What Is The Difference Between A Scar Gel And A Scar Cream?

When it comes to scar healing, there's one ingredient you're going to want up your sleeve: silicone. Considered the gold standard in scar management, this ingredient is crucial for maintaining proper moisture levels within your wound, one of the key factors in proper tissue healing.

In fact, we love silicone's scar healing properties so much, we've included it across the board in our scar healing line, from our topical gels and creams, to our silicone sheeting. With two of our products in particular, howeverRej没vaSil Silicone Scar Gel聽and聽Scar Esthetique Scar Cr猫me with Silicone涓聽one of the most common questions we get is this:

What's the difference?

Today we're doing a deep-dive into each of these products, exploring their unique capabilities!

Rej没vaSil Silicone Scar Gel

The number one thing to remember about our silicone scar gel is that it mimics the healing mechanism provided by silicone sheeting, a scar-healing favorite among dermatologists and plastic surgeons alike. Our silicone scar gel decreases collagen production by forming a semi-occlusive layer over the patient's scar. We recommend using Rej没vaSil in tandem with silicone sheeting so that patients get complete coverage for their scar around the clock.

How To Use Rej没vaSil

One of the things Rej没vaSil is great for is scars in highly visible areas, as聽the clear gel聽dries quickly,聽becoming virtually unnoticeable. When alternating between sheeting and gel, we suggest using the scar gel during the day. This regimen allows patients to freely navigate through their day without having to secure sheeting to their scar. Our scar gel is also great for facial scars and is safe for children over the age of three.

Scar Esthetique Scar Cr猫me with Silicone

Long-term scar management is the key to differentiating between our scar gel and scar cream.聽Even after a scar becomes flat and smooth, it鈥檚 important to continue the regimen to get the best possible results. Our scar cream specifically targets the color of聽the scar to complete the healing process. Scar Esthetique contains many of the ingredients common to other scar creams such as onion extract, polypeptides and antioxidants but聽with an added twist that makes all the difference:聽silicone. Our unique formula allows the cream to be easily absorbed in to the skin to minimize the appearance of scars and support overall skin health.

How To Use Scar Esthetique

Scar Esthetique is great for scars for which the primary concern is聽scar discoloration. Oftentimes, it is necessary to first treat your scar with a combination therapy of silicone sheets and gel. That is why we offer all three products in the easy to use Scar Heal Kit.
