Full Description

New For The Treatment and Prevention of Red Raised Scars, Old or New.
Clinically proven to flatten and reduce the redness of scars.
Recommended by Physicians around the world.

 

How Scars are Formed?

Scars are usually formed from a trauma or injury. This can be the result of surgery, a burn or an accident. Anything that causes the skin to break will cause a scar, and in some people the scars will get better. In a large proportion of people, the scars will remain red and raised and these need to be treated with a safe effective product that is clinically proven to work.

Some people heal slower than others and they are more likely to get scars. If the scar is still red and raised after 2 weeks then SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray should be used to reduce the redness and flatten the scars.

If you know that you scar easily or have a family member that scars then you should use SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray as soon as the skin has healed. Early use has been clinically proven to prevent scar formation1.

 

HYPERTROPHIC SCARS:

The majority of people that scar develop Hypertrophic scars. These are red and raised, generally along the length of the trauma

 

 

BURN SCARS

The majority of burns will cause scars as they tend to heal slower than most other types of wounds. Burn scars are actually hypertrophic scars. Early treatment is recommended and the use of Silicone scar gel plus massage normally produces the best outcome.

 

KELOIDS

Keloids are a different type of scar to the above and tend to be harder to treat. Keloids are normally formed after a trauma or wound, but spread away from the original wound. Very light skin and very dark skin tend to be more prone to Keloids and there is believed to be a genetic link to the formation of keloids.

 

ATROPHIC SCARS

These scars are usually indented and result from acne or chicken pox. These scars are notoriously difficult to treat and SilDerm™ Scar Gel will not be effective against these scars. Other treatments have been proven to work and some are available from the makers of SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray.

 

What is SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray?

SilDerm™ Scar Gel &Spray have a unique blend of naturally occurring silicones. Silicone has been clinically proven in numerous studies to reduce the redness of scars, flatten scars and minimise the pain and itchiness2, 3. SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray silicone ingredients works and Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists support the use of silicone in the management of scars. SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray is an easy to apply product that dries quickly to form a barrier that helps heal the scar.

Why is SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray used by Physicians?

SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray is widely used to treat and prevent scars by Physicians. Physicians choose a product based upon the evidence that is available to prove that it works and it is safe. The components of SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray have been extensively researched and they are known to have a good or very good effect in about 80% of patients4.

 

What should I expect with SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray?

SilDerm™ Scar Gel& Spray will take about three months to work, on the majority of scars but some results should be seen after about two weeks. The scar will flatten and the redness start to get lighter. The larger the scar, or the older the scar, the longer it will take so keep using SilDerm™ Scar Gel& Spray until you stop seeing an improvement.

Will SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray work on old scars?

There is good evidence that SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray are effective against old scars, sometimes up to 20 years old. If the scar is red and raised then you should try SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray. If it is flat, indented or white rather than red and raised, then SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray will have little effect.

 

How long should I use SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray?

You should use SilDerm™ Scar Ge & Sprayl for a minimum of 3 months, or until you stop seeing an improvement. Larger scars, burn scars and older scars may take longer.

 

How much SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray should I use?

SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray are most effective when a thin layer is applied over the scar. This will ensure that the scar is healed as quickly as possible and dries quickly.

Tips to improve your scars

All scars get worse in the sun. Stay out of the sun if you have a scar or cover the scar.

As well as using SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray, massage the scar with a simple moisturising cream. Use a simple cream with no perfumes or additives in.

Don’t massage SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray into the area. Apply a thin layer and leave it to dry.

If you have a history of scarring then use SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray as soon as the wound has healed. Early use of SilDerm™ Scar Gel has been proven to reduce the chance of scars developing by up to 60%5.

If you think that you have a Keloid scar then speak to a Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon or Scar Specialist, who will advise the best combination treatments to use with SilDerm™ Scar Gel & Spray.
