Dermatix - product shot

Dermatix® is a topical silicone gel for the discreet and effective treatment of scars.1

Let’s face it, scarring can be unsightly and embarrassing for some people – especially when located on exposed areas of the body like the face, neck, lower arms and legs, where clothing may not be able to hide the scar.1 Some people are predisposed to an abnormal wound response and an abnormal scarring may result.2 Often, the scar is raised, itchy and tender or painful.3

The types of scars can vary from those caused by Acne4, Burns3, and those that are called Keloid or Hypertrophic.2, 5

Types of scars

Acne Scarring

Hypertrophic Scarring

Keloid Scarring

Burn Scarring

Acne Scarring

These scars appear as small indentations in the skin. They occur when the skin does not heal properly in response to inflammation of the skin cells.6 In 80-90% of people, the scars are in response to a destruction of the collagen in the skin and are known as “atrophic scars”.6 In the remaining percentage of people there may be too much collagen build up and the scars may be hypertrophic or keloid.6

There are a number of risk factors that have been linked to the development of atrophic acne scars, including delay in effective treatment of acne, severe acne (although scars can occur even with mild acne), family history of scarring and how long and severe the person has inflammation.4

Keloid Scarring

These scars are similar to hypertrophic scars but extend beyond the boundaries of the wound area and rarely become smaller.5

They are usually darker than the surrounding skin, as they usually grow in the areas of the skin where melanin-producing skin cells are found.5 The most common sites for keloid scars are the shoulder areas, the front of the chest, the upper back and the earlobes.5 Keloid scars may also cause symptoms, such as itchiness or pain.5

Hypertrophic Scarring

These scars occur when the skin deposits too many collagen and glycoprotein fibres after an injury, trauma, burn or infection. The scar remains at the site of the wound and does not grow over the wound margin.5

Burn Scarring

First-degree burns damage the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) and cause redness and pain. They usually heal within 5 to 10 days without scarring the skin.7

Second-degree burns (superficial) affect both the epidermis and the layer under the skin (the dermis). As well as pain and redness, people with second-degree burns may experience blisters. These burns may take 3 weeks to heal with minimal scarring.7
