Help Your Surgical Scar Fade With KELO-COTE®
Looking After Your Surgical Scar
Two weeks after surgery your scar should be healing, but it can take from six weeks to three months before you’re fully healed. There are some things you can do during the healing process to help improve the appearance of your scar:
KELO-COTE® Scar Treatment
KELO-COTE® gel 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.
