What is a Scar Improvement Test?
Scar improvement ( scar reduction) test is a clinical trial to evaluate a tested product for the effect on scar reduction in comparison to the baseline (untreated) skin. This test is conducted by recruiting 10 individual volunteers between the ages of 20 and 60. However, the selection of volunteers can be customized based on the target groups of the tested product. Those volunteers will be using the tested products for a period of time. The length of time will be 4, 8, and 12 weeks. The testing of a scar improvement test is conducted with international standard modern equipment.
A signed informed consent is obtained before the volunteers are admitted to participate in the trial.
The test will be closely observed and monitored by experienced and accredited clinical evaluators or professionals. The findings during the testing period will be recorded in photographs. The efficacy and performance of the tested product will be evaluated and determined after the end of the test period. The findings of the product analysis and performance will be detailed in a report.
Some of efficacy performance tests such as Whitening / Lightening / Brightening, Depigmentation, Anti-wrinkles, Firming, Moisturizing, Non-comedogenic / Non-acnegenic, Scar Improvement, Non-drying/Transepidermal water loss (TEWL), and Sebum-Control can be conducted as a bundle or individually.
