SILICONE IN SCAR TREATMENT
Silicones reduce water loss in the upper layer of the skin. The natural moisture of the skin is preserved, which prevents the scar area from drying out. The scar becomes softer and less itchy. The air-permeable properties of our silicone overlays can also ensure sufficient oxygen exchange and have a positive effect on the scar tissue.
Our CuraScar silicones are ideal for the care of scars resulting from surgical procedures. The risk of excessive scarring in the wound area can be minimised by using silicone overlays and compression. Applied early in the treatment phase and after complete wound closure, CuraScar silicones can positively influence scar healing. Our silicone patches are made from 100% medical grade silicone. As they are soft, highly elastic and very adaptable, wearing them is perceived as comfortable and not bothersome.
