How Does Silicone Improve Dermal Hydration?

Biodermis pioneered the use of silicone gel sheeting for scar treatment, and has lead the industry with new innovations for over 25 years. Part of the scar healing process involves dermal hydration.

Silicone gel sheeting creates a semi-permeable layer over the skin that allows oxygen to penetrate while holding precious moisture in, creating the optimum oxygen and moisture balance for healthy skin. The illustration below details the effects of BIO-luminace on dermal hydration levels in a side by side comparison.
