Caused by accident, surgery and even diseases, scars are a natural part of the healing process. Scars occur as the wound heals and the skin is repaired and are influenced by 5 factors:
- Genetics (skin types)
- Location on the body
- Previous history
- Wound infection
Regardless of where the scar is or even how old it is they can sometimes have distressing side effects such as:
- Social anxiety
- And generally low self-esteem
The good news is that you do not have to wait for time to improve your scars.
Dermatix® – available in a range of silicone based products is clinically proven to significantly improve the appearance of scars.
Suitable for existing prominent immature and new scars, Dermatix® even reduces scarring following surgery, burns and other injuries.
Dermatix® is available as a Silicone Gel. Silicone is the most frequently used non-invasive treatment in scar management.
Problems with scars
Scars may take many months to flatten and fade after injury, but problematic scars may have the following effects:
