A scar is a permanent alteration in the structure of the skin, due to a change in the skin tissue as a result of a wound, and its consequent repair.
The development of the scars will be determined by different factors. First of all, the type of wound and how it was created is important. Larger wounds or wounds that have distorted the tissue, will cause larger scars or look worse.
Other factors that influence the growth and final appearance of the scar are: the type of skin, age, the affected area of the body, the tension to which the wound is subjected, the orientation and general factors such as the nutritional or immune condition.
Dermatological treatments help improve the appearance of a scar, but it is impossible to erase it completely.
The Trofolastin patches reduce and prevent the formation of hypertrophic and keloid scars from wounds of all kinds (surgical, infectious, trauma, etc.).
The patches are made of a polyurethane dressing, which contains two layers. A micro porous superficial layer and a deep layer created by acrylic material that facilitates its adherence to the skin.
They do not contain drugs or active ingredients, and they act through the pressure they exert on the scar and the humid microclimate they are able to form on the skin - facilitating its healing. In addition, they provide solar protection, to help avoid hyperpigmented scarring and skin aging caused by the sun.
First of all, we recommend that you choose the patch size of Trofolastin Scars that best suits the surface you need to cover.
