What is Silagen Scar Repair?
Our recommended product to combat scarring is Silagen Scar Repair. The first and only comprehensive, physician exclusive line of medical grade silicone scar therapies, the Silicone Gel + SPF 30 includes medical grade silicone plus zinc oxide sunscreen with no chemical sunscreens added. It helps to prevent UV-induced scar hyperpigmentation and it is non-comedogenic and non-irritating, so it is ideal for exposed areas such as your face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
What are the Benefits of Silagen Scar Repair?
Made from 100% Pure Silicone Gel, it includes medical grade silicone, and it’s much faster drying than any other silicone gels, and in addition, it has a soft silky feel preferred by 98% of physicians and patients surveyed. Silagen Scar Repair will help protect and smooth out the new scar, and the included SPF will help protect your incision from the darkening effects of the sun. With no extra potentially irritating ingredients, Silagen Scar Repair is available in two sizes: 15g and 30g.
Who is a Candidate for Silagen Scar Repair?
If you have scarring issues from surgery or an accident, you may be a candidate for Silagen Scar Repair. Silagen Scar Repair forms a breathable, flexible silicone “shield” over your scar that prevents water loss in the tissues that provides the optimal protective environment and speeds up the healing process. In a recent clinical study, after 7 weeks of treatment with the gel, 87% strongly desired scar prevention strategies, and 75% would go to any length to minimize scarring, even if they resulted in only small improvements in the appearance of their scars. You can begin using Silagen Scar Repair after the sutures are removed, and your wound is closed. Silagen Scar Repair is physician-office dispensed, so we carry this in our office as a convenience to you.
How Much Does Silagen Scar Repair Cost?
All of the premium, physician-grade skin care products available at Davis Facial Plastic Surgery are exclusively designed to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Our products are available to patients seeking quality skin care, and they are frequently recommended to assist with healing after undergoing other treatments. The cost of products varies for each patient, depending on your skin type and size of scar. Patients are responsible for the cost of these products, as medical insurance providers consider the treatments to be elective. You can pay by major credit card, personal check, or cash.
