When skin is cut, burned or scraped, your body has a natural emergency response team! Cells called fibroblasts make collagen to fill the gap and cement the skin back together. Mother Nature is truly amazing. Fibroblasts always make too much collagen. However, if you leave too much collagen the resulting thick scar would limit motion, be tender and ugly. Therefore, our cells are also programmed to also make collagenase. This enzyme melts the extra collagen. The ideal goal is to create just the right balance between collagen and collagenase to have a tiny line that welds the skin back together and recreates the original shape of the skin before the injury. If too much collagen is left, we have a thick overgrown, unsightly scar.
Scars can result from accidents, cuts, burns, surgery and anything else that damages our skin. Where a scar is or how it was treated before doesn’t much matter. If you have extra collagen you have an unsightly scar and melting that extra is the key.
We spend a lot of time, energy, and money on our skin. We want it to look good, feel good, and stay young looking for as long as possible. For plastic surgeons, the scar that remains is their reputation. Hundreds worldwide trust Scarguard after surgery or injury. Here’s why…
Managing scars is all about leaving the least collagen possible to fix the problem. Scarguard® combines medical silicone, cortisone, and vitamin E into a Nanopatch® that is nearly invisible. It has been shown in independent, published medical studies to help balance the body's production of collagen and collagenase to minimize scars. In one study, there was 75% less scar tissue when used after the stitches were removed for 12 weeks!
Improving quality of life
Your scars should be treated before they even form. Scarguard helps your body make more collagenase, which is the natural enzyme that breaks down the extra collagen that is present in any scar. while it is impossible to completely erase any scar, some can be barely visible. It's always better to try to prevent overgrowth of scar tissue rather than trying to play catch up after it already forms.
Fast and invisible treatment
Scarguard is a paint on liquid that dries in seconds to form a flexible, invisible Nano-thin patch. Perfect for new and old scars, It is nearly invisible. You can even put makeup on over it once it dries if you want. No need to worry about how it looks on the surface. Just apply it directly to the scarred area and it will work its magic!
No more unsightly scars
The key ingredient in Scarguard is topical silicone, which has been clinically shown to reduce the formation of both old and new scars. By increasing the hydration of the stratum corneum (the uppermost layer of skin), it reduces collagen production and facilitates regulation of fibroblast production. The vitamin E keeps the skin moist and healthy while the cortisone decreases inflammation. Essentially, this treatment helps reduce scarring by helping your body balance the collagen/collagenase production that naturally occurs in healing skin. Reduce your risk of developing unsightly and embarrassing scars by using Scarguard.
