Scar Management
Scar Management

Scars are the physiological healing result of any trauma to the skin where the dermis (deep layer) of the skin has been injured. During the healing process special healing cells called Fibroblasts migrate to the site of injury.

These Fibroblasts cover the damaged area and form collagen which is the building block of scar tissue. Normally, collagen fibers line up in a parallel fashion like spaghetti in a package, forming a bridge across the wound. This collagen material is constantly remodeling for almost two years. Sometime in the first two years, this bridge of collagen tissue will gradually contract and pull the edges of the wound tightly together. This process results in a scar that is flat and very thin. The scar then becomes dormant.

An abnormal scar occurs when too much scar tissue is produced, or the collagen fibers lay down in disarray much like cooked spaghetti. These hypertrophic (and keloid) scars are reddish and raised. They can itch and cause pain in the worst cases.

Scar Management is an FDA registered product consisting of a unique blend of medical grade silicones. Biologically inert, it is extremely safe to use (usage instructions). It is applied topically to the scar after the skin has closed and is actively healing. Reduction in the size and intensity of the scar is typically observed within 2 weeks.

Medical silicone products have been used for years for scar treatment. They are a very successful and well documented therapy in the treatment of scars. Until recently these products were very difficult to use. Scar Management gel is an alternative that offers ease of use in a safe effective format. The proposed theoretical mechanism that has evolved in clinical and laboratory studies suggest that Scar Management works by causing a favorable shift in the production of growth factors (TGF, FGF) involved in dermal regeneration. This shift reduces the over secretion of collagen. Scar Management theoretically regulates the growth factors leading to a reduction in the size and intensity of excessive scars.

Scar Management should be used for 12-16 weeks or until changes in the size and intensity of the scar is no longer observed. It should be applied twice a day, morning and evening. Reapplication may be necessary if the area is washed. (go to Directions tab @ SCAR MANAGEMENT or follow your physicians protocol)

This depends on the size or length or your scar.  Typically, a 15g bottle will last 2-3 months based on a scar that is at most 2 inches in length.  See table below.

Scars actively heal for about two years. During the healing process Fibroblasts cover the damaged area and form collagen which is the building block of scar tissue. Theoretically, Scar Management is only effective during this two- year active period, however we have had customers claim success on older scars.

Absolutely! Scar Management is easily tolerated by children and can be worn 24 hours a day. It washes off with soap and water and can be reapplied as soon as the skin is dry.

Scar Management is safe for use on the face but should not be put in contact with the eyes or mucous membranes.

Wash the affected area and pat dry. Gently massage a small amount, roughly the size of a pea, into the scar and gently wipe away the excess with a tissue until the area is completely dry and no longer tacky.  Apply twice daily in the morning and evening.  May be covered with cosmetic blush or camouflage.

Simple, our product is backed by science.  This formulation has been helping people treat their scars for well over a decade and patients love it.

Size of Scar

Usage

15g lasts  

30g lasts

60g lasts

2″ or smaller

 Apply pea size twice daily

 2-3 months

4-6 months

6-8 months

2″ to 4″

 Apply pea size twice daily

1-1 1/2 months

2-3 months

4-6 months

4″ or larger

 Apply pea size twice daily

1/2 month

1-2 months

2-3 months

The basic rule of thumb is as follows: If your scar is 3” long or less you should order the ½ oz. (15g) bottle, if your scar is between 3 and 6” in length you should order two 15g bottles and finally, if your scar is over 6” in length, you should consider purchasing three 15g bottles, of course at a discounted rate.

Scar Management should be used for 12-16 weeks or until changes in the size and intensity of the scar are no longer observed. It should be applied twice daily, morning and evening. Reapplication may be necessary if the area is washed.

No, you can use Scar Management as long as you wish, however there is no benefit in using it once you are no longer seeing improvement.

Your scars shouldn’t come back. We recommend you treat your scar until you are no longer seeing improvement and then stop. Your scar won’t get worse.

Tough call but if both are used as directed they are probably about equal in terms of effectiveness. The sheeting is difficult to keep on the skin on certain areas of the body such as elbows, skin folds or facial features. The gel can be used conveniently just about anywhere on the body. In our experience, most people prefer Silicone Gel for its ease of use.
