How Dermatix Works:


Silicone gel sheeting is the choice of plastic surgeons worldwide. A publication by the International Advisory Panel on Scar Management, a group of skin specialists, recommended the use of Silicone Gel sheeting for the treatment of a wide variety of scars. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons have used Silicone Gel sheeting as an effective treatment for scars for many years.

Unlike other scar treatments, Dermatix products can be applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints and flexures. This gives you a choice of treatment options.


Several aspects of mechanisms 
For silicone, several mechanisms of action have been proposed in relation to scar management. However, the exact mechanism of action by which Silicone Gel works is still unknown.

Many have agreed that it acts at the stratum corneum (the uppermost layer of the epidermis), which reduces evaporation and restore homeostasis. A group of publications have also demonstrated the in-vitro, positive effect of silicone over growth factors and collagen concentration.



How to Use Dermatix Silicone Gel


Dermatix gel is very simple to apply and should be used at least twice a day:

Clean the area to be treated with mild soap and water, pat dry.

Cut the tip of the tube. Apply a very thin coat of Dermatix® Gel on the scar immediately after the wound has healed and rub it in.

Allow to dry for 4 – 5 minutes. If the gel has not dried, remove the excess product.
