Breakthrough treatment to reduce scarring

Scarring is a major consideration of cosmetic surgery patients. While the benefits of surgery and certain ablative non-surgical procedures can help rejuvenate the face and revitalise the complexion, the possibility of scarring post-procedure can sometimes detract from the final result.

Strataderm, from Swiss pharmaceutical company Stratpharma, is a breakthrough treatment in minimising the appearance of scars – both old and new. It is an advanced silicone gel formula that helps to minimise the appearance of normal scars and prevent abnormal scar formation.

How does Strataderm work?

Once applied, Strataderm self dries to form a very thin layer over the skin – similar to stretching a piece of a household cling film across the skin’s surface. The transparent, flexible and gas-permeable silicone gel sheet hydrates and protects the scar, while working its magic to minimise the scar’s appearance.

Strataderm can be used on both old and new scars and is ideal for any irregular skin/scar surfaces, for example the face or moving joints and flexures.

It helps soften and flatten raised scars, relieve itching and discomfort, reduce redness and discolouration and prevent abnormal and excessive scar formation.

Strataderm was developed for use on all types of scars including those resulting from general surgery, trauma, chronic wounds, burns, bites and acne.

How to use Strataderm

Strataderm should be applied once or twice daily to exposed areas, or as advised by the practitioner. For the best results, Strataderm should be maintained in continuous contact with the skin – literally 24/7. Once dry, it can be covered with sunscreen, cosmetics, pressure garments or casts.

Strataderm is recommended as a minimum treatment of 60 to 90 days, but larger and older scars may require a little more TLC to show significant improvement.
