When an injury occurs…
Intact skin maintains normal hydration i.e. minimal transepidermal water loss (TEWL). 7
When the skin has been injured, the wound creates a gap in the skin’s protective barrier. This will result in an increase in transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
Increased water loss from the epidermis may lead to an increase in collagen production in the skin. Excessive collagen production can lead to abnormal scarring. 7
Silicone gel restores the barrier function of the wounded skin. This reduces the amount of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and excessive collagen production.
Silicone gel can help improve the appearance of scars.7
Giovene dries to form a thin, transparent, flexible, gas-permeable and water-resistant silicone sheet which adheres to the skin.7 It is universally recognised that silicone gel occludes and hydrates the area of application, which helps to reduce the appearance of scars. Silicone gels are recommended as the current gold standard option for hypertrophic scars and keloids. 9
Giovene contains Vitamin C ester which has a neutral pH that is non-irritating to the skin. This scar formula has been clinically proven to lighten scars and protect them from the environment. 1
