Review and Giveaway: Kelo-cote® scar reduction treatment

| Be healthy, Closed competitions, Lifestyle, Reviews, Sponsored

Having had an unplanned c-section with N, I’ve obviously got a scar.  I was lucky enough to have one of the best surgeons at doing the op in the area according to a few people I spoke to, and considering N’s size, it was a relatively small cut.  The scar was never really bumpy as some people’s are, and the actual scar has faded really well (to be expected after 2 years, but it faded really quickly).

But I was interested to try out the Kelo-cote® scar gel I was sent to see what would happen to my scar.  I also have a leg ‘scar’ or gouge that is a different colour to my leg from a trip a few years ago, so I’ll be trying the gel on that as well.

I’m only a couple of days in, but compared to other branded scar oils this is definitely much thicker and easier to put on.  I find with the oils they just run off, but with this you rub it over the scar.  It does feel thick and although it’s not greasy, it doesn’t seem to soak into the skin but just sit on top as it dries.  It will be interesting to see how it improves the appearance after a few weeks.

Kelo-cote® is a clinically proven silicone gel, used with the aim of reducing scars, with best results seen after 3 months.  You can use it on new or old scars – any type of scar can benefit.  After it’s applied, it dries like a top layer of skin to protect the underlying layers of skin, protecting the scar area as it heals.  It’s benefits include:

  • odourless and transparent
  • suitable for use on children, pregnant women, and sensitive skin
  • can be used on scars from c-sections, burns, wounds etc
  • easy to use, twice daily application recommended
  • wide usage in the NHS for burns treatment
  • can be used as soon as stitches have been removed and wound is closed.

It’s available in several different options and formats: spray, gels x2 sizes and a UV protection version.  All can be purchased from http://www.kelo-cote.co.uk.

    I have a big keloid scar on my shoulder as a result of planned surgery getting infected and needing further surgery. Its red still 4 years down the line, and obvious unless I wear t-shirts even on hot days, which I’d prefer to wear vest tops. I also have stretch marks on my stomach and hips, so would like to try it on all them too.

    My daughter is in the process of having a large birthmark on her leg removed (we’ve had 2 out of 4 operations so far)- we’d love to try this to minimise her scar tissue.
