The sooner a scar is treated, the greater the chance of positively influencing scar formation. Start applying Contractubex® as soon as the wound is closed and/or any stitches have been removed. The clear gel is easy and safe to apply.
Ideally, Contractubex® gel should be gently massaged in 2 to 3 times daily for at least 3 months. Contractubex® forms a discrete film that protects the sensitive scar tissue.
Apply Contractubex® only to wounds that are already closed. Avoid contact with eyes, the inside of the nose or mouth and other mucous membranes.
Start at the centre and work towards the edges, massaging the gel gently into the scar.
Continue with a small, circular motion until Contractubex® is completely absorbed.
Scar treatment needs patience, as the injured skin takes time to heal. After about 4 weeks, a reduction of redness can usually be observed; after two months, the scar tissue gradually becomes lighter, more elastic and flat.
Contractubex® is very safe and its tolerability has been proven in numerous clinical studies. Small children and even babies can be treated safely.
The treatment can also work on scars that are older. With older scars Contractubex® should be massaged in 3 times daily for at least 6 months.
