Preventative Treatment for Scars
Scar prevention treatment in Winchester using Kelo-Cote actively works on the scar tissue, mimicking normal skin and forming a barrier which allows skin to heal without forming scar erythmia. A scar is growth of collagen beneath the skin that is formed as the result of wound healing; therefore, every cut or injury to the skin heals to form a scar. Proper wound healing will result in an invisible scar. However this doesn’t always happen. Scars come in all shapes and sizes depending on the wound, your age, scar location and size, nutrition, genetics or infection. A scar usually takes 12 to 18 months to fully mature. Preventing scars is easier than trying to treat them once they have formed
Silicone Gel such as Kelo-Cote is clinically proven in the management of a wide variety of abnormal scars.” Silicone is the only non-invasive option for which evidence-based recommendations have been made for both scar treatment and prevention
Silicone is recommended as first line therapy in the treatment of:
- Linear hypertrophic scars
- Widespread burn hypertrophic scar
- Silicone gel such as Kelo Cote can be used as mono-therapy or in combination with other therapies such as derma roller, derma stamp and platelet rich plasma therapy.
Abnormal Scar Prevention Treatment
For abnormal scar prevention, silicone should be considered as first-line prophylaxis, beginning shortly after the skin trauma, burn, cut, surgery etc. Treatment should begin immediately after initial healing, once there is no open wound.
Scar Prevention Treatments and Products in Winchester
To prevent scarring the wound needs to heal well. If your wound is not closed, ie still has a scab then to giv it the best chance of going through the healing process without scarring it needs to go through the healing stages without any disruption to the process. Some wounds heal very slowly, eg diabetic ulcers and therefore there is a high risk of scarring. We stock clinically proven wound healing products which optimise wound healing conditions. Youki contains essential amino acids and growth factors for enhanced skin repair. Read more about Youki advanced wound healing here>>
For wounds that have closed and formed a scar, the aim is to get the fibrous scar tissue to heal so it is slowly replaced with normal tissue. If conditions are not correct then a visible raised or pitted scar may remain.
