Dermatix® - Topical Silicone Gel for scar prevention in freshly healed wounds and reduction of prominent immature scars.

What is Dermatix® gel?

Dermatix® is a clear quick-drying gel that helps maintain the skin's moisture balance, whilst treating scars resulting from surgery, burns, and other injuries. Dermatix® has been shown to flatten, soften and smooth scars, relieve the pain, itching and discomfort of scars as well as reduce any associated redness. Dermatix® gel is easily applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints and flexures, and dries quickly to form an invisible "sheet ".

Dermatix®, made using the same basic long chain polymers as Silicone Gel sheeting, is available in a tube. The gel, containing polysiloxane, is available in tubes of l5g and 60g.*

What is Dermatix® gel used for?

Dermatix® is used for the treatment and prevention of keloids and hypertrophic scars (such as those resulting from general surgical procedures, trauma wounds and burns), ideally used just after the wound has freshly healed and the skin surface becomes intact. It may also be used for prominent red immature scars that are actively healing; often up to two years post wound closure.

How should Dermatix® gel be used?

Step 1: Clean the area to be treated with mild soap and water, pat dry.

Step 2: Cut the tip of the tube. Apply a very thin coat of Dermatix® Gel on the scar immediately after the wound has healed and rub it in.

Step 3: Allow to dry for 4 – 5 minutes. If the gel has not dried, remove the excess product.

1 Application 2X a day in the morning and evening
(1x a day under occlusive bandage)
for at least 2 months.

You can apply make-up over the Dermatix® to cover scar.

The recommended minimum duration of treatment is two months. Continue to use Dermatix® for as long as benefits are experienced.

When should Dermatix® gel not be used?

  • Dermatix® should not be applied to unhealed open wounds.
  • Dermatix® should not be placed in contact with mucous membranes, or applied too close to the eyes.
  • Dermatix® should not be applied over other skin treatments without the advice of your doctor.

Are there any possible unwanted effects of Dermatix® gel?

Rarely, the gel may cause redness, pain or irritation to the skin. If you are concerned about these or any other unwanted effects, consult your pharmacist or doctor.

How should Dermatix® be stored?
