Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel
With Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel you made a very good choice for the care of your red and raised scar. When a wound affects the deeper layer of skin (dermis) a scar is unavoidable but its final appearance can be optimized by proper support.
Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel’s innovative formula has been specially designed to provide this support in order to help prevent forming and treat excessive scarring after surgery or injuries.
Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel is used either:
A) Alone in case of wounds closed since less than one month.
B) Together with the Massage Ball provided with it in case of wounds closed for more than one month.
How does Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel act to help dimiish the appearance of excessive scars?
The key reasons for excessive scarring and the formation of a red and raised scar is the prolongued and too high level of inflammation during the remodeling phase. By helping the new skin retain water, inflammation is reduced as well as collagen build up, resulting this result in smaller scars.
Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel has been developed in light of the latest scientific recommendations on scar formation and management and helps to reduce red and raised scars in three ways:
The silicone forms a film that covers the scar, protecting the newly formed skin from drying out and thus preserving the moisture balance.
Humectants such as panthenol assist this action by binding water in the skin.
The Massage Ball helps the breakdown of collagen fibers in older scars.
In case of older scars Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel acts in the same way: by providing adequate moisturization it reduces inflammation and collagen formation. In these more solid older scars this action can be
further supported by using the Massage Ball provided with Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel. This massaging device allows helping break down the collagen fibrilles which are inside the scar.
Use of Bepanthen Anti-Scar Gel results in a smoothening, softening and flattening of older scars. The redness, tension and itching which are often present are also reduced.
