Pycnogenol for Wound Healing & Scars

Study Suggests Pycnogenol Benefits Skin Healing

In one animal study, experimental wounds were treated with either a placebo gel or a gel containing one percent, two percent or five percent Pycnogenol.

Researchers tracking the healing progress of the wounds reported that the Pycnogenol skin health-supportive biological activities appeared to significantly accelerate the healing process while also reducing scar formation. Researchers observed that as higher PYC concentrations were used in the gels, the Pycnogenol benefits for skin appeared to increase significantly:

Benefits of Pycnogenol Gel applied topically to wounds included faster healing and reduced scarring.

  • Researchers concluded this study by suggesting that Pycnogenol’s multifaceted influence on free radical defense, healthy inflammatory response and collagen-binding accounted for the beneficial results, and stated that Pycnogenol is “potent material for the treatment of minor injuries.”
