Dermatix® is suitable for scars resulting from surgery, accidents, burns, and other injuries.
You do not have to wait for time to improve your scars. Dermatix® – available in a range of silicone based products is clinically proven to significantly improve the appearance of scars. Suitable for existing prominent immature and new scars, Dermatix® even reduces scarring following surgery, burns and other injuries. Dermatix® is available in two forms: as a Silicone Gel and as Silicone Sheets (both clear and fabric backed). Silicone is the most frequently used non-invasive treatment in scar management.
Dermatix® Silicone Sheets
Made from silicone and PTFE, the thin Dermatix® Silicone Sheet Clear provides a unique combination of transparency, flexibility and adhesiveness. The silicone reduces hypertrophic scars and keloids, while the transparency offers minimal visibility of the sheet. Dermatix® Silicone Sheet Clear does not require adhesive aids such as tape or netting, making Dermatix® Silicone Sheets ideal for wearing on exposed body parts (e.g. face and hands). Dermatix® Silicone Sheet Clear can be washed with mild soap and water, making Dermatix® Silicone Sheets easy to reuse.
Dermatix® Silicone Sheet Fabric is thin, self-adhesive and fabric backed. It is lined on one side with silicone, which sticks to the skin reducing and preventing scars. The other side is lined with silky-smooth fabric, which makes Dermatix® Silicone Sheet comfortable and convenient to use under clothing. Dermatix® Silicone Sheet Fabric can be washed with mild soap and water, making Dermatix® Silicone Sheet reusable and easy to care for.
