Scar Treatment

MEDGEL

Medgel is an advanced line of silicone gel products for treatment or prevention of recent or old scars, keloids and hypertrophic scars. The product acts as an auxiliary in the process of renewal and regeneration of the dermis, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. It improves the texture, coloring and hydration of the treated area, increasing skin softness.

 

The product’s basic constituent is medical-grade silicone and it does not contain any components of animal origin and is free of all biological contaminants. It can be used in conjunction with other complementary treatments. Medgel is contraindicated for open wounds, infected areas and unhealthy tissue.

 

Medgel is offered in the form of sheets, which can be trimmed to adapt to the size of the scar. Transparent, thin and flexible, they smoothly adhere to the tissue and the fragile skin, adapting to the body contours. Waterproof and vapor permeable, the sheets can be comfortably used all day long. They are reusable, and removal is easy and fast. Read the instructions for use.

 

It is also supplied in the form of cream.
