Silicon Gel

Once the initial wound has healed, we recommend moisturising and massage of the area to minimise the appearance of scarring.

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ mole removal doctors recommend Kelo-Cote UV gel for best results after the removal of moles or cysts.

Clinically Proven Results

Kelo-Cote® has been clinically proven to reduce the redness, hardness, elevation, itch and pain that can be associated with scars.

It can even help to soften, flatten and smooth old and new scars while maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the adjacent skin.

UV Formula

The UV formula provides vital protection from the sun’s UV rays during healing, as UV exposure has been clinically proven to interfere with healing, as well as being associated with the risk of inflammation and pigmentation.

This product is available from Cosmedics Putney clinic and Harley Street clinic.

Silicon Scar Gel FAQ: Questions & Answers

How does Kelo-Cote® work?

Close Icon

Kelo-Cote® forms a bond with the outer layer of dead skin cells to form a protective layer over the skin. This layer forms a barrier against chemical, physical and microbial invasion of the scar site, yet the layer is gas permeable, flexible and waterproof.

This layer protects the scar while it matures, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar. It also helps to keep the area hydrated, further assisting with healing.

What is Kelo-Cote® made of?

Close Icon

Kelo-Cote® is a patented proprietary formula containing bio-inert and bio-compatible silicone compounds (polysiloxane, silicone dioxide and non-volatile silicone components).

How do I apply Kelo-Cote®?

Close Icon
  • Ensure that the skin is clean and dry
  • Apply Kelo-Cote® as a very thin layer and allow to dry. This should not take long. If it has not dried within 4–5 minutes, remove the excess and allow the drying process to continue
  • Once dry, Kelo-Cote® can be covered with clothing, sun block or cosmetics
  • For maximum effect, Kelo-Cote® gel should have 24 hour contact with the skin
  • Apply twice daily for best results

The Kelo-Cote layer® will normally dissipate as your skin cells naturally exfoliate, approximately in 24 hours. If necessary, gently washing with soap and water should remove any remainder prior to re-application.

Should I cover Kelo-Cote® with a plaster/dressing?

Close Icon

There is normally no need to use any dressings over Kelo-Cote® – no plasters, bandages or surgical tape are required, as Kelo-Cote® forms its own protective barrier.

However, if the scar is on an area of the body that is prone to being bumped and scraped, you may prefer to cover it with gauze or a silicone pad.

How long does it take for Kelo-Cote® to work?

Close Icon

The recommended minimum treatment time is 60–90 days. Larger and older scars may take longer and continued use is recommended if improvement is still seen after the initial 90 days.

Can Kelo-Cote® help with older scars?

Close Icon

Kelo-Cote® can help heal older scars as well as newer scars. However, older scars may take longer. If you are still seeing improvement after the initial 90 days, then continue to apply Kelo-Cote® until you are no longer seeing improvements.

For best results, start Kelo-Cote® as early as possible.

 

When should I start applying Kelo-Cote®?

Close Icon

Best results will occur when there is still healing taking place. Redness, itching, irritation, and scar growth are all signs of healing. If any of these signs are present, regardless of the age of the scar, Kelo-Cote® can improve the appearance of the scar. However, for best results we do recommend that you start Kelo-Cote® twice daily as soon as possible after your procedure.

 

Who is Kelo-Cote® suitable for?

Close Icon

Kelo-Cote® is suitable for use on children and people with sensitive skin. It is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the gel, which include Dimethicone Analogues, Silicone, Polysiloxanes and Silicon Dioxide.
