My Favorite Gel Product’s for Scar Care


Procikel Gel

This is the gel that my physio highly recommended to me for my aftercare. However it  is not commonly recognized in the USA under that specific name. However, similar products with comparable active ingredients are widely available. These alternatives contain silicone, which is a proven ingredient for scar management.

Equivalent Products in the USA:

  1. Mederma Advanced Scar Gel LINK 
    • Ingredients: Allium cepa (onion) bulb extract.
    • Usage: Helps improve the texture, color, and overall appearance of scars.
  1. ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheets and Gel LINK
    • Ingredients: Medical-grade silicone.
    • Usage: Reduces scar appearance by creating a protective barrier that keeps the skin hydrated.
  1. Kelo-Cote Gel  LINK
    • Ingredients: Polysiloxanes, silicone dioxide.
    • Usage: Forms a silicone barrier to soften and flatten scars, while also reducing redness and discomfort.
  1. Dermatix Silicone Gel  LINK
    • Ingredients: Silicone.
    • Usage: Effective for the prevention and treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids.

Benefits of Silicone-Based Products:

  • Hydration: Keeps the scar tissue hydrated, promoting a smoother texture.
  • Protection: Forms a protective barrier to reduce bacterial invasion and further skin damage.
  • Reduces Redness: Helps in diminishing discoloration associated with scars.
  • Softens Scars: Helps to flatten and soften raised scars.

How to Use:

  • Clean the area: Ensure the scar area is clean and dry.
  • Apply a thin layer: Use a small amount of gel and spread it evenly over the scar.
  • Allow to dry: Let the gel dry completely before covering it with clothing or applying other products.
  • Consistent application: For best results, use as directed, often twice daily.


  • Dermatologist advice: It’s advisable to consult with a dermatologist before starting any new scar treatment to ensure it is appropriate for your specific type of scar and skin condition.

By using these silicone-based scar treatments, you can achieve similar benefits to those provided by Procikel gel, supporting effective scar management and improved appearance over time.
