Dermatix Silicone Scar Gel Information
What is Dermatix Silicone Gel and what is it used for?
Dermatix Silicone Gel is a powerful scar treatment designed to support the moisture in the skin to encourage efficient healing following surgery, burns or injury. This transparent gel dries quickly to flatten and soften scar tissue, effectively fading dark, red or angry scars.
Each tube contains 15 grams of gel and is designed to be used daily for at least 2 months. The ingredients are soothing and gentle easing itching and irritation nourishing your skin helping it look and feel healthier.
What scars can Dermatix Silicone Gel be used to treat?
Dermatix Gel is suitable for the management of all scars caused by burns, injury or surgery. This gel can be used anywhere on the body, including the face. It should not be used on the broken or infected skin and should not be used too close to the eyes.
How does Dermatix Scar Gel work?
Silicone gels are a gentle but effective solution for helping reduce the appearance and irritation of scars. They work by creating a film over the scar which encourages moisture to be retained within the scar tissue. This process slows the production of collagen within the healing skin resulting in scars becoming flatter and softer as well as correcting discolouration.
How quickly does Dermatix Silicone Gel work?
Dermatix Gel starts the process of scar management and improvement from its very first application, however, for best results, the gel needs to be applied twice daily in a thin layer for at least 2 months. People that continue using silicone gels for extended periods of time see the most remarkable improvements to their scars long-term.
