Dermatix Ultra Advanced Scar Treatment gel is a clinically proven, convenient, and cosmetically elegant treatment option for managing scars.
Dermatix Ultra is a topical silicone gel that is transparent, dries quickly, and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance, while aiding the management of scarred skin surfaces. Dermatix Ultra has been shown to flatten, smooth, and reduce the discoloration and itching of new and older keloids, stretch marks, and scars resulting from surgical procedures, burns, and other injuries. This light, non-greasy formula is easily applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints, and flexures, and dries rapidly to form an invisible “sheet” that leaves the skin feeling clean and silky. Dermatix Ultra may be used under makeup. Dermatix Ultra was developed using the same basic long chain polymers as topical silicone gel sheeting, but is available in a tube. It contains cyclic and polymeric siloxanes and Vitamin C ester.
