Dermatix Scar Gel
Dermatix Scar Gel Information
As a natural response to broken skin, the body forms collagen fibers and a scar that will normally fade within two years; abnormal scars (hypertrophic and keloid) remain red and raised and can grow bigger. Scars can create problems like itching, pain and restricted movement, as well as lowered self-esteem.
Dermatix Gel has been shown to flatten, soften and reduce scar-associated discoloration in old or new scars and is used in the prevention of abnormal scar formation. Dermatix contains topical silicone gel that rapidly dries to form an invisible "sheet." Dermatix Gel is available without prescription from selected pharmacies, medical supply stores and some physicians' offices.
It is effective for the management and prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars. Dermatix has also been successfully used to manage scars resulting from trauma, burns and surgery.

*Maceration: when the skin becomes pale, moist, wrinkled and soggy, such as when a plaster has been on for too long

To ensure that Dermatix self-dries in 45 minutes
Step 4: Allow to dry for 45 minutes before covering with make-up
Allows for discreet scar remodelling
Step 5: Dermatix dries partially as a result of the temperature difference between the skin and the gel.
If Dermatix has not dried within 45 minutes, you have applied too much remove the excess and allow the drying process to continue.
Faster drying time in warmer weather can be achieved by keeping Dermatix in the fridge before application. In cooler weather faster drying time can be achieved by a medium-to low temperature setting on a blow-dryer.
