Nourisil™ MD

Silicone scar gel recommended as the first line of therapy for prevention and treatment of scars and keloids

How to treat scars? 

When skin is wounded or broken, the tissues break and cause a protein called collagen to be released. The collagen then builds up at the point of damage to help heal and strengthen the wound. New collagen continues to form for several months, the blood supply increases, which causes the scar to become red, raised, and lumpy. After some time, some collagen breaks down and the blood supply reduces, gradually making the scar smoother and softer. At this point, treatment of scar can begin. There are different treatment options that can depend on the type of scar. Some scar treatment options are silicone gels, laser therapy, steroids, dermal fillers, skin needling, and more. Knowing the type of scar you have can help with choosing the best treatment option. You might have a normal, fine-line scar as a result of surgery or a small wound, a keloid, as a result of an overgrowth of tissue that happens when too much collagen is produced at the site of a wound, a hypertrophic scar, which does not extend beyond the boundary of the original wound, or a pitted and sunken scar.

How do silicon scar gels work?

One of the possible treatments for scars are silicone gels. Silicone gel can be used on healing skin, but not on open wounds, to help soften and flatten a scar. They can also relieve itching and discomfort and reduce redness around the scar. Silicon gels, such as Nourisil™ MD, are recommended as the first line therapy for both prevention and treatment of scars and keloids. While other treatments exist, silicones are the only non-invasive, but evidence-based treatment. In addition, they have a higher patient acceptance and compliance. Nourisil™ MD silicone scar gel protects the scar by forming an invisible occlusive barrier, increases hydration to normalize collagen production at scar site, and alters the activation state of fibroblasts, reducing extracellular matrix synthesis. Nourisil™ MD silicone scar gel is easily applied on all areas of skin, including the face and joints, and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and children’s skin.
