Medical studies have proven that silicone flattens, softens and smooths scar tissue. It also dramatically reduces the redness and relieves the itching and discomfort often associated with scars.
Scar Gel works by bonding to the outer layer of the skin providing a protective barrier against chemical, physical and microbial contamination of the scar site. The gel dries rapidly to form an ultra thin gas permeable and waterproof silicone membrane, which allows the skin underneath to breath, and the scar to mature naturally through normal collagen synthesis. It leaves no residue on the skin so makeup and sunscreen creams can be applied normally.
Scar Gel is safe for use in the hair and on all skin colours and types including people with sensitive skin and children. Depending upon the age and condition of the scar, the recommended initial treatment period is 60-90 days and it can be applied immediately after stitches have been removed and the wound has been closed.
Scar Gel is available in 6g and 15g tubes with a recommended retail price of £9.99 and £24.99 from independent pharmacies or on-line from www.sildermgroup.com
