Kelo-cote® is an innovative topical silicone gel for the management of surgical scars and for the prevention of abnormal scars in the form of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Kelo-cote® is indicated for scars resulting from trauma, surgery, burns or other events that result in broken skin.
Kelo-cote® gel self-dries to a waterproof, gas permeable membrane that acts like an extra layer of skin. It helps to soften, flatten and smooth the scar, while maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the adjacent skin. It has also been shown to reduce the discoloration and itching associated with scars.
For the management and prevention of scars, Kelo-cote® can be used as soon as all of your surgical incisions are completely healed. It is usually advisable to wait about two to three weeks after surgery before using silicone gels. For optimal application strategies, discuss with Dr. Brenner prior to use.
