This Embrace Active Scar Defense review is going to take a closer look at the facts and details to learn more about how this scar treatment works and to see if it’s worth trying out for effective results. The manufacturer claims that their silicon strips feature unique, innovative technology that relieves tension which is the root cause of scarring.
The only two ingredients in this product are silicon and medical-grade adhesive. Silicon is believed to heal scars by increasing the hydration of the stratum corneum which facilitates regulation of fibroblast production and reduces collagen production. It also balances the expression of growth factors which can make a scar protrude and more obvious. Silicon prevents scars from worsening by protecting the scarred tissue from bacteria. Bacteria has the ability to cause excessive production in the scar tissue.
The manufacturer recommends washing your hands before applying and clipping any hairs in the effected area. Open the applicator and fold the sides and position the applicator over the scar. Once positioned, press and hold the applicator on your skin for thirty seconds. Continue holding the applicator firmly in place with your fingers along the visual guide strip then life the applicator from the skin. The dressing will remain in place over the scar. Each dressing lasts around ten days on average. For best results you should continue treatment for two months. You should not shower four hours after application or apply compression garments for 1-2 hours after application.
This product is meant for scars that are healed and is not intended for open incision lines, injuries or abraded skin.

Our Conclusive Review About Embrace Active Scar Defense
Embrace Active Scar Defense appears to be a decent scar treatment. It comes in strips that are designed to remain on for ten days for ongoing scar treatment and there are no known side effects which i always reassuring. However, we are put off to this product by the consumer feedback we saw. We found that the majority feeling towards this product is that is that the results are not worth the hefty price tag. Furthermore, while the manufacturer does offer a money back guarantee, their policy only applies to products that have not been opened. This means that if you purchase these strips, try them and are dissatisfied in any way, you cannot get your money back from the manufacturer. Considering the price and negative consumer feedback, choosing this product is risky. You are better off choosing a scar treatment that is backed by a strong manufacturer’s guarantee for consumer protection and one that has been shown to be effective.
