Mechanism of action¹

FORMATION OF THE SCAR – STAGE 1

The normal cell structure must be aligned and organized. However, when an injury, cut, or burn occurs, this process changes. The affected area loses too much water (1), which causes a disorder in the production of collagen and repairs the cells, leading to the appearance of scars (2)

MEDGEL ACTION – STAGE 2

With the help of Medgel, the process goes through an organization and regeneration of tissues. Through the occlusion of the silicone tape (3), an improvement in the hydration of the skin is achieved, normalizing the production of collagen and repairing the cells..

RESULT OF THE ACTION – STAGE 3

The result is a better cutaneous reorganization of collagen and, consequently, of tissue (4), leading to an improvement in the appearance of the scar and keloid (5) in up to 8 weeks.
