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. 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.
I began using Scarfade on the scar I received from a cesarean section in June 2010. Part of my scar was puckered from a section of bad stapling in which my skin had been folded. I saw results within weeks! I continued to use the gel for 6 months, and after comparing with a friend that also had a c-section, I believe without a doubt that Scarfade made a huge, positive difference in the appearance of my scar. The scar is so fine now that I have to point it out to others for them to notice it and you can’t see any difference between the area my skin was stapled badly and the area it wasn’t! Thank you, Scarfade!
