Silicone therapy is the use of a silicone base product to reduce the inflammation and appearance of scars.
Silicone is used because it has been proven in Clinical Trials to reduce scar appearance and redness. i Over time it will make the skin tissue and scar blend more naturally in colour by keeping the entire area moisturised.
How does it work?
The Silicone completely covers the treatment area for an even spreading of necessary hydration, and exposure to oxygen. Silicone is semipermeable, allowing oxygen to enter while keeping the necessary moisture. This results in having the ideal conditions for healing to take place.
This ideal healing environment at the stratum corneum signals keratinocytes to reduce the production of collagen which prevents abnormal scarring.
Skin that is hydrated and oxygenated allows the surrounding healthy tissue to better blend with scar tissue, the end result is a smoother, flatter scar and skin with a more natural colour. Silicone is non-toxic, safe and easy to use, even on sensitive skin.
