Kelo-cote® is a patented, transparent, self-drying silicone gel technology which improves the appearance of scars and prevents abnormal or excessive scar formation. Its main ingredient, silicone, is the No. 1 dermatologist-recommended scar-reduction treatment ingredient. Kelo-cote® works to diminish the appearance of hypertrophic scars and keloids, which have a raised and/or discolored appearance. These types of scars may result from surgery, injury, burns, acne, cuts, insect bites, and others. Kelo-cote® is self-drying, colorless and odorless. When used as directed, Kelo-cote® has been shown to soften and flatten raised scars, and reduce the redness associated with scars. Kelo-cote® is clinically tested, and effective for both old and new scars; it also is suitable for use on children and people with sensitive skin.
