Premium grade silicone fades scars by promoting moisture and letting oxygen sink deep into the skin. Together they simultaneously allow moisture and oxygen to flow to the scar site, leaving the scar that was once being bombarded with excess amounts of collagen to finally relax. Yes, our skin needs collagen at the early stages of the healing process to help close the wound. However, after the wound is closed our bodies continue to produce extra collagen to that scar site leaving the skin with a larger or lifted scar. Scars require oxygen and moisture which send the proper signals to the body to discourage the scarring process. Premium grade silicone also fights to lessen the hyperpigmentation that the scar has by reducing its redness. It does so with the help of the oxygenating properties premium grade silicone contains. This constant flow of oxygen that your scar is getting via silicone sheeting, or silicone stick is lessening the redness and lowering the height of your scar.
Properly hydrated and oxygenated skin allows surrounding healthy tissue to better blend with scar tissue, resulting in a scar that is more natural in color, softer, and flatter overall. Use as directed can dramatically reduce the appearance of scars. Silicone scar treatment in all forms (sheets, ointments, sticks) normalizes collagen synthesis, and reduces irritation and redness. The end result is a smoother, flatter scar and skin with a more natural color. Silicone is completely non-toxic, safe and easy to use, even on sensitive skin and on children. Silicone is the best option for treating old and new scars. New, breakthrough scar treatments and scar improvement products are always on the horizon. Through continued investigation into the causes and origins of scarring, Biodermis continues its investment into, and development of an innovative, and expansive array of silicone treatment products for scars.
