Silagen® Scar Refinement System
At the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery we are now offering the Silagen® Scar Refinement System for the prevention of visible scarring after surgical procedures. Current theories on wound-healing and scarring indicate that preventing water-loss from the dermis through the skin during the healing process can prevent the overproduction of collagen, which limits the formation of scar tissue. The Silagen® 100% medical grade silicone gels (one with SPF and one without) and gel sheeting are designed to lock moisture into healing skin to dramatically minimize scar intensity, thickness, and visibility.
The Silagen® Scar Refinement System includes three products:
- 100% Pure Silicone Gel – Smooth, easily absorbed gel prevents water-loss through the skin.
- Silicone Gel + SPF 30 – Maintains skin moisture and protects scars from developing hyperpigmentation caused by UV exposure.
- Silicone Gel Sheeting – a thin, protective silicone barrier which improves gel absorption and seals the skin.
Consistent prescribed use of these three Silagen® products can lead to less prominent scarring after healing from surgical procedures such as breast reduction, tummy tuck, body lift, and breast lift. Whether your surgery is performed with very few, hidden incisions, or clearly visible incisions, the Silagen® Scar Refinement System can provide an effective wound treatment protocol for managing the development of scars of any size.
If you are concerned about scarring after your plastic surgery procedure, we encourage you to contact the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with Dr. James Matas. During your appointment, Dr. Matas can explain his customized surgical approach and discuss how Silagen® Scar Refinement System can help manage post-operative scarring.
