Scarfade Scar Treatment Gel
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 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.
Scar TreatmentIn 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.
Getting Rid of ScarsIn 1997, 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. Asa result, constant skin contact is achieved in a comfortable andconvenient way. Scarfade gel isguaranteed to help beautify scars and quickly fade laser erythema.
I had a pretty bad ankle break (both bones), long story short I needed surgery. Four inch long incision with 12 staples to hold in the plate and eight screws that were installed. This was in February. After several months of using Scarfade, which by the way I am still on the original tube, only using a button size drop a day. I cannot feel any skin imperfection it is as smooth as before and the staple scars are nearly gone. The main incision is about 50% less noticeable as right after surgery. This stuff rocks!!!!!! Thanks for a great product!!!!
