At Rejûvaskin, we offer a three different scar products each containing silicone, the number one ingredient for scar management. A question that we hear often involves two of our most popular products, RejûvaSil Silicone Scar Gel and Scar Esthetique Scar Crème with Silicone. That question is, “what is the difference?” If you find yourself asking this question, you have come to the right place. This post is all about the differences between these two great products and how to choose which one is right for you.
RejûvaSil 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. Silicone scar sheets are identified as the gold standard for scar management among dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Our silicone scar gel decreases collagen production by forming a semi-occlusive layer over your scar. We recommend using RejûvaSil in tandem with silicone sheeting so that you get complete coverage for your scar around the clock.
RejûvaSil is great for scars in highly visible areas because as it dries it become almost unnoticeable. When alternating between sheeting and gel, we suggest using the scar gel during the day. This regimen allows you to freely navigate your day without having to secure sheeting to your scar. Our scar gel is great for facial scars and is safe for children over the age of three.
Scar Ethetique Scar Crème with Silicone
Long-term scar management is the key to differentiating between our scar gel and scar cream. Once your scar becomes flat and smooth it’s important to continue the regimen to get the best possible results. Our scar cream specifically targets the color of your 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 of course we also add 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.
Scar Esthetique is great for scars for which the primary concern is color. Often times it is necessary to first treat your scar with combination therapy of silicone sheets and gel. That is why we offer all three products in the easy to use Scar Heal Kit.
Hopefully this post has helped you better understand the difference between our scar gel and scar cream. If you still have questions, just contact us. We love getting to talk with each and every person that uses our products. The most important thing when it comes to skincare is finding what works for your skin. Because healthy skin is always in.
