I have an old nose scar due to a car accident and I've been using Dermatix Gel for 2 weeks to help remove it. What do you recommend as another solution?Jan 13, 2014
Dr. Paul Yazbek Otolaryngology (ENT)
Dermatix works on fresh scars, not old, your best bet is to do scar revision surgery, if it is annoying you.
Dr. Imad Shehadi Plastic Surgery
Your best bet is to have a plastic surgeon see the scar to advise you properly. Dermatix would work on more recent scars and usually will need to used for at least 2 to 3 months in order to see the result. In my mind most of these silicone gels are a waist of money, and I do not prescribe.
Dr. Mazen Hammoud Otolaryngology (ENT)
Carboxytherapy can help in reducing the scar, and in some cases scar revision surgery combined with Carboxytherapy .
