DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E is an advanced, topical silicone gel that is transparent, dries quickly and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance, while aiding the management of scarred skin surfaces resulting from surgery, burns and other injuries. This premium silicone gel contains the antioxidants Vitamin C and E. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E lightens, hydrates and flattens scars. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E relieves the itching and discomfort of scars, as well as reducing the discolouration associated with scars. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E gel is easily applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints and flexures and dries rapidly to form an individual “sheet”. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E was developed using the same basic long chain polymers as topical silicone gel sheeting, but is available in a tube. It contains polysiloxane, 1% Vitamin C ester and 10% Vitamin E.

What is DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel used for?
DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E is used to aid in the management of keloids and hypertrophic scars (such as those resulting from general surgical procedures, trauma wounds and burns), after the wound has healed and the skin surface is intact.
How should DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel be used?
Wash the affected area and pat dry. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E should be applied to clean, dry skin only. Gently massage a small amount of DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E into the scar. If you apply too much gently wipe away any excess with a tissue in order to avoid staining of clothing. Apply twice daily, in the morning and evening. Once dry, DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E may be covered with cosmetic blush.
Are there any possible unwanted effects of DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel?
