Kelo-cote is an advanced scar gel that offers an easy and effective way to reduce the appearance of scars and heal the skin.
Kelo-cote was created by Advanced Bio-Technologies, Inc, which is a
privately held biopharmaceutical company based in Georgia. Advanced
Bio-Technologies specializes in creating products for the treatment of
scars with unique patent protected formulas based on cross-linking
Unlike traditional silicone gel sheets, Kelo-Cote is very easy to use,
and is free of the limitations associated with gel sheets, such as the
difficulty of usage on the joints and face. Silicone gel works by
protecting the scar from external stimuli and helps to modulate the
cells which contribute to scar growth. Kelo-Cote gel dries to a
waterproof and gas-permeable layer that acts as an extra layer of skin.
For those looking for an easy way to reduce scarring, Kelo-Cote is a new
advancement in scar treatment. This gel will flatten and smooth the
scar, while also maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the
surrounding skin. This gel can be used to treat scars as soon as skin is
closed, or when stitches are removed.
My thoughts? I prefer the spray to the gel just for ease and less clean up. I applied the product twice daily as is recommended which was easy after jumping out of the shower. The product dried as I applied my makeup. As I said above, my scars are not all that visible so I didn't see a major improvement in the appearance but there was not much to improve upon. I would love to see the product used immediately following a surgery to see how effective it is on fresh scars. I do plan to continue to use the product just because I'm curious to see if there is a change after the 90 days of use that is recommended by the manufacturer.
Kelo-cote can be purchased at SkinCareRX.com.
