For many in Denver, CO who want to undergo surgery, you’re likely given quite a few steps to take care of the area where the surgery occurred. This is mostly to ensure that complications don’t develop. In some cases, the doctor may be inclined to help you limit the amount of scarring, but this isn’t always the case. Instead, prevention of scarring is largely left for you to deal with. Unless you’re a trained medical professional, too, you might not know about the best measures you can take to prevent scarring. Luckily, Silagen scar treatments have made it easy.
Silagen has developed different scar treatments all revolving around silicone. It is aimed to be used after a surgery, post-laser surgery, with hypertrophic scars, and with keloids in order to prevent scarring. Most people are concerned with the scars they’ll be left with after a surgery is performed. This can often lead them to choose treatments that either minimize the amount of surgical procedure performed or refrain from surgery entirely. Unfortunately, that decision may not result in the most effective treatment. As such, patients can opt for that surgery, take care of whatever problem it is that ails them, and then find relief with Silagen scar treatments.
There are different treatments available. The first contains silicone gel and SPF 30. This bottle has medical-grade silicone as well as zinc oxide. It does include chemical sunscreen. The SPF helps to reduce and prevent UV-induced scar hyperpigmentation when you go outside. It’s also non-comedogenic and non-irritating. As such, this cream is ideal for areas of the chest, face, neck, arms, and hands. Essentially, it should be used on those areas that are exposed to the sun and elements.
The next treatment is 100% pure silicone gel. This bottle also contains medical-grade silicone. It comes with the added benefit of drying faster than other silicone gels. It leaves the skin feeling silky and soft. There aren’t any irritants included in the ingredients.
The final treatment is silicone gel sheeting. This treatment comes in 12 shapes and sizes. It has two backing options of beige and clear. There is also an optimal 1mm thickness which allows the sheet to be flexible all while remaining durable.
Silagen scar treatments can all be used together or alone for maximum benefit depending on the patient in question. The science is simple. Silicone is applied to the skin in areas where surgery was performed to prevent an increased production of collagen that forms scars.
