Treatment depends on the scar size, freshness of scar and the conditions of scars, etc. Treating period of large, hard and old scars may need 3 to 6 months or even longer time. Treatment of scar requires a high degree of perseverance and active participation by patients with a view to achieving a noticeable result.
Mode of action:
The active ingredients in Contractubex are cepae extract, heparin and allantoin. Cepae extract is obtained from onions. It generates an anti-inflammatory, bactericidal effect. And it reduces swelling while preventing excessive growth of the connective tissue. Heparin loosens the tissue structure. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps to bind water to the scar tissue. Allantoin encourages wound healing and has a soothing effect. In older scars its most important effect is to replenish and regulate the extreme lack of water in the scar tissue, and to speed up blood flow.
The effects of the three ingredients enhance and complement each other. And the water-soluble ointment base allows the active ingredients to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. Contractubex does not leave behind a residue. Rather its protective film shields the sensitive scar tissue. In most cases, Contractubex treatments make scar tissues elastic again and restore most of their functionality. The earlier you start to treat the scar tissue with Contractubex the better the outcome will be.
How to use:
1. Apply a film of the gel on a cleaned scar for 3 to 4 times daily
2. Rub in the gel with the fingertips for about 2 to 3 minutes
3. Rub away from the middle to cover all the wound’s edges or along the length of the scar.
4. Rub in the gel with gentle pressure to increase the penetration of the active ingredients.
5. Properly massaging the scar should not cause any pain.
Fresh Scars: Treatment can be started just a few days after wound closure, or 8 to 10 days after an operation.
Old & hard Scars: It is highly recommended that the scar be covered with Contractubex and a bandage overnight to enhance deep penetration of the active ingredients.
