Scars usually result from trauma of some kind (surgery, accident, disease) and are a natural part of the healing process. A normal scar usually develops during the first 48 hours after wound closure and fades within 3 to 12 months. However various factors can interfere with and alter the wound-healing process, causing an “overhealing” or continuation of the scarring process. As a result, an abnormal scar develops. The abnormal scar may grow bigger, fail to fade, restrict the movement of a joint, cause discomfort, itching or pain.

Abnormal scars may cause distress because of their appearance. But any scar can be perceived as a personal problem. Some may learn to accept their scar, but many never forget it. It is widely accepted by psychologists that proactively treating to reduce the visibility of a scar can actually help boost self-esteem.

Stratamed – Open Wound Scar Gel

StratamedStratamed is a breakthrough treatment that can actually be used on non epithelialised wounds – this basically means wounds where the skin has not yet healed over the top of the broken surface. This product is great because it can work to heal the skin before the scarring process even begins, allowing the skin to repair much better than it would have otherwise. Other products can often not be applied until after the wound has fully closed, which can take weeks – Stratamed has changed all that. This is a great product to have on hand or have ready for use in the early days of a wound.

Scars – Strataderm Scar Therapy Gel – the next-generation scar therapy gel

StratadermStrataderm is a silicone gel that is applied in a thin layer to the affected skin to form a self-drying, transparent, flexible and gas-permeable silicone gel sheet that adheres to the skin. This ensures a constant contact time to the entire surface of the scar allowing it to work 24 hours a day. Strataderm is ideal for any irregular skin/scar surfaces, the face, moving parts such as joints, and any size of scar. It can be used on both new and old scars.

The advanced formulation of Strataderm has been developed using new silicone technology that has superior durability, skin-feel and drying time. The non-sticky, odourless formulation does not lead to secondary side-effects such as maceration, rashers, pruritus and infection and is therefore suitable for children and people with sensitive skin.

Strataderm scar therapy gel:
  • Softens and flattens raised scars
  • Relieves the itching and discomfort associated with scars
  • Reduces redness and discolouration
  • Prevents abnormal and excessive scar formation
How to use Strataderm
  • Ensure that the scar is clean and dry
  • Apply a very thin layer and allow to dry (3-4 minutes)
  • Strataderm should be applied once daily, and maintained in continuous contact with the skin (24 hours/day)
  • Once dry, Strataderm can be covered with sunscreen, cosmetics, pressure garments or casts

Strataderm is recommended as a minimum treatment of 60-90 days. Larger and older scars may take longer. Continued use is recommended until no further improvement is seen.

How much Strataderm do I need?

Scars after surgery Minimising Scars after Surgery June 22, 2017 - No matter how good your plastic surgeon is, it is almost guaranteed that you will develop a scar after any surgical operation. When skin sustains damage or is subject to incisions, part of its recovery process is scarring. While the idea of scarring can be enough to make some people reconsider going under the knife to begin with, the good news is that there are a number of different options and lifestyle choices that can help reduce the appearance of scarring following a surgical procedure. Understanding the causes of scarring and how you can help your body to heal itself are crucial in long-term minimisation of scars. What causes Scarring? There are a number of different factors that will influence the development of scar tissue following surgery. These include: The Incision: Your surgeon will factor in scarring before making even a single cut. The placement and size of the incision plays a large role in the final appearance of scars. Your Age: As you age, production of collagen in your skin decreases, affecting skin elasticity and causing problems with wound healing. Genetics: Some people are more likely to develop noticeable scarring due to genetic predisposition. Lifestyle: Certain lifestyle choices such […]

Wounds, Scars, Stretchmarks Post Surgery Wound Care – Why It’s So Important September 20, 2016 - There are so many things to think about when it comes to having your plastic surgery, sometimes it can seem overwhelming. However something important often overlooked is the care of your wound where incisions during surgery were made. Looking after the site of the incision properly can mean all the difference between a neat and tidy scar compared to a possible angry, open and long-to-heal wound that results in a raised, more noticeable scar.

As well as following your practitioner’s instructions for dressings, etc. you may wish to consider a product called Stratamed. Developed by […]
Stratamark Interview with Dr Chris Hughes, Stratamark September 15, 2015 - What’s your experience in using Stratamark? I am involved in a clinical trial with Stratamark and other clients. The aim is to assess the effectiveness of Stratamark in the prevention of stretch marks, and also in the reduction of stretch marks once present. The trial is not yet finished, but the preliminary indications are that Stratamark is effective in reducing stretch marks; that there are fewer women getting stretch marks while using Stratamark; and that, in those women who have gotten stretch marks, their appearance is less severe. What’s the difference between Stratamark and other options on the market? Stratamark is based on specific understanding of the physiological causes of stretch marks, and ways to prevent that. Stretch marks are thought to be a version of scarring, and the principle ingredient of Stratamark changes the way the tissue scars and helps normalise the collagen synthesis cycle. Some people might find benefit in using other preparations, but these products have not been rigorously tested. How do you apply Stratamark? During the trial, patients have been using a small amount of Stratamark everyday, from mid-pregnancy onwards. The study is restricted to using Stratamark on the skin of the abdominal wall – this […]
