What is PurSil?
PurSil is a medical grade gel that can be used to effectively treat scars. This product combines the benefits of silicone elastomers and polyether urethanes to create a gel that is flexible, safe, and completely biocompatible. This means that you don’t have to worry about experiencing adverse side effects or any other kind of discomfort throughout the course of your scar revision treatment.
How Does it Work?
PurSil is to be applied to the scarred area the patient wants to treat at least once a day. As this product is absorbed by the skin, it creates an occlusion in the scarred area. This occlusion is a safe space where the scar tissue can begin to hydrate and mature. Collagen synthesis occurs, simultaneously correcting the scar both physiologically and cosmetically.
What are the Benefits of Scar Revision with PurSil®?
PurSil® offers the patients that use it a broad variety of unique benefits. Scars rarely go away on their own. While there are a number of treatments available today that can be used to improve the appearance of scars, these treatments may be somewhat painful or uncomfortable to undergo.
With PurSil®, patients can gradually improve the appearance of their scars in the comfort and privacy of their homes. And because this gel gradually heals scars from the inside out, patients can take comfort knowing that the results they obtain are both natural and long-lasting.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
It is important for patients to keep in mind that PurSil® takes time to improve the appearance of a scar. Typically, patients begin to see positive results 21 days after beginning to use this product. Optimal results are usually achieved after two or three months of regular, daily application.
