Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.
Bepanthen Scar Treatment has been developed using scientific recommendations for scar management. Bepanthen Scar Treatment helps to prevent new scars from becoming red and raised and to help visibly reduce existing red and raised scars in three ways:
Bepanthen Scar Treatment combines this triple action resulting in smoother, softer and flatter scars.
Bepanthen Scar Treatment is a water in silicone emulsion which is intended to be used on your wound only after it is closed in order to prevent the formation of a red and raised scar (hypertrophic scar).
Scars less than 1 month old. Wound completely closed.
Gently apply a thin layer of the silicon gel over the scar. Apply twice daily. Continue use until scar is one month old. Then follow treatment option for scars older than one month (Below).
Scars older than 1 month. Wound completely closed.
Use the massage roller to gently massage the surface of the scar a few times. Apply a thin layer of the silicon gel over the scar. Apply twice daily.
Use this product for at least 2 months. Continuous use will help achieve the best results.
PRECAUTIONS: Do not use on open wounds and mucosa. Do not use close to eyes. Do not use in case of known allergies to any of the ingredients. Do not use massage roller on freshly closed wounds (which have been closed for less than one month) as the newly formed skin is still too fragile and so there is a risk that the wound reopens. If application causes discomfort or pain discontinue use. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and seek medical advice if necessary. In case of accidental administration into the eyes, on open wounds or mucosa, flush with large amounts of water. For external use only. Keep out of reach and sight of children.
To clean the Massage Roller you can use a wet or dry soft tissue and wipe it thoroughly. Do not rinse the ball directly under water. Do not detach the Massage Roller.
The silicone gel is free from preservatives, colourants and fragrances. Suitable for use on adults and children.
