Scars are natural
Scars are formed as part of the natural wound healing process and are followed by wound closure as a result of accidents, surgery, or illness. Wound healing time depends on the level of damage and the depth of the wound. The longer the time required for the healing process, the greater the possibility of abnormal scars and disturbing physically and aesthetically. Scar is the final stage of the wound healing process and all wounds will form scars, but not all wounds end up being abnormal scars. Normal scars will develop in the first 48 hours after wound closure and can disappear within 3 months, but abnormal scars can appear up to 18 months later. Scars formed due to surgical incisions can be abnormal scars and are not related to the surgeon’s expertise. There are several types of scars that can form when the normal wound healing process is disrupted.
Here are some types of scars:
The scars are generally red, thick, prominent, and often itchy and painful. Growth is limited to the site of injury.
Scars that are thick, circular, irregular, and growing beyond the boundaries of the wound. Keloid scars often appear red or darker in color compared to the surrounding skin.
Scars are generally more sunken than the surrounding skin. Atrophic scars form due to acne or chickenpox when the wound healing process is disrupted and there is not enough new fiber tissue formed.
Kelo-cote is recommended by plastic surgeon
At this time, silicone is the main choice of plastic surgeons around the world. For more than 20 years, there has been abundant evidence showing the effectiveness of silicone for the treatment and prevention of abnormal scar formation. Therefore, silicone has become the gold standard (Golden standard) for doctors. According to the 2002 International Clinical Recommendation on Scar Management, silicone should be the first-line therapy for the initial treatment of all types of scars, especially to prevent keloids and hypertrophic scars.
Kelo-cote patented self drying formulation and siliclear complex
Kelo-Cote is the only silicone gel that has a patented self-drying formula and a siliclear complex that has been clinically proven to be effective in more than 2000 patients. After drying, Kelo-Cote will form a semi-occlusive layer and become a second layer for the skin. This layer is able to normalize the production of collagen and collagenase so that Kelo-Cote can prevent and treat prominent scars (hypertrophic scars and keloids). Kelo-Cote has many advantages over silicone sheets which have to be attached to the scar. Kelo-Cote is the only product that can bind to the surface of the skin and provide protection and treatment for 24 hours. Silicone sheets can cause maceration, infection, irritation and are difficult to stabilize on the skin. Scientifically it is also never know how much pressure is required for the effective treatment of silicone sheets. Kelo-Cote is safe, well-tolerated, and suitable for use on all skin types, including children and patients with sensitive skin.
