Scars Shape Lives
If you, or someone you know, has a scar you’re probably too aware how distressing and disfiguring they can be, and just how seriously they can undermine self-confidence.
Any scar, regardless of size or location, can be perceived as a personal problem. Some may learn to accept their scar, but many never forget it. It is widely accepted by psychologists that proactively treating to reduce the visibility of a scar can actually help boost self-esteem.
Most people are unaware that there are treatments available to improve the appearance of scars, both old and new. New Dermatix, an innovative scar management gel, has been developed as a solution to today’s scar management needs. Now you can reduce the appearance of your scar and restore your confidence and self-esteem.
What is a scar?
Scar formation is a natural part of the healing process and occurs when the skin repairs wounds caused by accident, surgery or disease. The more the skin is damaged, the longer it takes to heal and the greater the chance of a noticeable scar. The way a scar forms is affected by age, location and certain genetic factors. Younger skin is more susceptible to over-development when healing, resulting in larger, thicker scars. Initially, a scar can appear red and thick, and then may gradually fade over time. Dermatix has been shown to soften, flatten and reduce discoloration. Dermatix can be used as soon as the wound has healed to decrease the visibility of a scar.
Scars are natural
To repair broken skin the body forms collagen fibres resulting in a noticeable scar that normally fades over the following two years. Scars may take up to eighteen month to flatten and fade after injury, but problem scars may have the following effects:
- Grow bigger
- Remain red/dark and raised without fading
- Cause discomfort, itching or pain
- Restrict the movement of a joint
- Cause distress because of appearance
Types of scars
After a wound has healed various types of scars can form. Dermatix has been especially formulated to help manage these scars, remodelling them to a more natural looking state.
- Hypertrophic Scars
These scars are more common in the young, following burns and in people with darker skin. These scars are normally red, thick and elevated and can be itchy or painful, but their growth is confined within the boundaries of the original wound. Hypertrophic scars usually start to develop within weeks after the injury and may improve naturally, although this process can take up to a year or more.
- Keloid Scars
Keloids may occur at any age, but tend to develop more readily in younger individuals and in darker skinned people. These are thick, rounded, irregular clusters of scar tissue that extend beyond the original wound. They often appear red or darker in colour compared with the surrounding skin. Keloids may not develop for many months after injury and may also worsen during pregnancy.
- Atrophic Scars
These scars are generally small, round depressions that lie below the surface of the surrounding skin. They are formed when the healing process is disrupted and insufficient new connective fibres are formed following acne or chickenpox.
Silicone gel – the choice of plastic surgeons worldwide.
Clinical treatment options for both hypertrophic and keloid scars include surgery and scar-injected steroids, both if which can be very painful. The number of options available for consumers to purchase over the counter can at first appear confusing. However, it is important to know that very few products have actually been clinical proven to make a difference to your scar – silicone gel dramatically improves scars – recommended by leading specialists worldwide. Dermatix is a silicone gel!
A recent publication by the International Advisory Panel on Scar Management, a group of skin specialists, recommended the use of silicone gel for the treatment of a wide variety of scars. Dermatix can be used after surgery.
The first choice in Scar Management!
Dermatix is a topical silicone gel with unique advantages over other silicone formulations. It is effective for the management and prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars. Dermatix has also been successfully used to manage scars resulting from trauma, burns and surgery. Dermatix has been shown to soften, flatten and smooth scars, and reducing the discoloration, pain and itchiness associated with them.

If Dermatix has not dried within 4-5 minutes, you have used too much: remove the excess and allow the drying process to continue.
The recommended minimum duration of treatment is two months. Continue to use Dermatix for as long as benefits are experienced.
Dermatix should not be applied to open or fresh wounds, placed in contact with mucous membranes or too close to the eyes. Dermatix should not be applied over antibiotic skin preparations or other skin treatments or products. Dermatix may stain clothing if not completely dry.

Frequently Asked Questions
For which types of scars is Dermatix suitable?
Dermatix visibly improves old and new scars on the face and body, including hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Can I use Dermatix to help avoid scars?
If the skin has been ruptured you cannot avoid a scar, but you can make it less visible. You must only start Dermatix when the wound has healed.
Can Dermatix completely remove a scar?
It is not possible to make the scar ‘invisible’. Dermatix will, however, markedly improve the appearance of scars old and new.
How long should I use Dermatix for?
Studies have shown that silicone works most effectively if it is in constant contact with the scar – so be sure to use the gel morning and night as part of your daily routine for a minimum of two months. Further benefits may result from extended use.
Is Dermatix skin-friendly?
The silicone gel formulation is kind to the skin and is suitable for use on sensitive skin. Silicone skin products have been used safely for several decades in professional scar care. Dermatix is also indicated for use in children.
Are there any precautions?
Dermatix is for external use only and should not be applied to open or fresh wounds, placed in contact with mucous membranes or too close to the eyes. Dermatix should not be applied over antibiotic skin preparations or other skin treatments or products.
How else can I take care of my scar?
Scars, especially fresh ones, should not be exposed to extremes of temperature (intense sunshine, sun beds, saunas and extreme cold). Tight clothing should also be avoided, in case it irritates or injures the scar tissue. Care should be taken during stretching and strengthening exercises because the skin, which has already been damaged, is extremely sensitive.
Dermatix is available without a prescription.
