THE SOLUTION TO FADE SCARS PROGRESSIVELY
SCAR GEL AND SILICONE SHEET
ScarFixTM/MC is sold under the name ScarReduxTM/MC in the United States, Mexico and South America. Clients from these regions will receive ScarReduxTM/MC
ScarFixTM/MC scar treatment is a system of derma-repair treatment for wound scars, surgery scars (breast surgery and other), c section scars, burn scars, acne scars, etc. ScarFixTM/MC prevents hypertrophy and keloids. ScarFixTM/MC gel can also be used in skin repair treatment for roseola.
ScarFixTM/MC scars treatment is a unique system for women and men.
ScarFixTM/MC is a unique scar treatment system composed of 2 products, scar gel and silicone sheet that are made to work in complementarity.
THE TWO ELEMENTS OF THE SCARFIXTM/MC SYSTEM
|SCAR GEL — The application of ScarFixTM/MC gel smooths, softens lessens scar tissue and help to diminish redness. Derma-repair treatment improves the appearance of scars, reviving the tone and vitality of epidermis. ScarFixTM/MC gel benefits from the synergy effect associated with the combined biotechnology to botanical extract and trace elements. The ScarFixTM/MC gel is also efficient for roseola.
SILICONE SHEET — These sheets are utilized in hospitals because of their mild, flexible and occlusive nature, the silicone sheet is made of medical grade polyurethane of one (1) mm thick.
Use ScarFixTM/MC System to reduce scars progressively
METHOD OF USE
|SCAR GEL — Wash the skin well with soap and water, dry thoroughly. Apply a small dab of gel (rub lightly) to completely cover the scar and about one (1) cm surrounding it. Recommended: Two to three applications per day. The scar should be covered with gel 24 hours a day. Never apply to an open or weeping wound.
SILICONE SHEET — After applying the gel, cover the scar entirely with the silicone sheet. The silicone sheet should be worn every day for a maximum of twelve (12) hours, preferably over night. Never apply to an open or weeping wound
The ScarFixTM/MC system can help prevent the formation of scars on newly healed wounds.
NOTE : THE SCARFIX GEL IS VERY EFFICIENT WHEN USED ALONE. HOWEVER, THE REGENERATION OF CICATRICIAL TISSUE IS MORE EFFICIENT WHEN THE GEL AND THE SILICONE SHEET ARE USED IN SYSTEM (TOGETHER).
MAINTENANCE – TO BE READ CAREFULLY
SCARFIXTM/MC SILICONE SHEETING
Follow these simple instructions when using ScarFixTM/MC silicone sheeting.
FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS, SCARFIXTM/MC SYSTEM MUST BE USED DAILY.
DURATION OF TREATMENT
Improvement may be seen in 2-8 weeks. Individual results may vary. All scars can be treated no matter how old they are, thus the older the scar (20 or 30 years) the longer the treatment.
The duration of the treatment varies from one person to another. The age of the scar and skin type are some of the factors that influence the duration of the treatment. The ScarFixTM/MC system is a scar treatment that could last from 2 — 12 months. It is important to apply the treatment every day. With normal usage, one ScarFix system kit should be sufficient for the full duration of the treatment. You need to buy many times the competitors product to have the same end result you would get with the purchase of only 1 ScarFixTM/MC system.
ScarFixTM/MC vs. the Competition
THE ADVANTAGES OF SCARFIXTM/MC SYSTEM
- One use silicone sheet (3 to 30 days).
- Not all silicone sheeting is medical grade.
- Silicone sheet a great deal thinner. Occlusion principle deficient. Results much less spectacular. Length of treatment increased.
- Silicone sheet in one size only.
- Repeated purchases result in higher costs to consumer.
- No dermo-repair gel to optimize the effectiveness of silicone sheet.
For all those reasons and more, it's recommended to use ScarFixTM/MC System for scars. This system is used in many hospitals and is highly recommended by health specialists. See the appreciation letter (pdf).
Are there other techniques to eliminate scars?
- Laser treatment is effective and requires a similar time span as does ScarFixTM/MC . However, laser treatment is much more expensive, with the average cost in excess of 1,000$ (100$ to 150$ per visit).
- Scars can also be treated with steroid injections, but this procedure is long and very painful.
- Use of micro dermabrasion smoothes out the surface of scars, but fails to eliminate scar tissue . This method requires several sessions and costs can be high - in excess of 1,000$ (100$ to 150$ per visit).
- AHA , glycolic acid and vitamin A, used in exfoliation treatments, are more or less aggressive (this is especially true of glycolic acid and vitamin A). When performed by a medical doctor, these treatments can lead to good results. However, procedures can be long and uncomfortable, due to a burning sensation, and result in an unaesthetic appearance.

Prevention of hypertrophic scars and keloids by the prophylactic use of topical silicone gel sheets following a surgical procedure in an office setting.

BACKGROUND: Topical silicone gel sheeting has been used for more than 20 years to help reduce the size of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Its clinical efficacy and safety is well established. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether topical silicone gel sheeting can be used to prevent hypertrophic scars and keloids from forming following dermatologic skin surgery. METHODS: Patients undergoing skin surgery were stratified into two groups: those with no history of abnormal scarring (low-risk group) and those with a history of abnormal scarring (high-risk group). Following the procedure, patients within each group were randomized to receive either routine postoperative care or topical silicone gel sheeting (48 hours after surgery). Patients were followed for 6 months. RESULTS: In the low-risk group, there were no statistical differences between individuals using routine postoperative care or using topical silicone gel sheets. In the high-risk group, there was a statistical difference (39% versus 71%) between patients who did not develop abnormal scars and used topical silicone gel sheeting and patients who developed abnormal scars after routine postoperative treatment. Those individuals having a scar revision procedure also showed a statistical difference if topical silicone gel sheeting was used following surgery. CONCLUSION: Topical silicone gel sheeting, with a 20-year history of satisfaction in dermatology, now appears to be useful in the prevention of hypertrophic scars and keloids in patients undergoing scar revision.

We studied the effects of a silicone gel bandage that was worn for at least 12 hours daily on the resolution of hypertrophic burn scar. In a second cohort, the prevention of hypertrophic scar formation in fresh surgical incisions by this bandage was also evaluated. In 19 patients with hypertrophic burn scars, elasticity of the scars was quantified serially with the use of an elastometer. An adjacent or mirror-image hypertrophic burn scar served as a control. Scar elasticity was increased after both 1 and 2 months compared with that in controls. There was corresponding improvement clinically that persisted for at least 6 months. In the other cohort, scar volume changes in 21 surgical incisions were measured before and after 1 and 2 months. Gel-treated incisions gained less volume than control incisions after both intervals. Clinical assessment corroborated this quantitative demonstration of a decrement in scar volume. We concluded that topical silicone gel is efficacious, both in the prevention and in the treatment of hypertrophic scar.
