Believing is Achieving
Scars are the natural result of the body’s healing process. The problem is that they can often become raised, thick, discoloured, itchy and painful.
About Scar Treatment
The revolutionary CEREDERM Silicone Sheeting & Gel has been used by thousands of medical professionals and their patients around the world to treat scars and helps to lessen the appearance of old scars as well as preventing the formation of new ones.
What is CEREDERM?
CEREDERM’s proven silicone technology simulates the natural barrier function of healthy skin, hydrating scar tissue to soften the scar, shrinking, flattening and fading it.
