• Skin scars are the normal and inevitable outcome of mammalian tissue repair.

  • After an injury or surgery your body overproduces Collagen to fill-in and repair the wound, it then produces Collagenase which starts to melt away the excess Collagen, if there is imbalance between synthesis and lysis, elevated or depressed scar are produced.

  • Every effort must be made to prevent the development of hypertrophic scars or keloids after surgery or trauma.

  • Silicone gel sheeting should be considered as first-line prophylaxis. Use of silicone gel sheeting should begin soon after surgical closure, when the incision has fully epithelialized.

  • Silicone gels are recommended as the

    Gold Standard

    First Line Non-invasive therapies for both the prevention and the treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids.

  • The effect of silicone gel in prevention of hypertrophic scar development in sternotomy wounds is promising.

  • There are no side effects and patients’ compliance is satisfactory.

  • Studies popularize the use of silicone gel in all types of surgery to minimize the formation of hypertrophic scars in the early postoperative period.

Use Kemagel®Silicone when scar is closed and/or sutures have been removed.
