Do you have a problem scar? ScarSil® Silicone gel contains 97% liquid silicone and is a clinically proven way to help reduce the appearance of scars. It is a quick drying topical formula with a smooth finish that helps to reduce the appearance of surgical and problem scarring.
Most of us have at least one scar on our body. When our skin needs to heal a wound caused by a burn, graze or surgical scar, it produces a protein called collagen. Collagen helps to protect and strengthen the scar as it heals. Over a period of around 3 months collagen continues to build where the tissue is damaged. This helps to increase blood flow to the scar causing it to become darker in colour and raised.
Over time the collagen will start to break down which decreases the blood supply. At this point the scar will become flatter and paler.
Problem scarring is caused when our body continues to produce or is unable to sufficiently break down the collagen. Common types of problem scarring are; Hypertrophic and Keloid scars. Hypertrophic scars are raised, red scars and form within the wound site. Keloid scars grow beyond the original wound site, caused by excess tissue.
Silicone Gel is a widely prescribed, clinically proven product which helps improve the appearance of scars. It is applied once the wound is healed.
Silicone gel works by occlusion and rehydration of the scar, preventing excessive collagen formation. This results in a softer, flatter and less prominent scar. Silicone gel also relieves symptoms of pain, discomfort and itching associated with scarring. Silicone products form a waterproof dressing that protects the skin from bacteria which helps to break down excess collagen.
