Scarfade is a topical treatment that helps to reduce scarring on the skin. Medically-proven studies show that silicone scar gel helps the body slow down production of collagen and, when used as directed, reduces scars. Use Scarfade gel or gel sheeting on scars from cuts, burns, surgical incisions, sports injuries and auto accidents.
What Is A Scar?
The normal scar forming process begins with any trauma to the skin which injures the dermis and causes bleeding. The skin is made up of three layers. The deepest layer is called the dermis. When the dermis is injured by a deep wound, a scar naturally occurs to bind the edges of a wound together. All deep incisions through the dermis will form a scar.
In certain patients, scars can become raised, reddened and firm. These "hyper" enlarged scars are called hypertrophic scars. Treatment for hypertrophic scars includes cortisone injections, pressure dressings and surgical removal. Another effective treatment for hypertrophic scars called Silicone Gel Sheeting was developed within the last decade.
This silicone scar gel sheeting is a thick sheet of silicone with a sticky undersurface. It is applied to the scar with the sticky side down and worn for as long as possible. Silicone therapy is a well-established medical practice for scar treatment, yet it is only effective when constant skin contact is achieved.
Getting Rid of Scars
In 1998, Scarfade was introduced in the form of a topical silicone scar gel which is applied like a cream. It forms a micro-thin layer of silicone on the scar and can be worn under cosmetics. As a result, constant skin contact is achieved in a comfortable and convenient way.
Scarfade gel is guaranteed to help beautify scars and quickly fade laser erythema. It is designed to provide a silicone micro-membrane, which moisturizes without skin maceration. This unique scar treatment formula is easily applied, dries quickly and leaves no sticky residue. It is available without a prescription. Learn more about Scarfade products here.
