Description

Medically proven effective scar treatment

The International Advisory Panel on Scar Management recommends the use of Silicone Gel Sheeting in the management of scars, based on a review of over 300 publications. The Panel states that silicone gel sheeting has been a widely used clinical management option for hypertrophic and keloid scars since the early 1980s, that there is now good evidence of its efficacy and it has now become standard care for plastic surgeons.

Results from at least eight randomised, controlled trials and a meta-study of 27 trials demonstrate that silicone gel sheeting is a safe and effective management option for hypertrophic and keloid scars. It is therefore recommended as first line therapy for linear (surgical/traumatic) scars.

Most researchers believe that silicone acts by creating a hydrated, occluded environment that decreases blood capillary activity, thereby reducing collagen production and scar hypertrophy. This in turn leads to wound flattening.

Scar Fx is high quality, medical grade silicone sheeting designed for the treatment of scars. Scar Fx is the only silicone sheeting in Australia that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes tailored for the needs of different anatomical locations. The use of Scar Esthetique Scar Creme with Scar Fx silicone occlusive sheeting has been shown to lead to 82% scar improvement.

Dosage

How to apply:

Apply to clean dry scar after peeling the plastic protective sheeting from both sides of the silicone. Place the sticky side against your scar. It may be necessary to hold Scar Fx in place with hypoallergenic tape to assure correct placement of Scar Fx. Scar Fx should be a suitable size to cover the scar, allowing an overlapping edge of centimetre. Scar Fx should be applied 8-12 hours daily.

When Scar Fx Silicone Sheeting becomes less sticky, you may need to secure it in place with hypoallergenic tape or suitable type of wrap.

Warnings

Apply only after the skin has completely healed and must not be used on open or weeping areas.

Amazing product. Am using to heal five hypotrophic scars. All five scars are now flat since using this product daily. Scars were originally dark red/purple and are now pale pink after using product for a month. Very happy with results. Continuing to use product to maximise scar healing. Would highly recommend.
