How Does the Kelo-Cote Scar Gel Work to Heal Scars?

Did you know that scar formation is part of the body’s natural healing process? Scars are made of collagen, a protein that is released when the skin breaks due to an injury. But because collagen builds up over time, they result in the raised, lumpy formation you may know as scars. Scars are permanent, but the good news is that you can use the Kelo-Cote scar gel to help make them fade over time.

How Kelo-Cote scar gel get rids of scars

Kelo-Cote is a topical scar gel that is formulated to improve the appearance of hypertrophic scars. Its not-so-secret ingredient is silicone, a substance known to support the body’s natural healing process.

Here’s how silicone works:

  • Increase hydration

Fibroblasts are cells responsible for producing the collagen that seals a wound. One of the main functions of silicone gel is to hydrate the uppermost layer of the skin, which in turn, regulates fibroblast production and reduces collagen formation. As a result, the skin can “breathe” much more freely, and the scar that forms is softer and flatter.

  • Balance growth factors

Before fibroblasts can synthesise collagen, they must first be stimulated by specific growth factors in the body. Moreover, some growth factors are responsible for increasing the level of collagenases or substances that break down collagen. Using silicone scar gel can help balance the expression of these growth factors, controlling collagen formation.

  • Improve protection

Scar formation works within and outside the body. For example, while growth factors and fibroblasts can stimulate collagen synthesis, some types of bacteria can also induce excessive collagen production.

Silicone gel helps protect the scarred tissue from external elements, preventing bacteria from stimulating excessive collagen production.

To prevent scar formation, you’ll need to start treatment as early as possible. For example, it’s best to apply Keto-Cote gel right after the wound has closed or the stitches have been removed. In addition, the gel must be applied in a very thin layer twice a day for two to three months.

Don’t forget to purchase your Keto-Cote scar gel and other scar treatment products from an experienced medical supplier sourcing their products from MHRA-licenced manufacturers in the UK.
