Introducing Dermatix® Scar Management Products

0

*Sponsored post by Dermatix®*

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: 

  • Age
  • 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:

  • Depression
  • Social anxiety
  • Avoidance
  • And generally low self-esteem

The good news is that you do not have to wait for time to improve your scars.

Dermatix®

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:

  • Grow bigger
  • Remain red/dark and raised without fading
  • Cause discomfort, itching or pain
  • Restrict the movement of a joint
  • Cause distress because of appearance

Dermatix® is used and recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and leading specialists worldwide, to effectively treat and reduce scarring.

It is clinically proven to soften, flatten and smooth scars, relieving the itching, pain and discomfort associated with them.[1]

Where can you apply it?

Dermatix® is easily applied to all areas of the body, including the face, joints and other parts of the skin.

How to use Dermatix® Silicone Gel

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

  • Step 1: Clean the area to be treated with mild soap and water, pat dry.
  • Step 2: 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.
  • Step 3: Allow to dry for 4 – 5 minutes. If the gel has not dried, remove the excess product.

1 APPLICATION 2X A DAY IN THE MORNING AND EVENING (1x a day under occlusive bandage)

You can apply make-up over the Dermatix® to cover scar. The recommended minimum duration of treatment is two months, but you can continue to use Dermatix® for as long as benefits are experienced
