As a natural response to broken skin, the body forms collagen fibers and a scar that will normally fade within two years; abnormal scars (hypertrophic and keloid) remain red and raised and can grow bigger. Scars can create problems like itching, pain and restricted movement, as well as lowered self-esteem.
Dermatix Gel has been shown to flatten, soften and reduce scar-associated discoloration in old or new scars and is used in the prevention of abnormal scar formation. Dermatix contains topical silicone gel that rapidly dries to form an invisible "sheet." Dermatix Gel is available without prescription from selected pharmacies, medical supply stores and some physicians' offices.
It is effective for the management and prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars. Dermatix has also been successfully used to manage scars resulting from trauma, burns and surgery.
Dermatix should not be applied to open or fresh wounds, placed in contact with mucous membranes or too close to the eyes.
Dermatix should not be applied over antibiotic skin preparations or other skin treatment products.
Dermatix may stain clothing if not completely dry.
Dermatix should be applied to clean, dry skin only.
If redness, pain or irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult your physician.
