Dermatix Silicone Gel is a transparent, self-drying topical Silicone Gel that maintains the skin's moisture balance, while helping to manage scarred skin surfaces that have occurred from surgery, burns and other injuries. Dermatix has been shown to flatten, soften and smooth scars, relieve the itching and discomfort of scars as well as reduce the discolouration associated with scars.
Dermatix gel is easily applied to all areas of the skin, including the face, joints and flexures, and dries rapidly to form an invisible "sheet". Dermatix was developed using the same basic long chain polymers as topical silicone gel sheeting, but it is available in a tube. It contains polysiloxane, silicon dioxide. The gel is supplied in tubes of 15g.
What is Dermatix gel used for?
Dermatix is used for the management of scars after the wound has healed and the skin surface is intact, and in the prevention of scar development in the form of keloids and hypertrophic scars resulting from general surgical procedures, trauma wounds and burns.
The benefits of Dermatix Silicone Gel:
For which types of scars is Dermatix suitable?
Dermatix visibly improves established and new scars on the face and body, including hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Can I use Dermatix to help avoid scars?
If the skin has been ruptured you cannot avoid a scar, but you can make it less visible. You must only start Dermatix when the wound has completely healed.
What will Dermatix do to improve my scars?
Dermatix is clinically proven to improve scars. Dermatix has been shown to soften, flatten and smooth scars, and to relieve the itching and discomfort associated with them. Silicone products, like Dermatix can significantly reduce the visibility of your scar.
How long will I need to use Dermatix before I can see a difference in my scar?
An early benefit of Dermatix is usually seen within 4–5 weeks of usage, you will notice an improvement in the itching and discomfort of the scar, but generally a significant improvement in appearance will not be seen until a minimum of 2 months of continuous use. Dermatix will not work overnight.
How long should I use Dermatix for?
Studies have shown that silicone works most effectively if it is in constant contact with the scar – so be sure to use the gel morning and night as part of your daily routine, or the sheets up to 23 hours a day, for a minimum of two months. Further benefits may result from extended use.
Can Dermatix be used on sensitive skin, children, darker skinned people and pregnant women?
How is Dermatix different from other scar treatment products?
Dermatix is effective, clinically tested and proven, convenient, painless and can be used on all skin types as well as on and around joints and bony areas. There is no drug in Dermatix.
How else can I take care of my scar?
Scars, especially fresh ones, should not be exposed to extremes of temperature (intense sunshine, sunbeds, saunas and extreme cold). Tight clothing should also be avoided, in case it irritates or injures the scar tissue. Care should be taken during stretching and strengthening exercises because the skin, which has already been damaged, is extremely sensitive.
How should Dermatix Silicone Gel be used?
Dermatix must not be used on broken skin. Be careful if applying Dermatix around your eyelids to avoid contact with the eye. The gel should be applied in a very thin layer to the affected area twice daily following the instructions below:

I purchased it three days ago. I have decade old keloids..and they itch n pain for hours.. just a single application n they feel softer n have settled down...
I used this gel on a small but deep burn on my arm, after just over two months of use I can now only see the scar if i really look. I would recommend this product to anyone who has fresh scars.
I had an accident in 2011 and am still using dermatix on the severe scarring following nose reconstruction and tissue loss. My facial surgeon gave me it on prescription and I have continued to use it. It does work. One thing to mention is that it says that it dries and you can apply make-up over the top. My surgeon said he had found no-one who could manage to do this, and I cant either - so you cant put anything on top of it as camoflage. One tube lasts for ages as you need to use the tinnest layer you possibly can for it work well.
easy to use, but not working as well as the silicone sheets! Best option would probably to combine the two
