What is DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel used for?
DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E is used to aid in the management of keloids and hypertrophic scars (such as those resulting from general surgical
procedures, trauma wounds and burns), after the wound has healed and the skin surface is intact.
How should DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel be used?
Wash the affected area and pat dry. DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E should be applied to clean, dry skin only. Gently massage a small amount of DermaScar ® PLATINUM C&E into the scar. If you apply too much gently wipe away any excess with a tissue in order to avoid staining of clothing. Apply twice daily, in the morning and evening. Once dry, DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E may be covered with cosmetic blush.
Are there any possible unwanted effects of DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E gel?
Rarely, the gel may cause redness, pain or irritation to the skin. If you are concerned about these or any other unwanted effects, consult your
pharmacist or doctor.
DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E should not be:
- Applied to open or fresh wounds.
- Placed in contact with mucous membranes or applied too close to the eyes.
- Applied over antibiotic skin preparations or other skin treatments and/or products.
If accidentally applied as per the above, cease using immediately and contact the poisons information line on 13 11 26.
How should DermaScar® PLATINUM C&E be stored?
- Keep out of reach of children.
- Keep gel away from heat.
- Store below 25°C.
- Do not use after the expiry date (EXP) printed on the pack.
Apply DermaScar® twice daily – in the morning and evening. DermaScar® must be applied to dry, intact skin. If you have a scar from surgery, check that the wound has healed first before applying DermaScar®. This is typically 10 to 14 days after surgery. Before applying DermaScar® clean the area first with mild soap and water and then pat dry. Place a pea-size amount of gel at the tip of the scar and gently spread thinly over the affected area. A pea-size amount is enough to cover a 12cm scar. Allow the gel to dry for 1 to 2 minutes. Once dry, DermaScar® may be covered with cosmetics or sunscreen.
