What is Kelo-cote® made of?
Kelo-cote® features the patented Siliclear Complex ™, a precise blend of bio-inert and bio-compatible silicone compounds, namely polysiloxane, silicone dioxide and non-volatile silicone components. It is therefore suitable for the use on children or people with sensitive skin
How does Kelo-cote® work?
Kelo-cote ® rapidly dries to form a custom fitted silicone sheet; this silicone gel sheet layer is gas permeable, flexible and waterproof. 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 that allows the scar to mature through normalized collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.
How long will it take for a scar to improve?
When using Kelo-cote ®, the recommended minimum treatment time is 60-90 days. Larger and older scars may take longer and continued use is recommended if improvement is still seen after the initial 90 days.
