About a month ago, I went through a procedure, kinda like a caesarian surgery and as most of any other surgery, it leaves mark on the skin. Yes, it is painful alright, to experience it and see the mark, yikes!
Looking down at the booboo, which of course I wont show it off here, I want the skin to be back as it used to. So the doctor gave me a product that said help remove or reduce the scar. Dermatix Ultra Scar Reduction Advanced Silicone Gel, hmm, scar reduction? So, it is definitely reducing and not completely erased the scar.
Details from http://www.dermatix.asia/:

The clear gel feels easy on the skin and so far I haven't experience ANY discomfort while using it. I always put it on a clean skin and put a thin layer of it on top of the closed wound. It is not recommended to be put on top of open wound ya, so please do be careful on this and read the instruction given on the leaflet.
The gel easily create a thin film covering the scar on the skin and slowly but sure help the scar to diminish. At first when the scar is new, there's a bit swollen and the skin appears darker, after a month the swelling reduced by far and the skin appears lighter too in terms of shade. I was advice to use the product as soon as the wound is dry and the scar is new. Old scar will take longer time to heal than the new one.
I've used the product for a month now and ... it does help reducing and not 100% eliminating the scar. It's still one month and I think there's half of tube left which is enough for one more month.
Will I keep using it? Yes, since the product show a progressive result.
My tips: Consult your doctor when using it and help make sure the booboo are closed tightly before using Dermatix Ultra Scar Reduction Advanced Silicone Gel.
May be used on facial skin as well.
