Kelocote Scar Gel 15G

Kelocote Scar Gel 15G


Kelo-cote is a lightweight, self-drying silicone gel for the treatment of scars. Kelo-cote rapidly dries to forma 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 which allows the scar to mature through normalized collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.

Kelo-cote has been shown to flatten, soften and smooth scars, relieve the itching and discomfort of scars, as well as reduce the discolouration associated with scars. Silicone gels have been shown to be effective in treating abnormal scarring in the form of hypertrophic scars and keloids. The 2002 International Clinical Recommendations on Scar Management recommended “silicone should be the first line of treatment in the initial management of the scars and in the prevention of hypertrophic scars and keloids.”

Kelo-cote can be used on joints, flexures, hairy areas and large area scars such as those caused from burns or major trauma. Kelo-cote can be used in conjunction with pressure garments or other scar therapy options. Kelo-cote is intended for the management of old and new hypertrophic and keloid scars resulting from general surgical procedures, trauma, wounds and burns.

Application instructions:

Ensure the affected area is clean and dry. Apply Kelo-cote to the area as a very thin layer and allow to dry. Apply twice a day (morning and evening) and you may cover area with pressure garments, sun block or cosmetics once it has dried.
