Kelo-Cote is an advance scar formula that greatly reduces redness, flattens raised scars and softens the scars as well. It is a patented topical silicone gel that will manage and can also prevent abnormal scar formation and reduce incidents of hypertrophic scarring and keloid formation. It has been used to manage scars from trauma burns as well as post surgical.
Indications for Kelo-Cote include keloid, hypertrophic scarring, burns, acne scars, stretch marks, scarring from plastic surgery, augmentation, reduction, and post-laser peel redness. Also, pregnancy, abdominoplasty, C-section, mastectomy, hysterectomy, body contouring and cleft lip scarring. The Kelo-Cote spray or gel can be used twice a day and Dr. Linder uses it after the sutures have been removed, usually on postop day 14 through 17.
Other important differences with Kelo-Cote patented silicone gel formula from other scar treatments are that it self-dries to a waterproof gas permeable membrane and acts like an extra layer of skin which ensures a constant contact time to the entire surface of the scar, which allows it to work 24 hours a day.
