the product

KELOGEL is a silicon-base gel with clinically proven results in treating hypertrophic scars and keloids. Its unique, scientifically designed composition combines strong antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. Kelogel acts by creating a film on the skin, while it helps restore damaged skin.

Applying silicon gel locally offers spectacular results in keloids treatment. It is an easy, painless, non-invasive method. Additionally, patients may use it continuously throughout the treatment duration.

indications

KELOGEL is a silicon-based (dimethicone) product.

Silicon:

  • creates a film on the skin, preventing contact between the scar tissue and the external environment.
  • is extremely water-resistant.
  • is fragrance free.
  • does not block the skin pores.

KELOGEL is used to improve skin appearance and relieve symptoms caused by keloids, hypertrophic scars, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and contractures resulting from injuries, surgical incisions, burns or conditions such as acne. It may be combined with other treatments, such as cryotherapy, electrocautery and curettage.

ingredients - action

KELOGEL ingredients include:

 

SILICONE OIL 90%: Specific biopassive and biocompatible silicone oils with high viscosity (Polysiloxane) and high MW, which forms a water resistant, air permeable membrane functioning as an extra skin layer. Silicone can reduce scars by facilitating indirectly the necessary process between several cell types, which creates a balance between scar formation and reduction. The effectiveness of silicon oils has been established after full trials on patients and through specific analysis methods as per the existing references.

 

FILAGRINOL: A vegetal complex which helps control the synthesis of epidermal filaggrin. Filaggrin plays an important role in facilitating cornification, which assists the skin in acting as a barrier and remaining moisturized, smooth and resilient.

 

ROSA MOSCHATA OIL: Rich in linolenic (39%) and linoleic (41%) acids (Omega-3 and 6), which contribute to the healing process. In keloids, the levels of linolenic and linoleic acids are quite low.

 

ALLIUM CEPA: A natural source of antioxidants. According to clinical studies, it substantially improves the scar color.

 

VITAMIN E: A strong antioxidant and a highly effective moisturizing factor that improves skin elasticity.

 

a-BISABOLOL: A natural anti-inflammatory substance that relieves local pain.

 

INGREDIENTS: Dimethicone, Rosa Moschata Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Silica, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Olea Europaea Oil (Olive) Unsaponifiables, Bisabolol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycine Soja Oil Unsaponifiables, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil Unsaponifiables, Allium Cepa (Onion) Bulb Extract, Pollen Extract, BHT.
