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.
My name is Sue Newman and I have had six separate skin cancer spots surgically removed in the last twelve years. The latest one done on my upper arm in September 2012.
I was given a tube of Scarfade to use on this latest scar. I began using the ointment after my stitches were removed. I apply it in the morning after my shower and again before going to bed at night. I’ve been very pleased with the results. This scar has healed faster than my other scars did in the past. The redness faded quickly and the raised thickened skin of the scar has flattened out and is smooth now. There was a bump on the end of this scar when it was new that I didn’t think would smooth down and it’s gone now too. I’m still using the ointment twice daily and feel it’s still improving the look of the scar. I would highly recommend Scarfade to anyone I know. It works!
