All deeper skin lesions result in scar formation often accompanied by itching and pain.
Recent insights show that frequent massage after the application of topically applied cremes can reduce scar formation.
- soothes itching and tension sensations
- makes scar smoother and less apparent
- allows a blood flow enhancing massage and thus softens rigid scar tissue
- moisturizes the skin and promotes its regeneration
- suitable for use on fresh and old scar tissue
- can be used on extensive scars arising from burns
Contrakel® is suitable for the treatment of hypertrophic and atrophic scars and keloids. Contrakel® adresses scar formation on three levels
Contrakel®: triple scar reduction approach
Level 1: Massage – enhances blood flow and reduces scar formation
- Contrakel®'s physical properties enable a gentle massage of the scar tissue without pulling tissue
- Contrakel® is enriched with cholesterol and olive oil which facilitate skin softening
Level 2: Film effect – elevates skin moisture content
- Contrakel® forms a tight film maintaining the physiological hydration of skin tissue
Level 3: Skin regeneration
- Allantoin stimulates the regeneration of skin tissue and soothes the typical itching
- Urea supports moisture content
- Vitamin A improves the functional integrity of skin cells and prevents excessive keratinization
Instruction for use
Postoperatively, immediately start cooling the wound. This minimizes the scar and die edges become less prominent.
Particularly, larger scars tend to rapidly lose moisture which result in a loss of elaticity. This creates the sensation of tension in the scar tissue.
- apply Contrakel® only on closed wounds
- gently massage the tissue for 5-10 minutes
- repeat the application and massage multiple times during a day (min. 2-3 times)
- depending on the size of the scar continue the treatment for 6-12 months
