Contractubex® Scar Gel Makes The Difference

Contractubex® Scar Gel Makes The Difference

Contractubex® works deep inside the skin, and reduces scars thanks to its

pharmacologically active ingredients (extractum cepae, heparin & allantoin).

The Contractubex® lasting triple effect means:

  • Prevention of excessive scar tissue formation5
  • Reduction in redness, itching and the feeling of tension6,12
  • Lasting improvement of scar appearance5

For best possible results, treatment should be started as soon as the wound is closed or the stitches are removed. Contractubex® – for nearly invisible scars.

 

       Silicone

  • Silicone foil has been used to cover wounds to reduce scarring since 1981.1
  • A meta-analysis of studies conducted on the effectiveness of silicone foil concluded that the data from 15 studies were unconvincing.1
  • A recent study showed no long-term advantage of silicone spray treatment in the appearance of scars. At a follow-up time point several months after the end of treatment, the normal wound-healing process taking place in the placebo-treated control scars resulted in an equally good appearance as seen in the silicone-treated scar.2
  • Hydration and occlusion do aid scar-healing, but there is no evidence that silicone aids this process.3

Contractubex®

  • Scar tissue has been treated successfully with Contractubex® since 1959. Contractubex® is the world’s No. 1 scar treatment.4
  • The active ingredients in Contractubex® promote the healing process with the triple effect, which prevents excessive scar tissue formation, reduce redness, itching and the feeling of tension, and makes the scar smoother and improves elasticity.5, 6
  • Controlled trials on burns, hypertrophic scars, keloids, skin-grafts and scars after pediatric thorax surgery plus numerous observational studies demonstrate the reliable efficacy of Contractubex®.5 – 9
  • Even scars that are several years old may improve visibly after treatment including Contractubex®.10
