Frequently asked questions about Contractubex® Gel

Does Contractubex® Gel make the scar disappear completely?

No, a scar is permanent and will never disappear completely. However, Contractubex® Gel significantly reduces the visibility of scars. It is important to continue treatment for longer periods of time (3-6 months).

When will I see the first signs of success with Contractubex® Gel?

Scar treatment needs patience, as the injured skin takes time to heal. The first signs of treatment success with Contractubex® Gel are usually experienced as reduced redness, relief of tension and less itching. Temporary itching is, however, often a sign that a scar is healing well, and should not cause immediate concern.

How long should I apply Contractubex® Gel for?

To achieve the best possible results, apply Contractubex® Gel 2 to 3 times daily for at least 3 months. You can continue the treatment up to a year, if necessary. Contractubex® Gel is extremely well-tolerated, even in the course of long-term use.

Will I still be able to wear make-up during treatment with Contractubex® Gel?

Certainly. You just need to make sure you apply Contractubex® anti-scar gel before putting on your make-up. This allows the active ingredients to be absorbed into the skin as well as possible.

Does Contractubex® Gel work on older scars?

Yes, even scars that are over a year old can be treated. Some older scars dry out and become hard, in which case Contractubex® Gel should be massaged in 3 times daily for at least 6 months. Contractubex® Gel can also reduce a scar’s height and redness, and smooth the tissue so that your scar becomes less conspicuous. Combining Contractubex® Gel with ultrasound therapy improves effectiveness.

Can children be treated with Contractubex® Gel?

Yes, of course. Even toddlers or babies can be treated. Contractubex® Gel is very safe.

Is Contractubex® Gel clinically proven to work?

Yes, the clinical efficacy of Contractubex® Gel to prevent and treat scars has been proven by numerous clinical studies. Doctors recommend and prescribe Contractubex® Gel.

When do I use Contractubex® Gel and when the Contractubex Intensive Patch?

Both treatment methods are effective against scars. The intensive patch also offers an occlusion effect, is easy to apply overnight and is also suitable for hard-to-reach areas of the body. The gel, on the other hand, is lightly massaged into the scar tissue twice a day and is recommended for use on larger scars and scars above the joints.
