Scarbandit’s products are designed to bond with the outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum and form a protective barrier against physical and microbial invasion of the scar site.
Newly formed scar tissue is very fragile, and moisture from within evaporates on the skin surface. A silicone sheet or gel covers the scar site and contains the moisture from evaporating. This reduces collagen and keratinocyte stimulation. Which results in reduced height, redness & improved elasticity of the scar site.
Typically, scars start to soften in around a week. Improvement in appearance, texture and color around 5 – 10 weeks. Continue the therapy for 3 – 6 months. However, keep in mind that all scars are different, and results may vary. For older scars the process takes longer than on newly formed scars. In general, the sooner you start with the treatment the better.
The scar treatment process varies greatly from person to person. Every skin is unique, and many factors determine how the treatment duration. We recommend a minimum treatment time of 90 days.
Scarbandit products are suited for the treatment of surgery, keloid, hypertrophic, c-section, burn and acne scars. All our products contain medical grade silicone that has been proven to flatten, soften, reduce and improve the overall appearance of the scar.
Deep acne scars on the face are best handled with extra attention and care. To obtain the best possible result, let a dermatologist first examine your skin to determine the actual skin problem.
Often deep acne scars require more intense procedures than the standard over-the-counter options. Some of these treatments include; steroid injections, dermal fillers, punch excisions, lasers, radiofrequency therapy… or a combination of the above. But again, this is something that needs to be discussed thoroughly with a dermatologist.
Of course! Scarbandit products are classified as an FDA Class-1 Medical device for the treatment and reduction of scars.
Of course! All our products contain ingredients that are safe to use for mom, baby and your children.
As with any topical material that is directly applied to the skin’s surface, some type of reaction is possible. In the unlikely event that you encounter a reaction (redness, pain or skin irritation), discontinue treatment, consult us via email or our socials. Consult your physician if there is a continue discomfort. People with known allergies to silicone should not use this product.
Scarbandit products are for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, open wounds, mucous membranes and third-degree burns. Furthermore, people with known allergies to silicone should not use this product.
Scarbandit products are designed to be effective for both new and older scars up to 2 years. If the scar is older than 2 years, then the skin has stabilized itself and OTC products won’t be an effective solution for you.
Yes, you can. However, it is not ideal as water, soaps, shampoos, etc.… may interfere with the adhesion.
Acclimatize your skin by applying the silicone sheet for 4 hours per day for the first 2 days. 8 hours for the next 2 days. Then 2 more hours with each day. The silicone sheet should be worn for a minimum of 12 hours a day. Optimal therapy requires the silicone sheet to be worn for 23 hours. This gives your skin around 1 hour to breathe and calm down.
