Silicone Gel Therapy Research/Evidence
As a company Jobskin® is committed to supporting research and development. The Scarheal silicone gel product range, Scar FX® and ScarSil®, recently introduced to assist you with the management of scars. Scar FX® and ScarSil® gel is available on prescription from your doctor or pharmacist.
It is well documented that silicone gel can be used to improve the outcome of a scar by acting as a softening agent that renders the scar soft, flat, mobile and not hypersensitive. A reference list for the evidence to support the effectiveness is available as a PDF download below.
Even though there is a plethera of research showing the effectiveness of using silicone gel to improve scars, thus enhancing patient/client care and improving functional outcome, we at Jobskin would welcome and support a study or studies to look at the effectiveness of Scar FX® and ScarSil® alongside products you are already using, in terms of cost effectiveness, adhesive quality and scar improvement.
Our recent research, carried out in partnership with Bio-Med Sciences, manufacturer of Silon-Tex®, a silicone coated textile for customisation to pressure garments, is available to download below.
If you are interested in undertaking such a study please contact our Therapy Specialists and share your ideas.
