There are many scar treatments available but when you look up most scar treatments there is a contraindication – “Do not use on open wounds“. It is normal to wait two to three weeks before commencing treatment of a scar.
Now there is Epicyn™ Scar & Wound Hydrogel. Unlike most scar treatments Epicyn™ can be used immediately after a wound has occurred. The components of Epicyn™ are Silicone – the Gold Standard for scar treatments and Hypochlorous Acid or HOCL. The Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) is a naturally occurring chemical in the body and is generated during the body’s defence against microbes – phagocytosis. HOCL has strong antimicrobial actions but will not harm the healing wound. In fact, HOCL is also anti-inflammatory and stops the production of Histamine – therefore it will also reduce the itch and inflammation associated with wound healing.
Epicyn™ with patented technology is intended for the management and reduction of new and existing hypertrophic and keloid scars.
Epicyn™ forms a protective barrier against physical, chemical and microbial invasion of the scar. It softens, flattens and reduces redness and relieves scar-associated itch and pain sensation.
Ideal for old and new scars from surgeries, injuries, bug bites, acne and acne scar treatment, cuts, scrapes, tattoo removal and much more. It helps reduce the appearance of old and new scars. With consistent use, even scars that are years old, and appear raised and discoloured, can become ﬂatter, smoother, less visible and closer to your skin’s natural colour and texture.
Epicyn™ is odourless, transparent, breathable and lightweight. It is suitable for all ages and skin types, including children, neonates and those with sensitive skin. It can be applied immediately after surgical procedures / suturing to assist in the prevention of wound site infections.
