Scar Fx works well on both new and old scars regardless of the age of the scar, and can be used on all types of post-surgery scars, hypertrophic and keloid scars, and other scar types caused by injury, trauma, and burns.
Silicone sheets may be used to help in the prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scarring when used on closed scars following surgery, trauma, or burns.
The main benefit of silicone sheeting compared to scar healing gels and ointments is that silicone sheets put direct pressure on the scar that is beneficial to minimizing scar appearance, whereas a scar ointment or gel does not put pressure on the scar.
The main types of scars are normal postoperative, contractures, keloid, hypertrophic, and atrophic.
- Postoperative Scars are the normal process of scarring after an operation. For about six weeks after surgery the scar becomes red, firm, and hard. Without proper care this scar could mature to become thickened and most likely get worse. We highly recommend you start caring for the scar at this stage to see the best results.
- Hypertrophic scars are raised and red in that are similar to keloids with much less height, under 4mm. Treatment of hypertrophic scars include steroid injections or silicone gel and/or sheeting, which flatten the scar.
- Keloid scars are significantly raised on the skin, over 4mm in height and are most common among people with dark skin. Treatments include steroid injections, surgery to remove the scar, or silicone gel/sheeting.
- Contracture scars tighten skin, which can impair your ability to move. They may also go deeper, affecting muscles and nerves. If your skin has been burned, you may have one of these scars. Treatment for contracture scars consists of laser treatments or lining compression garments with silicone.
- Atrophic scars are indentation scars, the most common of these are acne scars. Treatments depend on the type of acne scar you have whether it is a deep pit or wavelike in appearance. Some options would be chemical peels, fillers, or skin needling. Our RejuvaSil silicone gel makes a wonderful treatment for acne scars as it is non-comedogenic and can be put onto the face.
