Looking After Your Burn Scar

Some burns can leave you with a scar for the rest of your life. There are some things you can do during the healing process to help minimise the appearance of your burn scar:

  • While the skin heals, keep the area clean and don’t apply any creams or greasy substances.†

  • Don’t burst any blisters as this can lead to infection.†

  • You should try to avoid exposing the damaged skin to direct sunlight as this may cause it to blister. It’s especially sensitive during the first year after the injury.†

  • Your healthcare professional will advise you about the best way to care for your burn.†

  • After your burn has healed you can apply a silicone treatment such as KELO-COTE® Spray. The spray formulation can be applied to the scar without rubbing or touching.

KELO-COTE® Scar Treatment

KELO-COTE® is an advanced formula silicone treatment for the management and prevention of scars. It helps soften, flatten and smooth raised scars whilst maintaining the moisture balance and elasticity of the skin. It also reduces discolouration and redness whilst relieving the itching, discomfort and pain associated with scars. KELO-COTE® can be used on old and new scars for up to 4 years. The recommended minimum treatment time is 60 to 90 days.

  • How soon can I use KELO-COTE® after injury?

    It is best to use KELO-COTE® after the wound has healed and there are no scabs remaining, or after your sutures are removed. With burns you need to wait until the skin has healed over.


  • Will KELO-COTE® make my scar disappear?

    KELO-COTE® advanced formula is designed to improve the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar. We cannot guarantee that it will make your scar disappear completely.

  • Is KELO-COTE® suitable for children?

    Yes, KELO-COTE® is suitable for use on children.

  • How long do I need to use KELO-COTE® for to see an improvement?

    The recommended minimum treatment time for KELO-COTE® is 60 to 90 days. If you continue to see improvement at the end of the 90 days you can continue treating your scar. For older scars it is likely that you will need to continue for longer than 90 days.

  • Does KELO-COTE® offer sun protection for my scar?

    KELO-COTE® Scar Gel UV has added SPF 30 to protect scars from the aggravating effects of the sun. It is important to reapply sun protection to the scar.

  • Will people notice KELO-COTE® on my skin?

    KELO-COTE® spray and gel are colourless and invisible when dry. KELO-COTE® UV is slightly cloudy due to the inclusion of the UV.
