, InviCible can treat all types of scars with results visible in just 2-3 weeks.

    Scars1 provided an independent product reviewer, James M. of Massachusetts, with a tube of InviCible.  James applied the cream to his recently acquired surgical scars twice a day for 4 weeks.  Here is his story:


    In January 2010 I had a chest operation that left two nearly symmetrical scars stretching from my armpits to the base of my sternum. The scars healed into very purple, rigid tissue, and parts of them were hard enough that they made raised ridges beneath my skin. The size and symmetry of the scars beg people to ask me about them. The surgery itself was a very emotional and private experience, and to relive it every time someone asked me at the gym or the beach about my chest was very taxing.

    InviCible was a great find. After only two weeks of applying InviCible twice a day to my scars, the scarred skin was noticeably more pliant and soft. By four weeks, my scars had lightened from dark purple to pink. I am very pleased with how rapidly I've seen results with InviCible and I plan to continue using it on my scars, as they are lightening and softening more and more every week.

    I am impressed by how long my bottle of InviCible has lasted; a very small amount of the product can cover all 20 cm of my chest scars. Using the cream twice a day isn't a hassle, either. The cream dries quickly so I can put a shirt on and not worry about it rubbing off. I am most amazed by how much softer and flatter my scars are after using InviCible. I have even become comfortable enough with them to let other people touch my chest again.
