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.
Although it had been over 7 months since my last surgery when I started using Scarfade, I was amazed at the difference it made. After 2 surgeries and difficulties with healing, my scar had been very deep and dark. Scarfade aided in the skin restoration and fading of the scar. I love the product and would like another brochure (I lost mine) to share with my ankle surgeon. Thank you for including me in your study!
