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.
Being burned with boiling water on October 25, over approximately 5 inches of my lower torso, was not only painful but left a very ugly reminder. I heard about ScarFade scar cream shortly after Thanksgiving and ordered my tube to start decreasing the appearance of my scar in early December. Shipping was immediate and I started the regimen. After the first few weeks, the redness and discoloration was so significant, I had to take pictures for comparison so I could be sure my recollection of the original scar was as bad as it was comparatively! The size was significantly decreased, the coloring lightened and overall appearance less noticeable. Mine looks great – way better than I imagined after only three short months! THANK YOU SCARFADE! In fact, the results were so amazing, I only needed half the tube! I gave the remainder to my mother, who has a scar from this Thanksgiving where a crystal platter fell off a shelf onto her forehead (several stitches, a cold turkey and very noticeable facial scar later…). She just began the regimen and we can’t wait to see the results!
