Silagen Scar Refinement System
A facial scar, even a small one, can make a person too self-conscious to want to participate in social events. Even scars that are not on the face can make people uneasy during the summer months when it’s time to put away the long pants and long-sleeves. The good news is that our medical/cosmetic professionals at Plastic Surgery Specialists now offer the Silagen Scar Refinement System to reduce the appearance of those inhibiting scars.
The Silagen Scar Refinement Product
The Silagen system has three products. First, there is the silicone gel with a sunscreen. This helps the scar to fade by shielding it from ultraviolet radiation. This makes it good for those areas of skin that get a lot of sun exposure, such as the face, neck, chest & arms. This first product contains medical grade silicone & zinc oxide.
The second product is pure, medical grade silicone gel, which comes in 15 and 30 gram size bottles. This product drys faster then other silicone gels and is preferred by 98% of physicians surveyed.
The third product is sheets of silicone gel in 12 shapes and sizes with either clear or beige backing. These sheets are washable and reusable for up to 4 weeks and are flexible & durable at 1 millimeter thickness.
The products can be used singly or they can be used together as recommended by our cosmeticians.
How Plastic Surgery Specialists Utilize the Silagen Scar Refinement System
PSS takes great care to address any minimal scaring that could take place due to a plastic surgery procedure. Which is why, following most cosmetic procedures, our board-certified doctors provide our patients a bottle of the 100% Pure Silicone Gel in their post-op package, along with instructions. Not all procedures require the use of the scar refinement system and our doctors provide the appropriate direction to our patients. Plastic Surgery Specialists also have additional gel & sheeting products available should patients require more treatment or if a patient consults the doctors with a preexisting scar that the doctor feels can be treated. Be sure to ask our doctors about the Silagen Scar Refinement System during your complimentary cosmetic consultation.
