Kelo-Cote

Alliance Pharmaceuticals Ltd

Description

A clinically-proven, topical silicone gel for the management and prevention of old and new scars. It is self-drying and forms a bond with the outer layer of skin cells to form a flexible, breathable, waterproof barrier, providing hydration and protection to the scar. This creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normalised collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar. Kelo-cote is available with additional UV SPF 30 for areas that require additional protection, such as face, neck and hands, and a spray, ideal for joints, flexures, hairy areas or sensitive scars such as those caused from burns. 

Indications

Management and prevention of excessive scars, such as hypertrophic and keloid scars.

Topical silicone gel; topical silicone gel with UV; spray
