SCAR THERAPY PRODUCTS AND TREATMENTS
Silagen Scar Therapy® Silcone Gel and Sheeting
Clinical studies show a greater and faster improvement in scar maturation in patients who use silicone over patients who do not. Early intervention is the best way to help prevent excessive scarring. For patients who have older surgical scars, silicones have been used for more than 30 years to reduce the appearance of hypertrophic scars and keloids. It has been proven to flatten, soften, and reduce the redness associated with excessive scaring.
Silagen silicone gel and sheeting are made with the highest quality medical silicones. Silagen gels will not leave a wet, sticky mess on your skin like other gels do due to its silky feel. The 1mm thick sheets, strips and shapes feature an advanced adhesion technology, allowing them to adjust well to the body and still be durable enough to last for up to four weeks.
Silagen gels and sheets create a protective barrier over the scar. This protective barrier helps stop excessive collagen build up while increasing hydration. This will help flatten and soften your scar, and reduce itching, redness and pain. The sunscreen in Silagen Silicone Gel +SPF30 helps to protect your scar from hyperpigmentation, and permanent darkening of the scar caused by sun exposure.
