Dr. Darst is pleased to be now able to offer his Charlotte area patients the convenience of the first and only comprehensive, physician-exclusive, all-day medical grade silicone scar management therapy regimen, helping them manage scars throughout the day whether they’re indoors or outdoors. During the healing process of scars, they synthesize and release collagen — an important component of the healing process. Unfortunately, excessive collagen can actually develop into abnormal scarring. Sun exposure can also make scars grow darker. This process is known as hyperpigmentation. The good news is that medical grade silicone has been found to normalize collagen and foster skin hydration, which helps prevent hypertrophic scars. A combination of silicone with zinc oxide also aids in the prevention of sun exposure-related hyperpigmentation of scars. Silicone differs from sticky creams in that it creates a thin, transparent sheet that quickly dries and affixes to scar tissue, as well as being effective around joints and contours. Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel Medical grade silicone Faster drying than any other silicone gel Soft, silky feel preferred by 98% of physicians surveyed No extra potentially irritating ingredients Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel is the preferred treatment choice for post-operative care and healing. This odor-free product is ideal for both face and body, drying quickly. The gel helps normalize collagen levels in the skin and helps guard against hypertrophic scarring and keloids after wound closure. Treatment with silicone has become the gold standard of care in managing scars, and Dr. Darst is proud to provide this innovative treatment for his patients. Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel can only be obtained from a physician. In the early stages of healing, scars often release a large amount of water through evaporation, leading to the overproduction of collagen, which then causes scars to develop and worsen. The collagen in your scar tissue will be normalized during the months of treatment with Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel, preventing abnormal scars from forming. Since the gel affixes very effectively to your skin and feels dry, patients find it much more acceptable to use than sticky creams because it is not only convenient and easy to use but because of its tendency to adhere better to joints and contours than other forms of treatment. Silagen 100% Pure Silicone Gel is available in 15g amount at Darst Dermatology. It feels soft and silky, but also dries more quickly than other silicone gels that are available. The gel offers the amount of hydration and occlusion needed to stop scar tissue from becoming abnormal or excessive, which is why its properties make it the preferred treatment choice for 98 percent of physicians surveyed.
