Silagen®

Made with medical grade silicone, Silagen topical gel helps with scar healing by softening, flattening, and reducing redness and itchiness in scars. It is non-irritating, and when utilized with SPF, which is essential especially during the healing process, Silagen helps to prevent UV-induced scar hyperpigmentation.

embrace®

Among the scar products that are available today, embrace® has been rigorously tested and shown to be effective. This FDA-cleared adhesive silicone sheet that removes tension from the incision. During healing, tension is what causes scars to form. embrace is the first product to remove that tension so that scar formation is minimized.

The embrace dressing is used beginning two weeks after your plastic or reconstructive surgery and will be replaced every week for a minimum of eight weeks. The application will be taught to you so that you can continue to change it weekly on your own.
