What kind of scars can Nourisil™ MD be used for?

Nourisil™ MD has been designed for the treatment and prevention of hypertrophic and keloid scars which result from medical and cosmetic surgery, wounds, trauma or burns.

How does Nourisil™ MD work?

When the skin is wounded, the tissues break, which causes a protein called collagen to be released. Collagen builds up where the tissue is damaged, helping to heal and strengthen the wound. New collagen continues forming for several months and the blood supply increases, causing the scar to become red, raised and lumpy. Silicone gel, such as Nourisil MD, can be used on healing skin (not open wounds) to help soften and flatten a scar. They can also relieve itching and discomfort.

Is Nourisil™ MD guaranteed to work for my scar?

No product can guarantee success however Nourisil™ MD is a Class I Medical Device which means the claims we make about the product’s ability to smooth flatten and fade stars MUST be based on evidence.

How long until I see results?
