If you have tough surgical scars that you want to go away, you can use a silicon-based gel to improve and diminish the appearance of your scars, whether hypertrophic or keloid. You can use this quick-drying gel over your entire body, even in areas that are more difficult to treat like your face and arms. Check out our review below of Kelo-Cote Advanced Formula to see its effectivity and usefulness in treating your scars.
The two ingredients in this gel are:
- Silicon Dioxide
Both of these are combined to make a product known as silicone. It’s perfect for sensitive skin and also provides moisturization to help irritated skin. Its use in many skin care products is well-known as it is safe, has positive results and helps smooth skin and fix discoloration. Although having just silicone in a scar treatment is acceptable, other skin care products used to help diminish scars contain skin-healing ingredients that can speed up treatment. Other gels contain aloe vera, vitamin C and E, and oils from sunflower and jojoba. These extra ingredients look after your skin and maintain its overall look.
Directions to use this gel is to clean and dry the area you want to apply the cream, and then put a thin layer of the gel on the scars. You should apply this just twice a day for sixty to ninety days for best results. We want to point out that other scar gels can be applied three to four times daily as needed, which can speed up the healing process. Perhaps just applying this gel twice a day would slow down results.
One bottle of .35 oz costs $26.25 on Amazon and $27.50 on Factory OTC’s website. Through Amazon there are bulk prices offered; two bottles cost $50, lowering the price of each tube down by $1.25. It also reduces the price of each tube to $24 if you buy 6 products altogether. However, none of this is detailed on the website, nor can you purchase this product through the website.
Guarantee & Feedback
There is no guarantee available for this gel, unfortunately. If this product doesn’t work for a customer, there is no way to return it and get a refund. This is unlike other products that come with guarantees from two months to a whole year, depending on the company. A great benefit of having such a long guarantee is the ability to return a product you see isn’t working. Especially with scars, it takes a while to see results, so products with guarantees for two months or longer are much more attractive.
We looked at customer reviews on Amazon, which had a majority of positive ratings. A few people had negative feedback about how slow the product works, and some said that it doesn’t work at all.
Our Conclusive Review About Kelo-Cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel
This advanced formula works well with diminishing scars with the use of its silicone ingredients. It seems like it is very effective and gentle on the skin, which is important especially for customers applying this gel to post-surgical scars. However, its lack of key ingredients which improve the overall health of the skin are lacking; other products that contain aloe vera and plant oils help reduce scars and treat the surrounding skin as well. Customers should hesitate at the lack of guarantee or discounts before buying this product.
