Kelo-cote

Kelo-cote® is a clinically proven, silicone gel scar reduction treatment.

Kelo-cote® gently softens and flattens raised scares while reducing their redness and discolouration.
For treating scars associated with;

  • Cosmetic procedures
  • C-sections
  • Cuts
  • Burns

Kelo-cote® is transparent and odourless. It's also easy and painless to apply and is suitable for use on children, pregnant women and even on sensitive skin types.

What is Kelo-cote® made of?

Kelo-cote Gel

Kelo-cote® features the patented Siliclear Complex ™, a precise blend of bio-inert and bio-compatible silicone compounds, namely polysiloxane, silicone dioxide and non-volatile silicone components. It is therefore suitable for the use on children or people with sensitive skin

How does Kelo-cote® work?

Kelo-cote ® rapidly dries to form a custom fitted silicone sheet; this silicone gel sheet layer is gas permeable, flexible and waterproof. Kelo-cote ® forms a bond with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells) forming a protective barrier against chemical, physical and microbial invasion of the scar site while assisting with hydration. This creates an environment that allows the scar to mature through normalized collagen synthesis cycles, and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.

How long will it take for a scar to improve?

When using Kelo-cote ®, the recommended minimum treatment time is 60-90 days. Larger and older scars may take longer and continued use is recommended if improvement is still seen after the initial 90 days.

How should Kelo-cote ® be applied?

  • Ensure that the affected area is clean and dry.
  • Apply Kelo-cote ® to the area as a very thin layer and allow to dry.
  • Apply Kelo-cote ® twice daily.
  • For maximum effect, Kelo-cote ® Gel should have 24 hour contact with the skin.
  • Once dry, Kelo-cot ®e can be covered with pressure garments, sun block or cosmetics.
  • If Kelo-cote ® has not dried within 4-5 minutes, you have probably used too much. Gently remove the excess and allow the drying process to continue.
