For scar remodeling and abnormal scar prevention.
Individuals often seek to reduce the impact of abnormal scars resulting from surgery, burns or any trauma that results in a break in the skin. As a natural response to broken skin, the body forms collagen fibers and a scar that will normally fade within two years; abnormal scars (hypertrophic and keloid) remain red and raised and can grow bigger. Scars can create problems like itching, pain and restricted movement, as well as lowered self-esteem.
Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment has been shown to flatten, soften and reduce scar-associated discoloration in old or new scars and is used in the prevention of abnormal scar formation. Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment contains topical silicone gel that rapidly dries to form an invisible "sheet." Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment is available without prescription from selected pharmacies, medical supply stores and some physicians' offices.
Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment is a patented proprietary formula containing bio-inert and biocompatible silicone compounds, namely polysiloxane, silicon dioxide and nonvolatile silicone components. It uses basic long-chain polymers as topical silicone-gel sheeting. The result is a waterproof, gas-permeable membrane that acts like an extra layer of skin. It helps to soften and flatten the scar and to reduce pain, itching and scar-associated discoloration, while maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the adjacent skin.
