KELO-COTE® is a silicone gel for the management and prevention of hypertrophic & keloid scars. By supporting the normalisation of collagen production, it helps to relieve the itching, discomfort and redness associated with scars, as well as helping to flatten and soften raised scars.
Once applied, KELO-COTE® forms an invisible and odourless layer over the skin and can be used underneath make-up or sun cream.
Scars form when the dermis is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. The new scar tissue will have a different texture and quality than the surrounding tissue. Scars form after a wound is completely healed. A hypertrophic scar is raised and reddish in color. Hypertrophic scars are more common. They don’t get a big as keloids, and may fade with time. Keloids are raised, reddish nodules that develop at the site of an injury, and project above the surface of the skin and form large mounds of scar tissue. Keloids may form on any part of the body, although the upper chest, shoulders and upper back are especially prone to keloid formation. Symptoms include pigmentation of the skin, itchiness, redness, unusual sensations and pain.
KELO-COTE® has been designed to treat scars resulting from trauma, surgery and burns.
