Xeragel is a 100% silicone gel scar treatment, designed for convenient, regular application over small scars. Perfect for discreet application on scar treatment sites where silicone sheets would be inconvenient, impractical, or unsightly. Xeragel is a spreadable silicone ointment that is completely transparent.
Please note that the gel does not dry off, but stays on like a film. If you use Xeragel on scars that will be touched by clothing, you will find that the gel might rub off and you will lose the intended effect. It is recommended you use Xeragel on scars that will not be covered by clothing eg; hands and arms, face, neck, elbows, feet & ankles.
How Does Silicone Work? Scars need an ideal healing environment, meaning the appropriate balance of moisture and maximum exposure to oxygen. Silicone fully encapsulates the scar site, meaning that it completely covers the treatment site for even distribution of necessary moisture (hydration), and maximum exposure to oxygen. Although the entire site is covered, silicone is semipermeable, allowing oxygen to enter while keeping excess moisture out. Properly hydrated and oxygenated skin allows surrounding healthy tissue to better blend with scar tissue, resulting in a scar that is more natural in colour, softer, and flatter overall. Use as directed can dramatically reduce the appearance of scars. Silicone scar treatment in all forms (sheets, ointments, sticks) normalise collagen synthesis and breakdown, resulting in a softer and flatter scar. Silicone is completely non-toxic, safe and easy to use, even on sensitive skin and on children. Silicone is the best option for treating old and new scars.
