Gel reducing the unsightly effects of scarring.
The Gelskin gel sheet is designed to provide scar control under a compressive garment. It offers a smooth and polished contact surface. The adhesive effect is controlled to avoid pain when gel is removed from the skin. A simple water wash of the gel sheet reactivates its adhesion for several weeks. It help reduce the unwanted effects of scarring and promotes better healing. It softens the skin and facilitates hydratation by creating an occlusive area around your scar and also promotes micro massage to the scar.
GELSKIN & KELOGEL are the same products. Kelogel was 1mm thick only and Gelskin 1 mm and 3mm. If you need 6 mm contact us for special request.
