  • DermaScar® works best on scars that are raised above the normal level of skin (hypertrophic and keloid scars) that are not older than two years.1
  • DermaScar® can be used on healed scars after surgery, and stretch marks.9
  • DermaScar® can be applied on the face and any part of the body, but be careful to avoid accidentally getting the gel in your eyes.2
  • DermaScar® is not indicated for certain types of acne scars. Please consult your health care professional.
  • Unfortunately even with plastic surgery it is not possible to make a scar completely invisible.8
  • However, DermaScar® visibly improves the appearance of scars – scars become lighter, flatter and softer.1
  • For best results treatment with DermaScar® should start early, once the wound is closed and healed,2,5 and may need to be continued for several months.2
  • A 15gram tube contains enough silicone gel to treat 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) scar twice a day for over 90 days.
  • A scar is usually red or darker in colour than normal skin; it is thick, dry, raised up higher than the surrounding skin and can be itchy and painful.10
  • Regular use of DermaScar® will result in your scar becoming lighter, softer and flatter over time.DermaScar® may also reduce any itchiness or pain.1
  • It can take 1 to 2 months of treatment before you start to notice improvements in the appearance of a scar.1,4
  • Clinical studies indicate that DermaScar® works most effectively when it is in constant contact with the scar.10
  • As DermaScar® works continuously over 12 hours, it is important to regularly apply DermaScar® twice a day.11 You should make applying DermaScar® a part of your daily routine applying it each morning and night. This should be done for at least 2 months to obtain the best possible result.
  • Further improvements in the appearance of the scar may occur with longer usage.2
  • Once DermaScar® has been applied and left to dry, other products such as sunscreen and makeup can be used over the top.14
  • Scars, especially fresh ones, should not be exposed to extreme temperature. Avoid intense sunshine, sunbeds, saunas and extremely cold conditions.
  • Tight clothing should also be avoided as it can irritate or injure scar tissue.
  • Care should be taken during stretching and strengthening exercises because previously damaged skin is extremely sensitive.15 Remember it can take over a year for a scar to fully form.16
  • We do not have clinical evidence regarding the use of DermaScar® in pregnancy. DermaScar® can be used on young children.12
  • DermaScar® is for external use only and should not be applied to open, wet or weeping wounds.
  • DermaScar® should not be placed in contact with mucous membranes (e.g. inside your nostrils or mouth) and you should avoid contact with your eyes.
