Skin is an important barrier for the human body. All kinds of operations, traumas, burns and dermatitis will all lead to skin damage and breakage. During the skin wound healing process, the body will release a protein called collagen for wound repair. When the skin damage comes to a certain extent, collagen synthesis and metabolism will be out of normal control but in hyperactively excessive collagen exudation instead, resulting in excessive proliferation of collagen fibers and thus forming a scar on the wound healing part. The scar extrudes from the normal skin in irregular shape and by form of red and hard benigh lumps and even with contracture, itching or pain. In case excessive growth, the scar might affect the appearance or lead to dysfunction or even cancer.
Structure of the Silica Gel Scar Therapy Patch
CareLife Silica Gel Scar Therapy Patch is a kind of biomimetic patch made of organosilicon with biological activity under the TTS technology. By means of molecular multiplexing technology, the patch multiplexes the heterogeneous collagen molecules with netted organic silicon, combined with collagen repair factor, to get the three-layer structure similar to the dermis, epidermis and stratum corneum of the skin, so as to slow down the collagen fiber hyperplasia and hydrate and decompose the irregular collagen fibers. Through the trilogy of softening, restoring and regeneration", it can awaken the memory of the skin to fully repair various scar tissues.
How Does theSilica Gel Scar Therapy Patch Remove Scars?
Silica gel can directly act on the scar surface. As a semi-permeable membrane, it can partly restrict the water permeability on the scar surface and promote the moisture accumulation under the scar epidermics, resulting in hydration. Studies have shown that using the silica gel patch can greatly reduce the number of the positive cells of the fibroblast1 growth factor (TGF 1), which indicates that the silica gel patch acts on scars possibly by adjusting the relationship between cell factors and fibroblasts. Experiments show that the silicone oil slowly released from the silica gel membrane can inhibit the strengthening of the fibroblasts inside the scar tissue, thereby inhibiting the formation of hypertrophic scars.
