What is Dermatix? Dermatix is an innovative, yet effective series of treatments for scars and other skin blemishes. Scars occur in different ways, whether by disease, surgery or accident and most will heal and diminish over time. However, sometimes some scars just will not fade and even though the skin has been repaired naturally, the appearance of those scars is unsightly and makes the person who has them feel self-conscious. Of course, how a scar heals, how it will appear and whether or not it will fade successfully depends mainly on genetics, the type of skin that a person has. Regardless, the psychological effects of scars can be far more devastating and that is why Dermatix developed a variety of silicone-type products to help in scar appearance improvement.
Dermatix claims to be able to handle most scars, including those that have been around for a long-time, including new ones. The manufacturers claim that their products have been clinically shown to make significant improvements in scar appearances, reducing even the nasty appearances of serious injury scars, burn scars and other major surgical scars.
Dermatix comes in two types – a silicon type gel, as well as silicone type sheets which are fabric backed and clear. In fact, the silicone as a means of treating scars is rightfully recognized for its non-invasive abilities to manage scars. Dermatix has developed it products, taking into account five important factors that affect how skin heals and how scars develop – age, skin types, body locations, scarring history and any wound type infections.
Dermatix offers three tube sizes for treatments, including the fifteen, thirty and sixty gram. They also recognize that scars can come in bigger sizes, creating clear and fabric type silicon sheets. These address scars that are big, raised, unfaded, dark, red, painful, itchy, uncomfortable, restrictive and ugly. Their products are currently recommended by some specialists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons for scar reduction. Though their products cannot remove scars completely, they can help in relieving the appearance, sensitivity and colour of the scars for a more favourable appearance for people stuck with scars. All of their products can be applied to most body areas, including the skin, joints and face.
