Strataderm is used to treat both old and new scars. The silicone gel can also be used as abnormal scar prevention in the form of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Its non-sticky, transparent, rapidly drying silicone gel dries to form a protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof. This hydrates and protects the scars from chemical and microbial invasion. You can use Strataderm for a number of reasons. It can be used to soften and flatten scars, relieve the itching and discomfort of scars, or even reduce redness and discoloration that comes with some scars. Strataderm was established for all types of scars including those from general surgery, trauma, chronic wounds, burns, bites, acne and other diseases of the skin. Even if you have sensitive skin Strataderm can be used. It is safe for children as well.
