How Dermatix® Works

Silicone – established efficacy in scar management

Silicone Gel Sheeting has been used successfully for more than 20 years in scar management. [1] Dermatologists and plastic surgeons have used Silicone Gel sheeting as an effective treatment for scars for many years. [2]

Unlike other scar treatments, Dermatix® products can be applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints and flexures. This gives you a choice of treatment options.

Multiple proposed modes of action

The mechanism of action of silicone based products in scar management has not been completely determined. A growing body of evidence suggests that the beneficial effects of silicone on scars are mediated by occlusion (covering) and hydration of the scar.
