Silagen Gel +SPF30 is the first scar treatment to combine medical grade silicones with chemical-free mineral sunscreen. This fast drying gel will help flatten and smooth scars while reducing redness and itch. The added UV protection helps to prevent permanent hyperpigmentation of fragile new scar tissue that can occur even with incidental sun exposure. Silagen's non-irritating, chemical-free sunscreen is a safer option because it remains on the surface of the skin and is not absorbed into the skin. Silagen silicone Gel +SPF 30 can be used exclusively for the full course of treatment or alternated with other products in the Silagen Scar Refinement System, including Silagen Silicone Gel Sheeting. Do not use Silagen Silicone Gel +SPF 30 under Silagen Silicone Gel Sheeting or it will cause the Sheeting to lose adhesiveness. Use Silagen Silicone Gel +SPF 30 during the day and alternate with the Sheeting at night if desired.
