Silagen Scar Refinement System
Clinical studies have shown a greater and faster improvement in scar maturation in patients who use silicone over patients who do not. Early intervention is the best way to help prevent excessive scarring. Silicone can help to flatten, soften and reduce the redness associated with excessive scarring. It can also help to improve the appearance of hypertrophic and keloid scarring.
Silagen is made with the highest quality medical grade silicone. It is available as a gel and as a sheet. The product works by creating a protective barrier over the scar, which increases hydration and helps to reduce excessive collagen build up. Patients can begin to use silicone products as soon as the incision is fully closed, usually at about 2 weeks. Treated is followed for 2-3 months.
The gel is available as 100% Pure Silicone Gel, or as Silicone Gel + SPF 30. It is widely accepted that sun exposure can cause scars to darken. The Silicone Gel + SPF 30 is ideal for use on parts of the body that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, or legs. Makeup and other skin care can easily be applied over the silicone gel products.
Silagen is only sold in approved physician offices. Ask our staff how Silagen Scar Refinement System can help improve the appearance of your scars.
