How to reduce the appearance of Scars

silicone Scar appearance reduction

There are a myriad of products on the market offering all sorts of solutions to make your scars disappear.

It can be confusing, costly and disappointing when you invest so much time on a product that has little to no effect.

Scars will never disappear completely, but the good news is, we have spent years developing a product that has been stringently tested, that will make them almost invisible……

How are scars formed and what treatments work?

Everybody scars differently depending on the nature of the wound. Most of us will have a raised red line, but some will develop Keloid or Hypertrophic scars which can impact your self confidence.

From deep down in the skin our bodies start to produce extra collagen fibres to repair the wound.

This causes a build-up of collagen around the healed wound often resulting in raised red surface.

Whilst it is important to keep the skin well hydrated before the procedure, moisturising the area around the wound after surgery will not change the way your scar looks.

Products like Bio Oil and Vitamin E Cream are often advertised as scar treatments, however there have been many clinical studies proving that the only product that will change the look of your scar is Silicone.

Silicone Scar Treatment reduces scarring and is recommended in the first line therapy. 

The US National Library of Medicine studied the efficacy of Silicone for the treatment of Hypertrophic scars and Keloids and found scar appearance was significantly improved month by month using Silicone therapy.

BodySil; What is it and how does it help reduce scar appearance?

Ideal scar management results in a minimising of the height, thickness and/or discoloration of the scar, thus helping flatten, smooth and blend the scar with the surrounding skin, making it far less noticeable.

Clinical tests have shown that Silicone is the best possible product to use to change the appearance of a scar.

It helps keep the scar flat and reduces the redness.

This is why we developed BodySil; our 100% silicone, reusable and waterproof scar management tape.

BodySil silicone tape creates a semi-permeable layer over the skin which protects the scar from the environment.

Studies also report that silicone produces a 86% reduction in texture, 84% reductions in color and 68% reduction in height of scars.

It also helps keep the scar hydrated and increases its exposure to oxygen which aids in healing.
