Just a bit of fact--everyone seems to have a favourite and even plastic surgeons and dermatologists tend to recommend one over the other but to me they are all the same. The biggest difference or rather only difference I have found is one that is called Kelo-cote because unlike the others, which are all inevitably a mix of zinc oxide (about 4%), silicone as dimethicone (4% is standard) and some sunscreen usually octinoxate. The kelocote is not much different BUT it acts like adhesive bandage and can be put on twice daily and forms essentially a silicone sheet which is the best proven method of scar improvement. Just my 2 pence/cents.
i have a question for you if you have started to use zeraderm gel.
How much time do you have to massage the scar until the gel is absorbed ? . they say you should massage the scar until it is not sticky, but even if massage for about minimum 10 minutes i feel like it still remains sticky.
And one more question for those who have tried zeraderm: has anyone used zeraderm for hypertrophic/keloid scars older than 5 months ? what were the results ?
It does remain a bit sticky, it's true.I've started to use zeraderm nearly one month ago; my operation was already 5 months old when someone told me about this gel.We have to use it for a long time, twice a day(between couple of weeks to few months). I don't see any difference at the moment, but I won't give up!
Eu zic ca merita incercat Puisor, se spune ca e foarte bun!
Good luck for all of you!
