Silagen®: Your Ultimate Scar Treatment
If you’ve considered a plastic surgery procedure, you know that scarring is a part of the process. However, Silagen is a comprehensive, medical-grade line of silicone scar treatments that are designed to be an integral part of your recovery period. Dr. Trupiano now offers Silagen products to patients looking for excellent results without the scarring, and here’s what you should know about what Silagen Gel + SPF30 can do for you.
How Does Silicone Treat Scars?
Scars are the result of too much abnormal collagen production, whether after an injury or surgery. This occurs because the affected skin experiences trans-epidermal water loss, leading to an over-production in collagen. The silicone that is applied to the scar seals in moisture and prevents it from being lost, regulating the skin’s production of collagen and scar formation.
Although this method can require use over 2-3 months, it’s a highly effective way of managing to scar without additional expensive cosmetic treatments.
Why Choose Silagen Gel + SPF30?
As addressed above, silicone is one of the most effective ways to treat new scarring after a procedure. However, this silicone gel contains sun protection factor (zinc oxide), granting additional protection to the recovering skin. UV damage can be one of the biggest contributing factors to causing hyperpigmentation in scars, as well as drying out the skin, causing additional collagen production. Silagen Gel + SPF30 also provides superior feel over other silicone products, which are notoriously sticky or greasy, with the tendency to stain clothing. Silagen’s silicone gels are 100% medical-grade, non-comedogenic, odorless, and dry to a comfortable, matte finish.
What Is It Ideal For?
Along with reducing scarring, Silagen products are ideal for reducing bruising, swelling, pain, and promoting recovery. This makes it a must-have accompaniment for most cosmetic procedures, including:
- Fat transfer
- Dermal Filler & Botox injections
- Laser, Ultrasound, and RF treatments
