Give the patients chance to regain beauty with the ability of preventing scar formation.
The mechanism of action of silicone-based products in scar management has not been completely determined, but the beneﬁcial effects of SGS on scars are not mediated by pressure or by changes in oxygen tension or blood ﬂow. Similarly, the effects likely are not attributable to silicone release and entry into scar, because biopsies of scars treated with SGS have shown no evidence of a foreign body reaction. An increase in skin surface temperature could be involved because the skin surface temperature of hypertrophic burn scars under SGS is increased by 1.7℃, and temperature increases of this magnitude can signiﬁcantly increase collagenase activity and could affect scarring. Development of a static electric ﬁeld also may be involved, because it has been proposed that the negative static electric ﬁeld generated by friction between SGS and the skin could cause collagen realignment and result in the involution of scars. In fact, cushions consisting of a silicone occlusive covering ﬁlled with silicone oil provide a stronger static electric ﬁeld than SGS and are at least as effective as SGS in normalizing excessive scars. However, there is no evidence currently that the static electric ﬁeld produced by silicone products causes changes in the extracellular matrix of scars.
A. At 1 to 2 weeks after wounding, reepithelialization is completed, but the stratum corneum is immature and allows abnormally high levels of TEWL. Dehydration of the stratum corneum is signaled (bluearrows) to keratinocytes, perhapsvia an osmotic gradient.
B. Keratinocytes are stimulated to produce cytokines (redarrows), which in epidermal-dermal signaling activate dermal ﬁbroblasts to synthesize and release collagen. Excessive collagen production leads to abnormal scarring.
C. Treatment of the reepithelialized wound or the scar with silicone gel restores the barrier function of the stratum corneum, reducing TEWL and turning off the stimulation of keratinocytes. Keratinocytes stop producing cytokines that activate dermal ﬁbroblasts.
D. After 2 to 3 months of silicone gel treatment, collagen deposition has normalized, and there is no scar hypertrophy.*
Outstanding corrective treatment for hypertrophic and keloid scars.
LUOFUCON® Silicone Gel Scar Sheet is a kind of transparent, soft and elastic sheet dressing. It is mainly made up of medical grade silicone, and effective in preventing the formation of new scars and reducing the appearance of existing scars.
