Scar reduction creams

Dec 29, 2018 | Wound Scar Management

Mr David Morgan recommends the use of scar reduction creams that promote faster wound healing and help to prevent abnormal scars from developing.

These creams include:

  • Stratamed
    An advanced film-forming wound dressing, this scar reduction cream is used after surgery to form a thin and protective layer that remains in constant contact with the damaged skin. The cream works by creating an ideal environment for faster wound healing, as well as reduced downtime. It also helps to protect the skin from microbial invasion, and prevents the growth of unwanted bacteria.

    Stratamed also helps to relieve some uncomfortable post-operative symptoms, such as itching, burning, redness and swelling. Because it doesn’t include any alcohol, parabens or fragrances, the scar reduction cream is suitable for those with sensitive skin, and can even be used on children.

    If Mr David Morgan recommends Stratamed for you, he will explain how to use it in detail. It is important that you keep your surgical wound clean and that you pat as much wound fluid from the are before applying the product. Mr David Morgan generally recommends that the cream is used immediately following your procedure until your skin has fully recovered. He will advise you as to how often you should apply it to your wound.

  • Strataderm
    Strataderm is a professional scar therapy gel that helps to prevent abnormal scarring, assists in softening and flattening raised scars, and reduces redness and discolouration. It is also a very helpful formula in reducing uncomfortable side effects like itching.

    Mr David Morgan may recommend the scar reduction gel for a wide range of patients, because it is safe to use for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, children, and those with sensitive skin. The formula contains no active ingredients, is free from alcohol, parabens and fragrances, is transparent, and best of all, is completely odourless.

    If Strataderm is the best option for your particular needs, you will need to make sure that your skin is properly prepared before applying the gel. To do so, make sure that your skin is clean and dry before applying a very thin layer of the gel to the relevant area. Try and distribute the gel evenly on the affected area of skin. The gel only takes around three to four minutes to dry, and once it has dried sufficiently, it can be covered with clothes and even sunscreen and cosmetics.

Mr David Morgan will give you detailed instructions about when and how to use the formula.
