Action
Dermatix Ultra gel is an advanced scar formula that is proven effective in the management of scars.
Dermatix Ultra gel is manufactured with innovative silicone gel technology including cyclopentasiloxane (CPX) which imparts a soft and silky feel. CPX is a new generation film forming elastomer that offers the characteristics of excellent spreadability, quick drying, improved durability and wash off resistance that further enhance flattening and softening of scars.
Dermatix Ultra gel also has a unique ingredient of Vitamin C ester, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, which is a new active lipid form of Pro-Vitamin C with non-irritating neutral pH. A significant body of scientific research supports the use of Vitamin C which has cutaneous benefits in photoprotection and lightening hyperpigmentation. The absorption and clinical effect of Vitamin C in Dermatix Ultra gel is unknown.
A scar is usually red or darker in color compared to the normal surrounding skin; it is thick, dry and elevated and can be itchy and painful. With regular and proper use of Dermatix Ultra, the scar will flatten, soften and lighten over time. Itchiness and pain will also be reduced with Dermatix Ultra.
Indications/Uses
Dermatix Ultra gel works on scars caused by a variety of incidences. These may include scars resulting from surgery, burn, cuts, scratches, insect bites etc. Scars resulting from these incidences may become large, thick, dry and elevated and can be dark or red in appearance and may be itchy or even painful.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Using Dermatrix Ultra gel is quick and easy. The patient will observe the best improvement of the scar if the patient complies with the application instructions as follows: Dermatix Ultra Gel Application Guide: Clean the affected area with mild soap and water then pat dry.
