Mechanism of action¹⁵
Its performance is through the occlusion and hydration of the scar area, helping the process of renewal and regeneration of the dermis.¹⁵
SCAR FORMATION – STAGE 1
During this process, the affected area loses excessively water (1), which causes a disorderly production of collagen and repair cells (2), leading to the appearance of the scar.¹⁵
MEDGEL ACTION – STAGE 2
The silicone tapes, which are permeable to oxygen, assist in the organization and regeneration of the tissue during the remodeling phase of tissue repair. A preclinical study indicated that silicone gel promotes, through the occlusion of the skin (3), the hydration of epidermal keratinocytes (4), decreasing the expression of pro-fibrotic cytokines (IL-1β) and increasing the expression of antifibrotic cytokines (TNF-α).¹⁵
RESULT OF THE ACTION – STAGE 3
These cytokines work together to change the behavior of fibroblasts, causing collagen reorganization and, thus, smoothing the scar (5).¹⁵
