Kelo-Cote Scar Treatment Gel 15g
Kelo-Cote is an advanced, clinically proven silicone gel to help prevent and treat old and new scars resulting from general surgical procedures.
Kelo-Cote is an advanced, clinically proven silicone gel to help prevent and treat old and new hypertrophic and keloid scars resulting from general surgical procedures, c-section, trauma, wounds and burns. It helps to smooth, soften and flatten scars, reduce redness and discolouration and relieve the itching, pain and discomfort associated with scars. Kelo-Cote self-dries to form an invisible, breathable and waterproof flexible layer within minutes, providing 24-hour protection with just 2 applications a day.
Kelo-cote forms a bond with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells) forming a protective barrier against chemical, physical and microbial invasion of the scar site while assisting with hydration. This creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normalised collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.
Suitable for use on children from 3 months and people with sensitive skin. Suitable for use under make up and for sensitive skin.
- Apply twice daily. For maximum effect, Kelo-cote gel should have 24 hour contact with the skin.
- Ensure that the affected area is clean and dry.
- Apply Kelo-cote to the area as a very thin layer, do not rub in, but allow to dry.
- Remove any excess product if it does not dry completely.
- Once dry, sunblock and cosmetics can be applied.
Recommended minimum treatment is 60-90 days, older scars may take longer; continue to use if improvement is still seen after the initial 90 days.
